Finding Love in the Age of the Digital Nomad

A March 2022 survey conducted by OnePoll, on behalf of Exodus Travels, revealed that 33% of Americans that traveled internationally admitted to having a vacation romance, while 23% said they married someone they met while traveling!

From dating apps and travel clubs to hostels and volunteering, digital nomads have many different options to meet other people.

If you’re constantly on the move, finding love through a dating app or website may be an option. According to Statista, there were 43.4 million dating app users in the United States in 2020, which is expected to increase to 53.3 million by 2025.

Try a Dating App

Stay Clear of Hookup Apps

Not all dating sites are created equal. Each has its own unique audience. For example, avoid dating apps such as DOWN, which are known for facilitating casual hookups if you're searching for a long-term relationship.

Users looking for more serious relationships tend to have paid subscriptions to dating apps such as Match.com, eHarmony, or the premium version of an app like Coffee Meets Bagel.

Finding the Right App For You

Join a Travel Club

Traveling with a travel club allows you to go on multiple trips with the same people so you can get to know each other in a safe environment.

A type of shared travel accommodation, hostels  by nature, promote social interaction. Imagine sharing a room with other travelers versus being alone in a hotel. It’s a great way to meet single, like-minded travelers when you’re on the move.

Stay at a Hostel

Volunteering for a cause we care deeply about opens up the opportunity to meet people with the same passion. Volunteer International HQ says, “couples that volunteer together stay together.”
