Some say you should never travel at the beginning of a relationship, because that could be what makes or breaks it in the end. But wouldn’t you rather know up front if she is high maintenance or if he doesn’t play well with others? Why not start your relationship with a little travel, and save yourself the heartache in the long run?
Here are 5 Ways travel can help you determine if she’s the one:
Want to know if she’s high maintenance? Just check her suitcase. If you’re off for a weekend getaway and she has two checked bags and a carry on stuffed to the seams, chances are going to have your hands full. If you don’t have the patience or the finesse to date someone who is needy, then she’s probably not the one for you.
Whether your rental car broke down, or you’ve lost your way, the fastest way to determine if she can be your partner in crime, or if she will always be the damsel in distress is when things don’t go according to plan. Figuring out how well you two work together to solve a problem can help you determine if you would be a good fit in the long run.
If you love the great outdoors, and her idea of vacation is a week in the spa, you probably aren’t going to spend much time together, much less have anything to talk about. Getting to know each other during a hike to an excluded waterfall may sound like a great idea to some, but not if she has zero interest in stepping foot out of the hotel. If she doesn’t share your interests on vacation, you probably aren’t going to have anything in common back home either.
When traveling, you have a lot of opportunity for decision making and compromising. Does she give as good as she takes, or are you the only one making suggestions during the trip? If you don’t like planning every second of your trip by yourself, than you probably won’t want to plan every second of your life together either.
Chances are, if you are here, travel is an important part of your life and something you are going to want to share with your life partner. If she can’t keep up with you, or you can’t get along on your trip, she probably won’t be able to do so on the next one. Isn’t it better to find that out now, before you get in too deep? Friendship is the foundation of every good relationship.
Ladies, stay tuned to find out why traveling with him first, could help save you some heartache.
