7 Tips For Enjoying Your First Vacation Together


7 Tips For Enjoing Your First Vacation Together [EXPERT]
Here are seven tips to make your first romantic getaway a great experience.

4. Spend some time apart. To make sure you each get your needs met, you may need to strike out on your own for a short time. Go to the spa while he goes for a run; then meet at the pool later. If you want to shop and he wants to play golf, it's okay to do your own thing. Giving each other space on vacation makes time together more special. This is a great way to be sure you don't overwhelm each other.

5. Be on your best behavior. Do you spend a lot of time in the bathroom getting ready? While on vacation, be aware that you need to share that bathroom. If you don't normally hang up your clothes at night, this might be a good time to start a new habit. If you are considerate about sharing tight quarters with another person, chances are things will go well.


6. Stretch your limits for tolerance. On the flip side, maybe he's not quite as tidy as you are, he isn't hungry at the same time or wants to sleep later. Compromise wherever you can and overlook things that don't really matter. In the long run, remembering what's important in the big picture will keep you in each other's good graces. You're on vacation so enjoy yourself and make the most of what is going well.

7. Don't be afraid to talk about things. Concerned about spending and activities? Be sure to talk through your concerns and expectations. Worried about too much drinking or sleeping? Bring that up too. Not everyone has the same ideas regarding fun, spending, partying or timing. The only way to work through it and avoid resentment is to talk things over.

This doesn't have to be a painful, long discussion. Just hit the hot spots. Then agree that you're both willing to discuss concerns as they come up because they will. Developing good communication skills is essential for a lasting, healthy relationship, so this offers the two of you a great start. Don't let it get heavy and make sure you have fun while you're away! Single? 10 Ways To Boost Your Self-Confidence
