Although many of my peers are starting to settle down, get engaged, and have children, I am single and have been for several years now. It would be nice to have some companionship, but my lifestyle as a perpetual traveler has made me undateable. Here’s why.

The main reason that getting into a relationship, or at least anything more substantial than a passing fling, has not been possible is that I am constantly traveling and never in one place long enough to establish roots.
Dating a girl who travels may seem exciting at first but when it all boils down to it, who really wants a girlfriend who is never there? How do you develop something with someone who is always absent? Long-distance relationships are notoriously difficult to maintain — even for established couples — so how can something that is still blossoming hope to succeed if one of the partners takes off?
