I’m the type of person that gets bored easily. I’ll admit, I got bored real quick with online dating. It was all the same. So many apps were simply clicking yes if someone was good looking and no if they weren’t. After that, I would wait around for a message. No matter what online dating app I was on, it seemed like I always discovered the same people. I was so sick of meeting guys that lived within a 10 mile radius of me! Of course, it seemed like this would be the most practical when it comes to online dating. Some people love that. I did not. I got bored so easily! All these guys were the same. There was one app I found that did not bore me.
The day I discovered Skout via twitter, I literally felt like the doors of adventure were opening up for me. Skout isn’t like any of the other apps out there. I don’t have to talk to anyone that lives close by. I can branch out and truly explore different cultures and different lifestyles. I can make friends all across the globe. I can do this by choosing the Skout travel option. I can pick places like London, Japan, New York, and anywhere in between! It’s like I’m traveling without ever having to leave my own home. I can learn all about a person that I never would have otherwise. It’s absolutely exhilarating. Skout travel is actually very practical as well. If I ever plan on physically traveling to somewhere I haven’t been before then this is the app for me. I can start talking to people before I get to my destination! That way, I will have a friend to rely on once I’m there. I will already feel comfortable enough with someone and they can show me the sights and sounds of a new city, state, or even country!
If I’m feeling extra adventurous, I can simply shake my phone and be connected to a user somewhere in the world. It’s always fun and exciting to see who I will be connected with. I love making new friends and this is a pressure free way to do so! Of course, If I want to do something a bit more local then I always have the option of choosing to talk to people in my state.
Overall, it’s a fun little app! So far, all the people that I’ve talked too have been nice. I feel safe with Skout. I’ve had many great conversations that would have not been possible without Skout.
