Going on a trip with your boyfriend is one of the most exciting experiences you can have. And also one of the most important decisions in your relationship. However, before you jump the gun, there are several factors to consider.
How Comfortable Are You With Him?
Make sure you share a comfort level with him. Don’t go on a trip together after only a couple dates. Spend some real, quality time together where you feel safe and comfortable in his presence. When you on a trip together, you will be alone with him in a car or hotel room. Make sure you two have bonded already.
Is It Too Early?
Going for a trip is a crucial decision. It’s a milestone in a relationship, especially the first trip you take together. It must be taken at the right time. If it’s done too prematurely, it may not do any good to your relationship. Will it cause you to realize you’re not as attracted or comfortable around him?
Are You Both on the Same Page?
Little things get in the way when you’re spending time together every second of the day. Little things will irritate you about him. And vice versa. That’s natural and to be expected. But the more important question to ask is whether you two are on the same page. How do you both deal with the irritations? How does he behave in less than ideal situations?
What are Your Expectations?
You would be surprised at what both your expectations are. When you are dating or in a relationship, you don’t live with each other. So you only see a glimpse or snapshot of each other’s personalities. But on a vacation together, you’ll be with each other 24 / 7. That’s no joke! I remember the first trip I took with my boyfriend. It was a fun trip, but there were also several disagreements. We saw different sides to each other we never did earlier.
It’s better to discuss all this beforehand. For example: Do you plan to have some alone time there? How much time are you planning to spend together on the trip? What activities are you planning?
