postheadericon Dating Sites Girls Mate Travel Dating My Business Profile Of The Week

dating site for travelers, Girlsmate.com. He suggests to give them a try.

“> My profile of the week this week is a unique one for certain. Being on the Internet for nearly 17 years, I shouldn’t be surprised at the wide variety of people with a myriad of professions from so many different places. When I ran into Alexsey from the Ukraine, Russia, to be honest, I was not sure what to expect. But one of my cartoon illustrators is also from the Ukraine and here in the west, I’ve discovered we have much more in common than differences (we both laugh at and -get- the same type of humor, etc). My illustrator Sergey is interested in nature and wildlife photography just like my wife Lee. Which brings me to Alexsey and her dating site for travelers GirlsMate.com. Immediately you know it is an International site, not just in the Ukraine in that it is billed as the -Your facebook for future friends-. She launched GirlsMate.com with several former alumni friends from the University in Dontsk (a major city and college in the Ukraine. Immediately on page one of the site is a wide variety of members, both male and female, and when one signs up, they have free access to the many more singles who enjoy traveling and meeting friends. If you are a traveler, and travel is a very important part of your life, this type of site will help steer you in the right direction in that you will not be bothered by couch potatoes or people who are afraid of planes and/or cruiseships. These members travel via all sorts of transportation from cars to planes to trains to boats. If I were single, this is the type site I would have used, as travel was a major part of my life. I even ended up settling (and married) in a tourist town that is small but lures 6 million people annually. I am sure it is because it reminded me so much of my favorite travel spot in Hawaii, the island of Kauai. —————————————————————————————————————————————————————————– Rick London is the founder of Google’s #1 offbeat cartoons LTCartoons.com and is a freelance writer and author.

Accept it

It doesnt matter if youre 14 or 40, your parents are always going to picture you as a small child, and therefore, you may find that theyll inadvertently treat you like one.
