I also think it's worth traveling with a partner in the first year of dating because you'll learn a hell of a lot about each other.I've heard of couples traveling together and breaking up as a result, because they find out that they're totally incompatible." If both sides can express this, and then discuss what they say, and really hear each other, the fight might be over sooner rather than later. I wouldn't suggest that this happens in the first few months, unless your partner's parents live down the street from them, or you live with your parents, or some similar arrangement. Point is, it's a good idea to go to a big family or friend gathering with your partner in the first year.I would never suggest that you start a big blowout just to see what it's like to experience that with your partner, but in the first year, if you're in a healthy relationship and you and your partner both feel comfortable bringing things up, you'll have a serious argument. But as the first year comes to a close, if parents are in the picture on one or both sides and you still haven't introduced your partner to your parents, and/or they haven't brought you home, it might be worth asking yourself (or your partner) why that is so. If it's a wedding, you'll learn things about the way your partner feels about marriage (and have a ton of fun).Chances are great that you will participate in behavior you otherwise would not get involved in. You should familiarize yourself with your college’s sexual misconduct policy and definition of consent and know what a healthy relationship looks like. Maybe you want to do some things differently at college, or perhaps there are some friendships you know you need to leave behind.
AND SEXNo matter where you go to school, you might be shocked at the drug and alcohol scene.
If you hop an hour away from your city or town for a sweet weekend together and it goes well, then you're ready for the next step.
You'll learn a lot about your partner by strapping on your seatbelt beside them on a plane.
about your boo, from their eye color to their childhood crush’s name.
But there are some more personal or intimate questions for couples to ask each other after a year of dating that will make sure you and your partner see eye-to-eye on the big stuff for the future.
