Surprised? Millennial Men Believe They Can Find Love On Vacation

Find Love On Vacation

TopDeck Travel and YouGov just released some surprising news about single millennial men from a survey they recently curated. According to it, more and more men believe they can find long-lasting love on vacation. And one in 11 post-graduate millennials did find love while visiting another country.

While surveying 1,158 millennial men, it was found that one out of eight men said they hope to meet the love of their life when they travel. Whereas, only one out of 20 women had similar expectations, reports Glamour.

In a press release, Sarah Clark, who serves as the Global Brand Director for TopDeck Travel said, “From social media to online dating, millennials are stepping away from impersonal messaging apps to find love and are instead looking to connect with people in an authentic, unique way.” Her statement correlates with the survey findings that also revealed 40 percent of female millennials and 32 percent of males would rather save for vacations than use the money for dates.

Because of this, more individuals find themselves willing to connect with people in other cities or countries. And with technology constantly advancing to make communication more seamless (shout out to Skype, Facetime, and WhatsApp), Glamour says that long-distance relationships are becoming much more common and come off as more sustainable these days when compared to the past.

Although some may believe the survey’s findings are a fluke, they are, however, representative of the world we currently live in. With more people setting #TravelGoals, it’s not surprising that they connect (perhaps, in a better way) with people when they are relaxed and open, and feel more confident in a new environment they’re hoping to explore. Even better, the survey debunks the myth that millennials are only focused on preserving hookup culture.

Found love during a trip? We want to hear how you’re making it last.

    Wow this article was so interesting especially because I’ve been talking so much about a eat pray love journey lately.

  • Eric

    Of course I’d rather spend my money on a vacation than a date because I’m guaranteed to have a good time and my money won’t be wasted.

  • Dania Coleras

    since when are men looking for love? especially on vacation

    • guest

      please! they go to these countries like Dominican republic and brazil all the time looking for an exotic wife to bring back to the states.

      • Dania Coleras

        yeah anything other than black

        • Not about that life

          they are black whether you think so or not and it’s not always about finding an “exotic looking woman. it’s more about the mentality of the women in those countries that all men find appealing.

          • Dania Coleras

            well i guess the ones that can’t afford to travel to a diff country to find wife in another country because us american women suck just get stuck with us and regret it explains a lot being independent because men wanted to control and not necessarily take care of us in the first place

      I know men who’ve gone on “vacation” to Africa, Caribbean, Europe, and all over in hopes of finding a good woman. Women overseas have a different mentality that is appealing to American men.

        Definitely. My wife is carribbean, and other looking similar to American black women, she is completely different from them in mentality.
