How baecations test your compatibility


Planner vs just winging it

When organised people go on holiday it’s like taking on a project. You plan every little thing. Your partner, on the other hand, might be the type that just wants to get to the destination and go with the flow. This might cause tension as his lack of organisation skills can impact other aspects of your life together as a couple.  

Follow the GPS vs ‘I know the way’

This is always a biggie, especially if you’re going to a place you’ve never been to before. Getting lost with your man after a 10-hour drive can test you patience and your mood can change from calm to irritated in a second. The trip can make you realise whether or not your partner is comfortable admitting their wrongdoings or not.

Are you kind or rude?

Holiday season is busy, especially in restaurants so when grabbing something to eat you might want to keep a close eye on how he treats the staff. Does he snap at the waiters or talks to them respectfully? This can give you a reflection on how he might treat you in future.

Emergency back-up plan vs ‘Oh no!’

Things can go wrong at any time. You might lose your luggage, wallet or get there and the weather is totally off. The big question is how do you both react to this situation. Are you able to come up with viable solutions when you’re under pressure?

Stereotype vs adventurous

Having an overly adventurous partner teaches you to be open to trying new things, if you don’t you might end having big problems. What you can learn from this is whether you both have supportive personalities or not.
