Top ten dating rules for vacations

I have officially shaken my birthday blues off and I am actually looking forward to the big day next Monday. I plan to have a wonderful, fun-filled trip to Florida. I will relax and read, soak up some sun, and most of all flirt like a professional! I’m talking shameless, nothing to lose “boy macking” behavior.

Vacations have a way of loosening some of your inhibitions, don’t they? That is the great thing about taking vacations, you can forget all your worries and focus on having a good time.

Vacations are supposed to be fun but sometimes it doesn’t always work out that way. I can recall a few “when keeping it real goes wrong” trips. I made a wrong move (told an older woman I was alone) and ended up stuck with jerk (her son!) on a boat for the weekend. Or the time when I landed in the midst of a couple’s retreat as I was going solo. Fun times, oy.

What is the best vacation you ever had? Did you go alone or with friends? You guys may know that I am not a huge fan of dating rules, so to speak. I admit that perhaps there is something to be said for being “grown up” and adhering to a few guidelines to avoid any problems.

What would you list as your top ten dating tips or rules for summer vacations? Do you believe that being away from your normal world allows you explore a different side of your personality?

Have you ever been on vacation and did something totally out of character for you?

On Topic: The only Rule I have is what happens on Vacay stays on Vacay…(wink)

Off topic: Every time I see those pics or videos of the Gulf, I get mad as hell :(
Nobody is being honest about why all of the oil was allowed to gush into our waters
for so long. They didn’t want to cap it because then there would have been no oil at all -nor do the conservatives want a ban on drilling, Talk about Tea Parties
That’s a whole lot of Texas Tea.
Okay -now I’m better

good morning!:) kym, i like those rules. they work for me! lol

@wisediva…i would also add that if you bring someone be SURE that they can follow the vacation rules kym posted. otherwise, it’ll make your vacation a disaster!

the best vacation i ever had is a tie between going to negril (w/my sister) and going to st. croix (alone). there was something very liberating about going away to a beautiful island solo. it was also my first trip to the caribbean. i had a blast b/c i was on my own watch and had no one looking over my shoulder…lol. it was great. negril was awesome b/c i was w/my sister. we get along well and were on super chill mode for six days…nothing like fresh lobster and champagne on the beach.:)

Hey F2B! Now that is cool you went on vacation by yourself. I’ve always wanted to do that, but my mom will not let me. It seems very liberating. I met a lady on a cruise once, and she said how free she felt. Fresh lobster and champagne on the beach so true.

On topic: I am very free on vacation. I dress and behave outside my norm I am still time sensitive and use reason, but there is a certain peace I have about me on vacation.

Not in any particular order

1. Make sure you really know the fun side of your travel partner

2. No itinerary or plan – just go with the flow when you get there

3. Be clear beforehand on the “camping” arrangements. :-)

Summertime…

Good day…

What would you list as your top ten dating tips or rules for summer vacations?

I think the biggest mistakes that we make are that we forget that vacations are for relaxation and taking a date on a vacation especially in the early stages can be a big nono.

My tips:

1. If you two are just dating, make sure to keep everything fun, light hearted and free. A couple of activities that you BOTH want to do are cool, but please no iteniaries.

2. If you and your mate had a fight in the last few weeks, on vacation is not the chance to try to SHOW OUT; i.e, looking and flirting with other people, be respectful.

3. Allow each other a little space and dont crowd their space. Even a 30 min walk works wonders.

4. If you two are here together, relax on the texting and being connected like you normally would. Dont constantly take calls, text, etc. Vacation=Disconnect.

5. Make sure to go out and do something together where you both can let loose, a dance club, beach, something!

6. Dont compare this trip to a trip you had with an ex before. People do this!

7. Share some costs, nobody wants to feel used.

8. Dont make this the time to go deep with each other by having drawn out conversations.

9. Dont use this as a time to set the agenda for the rest of the encounter i.e. when we get back home we are getting married right?

10. NO FIGHTING/ARGUING/BICKERING/ETC! Please!

My best vacation didn’t involve a man, it involved my daughter.

I took her on a 7-day cruise and we had a blast. Truly, that was my best vacation.

My worst vacation was when I went to the Bahamas with a male friend only to find out later he tried to use me as his muse to smuggle drugs back home. Found this out as we were packing to come back home. I wouldn’t let him put anything in my bag and we had a huge argument. When the police came on the plane I sat back silently fuming but so relieved since I knew I was clean. Hot as hell, but clean as the driven snow!

