6 Signs You And Your Partner Should Go On Your First Trip Together This Year
4 de junio de 2018Ariel Rodriguez
In many ways (emotional, physical, and even economic), this is closest thing to moving in together.
You've been together for a while now.
You should go on a trip with your partner when the two of you have already known each other long enough to feel comfortable together for an extended period of time. This trip should also strengthen the relationship. It wouldn't be a good idea to go on a trip when you have barely started dating or know very little about each other. What if you find out you and your partner are not compatible during the trip? Make sure you don’t make this decision impulsively and do plan it in advance.
You haven't been able to spend that much time together recently.
You can actually take time off.
And you have enough cash.
You're both able to handle crises.
Wherever you go, with or without a partner, something is bound to go wrong. For example, travelers miss flights, get food allergies, and can even loss important belongings like a passport or a credit card. While a moment like this would be ideal to see how your partner reacts, it can also end in something bad. You should at least know how your partner behaves under stressful situations before going on a trip with them.
You want to travel together.
It sounds like a no-brainer, but it might be more complicated than you think. There's the possibility that they were really excited about the trip when you first started planning it, but something made them change their mind, and now they don't want to go anymore, but they still go because they don't want to upset you. If this happens, they won't really have fun and they will always be uncomfortable and ready to leave. A trip together should be romantic, exciting, and lots of fun, but if one of you doesn’t feel like going, it would be best to skip it this time and wait for the right time.
Traveling together is a big step: it’s the closest thing to moving in together. You will have to make many decisions as a team and all the new dynamics will teach you a lot about your partner, even things you thought you knew about them. Of course, I would say listen to your gut: if you are unsure about this trip or don’t feel ready, then, don’t force it. Instead, tell your partner about your concerns and plan a trip for another time.
