Is Your Relationship Ready For a Road Trip
It’s funny how things work out. In the beginning of your attraction and the kindling of the romance, the littlest things are just so darn cute. Six months later they drive you absolutely crazy. Being stuck in an area of less than 10 cubic feet for hours at a time, such as taking a road trip with your partner can be a stressful situation. At the same time it focuses your attention on working out the problems.
Communication is essential in any relationship. Be prepared to talk about everything and anything. More importantly, as the leader you will have to be able to listen to her, and address her issues calmly and with compassion. Once you have addressed her issues, you can bring your problems to the table.
Good communication requires trust and the capacity to care about how the other person feels. If you are not at that point in the relationship, I can’t really recommend that you take a trip together quite yet. Of course, travel can be a wonderful way for couples to bond and get to know each other, as long as they don’t kill each other first!