I like adventure vacations. Deep Sea fishing, hunting, hiking, camping or white water rafting. Great fun with plenty of stories to share. I don’t confuse those with “shopping trips”, when we head to the beach and may go to a dance club or bar nightly. The main emphasis on those trips have always been shopping.

#1. Don’t be afraid to go simply because no one else you know wants to go (or can afford to go).

#2 Read the Dept. of State travel warnings for the couontry you plan to visit.

#3 realize that the crime levels are usually exaggeratted in the media for most non-Westernized countries… if you are comfortable walking the streets in a major US city you will be fine in most places (but there are exceptions…LoL)

#4 don’t let a lack of the ability to speak the language prevent you from taking a trip.

#5 Don’t eat at any chain restaurants that we have in the US

#6 Don’t buy souveniers that were “made in China”

Good morning all,

So far you all have listed some really good ‘rules of thumb’.

I like the idea of being open to trying at least one thing you’ve never done before…

Having a loose schedule but maybe some possible ideas of things to do…

Leave the reality of life at home because it will be there when yo azz step off the plane

Ensure that whomever you go with is someone or people you can actually have a good time with. (Some folks are just as boring on vacay than they are at home—shouldve stayed yo azz back at the ranch)

Bring comfortable shoes

Don’t be afraid to wear that cute mini that you probably wouldn’t wear back home.

Don’t be afraid to meet new folks

Drink
Drink
Drink

Be aware of your surroundings as much as possible

If going with an SO…bring a little something new he hasn’t seen you in already and WORK DAT THANG OUT! ;-)

More rules:

Do not trust the GPS, it may take you through an unsavory part of town.

Do not go to the club that is advertising the Friday Night Party on the radio, unless you personally know someone there locally. LOL

Do not sleep with anyone from that area, they are probably the local “whore” (not being gender specific)

Good morning folks! Now this is my type of topic – VACATION!

Love the lists. I’d add one thing – research the laws of your destination. You need to know if you have to pay $10 cash to get out of the country so you’ll set it aside and won’t hold up the line at the airport because all you have is a credit card and your husband has to run get some $ from the folks that dropped you off at the airport.

Which reminds me of my worst vacation – it was with a guy I was dating and he didn’t bring enough money. He’d committed many other transgressions prior to that but I thought about leaving his behind on that island, LOL.

Best vacation was South Africa – had a ball!

Kym – you’re going to love NOLA! I wish I knew the name of this lunch place that has the lobster ravioli and $0.10 martinis. Name escapes me, but both times I went I left full as a tic and tipsy ;-)

NOLA is my favorite ‘let my hair down’ city. Forget Vegas – give me NOLA. I’ll be back in September for the game. It will be my hubby’s first time there.

If you travel with someone, try to make sure you have some level of traveling compatibility. If you’re an early rising, adventuring sightseer and your travel compatriot is a sleep-in, all-day poolsider that doesn’t want to venture out, trying to get one to conform to the other’s vacationing style could cause aggravation.

If you organized the travel arrangements and itinerary for the trip, make sure you’re on accord on what to possibly expect. One annoyance to avoid is for you to arrange everything and then your travel compatriot complains about everything yet they wanted nothing to do with travel arrangements.

Know your sidekick’s spending style and reliability, and make sure there’s and understanding on what you’re treating for vs. what you’re covering and expect to be paid back. If you do cover some expenses for your sidekick, know that they will reciprocate and not turn into an amnesiac when it’s time to reimburse you for picking up their costs.

Good Morning!

Boy, all this talk of vacations makes me wish I was on one NOW!

Before my SO, all of the best vacations were either with my family or friends! Unless you & SO are VERY established, I wouldn’t plan a big vacation, maybe a little road trip or weekend getaway, but that’s it. Then you don’t have to worry about MONEY or SLEEPING ARRANGEMENTS, etc. You can concentrate on having FUN!

The few trips I took with boyfriends were not great. Were not awful, just not great. I would have had more fun by myself!

Top vacations I’ve had, in no particular order:

10 day Cali vacation to visit my uncle & his family. That was the last trip with my mother – she passed the following year. We had a blast, took a side trip to Vegas!

