No matter the length of your relationship, trust me when I say that nothing — nothing — can prepare you for a weekend away with your significant other. As a survivor of several family trips with my beau’s immediate family, I have acquired a distinct, skillful on-the-trip training that I’ve coined Trip Survival Tricks. And since I’m a feminist to the max, it’s time I passed on this great wealth of information to all my committed ladies.
So, listen up.
And there you have it, friends. Keep it clean, keep it as impersonal as possible and don’t ever travel too far from the comfort of a cell phone tower. Put together an escape route ahead of time, check all exits, and be prepared to endure some of the most testing elements of the relationship experience. God speed, good friends!
