Underrated post from a passive aggressive, but real-talking person, probably a psychologist. I love it!
OP, since you said she works all year, and isn't free, and you have a high paying seasonal job, I'm going to ask you why you're lazy and deciding not to work year round in some other job. What gives? It kind of further illustrates a bit of some man child maturity here.>>1226771>>>1226504>>A person who has fought against every facet of the trip is not going to make a good traveling companion, is she?>nice glass-is-half-empty attitude, faggot. you'd be better served to realize that a person who has concerns but will listen to and be persuaded by the information you present would make an EXCELLENT companion, travel or otherwise.
Another great poster. This guy has critical thinking skills and likely experienced too. You know who makes a bad traveling companion? Probably you if your logic and thinking skills are any indication. Why don't you already know if she is a good traveling companion yet? Go somewhere together. When someone wants to travel with you, it's not a chain around your neck until you know it from experience. Refusing to travel with your spouse is simply infantile, especially when you haven't even given us the full details of where and when and for how long, because it might weight her opinions to us. You should be picking somewhere you both want to go, or agreeing that you'll take turns. You communicate though, and work it out.
I'm very traveled, and I can tell you there are coping skills you obtain when you travel with someone or someone(s) who don't exactly click in every way. Everything from separating after breakfast and arranging a meetup time later to making it clear that there is one thing you want to do that isn't negotiable, some band you must see, some piece of art. Communicate it upfront, not in the moment of course. Give and take. These skills that come out of your family if they werent dysfunctional, really.
