I have to admit, I usually do not feel very attractive with a heavy big backpack weighing me down, or with my hair standing in all directions after some days without a shower. You might be with me on this one? But it now turns out that we travelers actually are more appealing than the average person.
A study done by Intrepid Travel found that eight of ten (79%) at the dating site MySingleFriend.com found a potential partner more attractive if their dating profile listed an interest in travel.
Why is this? As many as 89 %, nine in ten, said that they found people that travel more attractive due to that they are more adventurous. 84 % said it was because the travelers were thought to be more curious about the world, 74 % because travelers are more open minded and 68 % because they are cultured. While, 19 % admitted that they find travelers more attractive because it means that their potential partner has money to spend on luxuries.
I have to say that also when I was single, I was looking for a partner that loved to travel and had travelled a lot. That my husband had travelled a lot in South America and for months in Europe was crucial for me, and this made him much more attractive in my eyes.
What do you think, do you find people that travel more attractive?
