What it’s like to Date Around the World

It always cracks me up how eager people are to hear about my dating life, especially since I started traveling internationally.  I've played coy and kept the juicy stories for "Girls Night" with close friends, but with so many of you asking, let me share a little bit with you- you know, woman to reader.
