I remember hanging out with Aline (Founder of Nomad Soulmates) at Beta Haus last year with a few of the girls saying dating as a digital nomad is HARD. After leaving the coworking space I overheard some dudes saying “I slept with one in Thailand, another in Hungary…” I was really put off.
I’ve been a digital nomad and in the space for 8 years.
I was always surrounded by men, but in a way I became like one of them. Friend zone and colleagues and business partners. It was not until I did a lot of inner work, studied the polarities of masculine and feminine ways of being, that I shifted.
You see, I mastered being alone. I honestly preferred being alone. I had very high standards for myself and eventually for my partner. However, I had to soften in my feminine. Allow men the possibility of trust and to see the best in them. Positive encouragement and being a safe space where he could just be real with me.
A lot of nomads feel lonely – make peace with yourself and love yourself first then when you get very clear on who you want to attract, you will.
Relationships are no longer about safety, raising children etc. They are about spiritual, mental, and personal growth with another living breathing human being. It’s not going to be great all the the time, yeah it might be easier to hook up, but what happens is: we get happy with fast food when sometimes you just want to sit with a luxury 5-course meal and savor every bite.
Nothing wrong with either… but if you want a soulmate or a life partner you’re going to have to go deeper in conversation and way of being than you ever had before.
