The desired outcome has been to find a soulmate you can share your life with, or a hot date – or whatever it is you’re looking for.

But we’ve also found that the basics in building any kind of relationship are not that different. It can be very intense when people experience great moments together with someone they’ve met on the road.

But the key to finding the right site (or sites) for you depends on what type of relationship you’re in search of.

If you’re just dipping your toes back into the dating pool, free sites can be a great place to start.

The mystery and unknown leaves a taste of excitement behind.

It makes it easier to connect with the person, and easier to fall for them too.

To help answer that question, keep the following in mind: Free sites are geared toward casual daters, while paid sites tend to be for people looking for a serious relationship.

Of course, it’s not always that simple, and there are exceptions.

Now it’s February 15th and you're still a single nomad and sick of the loneliness. Join Aline Dahmen., and her growing group of Nomad Soulmates, as she digs through the dating maze to find out what really makes travel dating different to traditional dating.
