I met serial online dating entrepreneur Brandon Wade last week. We were both in New York City meeting with major tv networks, magazines and radio shows to promote our respective businesses. Brandon’s latest business misstravel.com is a new dating site that promises to match “generous” travelers who hate to travel alone with “attractive” travelers who’d love the opportunity to travel the world for free. The name got my attention … anything related to travel does. (And no, I wasn’t in NYC to promote an online dating site, but rather my newly-published book, which you’ll read about in my next post.)
According to the press release for MissTravel.com, this site “is the first of its kind travel dating website that matches Generous travelers, who hate to travel alone, with Attractive people who love to travel but lack the funds to do so.”
If you’re a Generous traveler, you’re willing to pay for the Attractive traveler’s travel expenses, or gift frequent flyer miles for her or him to use. Hmmm, an interesting way to burn through your accumulated miles and points.
This site just went live a week ago and it’s already making big news and attracting many Generous and Attractive travelers. Though what I don’t see in my non-member viewing of the profiles is what would get my attention: DDMPPHG seeks U1KHDEEE* for communal sharing of elite privileges around the globe. I’d like to really see what the potential travel gifter has to offer … Show me only silver and the relationship is over before it’s begun! Alternatively, if I played the Generous traveler with my millions of miles and points, I’d want to match up with someone who at least knew the basic travel procedures. If they embarrassed me by pulling out a K-Mart plastic bag of full size liquids, I’d be ending the relationship right in front of TSA eyes. J
All fun aside, be careful with any online dating site. To its credit, misstravel.com has posted Travel Safety Tips that should be observed. I am not promoting this site, just letting you know that it exists. Since you’re a traveler too, this site’s name is likely to catch your attention as well … any maybe some of your miles.
