British traveler Jon Howe recalls his experience dating a fellow long-term adventurer, Filipino Kach Medina.
What was supposed to be a two-week visit for them has since turned into almost two years together Back in 2005 and for about 10 years before, I was living in the UK, studying architecture and working 9-to-5s in different architectural practices.
I instantly felt she was different from all of the girls I met while backpacking, and we hit it off straight away.
One thing I can say about online dating is that it teaches you about yourself. I get the notifications on my phone, but I'm rocking a blackberry POS so I can't go to the site. Gee, now he knows all sorts of shit about me and I know nothing about him.
I like road trips, traveling, knitting, crocheting, lazy weekend SVU marathons, playing tourist, and feeling ridiculously accomplished after a good visit to the gym. In short, Roy has helped me add to my list of turn offs. Mirrors ask questions, consistently bouncing the conversation back to you. I can tell he wasn't listening to me because I have NEVER met a man who can knit or crochet.
I like sitting in a chair at Barnes and Noble and reading for as long as possible befoer I go back to reality. I mean yeah he CLAIMS to like all the same stuff as me but that's obviously because he wasn't really paying attention.
It forces you to express why this guy is giving you the oogies of why that hottie should notice you.
As in a character in the Sunday Comics who isn't that funny or interesting but that I keep reading it in hopes it'll get better plus the other characters are okay: I'm good. Their answers are always a variation of "I like that too." It's annoying as all hell because then the conversation is full of awkward pauses and you know what I start to think?

I decided it was time for a serious change in my life, so I saved for a year, sold my car and anything else that could be sold, bought a one-way ticket and left the UK with nothing but my backpack.
It was whilst travelling through Laos by motorbike with my best friend that I stumbled across this young Filipino backpacker.
