The Dos and Don'ts of Your First Vacation with Him

After chasing the guy and falling in love, what's the next bridge to cross? Taking a trip together! Sure, hiking, scuba diving and rock climbing are adventurous, but the real challenge is spending little time apart. What to wear, what to do, and how to act? If you think your relationship is up to the test, do yourself (and him) the favor of following the dos and don'ts of vacationing as a couple!
Don't Over Pack! This is easier said than done because we women tend to want options when packing for a long weekend. But this time think of your significant other. You don't want to look too high-maintenance because your man might get a little frightened and re-think his decision. Pack the essentials: one dress, one pair of dressy pants, one pair of jeans, and a few shirts that can be dressed up or dressed down. If you stick with the bare minimum, you are going to make your guy a happy camper!
Do Go With the Flow! It's one thing to be organized and excited, but it's another to be controlling and overbearing - Make a list of a few things you MUST see on your trip. Remember that you both may have different interests, so compromise is key. After all, you're there on vacation to relax and be with each other, so sit back and enjoy!
Don't Expect Him to Pay for Everything! There's an economy crunch going on and it's affecting all of us, so you can't expect your guy to pay for everything. Split the bills up or surprise him by paying for a few items ahead of time, so it's all taken care of when you arrive. While chivalry is still important, these days we women make some dough too, so keep that in mind!
Do Be Yourself! It may be your first time on vacation with him, but he likes you for you and that's why he invited you on this getaway. Make sure you are comfortable, and if you're not, do something about it. This way, you're both sure to have a great time and get to know one another even better.
