Online dating for nomads is something really valuable to the digital nomad communities around the world as its hard to find meaningful connections while most are constantly moving. Aline Dahmen came up with the idea to create a dating platform for the Nomad Soulmates community 2 years ago after she joined her first digital nomad conference. Today she is leading the worlds biggest community for single digital nomads, is creating single retreats and an app that connects them online. Say goodbye to Tinder and Hello to Nomad Soulmates.
How does it work?

More about the founder
Aline Dahmen left Germany after high school without a degree. First, she didn’t know what to do, but she knew she needed to follow her gut feeling. Her travels started with a Gap Year in New-Zealand finally finding out about the Digital Nomad movement which fascinated her. When she visited her first digital nomad conference, she got inspired to start the Nomad Soulmates community as she realized there were a lot of single & solo travelers present at that conference. It has been a struggle for her to find a community where people share love, work, and travel and with her assumption made at that conference, she found that it must be struggling for more digital nomads around the world. With Nomad Soulmates she started to organize speed dating events and grew into the vision of organizing adventurous events and retreats around the globe as well as creating a dating app for remote workers. Aline wanted her own project to work on. She is a strong community builder and she loves what she is doing. Aline found her nomadic love at a coffee shop in Bali where she has a home base with her partner Nalom of The Getaway Camp.
What do you want to teach the world?
Trust your gut feeling. You’re doing the right thing. You are the only person who knows what is best for you and what feels right. Go for the experience. If I didn’t listen to my gut feeling, Nomad Soulmates wouldn’t be here serving so many people. So yeah, always listen to your gut feeling!
How many Nomad Soulmate can we count?
I have seen 7 Nomad Soulmates relationships now. You can read our love stories here. Nomad Soulmates is mainly ment to be for finding a nomadic partner but it’s also a connecting platform to find friends, isn’t that how relationships starts in the first place?
What is coming up?
We will organize recurring events in the future. The Nomad Soulmates winter retreat will ideally return every 3 months. Of course, the event will be changed to the season we are in. Something special is coming up for Valentines day! There will be a romantic Nomad Soulmates retreat in Dahab Egypt and we will also turn back to this wonderful place every 3 months.
