Bit of background on myself, I'm 26 and been backpacking in Oceania since October.
For anyone who isn't doing too well romantically, pulling down girls while travelling is like shooting fish in a barrel made of fish. Despite what some people might say to you, backpacking and sex have always gone hand in hand
Anyway, I arrived in a new town and made myself at home in the hostel dorm room. There I met two Scandinavian girls, one single, and one in a relationship, both reasonably attractive. Anyway, our backpackers has free pool so we agree to play a few games.
I invite a dude over who's eating by himself and him and the single girl hit it off immediately. We play a few games and have a few beers, now I'm not really a big drinker so I have a few and tell them I'm retiring to the room. They're all dressed up and ready to hit the bars and try to convince me to come out but I'm just on a write in my journal and listen to electronic vibe (big mood).
Anyway, single girl wakes me up at 3am when she comes in with her loud ass and we chat for a little while, tells me the girl on a relationship stayed out with some random backpacker from the bar. Now bear in mind this girl has been talking about her boyfriend for the last few days, has a picture of them together as her phone background, but he isn't here, he's back home doing God knows what while his girl runs around abroad for two months getting her face sprayed at every opportunity.
She comes back 9am the next day before checkout looking embarrassed as fuck and they start blabbering away to each other in their mother tongue about how she can't believe she did that
Tale as old as time really. Here's some advice for you guys from someone who travels a lot.
If you're in a relationship and your girl wants to travel for an extended period without you, let her go but let her know she's now single
I'm not saying all girls in LTRs will cheat, but it's a shitty environment for a relationship which makes them easy prey for A&F looking backpackers who they'll feel connected to because they're sharing similar experiences
Your girl's friends are not your friends, their loyalty lies with her and they will watch her suck a hundred veiny dicks without any kind of heads up.
4 and most important. You're the hero in your own story, don't be the person waiting at home for anybody ever. This guys girlfriend is out hitchhiking around Oceania, having the time of her life and getting consequence free lays when she wants it, what the fuck is her boyfriend doing except missing her , I have a tonne of these stories if people are interested, some involving me some not including banging a geologist in an open relationship while her boyfriend was in the Antarctic, and a French girl who's cheeks I blew out in the hostel showers after she told me her boyfriend had given her a "free one", and a girl who fell asleep on a guy who wasn't her boyfriend in a lounge where I was working and everyone started taking photos
