In life, there are levels. Every height can be surmounted and every experience can be outdone, which is why I’m here to tell you, if you haven’t, to level up and go on a trip with your significant other.
During the early stages of a relationship, when it’s just puppy love and everything is fine, you’ll hardly find anything wrong.
But time goes by and what you once saw as cute is now a huge pet peeve and the patience you once thought was endless, mysteriously runs out.
So, to avoid the high, and potential low, of life after infatuation, you should book a trip with them.
There is no better way of knowing whether or not you are truly compatible with another human being than traveling with them.
On the most basic level, you log in significant quality time with your significant other when on a trip.
Because you’re going to be somewhere different than where you are normally, you’ll be interested in things like sightseeing and trying out new activities.
The activities and just the thrill of being in a completely different setting will heighten the memories and even the intimacy between you two.
Not to mention you’ll be able to come back with tons of souvenirs that will always hold the memories of the trip.
Built For Pressure
The only relationships that last are the ones that can bend and not break. The relationships that always stand upright are cool, too, but are also the most boring.
A complex relationship that can handle the ups and downs of all the random curveballs that life throws at you is going to be the relationship that has tenure. What throws more random curveballs than traveling?
Think about how stressful traveling is: TSA, getting directions from locals — who, for some reason, never know where anything is — or just the tension of having to always be aware in unfamiliar surroundings.
Watch how someone, as well as your relationship, reacts under pressure and witness who they truly are.
Another reason traveling with your significant other is a great gauge on the type of person they are or how compatible you two will be is because it gives you both a unique opportunity to judge how you treat others at your service.
From Uber rides and restaurants to the hotel attendants, paying attention to how they mind the people giving them a hand is a great indicator of the type of character they have.
And because you’re traveling, there is be an abundant amount of those types of situations.
If you make it back from a trip in one piece, content, or even more into each other, then you just may have something special.
On the contrary, if you found yourself swallowing your tongue and rolling your eyes a whole bunch, then you may have some thinking to do.
