One year ago, Chelsea Snow joined Miss Travel, an online dating site for travel lovers. Since then, she's gone on seven international dates—all expenses paid.

"I've always wanted to travel, but money has been an issue. These guys pay for me to share incredible experiences with them, and my life couldn't be any better,” Snow told a UK newspaper recently. "I joined Miss Travel as I've always had a passion for exploring and going to new places, and now I hope to meet the man of my dreams at the same time.”

The 20-year-old went on her first jet-setting date just a month into joining the site, when a male suitor flew her from her home in Orlando to London. She has since been on 29 other dates and visited Costa Rica, Paris, New Zealand, Norway, and a number of U.S. states.

"I was a bit skeptical at first, but I soon connected with a few guys," Snow added. "When one proposed a trip to London, I couldn't wait to pack my bags.”

The Miss Travel website makes it clear that “escorts are not allowed” and Snow says there’s no pressure to be romantic. "Most of the men, who are in their 20s and 30s, are tired of traveling alone and just want someone to keep them company and I'm more than happy to do that,” she noted. "There's no pressure there sexually, either. I like to get to know each person individually first and then just go with what feels right.”
