9 Reasons Why Dating A Sailor Is Far More Than Just Romantic

Dating a sailor is an experience in itself. To some it may sound glamorous and fascinating, and to some difficult. But ever since I started dating one, there’s so much I have learnt about relationships and life in general. Though the pangs of separation is tough, and might sometimes take a toll on you, having a sailor in my life, in true sense,  has been heart-felt, romantic and full of passions & emotions.

Why Dating A Sailor Is Far More Than Just Romantic

Let’s read them one by one:

  • The old school communication

In this age of technology where people are in constant touch with each other, no matter where they are in the world, you learn to communicate with your lover once in a few days or weeks over satellite calls. Or you write mails to each other for which you get a reply the next day. Not being able to stay in touch is quite difficult, but when you get that call after days, when you get to hear his voice or read his mail, that spark of happiness is truly unexplainable.

Chase your travel dreams, experience food, culture and people. Explore, be adventurous, and try out new things. Click pictures, chill, splurge and make memories. Travelling is always so much fun, but travelling with your partner by your side always, there’s nothing quite like it!
