Traveling the world could get you more dates

Traveling the world could get you more dates.

It has been revealed that people who jet away on holiday have better relationships and are "more datable" overall. The study by Contiki also found that 63 percent of people think they were able to solve a problem better because of their travel experiences, which bodes well for relationships.

Psychologist and relationship expert Antonia Hall said: "Travel requires adaptability skills, because travel comes with obstacles, even with the best-laid plans. When traveling solo, one learns to trust their own instincts. Travels is an incredible way to learn about one's self, how you deal with stress, and what you need to do to take care of yourself ...

"In partnered travel you get to put your adaptability skills to work and see if your partner can do the same. One can learn a lot about a person while traveling, including where you match up, how you can support one another and where outside challenges lead to issues between you two. Once you've been through flight delays, unexpected storms, and other challenges, it helps bond you with your partner and make everyday obstacles easier to get through together."

And 76 percent of travelers feel they are more confident because of the experiences they have had abroad.

Hall added to Bravo TV's Jet Set: "Travel allows you to experience new cultures [and] ways of life, and have adventures outside your comfort zone. This is a great way to get to know oneself, and to get to know your partner in ways that foster bonding."
