Looking for friendship active partner dating serious relationship
When I quit my job in the Middle East to start my backpacking journey, aside from the other reasons and lies I was telling myself and people around me about why I wanted to leave my corporate life, I actually left because I just wanted to have more time to understand myself, to love me and just to be with myself!
Jon even leaves the Do Not Disturb sign on the hotel room door because, ‘it feels weird having someone come and clean up after me! Not all White people are rich; this is a hangover of the American occupation.If you’re traveling on your own, you’ll meet a lot of travelers – mostly European, and being a backpacker you shouldn’t expect another backpacker to take you to an expensive restaurant – oh and he’s British btw.After few months of just keeping in touch on facebook while I continued my solo backpacking, Jon and I decided to be officially together, and we’re now together for almost two years!If I was looking for a sugar daddy, I must have been blinded by that magic white skin again!When we decided to pursue our around-the-world backpacking journey together, we both worked hard to build our initial funds! No matter what success we experience, people might still think it’s because the Magic white man got us here.If everyone was rich, who would clean the streets, or do menial tasks that no one else wants to do?
Ahh western-style economics, making sure we always have someone poor enough to sweep the streets!
Aha, so being warm and hospitable and loving towards your partner means that you’re a slave? I wonder if these people ever stop to consider that these feelings and actions are returned by the man.
British and most other westerners are raised to be very independent.
Yes, there are perhaps some Filipinas who have this reason but not in most cases!
I was already travelling on my own long before I met Jonathan (well, I’ve met Jonathan while travelling! Jonathan and I are both long-term travellers and us living and settling down in the UK couldn’t be further from our minds.
UPDATE: We’re engaged and getting married next year!
