It's Labor Day weekend, which means some of you might be getting out of town for a romantic getaway. And not to be a buzzkill, but there are lots of things that could go WRONG. Here are three common ones . . . and how to fix them.
1. Overexposure. But not from the sun . . . spending more time TOGETHER than you're used. Even if you live together, it can happen on vacation, and could lead to arguing. So make sure to plan one or two things SOLO, like golf or yoga.
2. High expectations. When you're on vacation, it usually means one thing: vacation sex! But if it's not happening every night . . . because you're too full, too drunk, too tired, whatever . . . it can be frustrating.
Instead, take advantage of not having to be up for work every day and get-it-on in the morning. You're more likely to be in the mood earlier . . . AND it's a great way to start the day.
3. An unexpected disaster. No matter how much you plan, there's always the risk something will go wrong, like the airline losing your luggage, someone stealing your stuff, or you hitting something with your rental car. And it ALWAYS leads to a fight.
The best thing you can do is mentally prepare yourself for a stressful situation before you leave, try to find the humor in it, and remind yourself those types of things make better stories in the end. (Ask Men)
