Don't overthink things. If you want your life to be based on being single, experiencing travel, transient living, etc, then do it. Know yourself and act accordingly.

Let the future happen when you are ready. If, down the road, you want a more settled relationship, or family, or whatever, then pursue it at that time.

Part of finding the right relationship with someone (for those who are looking) is not finding someone to "settle down" with into a stereotypical lifestyle. It is about finding a partner who has the same goals, plans, direction, and timeframes for achieving things for their life as you do. Don't let the concept of a relationship be so narrow minded to assume it has to mean one certain thing (such as marriage, house in burbs, 9-5 job, kids, etc). The perfect women for you will compliment you, and be a component in you thriving in what you want in your life, not making you change what you want, or live a lifestyle you do not want to live.
Good answer. When you find the right partner your goals may change anyways. Just go with it.

Finding a woman like that, is very possible. Chances are she wont come knock on your door announcing the thread title, however. Date around a bit and be open about what youre looking for. Chances are, just like anyone else, you will have to date few women, before you find someone you really click with.

Talk to these ladies Trimac. Maybe, these are the kinds of women that fit what you are looking for...or at least could put you in the right direction.

I daydream about romances but, the idea of 'growing old' with someone has actually never appealed to me. Heck, maybe it's weird of me, but the idea of a romance with an expiry date actually sort of appeals to me more in a way. Of course if I found the one I wouldn't want it to last.

One thing, though, if I can I hope the spend the next 5 years at least spending as much time as I can travelling or living around the world. Whether that is through my job, or I find ways to work/fund my travels. I want to do some volunteering, some soul-searching, some exploring. No idea about percentages, but I'm wondering how hard it would be find someone who would be open to dating someone like me? Either sharing those experiences or being away for long periods of time? That's why I'm thinking I could be practically single for quite a few years to come.
It seems odd to me that your parents think you need to settle down, when you haven't even had a relationship yet. IMO, you need to get out and meet women and have some experiences in the dating world before worrying about finding a partner who wants to travel.

It is very hard for a man like me period looking for a good woman to be with, let alone looking for a woman that doesn't want to settle down to travel. If given a choice, i rather be with a woman that can accept me for who i am since finding love nowadays is very extremely difficult which the real good old fashioned women are not around anymore.
