Do you dream of romantic trips to Dubai, getting engaged in Paris or moving closer to wildlife in the Safari? Or do you freak out when the man you’ve been dating for less than 6months asks you go with him to a trip to Erin Ijesha or Kajuru Castle in Kaduna
People have different approaches to going away as a couple, and it’s hard to know when is the right time. How do you know when you’re ready?
According to new findings, it’s better to do it sooner rather than later – and it’s probably earlier than you’d think. You should go on holiday with your partner within the first three months of dating them, apparently. Few Nigerians, however, make their honeymoon the first travel/getaway experience they have; even after many years of dating.
A study of 1,000 adults by Hilton Hotels & Resorts found that six in ten people think it’s a good idea to go away with someone you’ve been seeing for three months.
It’s one way to test compatibility, for sure, but there’s also the chance you won’t know each other well enough to deal with spending such a long, intense amount of time with no one else for company.
However, the study also found that one in three – single people and not those on holiday with their partners – are looking for love on their travels. This could account for 28% of transethnic or foreign marriages. There are numerous romantic getaway and vacation deals you can choose from if you plan to go on a baecation soon.
