Taking your first vacation with your partner can be an exciting undertaking. The first time I ever took a big vacation with a guy I was dating, I honestly thought he was going to propose; instead, we just got in a huge stupid fight and it ruined the whole getaway!
So, here are some questions that you should ask yourself before jumping on that plane:
- What are my expectations? The last thing you want is to have your getaway ruined when your “partner” reveals that they are still dating around.
- Am I prepared to spend a week connected at the hip with this person? It’s important to make sure your relationship is ready for that amount of exposure.
- What’s the budget? You definitely need to have a conversation about how much both of you are comfortable spending on a trip.
- How do I want to spend my time? You shouldn’t feel bad about sharing your passions with your bae, but it’s also important to be mindful of the fact that they might not want to spend every day doing exactly what you want to do.
