Can a Romantic Vacation Be Just What the Workaholic Needs?

Imagine planning a vacation for months, counting down the days until you can finally relax and escape the stresses of life. You excitedly tell your friends and family about your trip and spend restless weeks packing and preparing for your adventure.

But then, just days before you're set to leave, your partner gets an urgent meeting that they can't miss. Suddenly, your well-planned vacation is canceled and all your hard work is for nothing.

Workaholics are often praised for their dedication and work ethic, but when it comes to balancing work and personal life, they often fall short. If you're in a relationship with a workaholic and you're trying to plan a romantic getaway, here are 5 critical questions to ask.

1. Is it "peak season at their job?"

It is essential to know if your travel dates fall within their busiest time of the year. If their phone is always alerting them of something, it's best to consider alternate dates to avoid a last-minute cancellation.

2. Has your partner been off the radar recently?

If you're trying to get your partner's attention and they're not responding, it might be because they're busy with work. It's probably not the best time to talk to them about vacation plans if their mind is occupied with anything else.

3. What is your partner's response when you talk about vacation plans?

Dropping hints about taking a vacation can either go really well or really bad. If the person you're hinting at gets excited and has a big smile on their face, then you're good to go! However, if their facial expression turns sour or they give you a weird look, then it might be time to re-think your strategy. It's important to pay attention to the signals your partner is giving you so that you don't end up pushing them away.

4. How is the internet connection in your vacation spot?

Email checking for some is almost to an obsessive-compulsive level. If there is a good internet connection, you can assure your partner that he/she can always check at any time. Plus, if they have an urgent call, Skype or Zoom video and voice calls can be arranged.

5. Is there a way back within 24 hours?

A crisis can't be averted. Life-changing decisions sometimes come without warning. If the need arises and the trip has to be cut short, are you able to go back rather quickly?
