20 Reasons Why You Should Date Solo Women Travelers

20 Reasons Why You Should Date Solo Women Travelers

Women who travel alone have experienced the world in completely unique ways. They develop traits that shape them into strong women. Having said that, they have a lot of characteristics that help relationships grow and flourish. Below are reasons you should date women who travel alone.

1. They are independent

It’s seems like the most obvious one, but it’s true. Women who travel alone don’t depend on anyone to get their work done. They are used to depending on themselves and when they are in relationships it’s no different. They don’t depend solely on their partners and contribute equally which makes for a good relationship.

2. They are patient

Hours of waiting around, flight connections, and misplaced baggage makes them incredibly patient. They are used to facing chaotic situations and are able to maintain their composure. When they are in relationships, this patience allows them to be calmer in the face of any issues that arise.

3. They aren’t afraid of being alone

They enjoy quiet solitude from time to time because they are used to being in empty airports at the crack of dawn. When they are in relationships, they like having time to themselves and are fine with being alone. In relationships, they don’t mind having time apart from their partners, which makes for a healthy relationship.

4. They are good problem solvers

Because they have been faced with countless issues whilst traveling alone, they have had to deal with them alone and have developed good problem solving skills. This helps them tackle day to day issues with ease. When in relationships, they are able to prevent any arguments from starting by solving problems before they start.

5. They look at the world differently

Because they have traveled alone, they have spent a lot of time reflecting and absorbing the beauty of the world. They are able to look passed small flaws and see the bigger picture. When in relationships, this allows them to be more accepting as they understand that flaws are part of being human.

6. They are appreciative

They are used to being by themselves and so they are used to doing things for themselves. They don’t expect anything of anyone. This makes them appreciate it when their partners do simple things for them. Appreciation makes for good relationships.

7. They are comfortable with change

Women who travel alone are constantly in changing environments. They are able to adapt to changes quickly. When they are in relationships, sudden changes in circumstance don’t upset them and they are able to adapt quickly. This avoids any tension and keeps the relationship healthy.

As they travel by themselves, they have learnt to be confident. Confidence allows them to love themselves and thus love people around them. This makes for stable, healthy relationships.

9. They know themselves well

Traveling alone has given them time to grow and learn things about themselves. Women who travel alone are fully aware of who they are and what they want. Because they know themselves, they are able to be settled when they are in relationships and form healthy bonds.

They have seen different parts of the world and thus have been exposed to different cultures. This makes them open to different ideas. This helps in relationships as they are able to understand their partners point of view better.

11. They can protect themselves

They have had to take care of themselves because of all the solo travel and therefore are fully capable of protecting themselves. This gives them strength within themselves. When they are in relationships, this helps them feel independent, which makes for happier relationships.

Traveling alone forces you to organize your money well. Women who travel alone develop this skill. Therefore in relationships they experience less tension when it comes to money.

Women who travel alone have learnt to manage their time well and plan ahead. This enables them to be good planners, which helps ease any tension that arises in relationships.

They are open to try different things because they are more cultured due to their solo travel. They see the importance in experiencing new things. This helps keep relationships fresh and therefore healthy.

When things get difficult, they don’t back down. This is a skill they learnt while they travel alone as they have had to face many challenging situations that they have overcome. When they face obstacles in relationships they work at it instead of walking away.

Because they have experienced a lot of the world alone, they have many interesting stories to share. Therefore relationships with women who travel alone are never boring because of all their experiences they have to share.

7 Ways To Deal With Negative People

7 Ways To Deal With Negative People

Some people will have a rain cloud hanging over them, no matter what the weather is outside. Their negative attitude is toxic to your own moods, and you probably feel like there is little you can do about it.

But that couldn’t be farther from the truth.

If you want to effectively deal with negative people and be a champion of positivity, then your best route is to take definite action through some of the steps below.

1. Limit the time you spend with them.

First, let’s get this out of the way. You can be more positive than a cartoon sponge, but even your enthusiasm has a chance of being afflicted by the constant negativity of a friend.

In fact, negativity has been proven to damage your health physically, making you vulnerable to high levels of stress and even cardiac disease. There’s no reason to get hurt because of someone else’s bad mood.

Though this may be a little tricky depending on your situation, working to spend slightly less time around negative people will keep your own spirits from slipping as well.

2. Speak up for yourself.

Don’t just absorb the comments that you are being bombarded with, especially if they are about you. It’s wise to be quick to listen and slow to speak, but being too quiet can give the person the impression that you are accepting what’s being said.

3. Don’t pretend that their behavior is “OK.”

This is an easy trap to fall into. Point out to the person that their constant negativity isn’t a good thing. We don’t want to do this because it’s far easier to let someone sit in their woes, and we’d rather just stay out of it.

But if you want the best for this person, avoid giving the false impression that their negativity is normal.

4. Don’t make their problems your problems.

Though I consider empathy a gift, it can be a dangerous thing. When we hear the complaints of a friend or family member, we typically start to take on their burdens with them.

This is a bad habit to get into, especially if this is a person who is almost exclusively negative. These types of people are prone to embellishing and altering a story in order to gain sympathy.

Why else would they be sharing this with you?

5. Change the subject.

When you suspect that a conversation is starting to take a turn for the negative, be a champion of positivity by changing the subject. Of course, you have to do this without ignoring what the other person said.

Acknowledge their comment, but move the conversation forward before the euphoric pleasure gained from complaining takes hold of either of you.

6. Talk about solutions, not problems.

Sometimes, changing the subject isn’t an option if you want to deal with negative people, but that doesn’t mean you can’t still be positive.

I know that when someone begins dumping complaints on me, I have a hard time knowing exactly what to say. The key is to measure your responses as solution-based.

You can do this by asking questions like, “Well, how could this be resolved?” or, “How do you think they feel about it?”

Use discernment to find an appropriate response that will help your friend manage their perspectives.

7. Leave them behind.

Sadly, there are times when we have to move on without these friends, especially if you have exhausted your best efforts toward building a positive relationship.

If this person is a family member, you can still have a functioning relationship with them, of course, but you may still have to limit the influence they have over your wellbeing.

That being said, what are some steps you’ve taken to deal with negative people? Let us know in the comments.