New Orleans AKA convention/mini family reunion. One of my aunts was being honored as a golden soror. They tried to get me to pledge – said I would cross over that 3-day weekend. Nobody would put up the money for me though!LOL!!

Cali for my best friends birthday, 10yr wedding anniversary and goddaughter birthday. We took a side trip to Santa Monica and had dinner at this fabulous rest near the beach. I met chef G. Garvin, who was sitting near us.

Christmas 2008 to Disney with SO and his family. Definitely the happiest place on earth, especially for Christmas!

NYC to visit best friend before she moved to Cali. Had a blast!

Why I choose NOLA over Vegas: I don’t gamble nor am I a shopper. But I do love good food, and being able to party without having to get all dressed up, stand behind someone’s velvet rope and pay a cover charge. If the weather’s right, I get to jog along the river in NOLA and through the French Quarter. I love walking along Bourbon Street at night and wandering in and out of various clubs to dance. And I LOVE the people there and how everyone calls me ‘baybeh’, LOL.

1. You do not have to go on every excursion, visit every site or participate in every activity.

2. Plan for a day of doing nothing.

3. Do not go with someone who is obsessed with sticking with the schedule or must be in charge. (These types tend to add unnecessary drama when Murphy’s Law kicks in.)

4. Learn to relax when dealing with gate agents, cabbies, shuttle drivers, desk clerks and so on. They have been dealing with tense, travel weary people all day. Be a breath of fresh air or kill them with kindness and you just may get the free upgrade.

5. Pack light. Find outfits that go with as few pairs of shoes as possible. (I’m a big fan of travelling in yoga gear.)

6. Find something to do that is off the beaten path that will give you a true experience of local flavor. However, do not place yourself in harm’s way to do so.

7. Drink an apple martini or three on Day One. Pina Colado’s on Day Two. Rum Runners on Day Three. Please email me for drinking directions for trips over three days.

8. Do not pack anything in check luggage that is irreplaceable. Keep your most important valuables with you in your carry-on luggage. Trust me, I work behind the scenes at the airport. I know how easily bags get lost, things get stolen out of bags and sometimes, those machines rip bags open and the contents get destroyed.

9. Speaking of #8 – Don’t check your most expensive luggage. Buy luggage that you don’t mind taking a beating to be put under planes.

You may be having twins! Something is in the sunshine here in Atlanta! (lol).

Hey all –

Most all of my vacations are the best. I love to travel! I guess my favorite one was Paris. It’s been my dream to visit since I was 13. The beach vacations are awesome too because I love the water and clear beaches!

My sister got married in Antigua and because the hotel was a couples resort (and I didn’t come with anyone) I really felt single on that trip! The whole resort was filled with honeymooners and engaged couples. There were a few couples that were there to work on their marriage though. I could tell cuz they looked unhappy, didn’t talk at dinner and the husbands starred a second too long. :lol:

So, in the next three years we will be moving back to Minnesota. :)

Also, second favorite vacation was to Washington, DC. Many of the attractions there are free or low cost. My best friend proposed to his wife at the Lincoln Memorial. We were in town with them that weekend and enjoyed the Cherry Blossom festival. The metro actually makes it pretty easy to get around DC. We stayed in Bowie, Maryland. FYI, there is a 6 month wait time to get tickets for the White House tour and you have to go through you US Rep or US Senator. It really wasn’t that expensive either.

Dating Trip to NYC is great also. Who could not like a walk through Central Park. Seeing a Show on Broadway. I would suggest getting tickets in advance. Some people live in the TKTS line. I am glad that I didn’t do that. The Grey Line Bus tours can get you around The CIty. The NYC public transportation is like no other. There is so much to do there. I’ve even taken the Mrs. there just for day trips. Delta and Airtran have numerous flights there daily. It may even be one per hour. I have friends that live here and work there. We usually stay in a Bed and Breakfast that is in Brooklyn. NYC is a more expensive.

Miami is another place where I’ve enjoyed a dating vacation. It was a little different than the others. It was little more relaxing than the other places. We really hung around the beach. We did visit some places around Miami, but mostly just chilled. We went out to a few clubs. Not to mention that we literally ran into Luther Campbell & Eve one time in the Pelican.

New Orleans is well known for gravity storms. Other than party ’til you puke, I’m not sure of the appeal anymore… it’s not the city it once was. Much of the cultural goodness is now absent, with the more decadent being persistent.

