Date A Boy Who Travels

Date a boy who travels. But really? Who wants a boy who think of little else but holidays and trips, all the time?

You might not be impressed by his practical clothes nor tattered backpack. Neither by his many weekends to out-of-town places and day trips. He might not have a flashy car bring you around, or a big watch to impress the people around you.

But behind that earnest smile and those twinkling eyes, lies a curious mind that will want to know you as you are, right now, and can take you places, right after.

For he who travels has long developed a deep sense of appreciation for all things around him, big and small, new and old.
