Have you ever seen posts on social media about women who won’t date a man who doesn’t have a passport? I hate those posts. Absolutely hate them. I find that many people who have this type of attitude are those who just recently started traveling or have been to 10 countries and think they are now travel experts who can look down on others.
Travel isn’t accessible to everyone, and even if it is, some don’t travel for a variety of reasons. Most men I know that are successful have had to sacrifice lots of their personal time in order to get their businesses off the ground. When a man is grinding and focused, he hardly has time to fly to Paris for a quick getaway and he usually isn’t thinking about where his next exotic vacation is.
He is working and trying to establish himself for the future, building his savings account, working on his credit and adding to his 401K. Many men have familial responsibilities that take up their time. While the thought of exploring another country may be in the back of his mind, it simply isn’t a priority. Is there something wrong with that?
I have encountered so many women that will immediately dismiss a man if he says he doesn’t have a passport or hasn’t traveled much.
I also know many women who are now married to men who before they met each other, they had no desire to travel. Or they wanted to travel but it just wasn’t on their immediate radar. Those same men are happily traveling around the world with their wives, and the ones who turn their nose up at a man with no passport are still single.
Maybe instead of immediately cutting a man off because he doesn’t have a passport, it would be prudent to find out what type of man he is, how he treats his mother and the strength of his integrity. As A.V. Perkins of avdoeswhat.com says, “Stamps don’t mean stable”. Indeed it doesn’t so please use a different barometer for judging a man, ok?
What about you? Would you date a man
who doesn’t have a passport?
