Whether you're early dating, or "we're definitely dating," it's the make or break journey every couple must have.
Traveling together for a proper amount of time can predict if you're a good fit with each other. If cohabitation isn't your thing or an option, traveling together could be a glimpse into what under one roof looks like. It's a wonderful relationship crossroad where you get to test compatibility and fact find at the same time. Traveling reduces you to being a diamond in the rough, where shining is limited to the way you respond to unforeseen situations. How you deal with what goes down shows what you're made off and if you're worth betting on. It's no wonder veteran comedian Bill Murray recently said: If you think she's it, travel with her. If sparks still fly when you touch down, propose tout de suîte in the middle of the arrival hall! OK, I paraphrased but you get the point.
Does your partner want to do the same things or unilaterally trades off your preferences with his choices? Does she roll with unexpected delays or complains, gets angry and rubs in the "I told you so..." with a very black face. Traveling will show you all that because it allies with Murphy's Law, supporting "what can go wrong will go wrong" without much question. Unplanned situations will force you to team together (or not), in dirty clothes, without makeup or clean smelling underwear, to deal with that sticky mess. It shows you if her being "crazy" and you being "out of your mind" (since you're crazy in love with her) is an implosion waiting to happen or a prelude to stuff good dreams are made of. Will your trip be postcards from the edge? It's your job to find out. Whether you're early dating, or "we're definitely dating," it's the make or break journey every couple must have.