Vacation for me is more along the lines of a quiet beach or cabin in the mountains, seeing historical sites, stuff like that. Relaxation varies for different people, I suppose.

New Orleans is just somewhere that I am not drawn to. I don’t care how many times I hear how great it is it just has never been enough to give me that urge to want to find out what it is all about.

Now I do like the casinos. My husband hates it but I like it. Never been to Vegas but have been to Cherokee and Biloxi a few times with my girl friends. The last cruise we took I spent a couple of hours at the slot machine.

When plan our vacations we make sure there is something we both will enjoy doing. He likes diving and parasailing and all the kind of stuff. I try that stuff because he asks me to but it’s his thing. I like it okay after trying it but still that’s his thing.

During our last cruise vacay we did the off road safari and that was nice. That is something we both want to do again.

Our next big vacation will be to Spain. Not exactly sure though if we will do a cruise or fly there.

An item on my bucket list is to take a gondola ride in Venice. So maybe Barcelona this year and Venice next year.

Until I get to those big ones I will take as many small ones that come my way.

My son wants to go to Disney Land this year as opposed to Disney World. I tried to tell him that Disney World is better but he still wants to see for himself.

Or my trips as a single guy, Africa is #1. Lake Victoria and all of the wildlife around it. I went in through Kenya. It was really breathtaking.

Rio de Janerio is #2. Sinbad never lied when he said that Americans don’t know how to party. Carnival is amazing.

London is #3. The weather was cool and crummy, but I went there to see my favorite singer live, Sade. That alone put it in my top five. Buckingham Palace was cool, too. But hearing Sade sing about a woman in Somalia….

To show how much I love Sade, she made that trip rank higher than my #4 favorite trip to view the Sphinx, the Pyramids, etc.

Being well-travelled. Seeing the world. All wonderful things, however, at this point in my life, I’m not really into seeing places just to say I’ve seen them or doing things just to say that I’ve done them.

And quite frankly, I tend to care more about the friends and family that I am vacationing with than the actual destination. Because me and my folks bring our party with us and we have a good time regardless of the where.

Heidelberg – Beautiful felt like I was in the sound of music.
Brazil with J Slayer.. Been to Brazil alot but to go with your porn star Buddy Priceless
Ibiza – I wasnt too cool to dance all night
Nice – The scenery and wine was like a movie
Amsterdam – for obvious reasons
Florence – 2 words Leather Goods.. Gucci headquarters
Rome – The Coliseum
Beijing – Seeing a Shoalin Temple outside of Beijing but you know..
LA – This was my first flight and Vacation as a working adult.

Alot of this stuff was done under the guise of IT work.. I often travel alone.. I’ll come back later for the travelling with someone rules.

Now as for traveling.. Pack light preferably a hikers back pack, so you can keep your bags with you. Keep your passport and ID on you at all times, never leave them at the hotel.. Find out where the US Embassy is first thing. Exchange money at the airport for local currency cause if they see american dollars the price goes up.. Where ever you are plot your course before you go out using a map. Dont look like a tourist. Rent a Motorcycle or scooter to get around.. Its easier to move about and make corrections.

One way to get around the “going on vacation alone” is to go at the same time a group is going to be there. I have some friends who are lawyers and go to the Black Entertainment and Sports Lawyer convention every year. The conventions are always held on some Caribbean island. So I’d go during those time periods so that even if no one I knew was gonna be there, there would at least be some activities and people I’d want to be around.

Music Festivals are also a good idea. As well as themed cruises.

Avoid travelling there during the monsoon season,i think between June and October. Talk of katrinas,they have them ova there so frequently,it seems like a curse.

If u like jewellery,clothes and carperts..u will buy boatloads coz of the cheapness due the exchange rate in ur favor..
Indian women are pretty…but ur horny singles, u cant mess with them openly. U want one,u have to get her on the sly coz they(men) will stare u down on the streets until u feel uncomfortable.

And Im thinking her staying in his house has made him take the gloves off.. In every divorce there is one moment where ya’ll can either go right or go wrong and you remember it.. I remember mine when it was like Fcuk it…. It on now.. U wanna go to war I’ll take you to war.. And alot of the stuff I pulled in divorce court I feel bad about but felt like I didnt have any choice. Tell her if it is anyway they can get to the table draw it up and get in the courts themselves they would save a ton of money and time.. But that too much like right and both are being driven on emotions right now.. So thinking clearly is out the window.

