5 Things To Be Aware Of On Your First Road Trip With Your Significant Other

5 Things To Be Aware Of On Your First Road Trip With Your Significant Other
Elizabeth Anne Design

So very soon I will be going on a road trip with my boyfriend. It's a 4-hour trip in a small car with just the two of us. Some of the thoughts that are going through my head are:

How am I going to choose the music I like?

Am I going to annoy him even more with my weird questions that I ask on a daily basis?

Am I going to able to handle all of his guy-smells in his car?

Yes, these are some silly questions. However, they are important to me because it's the first road trip I have taken with him. So here are some tips I have come up with to handle the (hopefully) enjoyable car ride with my love.

1. Make sure you do not have a grudge with him/her beforehand.

You know that time you told him to put the toilet seat down and he just wouldn't and then he did it again last night? Do not stress. Most likely it will make your car ride a smidge awkward if you are giving him the evil eye all the way down the road.

2. Find a common ground on the music choices.

If you have different tastes in music, then change the type of music every few minutes to find a common ground!

3. Bring the snacks!

Wanna make sure they are are not grump-buckets? Feed them! Good snack foods should always work to get their spirits up!

4. Make stops!

Don't just sight see from the car, stop and explore (if you have the time). If you are driving through the mountains, stop at an overlook and see the pretty scenery. If there is a cool tourist attraction, stop there! At the very least, even just stop for a potty break.

5. Still be affectionate.

Lean over and just give them a kiss on the cheek while they are driving! Do not do anything reckless. But just hold their hand and make them feel safe.

It’s everyone’s favorite time of year. Christmastime is a celebration, but have we forgotten what we are supposed to be celebrating? There is a reason the holiday is called Christmas . Not presentmas. Not Santamas. Not Swiftmas. Christmas.
