Study abroad dating
This confusion will only last a few days, as students eventually learn to master the art of navigating public transit systems.Without the stressors of every day life, exchange programs make it easier for study abroad peeps to fall in love.It seems like a dream…you move to a mysterious new land, meet a handsome stranger and fall hopelessly, passionately in love.
I remember chatting with my host sister in her room one night when our conversation turned to the topic of guys, specifically one whom I had recently started dating.My friend Sarah and I had been too shy to date anyone during our time studying abroad in Paris, but we felt bold so we wrote out notes in terrible French (“I never do this, but here is my phone number”) and dared each other to give them to the first cute guys we saw.I dropped mine in the lap of a tall blond guy and ran away. He was Swiss-German, on vacation, and didn’t speak English; I had been in France studying abroad for less than two months. I Never Got The Joke: A few years later, I was teaching English in Paris.Naturally, when we made our initial moves, our heads were full of images of exotic foreign men and exciting adventures.But, as with many things about living abroad, dating abroad turned out to hold some surprises in store for us.