Just gettingon and have not read the previous posts yet, but here is a rule fro men that may have already been noted:

KNOW YOUR TRAVELING COMPANION’S MONTHLY CYCLE (if an explanation is need for this, then you haven’t been out much!!!). Can make or break a good vacation (ask me how I know…no don’t actually, I’d rather forget).

Off topic…WTF (This guy REALLY needs a life. I at least hope they were “female”)

In AJC

“A 37-year-old man has been arrested for allegedly having sex with several horses, police said.

Newton County Sheriff’s Office Byron Christopher Jordan was arrested and charged with bestiality. He is accused of having sex with several horses.

Byron Christopher Jordan was apparently caught in the act Tuesday morning by the owner of the horses, who called Covington police. Jordan was charged with bestiality, a felony in Georgia, and with giving an officer a false name.

Lt. Wendell Wagstaff told the Covington News that Jordan was wearing only dirty pajama bottoms with the fly open. He also reportedly had a strong odor, according to the report.

Jordan, from Covington, was transported to the Newton County jail, where he is being held without bond. He was previously arrested on May 7 for DUI, according to jail records.

“It was just another arrest,” Covington Police Chief Stacey Cotton told the AJC.

Cotton declined to release further details, stating that the public information officer does not work past 5 p.m.

Horses sleep standing up, so this guy must:
A) Be tall as heck to have sex with a horse, do you know how high that area sits off of the ground?
B) Be very sneaky to sneak up behind a horse and penetrate.

I don’t believe he did that. He may have been up to something but sex with a horse? I have seen videos with women having sex with a horse but not a guy giving “it” to a horse.

After research I am a believer that he did have sex with the horse. He is a news snippet of a guy in Carolina who got 3 years in prison for having sex with a horse, the owner caught him on video.

She gave me her address and directions. I turn in and made a few turns here and there. When I got to her spot, there were a bunch of dudes standing around. I started to park and one dude approached my window while a couple other cats walked around the back of my car. I peeled out, and when I called ol’ girl to ask what was up, her phone just kept going straight to voicemail. I found out later that I was in the Jungles.

Legally she is just guilty of vehicular homicide or maybe manslaughter. (Well, that and DUI). It will be hard to argue that this was pre-meditated. The blood alcohol is evidence that she wasn’t in the right mind. So, the mens rea requirement for murder is not there. Manslaughter is a felony of the second degree.

Dreams, Poppa Grande You two are right because if a guy is not spending money he is not going to get a date or any sex. No matter how you spin it. Doesn’t matter if that money is spent on gifts, movies or food. If it is not being spent you are not getting it. So dating is social prostitution. LOL

I don’t disagree. Nothing in life is free. So, to get something you have to give something. That goes for just about everything in life. Just like with a prostitute, there is a price paid.

10. As others stated, limit contact with home. Drama will be there when you return,

9. Pay attention to your date; he/she will reveal some things (good and bad ). A trip often solidifies how I feel about someone (extended time means less opportunity to hide/run).

8. Must take great music if it is a road trip. Consult date to make sure you have something for her. ( I am male so the rest of by pronouns will be her or she :) ).

7. List must do activities beforehand. Discuss your list with her.

6. Talk about expenses beforehand.

5. Let her choose the hotel after agreeing on budget. I hate the idea of choosing something I am comfortable with but…..

4. Take your favorite beverage with you (can save a lot versus buying locally or at the bar).

3. Pay Cash.

2. Have Fun!

1. Have Fun and save deep talks for later!

I try to go to Europe at least once a year. Mainly Italy. I have always felt safe going anywhere there, and highly recommend it if you can avoid schedules.
1. Rent a car to go to places you cannot otherwise get to. Meet people you would not otherwise meet.
2. Train is also a good mode of travel if you are not comfortable with driving. They are frequent and travel the coast. Which means you will also miss the gorgeous towns up in the mountains along the Med.
3. Don’t go on scheduled tours. Discover it all yourself.
4. Never take a negative person with you!
5. Do not schedule anything way in advance. Just do it on the spur.
6. Never wash your passport in a washing machine.

Sestri Levanti is my favorite home base while in Italy. Drop dead gorgeous! Lag
