While the idea of going on vacation with a new partner may sound exciting and romantic, the truth is it may not be the best thing for a relationship. A new Dating.com survey finds:
- 47% of people say that a relationship ended after going on vacation together.
- One main reason is that partners discovered a quirk or habit about their S.O. they just couldn’t get passed, including:
- Placing dirty laundry on clean sheets instead of in the hamper
- Chewing loudly with their mouth open
- Waking up oddly early for no particular reason
- Couples reported discovering their partner’s odd obsessions during a trip, with some of the strangest being:
- Annoyance with their partner over the way they organize their suitcase.
- Not budging on seat preference on the flight.
- Not compromising on their preferred side of the hotel bed.
- For many, vacations are supposed to be relaxing, but some couples have discovered while on trips that their partner doesn’t see it that way, and would rather over schedule a getaway.
- 31% say a relationship ended after being woken up too early in the morning.
- 38% ended things over showing up late to a dinner reservation.
- Others called it quits when their partner showed up late to the airport, causing them to miss their flight.
- Suddenly being together for a full week, couples start learning each other’s bathroom habits, which apparently ends relationships.
- 40% of those polled say bad habits like not replacing the toilet paper, or leaving toothpaste smeared on the sick, were things they couldn’t get passed when they got home.
- 31% discovered their partner’s true nature on vacation, seeing them snap at a flight attendant, tour guide or even them, leading to a breakup.
- 44% simply realized they and their partner were simply incompatible while on a trip.
