Is she/he a problem solver or a whiner?
Vacations rarely go perfectly according to plan, and not everyone can handle a last minute itinerary change. You will find out very quickly if he or she complains often or is dependent on your actions.
Do you share the same interests?
If you’re an outdoorsman and she is a valley girl, you probably won’t have a very good vacation, much less a good life together.
How does he/she treats others?
If quality of character in a potential partner is important, be observant to how he or she treats others when traveling together. The way a person interacts with strangers, such as a server, truly defines their character. If he or she doesn’t tip well, judges immediately, etc., then their demeanor in front in your presence is a facade.
Organized or messy
If you are spending a few days together in confined quarters, it will quickly become apparent who is the “clean” one and who is the “messy” one. If her stuff is all over the bathroom sink and floor, this is a huge red flag.
High maintenance or low maintenance?
Some girls can be ready to go in minutes, but other girls will keep you waiting for hours. Even some men have trouble completely unplugging or living with modern luxuries, and traveling together can help uncover these personality quirks.
Sleeping habits. Does she/he snore, like to sleep in late or get up early?
If you haven’t slept together yet, you may not know if your potential partner likes to stay up all night and sleep in until noon, or even if they snore. A night owl and an early riser are not always the best match, after all.
Selfish or selfless?
Situations arise during a vacation where one can truly shine. A member recently told me that the moment she fell in love on her MissTravel trip to the Bahamas, was when her date had removed his shirt to protect her head from the rain. Later, he picked her up and carried her inside after she had slipped in her flip flops. Coincidentally, that couple is engaged and expecting a child later this year.
