I've been on 15 vacations all alone. None ever went pear-shaped. The closest was when I got lost in a foreign city in middle of the night. A guy helped me find my way home. In someone else's life you can imagine the various exciting ways that might have ended. In my life, I thanked him and we parted ways.

Some people are adventure magnets. Some people aren't.

Most people would find being lost in a foreign city in the middle of the night a little bit pear shaped. That it ended well and unexcitingly for you doesn't mean it didn't have the potential to end differently.

Yeah, the "adventure magnet" thing only makes sense if you believe in predestination and I don't.

i wouldn't say it's "predestination" as much as it's coincidence, and some people just coincidentally have more weird shit happening to them than others.

I don't believe that, either. I think that if you actually look at these so called "magnets", you'll find there are many logical factors to explain why weird shit happens to them more than others.

I'm one of those people, and my ex actually called me a weirdo magnet.

I don't think it's predestination or coincidence - I think it's a personality type.

I agree with the point you're making, but I, like the anon above me, think it's actually personality type that determines whether someone is an "adventure magnet" or not. Literally every single one of the people I know who are extreme adventure magnets are basically just people who are extroverted, restless, commitment-phobes with an extreme case of FOMO.

I think they're nuts, and have zero desire to be like them. But they won't end up on their death bead lamenting the fact that they never lived, that's for sure.

I had some adventures happen to me, but in some cases, it was because I was being pretty fucking stupid at the time. Looking back, I'm really lucky that things didn't go bad, because they could have.

And btw, some of it is about identifying moments that can be TOLD AS adventures, even if at the time it didn't feel so crazy. Half of adventure is knowing how to tell it later...

Ha, I feel this way too. I've gone on a few long distance solo hikes and backpacking trips, and a few with friends. Nothing ever went wrong other than minor details. I always felt a little let down when I got from Point A to Point B with no Big Adventure in the middle. Movies and books and tv has lied to me!

I think I'm just very much the 'not an adventure magnet' type, which is sad but eh. I still have fun when I'm out there.
