Then, you throw in the living in different communities, the focus on your work, and the attention you must give to cultural norms...
Well, you end up with not a great recipe for a healthy and successful relationship.
Anyway, my point being don't bank on finding that special someone in Peace Corps. The potential partner pool is small and you often don't get to spend quality alone time (unless you think crowds of 5 or more constitute being alone).
Awkwardness immediately springs to life when you watch people battle stomach issues or have mini-breakdowns because they cannot figure out how to pronounce the "g" with the little hat (gggghhhrr).
Currently-serving volunteers, the newly-finished/just-getting-resettled and those from long ago are welcome!
You can choose when and how you want to upgrade your account – we provide many options. We can follow confusing directions and can take you anywhere. When you go back with your Peace Corps volunteer boyfriend or girlfriend to visit, you will become the center of attention. It’s part of the job and temper tantrums aside, we generally enjoy it. We have been all over places that can’t be found on a map. Any former volunteer is a local celebrity in their community. We may not be prepared to kids, but chances are, we have dealt with many that were not our own. I mean, we all hear the rumors, the gossip, the statistics - now, let me blab on about it for the next 2 to 5 minutes.When I first started telling my friends and family I was considering Peace Corps, I couldn't believe how many people insinuated that in 2 years I would return married.Upon further review, I think it's probably higher on the RPCV end as it makes sense RPCVs marry other RPCVs.
