Vacation romances are exciting because they can happen so fast that you go from flirting to fellatio, to falling in love in just a few days. But beware, as most vacation romances don’t last, so don’t profess your love prematurely to someone you just met.
The change of atmosphere adds to the romantic fairy tale, far away from the patterns of daily responsibilities. If your vacation is at a romantic destination with the sounds of waves crashing on the beach, warm tropical weather and you feel relaxed, happy and horny there’s a good chance you will be easily tempted to hook up with the first good prospect you meet. You can expect the highs to be very fulfilling, but the lows could come crashing down once you wake up sober or find yourself with an STD from having unprotected sex.
You can still have a great time on vacation, let loose and explore romantic opportunities, but set some boundaries for yourself so that you have no regrets. For example, go to first base on the first date, second base on the second date, third base on third date and a home run with protection on the fourth date. Or you can wait to make love until after the vacation to see if you still have the same chemistry. You’ll soon find out if the other person is genuinely interested in getting to know you or if he or she just wants to get laid. If they don’t ask you about your life, get uncomfortable talking about themselves or avoid sharing information about their family, friends and work, you may just want to remain platonic buddies.
Vacation romances can lead to falling in love and a lasting relationship with someone special if you are lucky, but be aware of the possible pitfalls. Enjoy your vacation and treat yourself as if you are madly in love with you, then you can’t get hurt.
