With Valentine’s Day just around the corner, a romantic getaway is the perfect gift for you and your husband, wife, boyfriend or girlfriend. It gives you the perfect opportunity to spend time alone with each other which can either make or break the relationship. Hopefully the trip away will benefit the relationship. Here are some tips to remember for Valentine’s Day weekend getaways for 2013 to ensure that you and your honey have a great time on the getaway.Tips for Romantic Trips1. If the two of you have been dating for only a very short time, then taking a romantic trip is premature and not a good idea. You may not know each other well enough yet to go away together or you may not be comfortable with each other yet to go away together. In these cases, dinner, flowers, etc, are better Valentine’s gifts.2. Have you and your partner traveled together before? If not, has the possibility of a romantic getaway been discussed before by the two of you? There are many aspects of a getaway that can be awkward or uncomfortable. If you have never traveled together, you do not want to simply make certain assumptions such as whether to have one room or two rooms. This can be an awkward situation unless you both discuss it beforehand and you both are clear about the getaway details.3. Work commitments can be an issue so if you are looking into Valentine’s Day weekend getaways for 2013, you may want to find out first whether he or she can get away for the romantic weekend that you have in mind. While you may have plenty of vacation time and impulsively think that a romantic trip would be great, your love may not have this same luxury. This is especially true if you want a weeklong vacation whereas your partner can only get away for the weekend. Also, with many people even those with regular 9 to 5 jobs still putting in time on weekends to catch up on work, assuming that they have weekends off is not smart.Even if you want the trip to be a surprise, you need to ask him or her whether they can get away for a particular weekend. You can still leave the destination a surprise.4. Romantic getaways can be tricky when considering the budget. While you may want to impress with an extravagant getaway, do make sure that you can afford it. We all want a partner in life who exercises sound financial judgment. Also, an extravagant trip may not be appropriate and may leave the other person uncomfortable depending on the relationship. If you do not have the funds, do not put any trips on credit cards if you know you will not be able to pay off the balance at the end of the month.In addition, there are many affordable getaways that will be more that perfect for the two of you. While we may all want a trip to St. Tropez, a weekend trip to a bed and breakfast in a romantic location can be even better for the two of you.5. Pick a location that your partner will enjoy which will be even better if you like the location as well. Do not pick any self serving vacation spots such as those with great golfing if this is your career or hobby.6. Lastly, remember to have fun, compromise, not sweat the small stuff and not be afraid to try new things on the trip. Simply have a great time with each other whether you decide to do 20 different activities or whether you choose to do nothing but simply be together.
