Dating While Traveling: How To Have Fun And Stay Safe

February 14, 2022

Traveling offers a chance to take a break from the monotony of day-to-day life and the drudgery of work and household chores. In addition, it is an excellent chance to meet new people, explore another side of life and have lots of fun.

It is not a secret that meeting strangers for an anonymous chat far from your hometown and exploring different unfamiliar places can be thrilling and ignite the romantic spark in you. You also enjoy being shown new places to have fun, enjoy the best food and create lasting memories.

However, when travelling, hook-ups pose some risks, and you have to take care, trust your sixth sense, and choose who you meet wisely. You don’t want to be drugged, robbed, or even hurt or worse.

Below are some tips to help you have fun and be safe as you date while traveling:

Research your date before your meet

Most likely, you will find a date online when traveling and then arrange to meet them. You could have used various dating apps or websites and arranged a hook-up. It would be prudent to find as much information about them before the meeting. You should request their photo and look for their full name. It is also a good idea to ask what they do for a living, their likes and so on. As much as possible, avoid meeting anyone you cannot check out.

Leverage dating apps and websites for your safety

While you can decide to find a date in social places as you travel, you can save yourself a lot of hassle by using dating apps and websites. You can even use escort directories or escort agency sites to find beautiful and sexy women or handsome men to have adult fun with and accompany you to places as you travel. For example, you can browse through this top list of Melbourne escorts to find a great date. The beauty of using trusted escort sites is that they have vetted the service providers, so your safety is assured.

Watch your food and drinks

You do not want to take any chances with the food and drinks you consume with your unknown date. To avoid hunger pangs, you can have a light meal and a glass of wine before hooking up with them. However, you should avoid getting drunk before the first meeting as this can significantly impair your judgement and lead you into an unnecessary and precarious situation. You should closely monitor your drinks during your time together and not leave them unattended when you go to the toilet. As scary as it may sound, spiking still happens.

Keep someone in the know of your whereabouts

When on solo trips, it is a good idea to let a person like a friend or family member know your whereabouts. Luckily, you can rely on various chat apps to send such people your location details anytime you visit a new place. This way, the people can know where to start looking for you should anything happen. If you are traveling in a group or you are living in a shared facility, let your travel mates or hostel mates know where you have left for as you go out all the time.


In addition to the above things to help you keep safe as you date while traveling, another crucial thing is to learn to trust your instinct. Whenever your gut feeling warns you about a person or a place, you better trust it. Better safe than sorry.
