It's natural to assume a Peace Corps Volunteer will go through some changes.
For a few volunteers that change can include coming back to America with a husband or wife!
Welcome to Corps Social – the dating and friendship website where Returned Peace Corps Volunteers, Ameri Corps Alums, Teach for America alumni, former UN Volunteers and other like-minded people come to chat, meet and date.
With Corps Social you can meet someone who shares your altruism and your sense of adventure, someone who can relate to your service and your openness to new experiences.
With only 10% of Peace Corps Volunteers being married when the enter service (stat [link]), the idea that the remaining 90% of us would pair off seemed a little unrealistic. I have talked with RPCVs and it seems like everybody has got a story of a couple that made it.
Upon further review, I think it's probably higher on the RPCV end as it makes sense RPCVs marry other RPCVs.
You’ll find your fellow members come in all ages, colors and religions.We lived in a developing country so we didn’t have access to many modern amenities.I had a pit latrine and no running water in my house. When I think back on the “lowest lows” and most challenging points of my service, they have little to do with the standards of living or working in a foreign culture and language.I taught classes of 50 students using nothing more than a chalkboard. The biggest challenge was dealing with sexual harassment on a daily basis and having to give up certain liberties and freedoms since, in the conservative highlands of Madagascar, had to to meet the expectations my host culture had for women.Male volunteers, on the other hand, didn’t give up as much in this sense.
