Finding someone to spend the rest of your life with is not easy, especially when it seems like you have gone on a date with almost everyone in your area. Bravo TV’s ‘Love Without Borders’ helps several such young men and women in a way never seen before. Each season, the participants are taken to a country outside the US and introduced to a potential love match. As couples journey from strangers to lovers, they must overcome the difficulties that life throws their way.
Season 1 of the reality dating show introduced viewers to several interesting individuals, including Naeem Thompson. He came on the show after realizing how precious and precarious life can be. Eager to find love and contentment, Naaem put his hopes in the showrunners after seemingly exhausting his chance within his home city.

Motivated by his experience in the field of social work, Naeem decided to pursue his Master’s degree in Social Work from the University of Maryland in Baltimore, Maryland. Thanks to his dedication, he could get the necessary qualification and pursue his passion. Besides, in 2021, Naeem had to battle a severe case of Covid-19 but was, fortunately, able to make a full recovery. The experience was transformative for him and gave him a new outlook on life.

In January 2012, he took up the role of Youth Counselor at The National Center for Children and Families in Washington D.C. Metro Area, adapting to social work enthusiastically.

Naeem Thompson’s Girlfriend
Through season 1 of ‘Love Without Borders,’ Naeem hoped to find his perfect match. The reality TV star confessed that while fighting against Covid, he apparently got a message from God asking him to change his ways with women, find a wife and settle down. After his recovery, Naeem decided to ditch his previous attitude towards the opposite sex and meet his soulmate.
On the show, Naeem shared that he thinks of himself as a kid at heart and is looking forward to having his own children. Hence, he was introduced to Chandra as his potential partner, and the two started to explore their relationship. She and Naeem did have their fair share of rough patches, including when he was upset about her dancing with her ex-boyfriend in a club. Nevertheless, we wish them the best and hope that the two find what they are looking for.
