Back in 1989,I met a police officer from New Jersey whilst holidaying at WDW.We spent a great day together,and corresponded for the next 6 years.
Despite travelling to the US fairly often,I never made it to NJ,and sadly we lost touch a few years back.Still think about him sometimes as he was a great friend & full of interesting stories.

Renee, I would advise you that this is the only way to go. The internet with its international dating websites is ideally suited for romantic travel. I have been to 7 countries in the last 2 years and, at each airport, I am met by a nice lady who is native to the particular city.

She takes me under her wing and serves as excellent tourguide. This sure beats any other way to travel that I have experienced. Most of these meetings do turn sexual, but it doesn't always have to. None have turned into anything permanent which is fine with me.

The only thing is the person should be honest with the other parties. I never mention the words love or marriage in any of the prior correspondence, and I fully explain that I am just there for a vacation and good time.

A friend of mine was visiting the ruins of Monte Alban walking up the south pyramid toward the end of the day, hoping to find a place to hide to stay on the grounds after hours. On the way up the pyramid he was smitten by a figure all dressed in white coming down the steps, but did not say anything. He did not succeed in staying the night and kept on thinking that he had missed his opportunity with the lady, to the point that he wrote to his father that he met and lost the love of his life. A couple of days later he was sitting at a cafe on the zocalo in Oaxaca when he saw her walk by. He jumped up and tried to strike a cponversation, she was suspicious of him. He managed to get her to sit down at the cafe and have a coffee. He spoke English and too little Spanish to keep up an interesting conversation. She was a tourist from Latin America. But somehow they discovered that they had French as a common language. The rest is history.

Travel is one of the best ways to meet a partner, life time or not. Travel has a way of loosening us up. You will talk to strangers in a manner that you never would in your home city. I don't know the reason, but those of you who have done any traveling know this to be true.

I had a splended "living abroad" boyfriend whilst living in Ireland at the age of 21.. oh he was really cute.. green eyes, white skin and black hair.. but his mother didn't approve..(my being a godless heathen, and from Los Angeles to boot) he did come to L.A to visit me several years later,but I was dating someone else, (which I warned him of, in advance) poor guy, I think he had the trip from hell. He ended up leaving early and spending the rest of his holiday in NYC... I suppose I should have stayed with the Irish guy, the local boy ended up being the biggest jerk...lol.they don't say hindsight is 20/20 for nothing..

I think MANY AMERICANS have in Amsterdam. That is why there is all this discussion about this place on this board.

Renee, Don't know if she was a legitimate soulmate, but I sat next to a beautiful as well as smart snow bunny on a flight returning from the swiss alps. I lost my heart.

Snowbunny, if you're out there, drop me a line (but don't tell my wife)

Met my husband at a Club Med in June 2000. He was the plumber there and my son and I were guests. We were married by Oct. 2000 (yep 4 months later). It's been wonderful - he is my soulmate, and my 11 yr old son loves him too.

This question hits the spot, deep down.
2 years ago I went to Paris while my boyfriend was busy working at home. We'd been together almost 9 years at that time and it seemed we were meant to be together forever.
That weekend in Paris happened to be the European Basketball finals, Greece vs. Israel. Somehow, my plans on the night of the final playoff game got cancelled and I found myself wandering around Paris, taking the Metro to wherever. The train I got on was filled with singing, cheering, exhuberant Israelis because they had just won the European Finals!!! Being Jewish myself, I felt overwhelmed, at home and amazed at how fate had put me here at the perfect moment. We all descended upon L'arc de Triumph and celebrated in the streets of Champs Elysee for hours!!
Totally satisfied with my experience, I entered a nearby restaurant/bar for a glass of wine, but met the man/boy who (eventually) changed my life without knowing it. I spent 2 absolutely AMAZING nights with him. You know, the kind where, when you kiss, the whole world behind you disappears, and your whole body is tingling and everything is perfect and you just can't believe this is happening. (please, no judgements passed here) I had NEVER felt that way before, in all my 36 years. Where did he come from? Why? WHY! Because eventually I realized that my relationship at home was not what it 'could' be. And should be. 6 months later, with nothing but a few friendly sincere emails monthly from this amazing Israeli air force pilot, I ended my 9 year relationship with my boyfriend and have vowed to wait until I meet the "one" who makes me feel the way that he did. In the meantime, we still correspond via email and I plan on visiting him and his girlfriend sometime this year in Israel, war permitting. I will never ever ever forget him, the coincidences that lead to our meeting, the way I felt with him, and how those 2 nights impacted my life.
