    Women and their travel addiction

    I posted this in another forum and got no answer.

    It seems that many women are out of control when it comes to travel. During my longest relationship I traveled with my ex at least once every 6 mos. While I do enjoy travel it seems most women enjoy way more than I do to the point of an unhealthy addiction. I thought about letting my girl in my next LTR go on her own but the last time I did that it caused problems. Is there a way to handle this like getting women to settle down a little and not travel so much? Why are they so obsessed with travel? Or maybe there are some that aren't that obsessed and I just haven't met them yet?

    This brings up another question. How do they afford this? There are so many on social media that constantly display their travel photos. I've even seen some run up their own credit cards to do this. In other cases it's not so clear. I am guessing some of the women have men throwing gifts at them.

    Who has direct knowledge of this? Are there really hidden men behind the scenes funding these trips? Is it like a sugar daddy/sugar baby type of arrangement or more like dating but only if certain benefits are in play? Or are they just throwing all fiscal responsibility out the window and using up their credit?

    you can take a decent trip for like $1500-$2500

    Setting aside $300-$400/mo for [insert hobby here] isn't that hard for most people

    If you keep dating women who like travel a lot more than you, time for different women. I am not a travelling guy and don't have much problem.

    Well I should have specified examples. There were women I had in mind who I know must have spent way more than this. One is a friend who admitted she would run out of money soon and recently posted on FB she was broke after her last trip. She went on many international trips in only a few months while not making much money. Another is a woman I dated for a few months. Her travel last year included week long trips (at a minimum) to India, Vegas, Aruba, Puerto Rico with a Miami detour, and several shorter trips of a few days around the country. Seems like that would cost a lot more! And I know she doesn't make that much money.

    I'm just going to assume there are men behind the scenes who fund these trips and I did well to date women w/o having to pay for these trips and chalk up the obsession with travel as another flaw of females.

    I agree. They love to travel. And sometimes , there is someone who funds those trips.

    I like to research social behavior especially when it comes to women. Doesn't seem like a big deal.

    Yeah, some women can afford it because guys give them a trip as a present, which is always exciting for women. I don't know why but its coded in our system. Most probably because we love to receive attention and to feel special and this is a way we understand that a guy is really into us and wants to travel with us, to show us the world. The other thing is that there is a bit of a jealousy going around. When we see other women travel and having fun we want to be like that and post that kind of pics and this is why.

    All the addictions aren't predictable and it's impossible to generalize them. That's why I see no point in it. But what I want to add is when it comes to traveling it's better to have a zip code map worldpostalcode.com. It helps to determine your current location precisely. I mean, address, zip code. It's useful when you are abroad.

    I've noticed this happens a lot on Tinder. Women always say they love travelling but let's be honest, there aren't many people on Earth that don't love it.

    Is there a way to handle this like getting women to settle down a little and not travel so much?
    There are many styles of traveling and reasons for traveling; here I suppose you are talking about traveling for pleasure, with a trolley and sleeping in hotels.

    Personally I enjoy traveling and I met and meet many people both men and women who enjoy this. From the perspective of one who enjoys exploring our planet, the passion for traveling cannot be taken away from a person - either we are raised with it by someone in our family who traveled a lot, either we are introduced to it by someone we meet, and in both cases remains inside of us and it feels like we need it in order to keep our life in balance. So, ProtoMatter, when you meet a woman who enjoys traveling there is nothing to do to change that. So given this, this fits into the "standards" category. What are the standards, the minimum requirements, that your type of woman must meet in order to be taken into consideration by you. Because of this, to increase the chances of meeting your type of woman, since you don't like traveling maybe is a good idea to take your list of standards and write on it "she must not like traveling much".

    How do they afford this?
    If I tell you that there are people who from the start allocate zero money to the logistic aspect of traveling would you believe me? Such people found ways to move around without spending anything at all on transportation - they spend only on food and accommodation.
    I met travelers who in 30 days on the road spent less than 100 EUR. Normal people like anybody else, but that have something that differentiates them from the mass: they think out of the box. This allowed them to find ways to travel with only little money.

    Are there really hidden men behind the scenes funding these trips?
    All the men and women that love to travel that I met they had nobody to fund their trips; they all did some sort of work (most of them as freelancers) to fund themselves.
