Getting around with such little means

    I want to be careful with stating this, but, 95 percent of the profiles I visit, the individuals have three different cities, and even countries they travel to.

    Anyone above 47'sh I assume retirement and their 401k.
    But the ones that struck me were the ages between 19 to 25. And their profiles give off info with no job Background.

    It's just interesting. Taking a line from the movie, titanic, when the young sketcher artist, jack, was asked by roses mother (i think) while they were eating at the captain's table: "so, by what means do you travel?"

    When jack told them, roses mom spat out: "you call this ruthless existence appealing?"

    The app on the front page of rj asks you three cities you live in. Why would they even ask that?

    The company I work for (self-employed) has three primary bases, and several part-time summer bases.
    The three places I have listed are two primary bases, and the summer base where I contract.

    Edit: I would list our third primary base - New Jersey - but I hardly ever go there because I'm a reptile, and can't handle temps below 80.

    Just a few possibilities..

    - Most of the youngsters are in college. So maybe their primary city is where they're attending school. And their second location is their home.

    - Some are in the military. Current duty station versus home town versus vacation spot, etc.

    - Some are models or flight attendants or some other job that require frequent travel.

    - The rest are probably trust fund babies or come from affluent families or have sugar daddies or are drug mules.

    - I don't really see this as an issue. If someone has the means to travel frequently and reside in multiple locations, then good for them. icon_cool.gif

    As 2nd or third travel locations, people tend to just put places they've recently been to or want to visit. It's not like they often go there.

    People travel a lot nowadays even with no money.

    When I was 19 I had 3 homes: Dallas (where my parents moved to) and then Tampa (hometown with all my friends and connections) and then Miami (where I had moved to for college).

    So it was possible to go to any of those cities at any given point, and I did...

    I mean hell, I flew from Dallas to Orlando for $79. That's minimum wage.
