A Portrait of a Nomad in Quarantine
This week, in our last ever episode, we discuss how the pandemic has impacted the future of relationships and our predictions for what dating as a nomad will look like once borders start opening. We’ve shared so many embarrassing stories and spoken with so many wonderful, open and insightful people over these two seasons. It’s been a pleasure sharing their stories here, but we feel like we’ve done what we set out to do - create a little time capsule of nomad pandemic dating - and we’re going to quit while we’re ahead! Thank you so much for coming along with us on this journey. Big hugs! Our reading recommendations this week are: Elly's: Promising Young Women by Caroline O’Donoghue.

Roam-eo and Juliet Part 2
Dating A Broad is a remote dating podcast. Episode four, which is about finding love in unexpected places, got a little bit long so we split it into two parts. In part one, we talked to Lauren and Michael who met in December and decided to make their relationship official on a socially distant date during lockdown. Lauren was scared her Mum wouldn’t approve of their ‘Romeo & Juliet’ style romance, so she had to sneak out to see him, often only for a few hours at a time. In part two, Lauren and Michael’s questions are answered by nomadic coach Angie, who found her perfect person while travelling through Portugal alone. She still travels by herself a lot but they manage to keep the spark alive from afar, and when they reunite. Plus, our latest virtual dating updates and crazy stories from our combined 16 years of dating on the road! Music by Ly Trang. Find her work at lytrang.bandcamp.com. You can find the awesome food business Lauren recently created at https://www.instagram.com/oatsu_/. Angie’s coaching website is at https://www.untamingthewild.com/.

The Date Escape
Dating A Broad is a remote dating podcast. Episode three is about the single ladies who have decided to use lockdown as an opportunity to take a break from dating, and their nomad counterparts who explore the joys of travelling the world alone. We meet Jess, a British comedian, who has decided to focus on her comedy during quarantine because she doesn’t think virtual dating in these circumstances is a foundation for a healthy relationship. We also catch up with our friend writer and digital nomad Maria who’s been travelling the world with her laptop for the last 7 years and is currently locked down in Argentina. She’s been dating on and off during her time as a nomad but has decided to use lockdown to take a complete break from men, which she says has cleared sooo much mental space.

In episode one, we discuss the pros and cons of being single in quarantine, why quarantine dating isn’t so dissimilar from dating as a digital nomad and why being in a relationship doesn’t necessarily make you happy. Plus, our latest virtual dating updates and crazy stories from our eight years of dating on the road! Music by Ly Trang. Find her work at lytrang.bandcamp.com. We mentioned a few bits of research in this episode: Here, you can read about how single people tend to focus on their other relationships – friends, family and community – more than married people. https://www.psychologytoday.com/ca/blog/living-single/201810/are-single-people-happy-because-they-are-free This one talks about how unmarried people with active social lives are happier than the average married person. https://greatergood.berkeley.edu/article/item/one_key_to_being_happy_when_youre_single This article talks about ‘matrimania’ - https://www.vice.com/en_ca/article/9kpz98/why-new-research-says-its-ok-to-stay-single-and-die-alone Finally, it’s the stigma surrounding being single, rather than how you actually feel about being single, that leads some single women to feel less happy. https://www.theguardian.com/lifeandstyle/2019/may/25/women-happier-without-children-or-a-spouse-happiness-expert Did you know Emma Watson identifies as nomad?
