She has beaus in several area codes.
Starly Santos revealed on Tuesday that she has set a goal to date one man in each country until she finds Mr. Right has found.
According to the Florida native, her goal is to have 100 dates around the world and not stop even if she falls in love, the Sun reported Monday.
Santos, 27, told the outlet that she always had the itch to travel and live like a nomad — and after getting her college degree, she found a job that allowed her to do just that.
“I was traveling. I went on dates, of course,” Santos said.
But it wasn’t until one of her friends mentioned how her life was more interesting than anything on Netflix that the young woman started using social media to document her ultimate journey to love.
The Borderless Lover started her journey in February and has visited Chile, Argentina, Brazil, Uruguay, Colombia, Venezuela, India, Thailand, Indonesia, the Philippines, Singapore and the Americas – with the money she earns selling cryptocurrency while the dates themselves are paid for by the men.
Santos said she usually spends four or five days in one location and limits herself to one date to make sure she meets her goal — though she has said she doesn’t mind extending the trip if there’s a connection.
“I was curious where else in the world I could fall in love,” explains the 27-year-old. “Not only with the person, but also with the place. And I just wanted to do something unique when I was young.”
The Post has reached out to Santos for comment.
The savvy social media guru says she doesn’t just date any man.
Santos maintained that any person she is interested in must be from the country she is currently visiting, with a few notable exceptions.
“So for example, the guy in Colombia, he was born and raised there, but then he moved to the US from about 14 years old, and we went to college together,” explains Santos. “But he’s still Colombian, so we kind of have a heritage bond.”
“The idea is to find someone locally,” she added.
Another exception would be if she is in a country where the idea of dating is not common.
“If I’m in a Middle Eastern country where the locals don’t go out because it’s not common in Muslim cultures, I might see a foreigner who has lived there for a few years or something,” she continued.
Santos said any potential suitors should be okay with her filming the date and then posting it on her TikTok. If not, she refuses the date.
The jet set singleton revealed that communication is rarely a problem as most of the men she dates speak English or Spanish and all her dates know she’s only there for a few days.
“The mindset is that even if I meet someone I really like, I want to keep traveling,” Santos proclaimed. “We can keep in touch for at least a year. That’s kind of how I’d know if it’s the real deal. If they take me seriously, they can come and meet me in another country in that time frame.
According to the amorous explorer, her two experiences stand out.
One experience came when she spent two days island hopping in Venezuela and the other came in Bombay when the man she was dating at the time invited her on a boat.
“He invited me to his birthday party, like he was on a yacht with his friends,” Santos recalled. “And the next day we had a one-on-one.”
“We walked along the waterfront at sunset and then we did ‘Harry Potter’ trivia because we’re both super nerdy,” she continued, adding that Mr. Bombay has been her strongest bond to date.
Santos expects to get through more than a few frogs before landing on her prince charming, as her date in Indonesia demonstrated.
“He was just a little too creepy. He was a little too touchy,” the woman recalled adding that within hours of meeting, the man brought up marriage and showering at her hotel, leaving her feeling anxious.
“The next day, after our date, he kept video calling me. I didn’t pick up and he sent a voice note berating me for not answering him. He was just a little unhinged,” the Florida woman said. “I think all guys want to touch or kiss or whatever, because that’s just how guys are. This one was just over the top.”
Despite wanting to spread the love, Santos said she sees herself as “conservative”, revealing that the most physical thing she’s done with her dates is making out with Mr. Bombay.
“I am obviously open-minded. But my mindset is that I want to keep dating. I want to continue,” said the traveler.
Although she loves to travel, Santos claimed that she would like to settle down.
“I don’t want to do this for the next 10 years. Ultimately, I want to find someone and get married and stuff,” Santos said.
