I recently saw an article titled “Don’t date a girl who travels” posted by a friend of mine on Facebook. As a girl who has been to Africa and Central America in the past year alone, I instantly questioned whether this article was written about girls like me. Once I read the article, I realized that it was describing me entirely. Had this person read my diary?
While the author had an interesting perspective, I’d like to argue that it’s the wrong perspective. Everyone should want to date women like me. Speaking from experience, I know that we are awesome. Let me tell you why.
