to go or not to go (on vacation)


I am getting ready to make reservations to leave for a one-month trip to the Carribbean in June of this year.  I phoned my partner to tell him about it and he is not happy.  It is the first time that I felt the need to notify him beforehand.  I don't know what's happening.  I seem to be having a bad premonition.  According to you, what should I do? Leave or stay?  It's been 7 months since my last vacation but I feel I need another one soon.  There is something nagging at me but I don't know what it is. Should I leave or should I stay?  What would you do?  Need an answer soon before making my reservations.  Thanks!

more details?

It's hard to tell from your post if you are uneasy about the trip itself and are having a strange premonition, or if you're just ticked off at your boyfriend for being a party pooper? Perhaps a few more details will help us offer better advice...

Don't force it

I can't speak to the premonition part, but in general my rule of thumb is: Don't force it. Whether it's buying a pair of shoes I'm not 100% in love with or something more substantial, I've learned that going into something half-hearted often leads to half-hearted results. In other words, I usually don't grow to love something I bought if I had to convince myself to buy it.

You could go on your vacation and everything could be great, or you could both go and be in a bad mood. If you need a break, you could always schedule a mini weekend getaway now and do something in a couple of weeks when the timing is better for both of you.
