You met the parents. You moved in together. Maybe you’re even talking about getting a dog! You’re in love, but are you ready to take it to the next level? Well, there’s nothing like a sexy, high-pressure getaway to kick things into overdrive and ruin what you already have by making you wonder if he should be proposing already. Here are some of our favorite vacation spots that will definitely bum you out when he doesn’t propose:
A winter trip to Aspen is sure to heat things up! And after you’ve hit the slopes, nothing beats heading back to the lodge and cuddling by the fire with your sweetie! Well, unless your sweetie were to look you in the eyes and tell you that you’ve made him happier than he ever dreamed was possible and can’t imagine life without you. But sure, a charcuterie plate sounds good, too!
Is there anywhere more romantic than Paris? Well, your boyfriend would say there is because isn’t Paris kind of cliché? I mean it was his idea to go and all, but if he were going to propose, which he almost definitely will at some point, it would be somewhere warm and tropical. Right?? But that doesn’t mean you can’t still enjoy a night cruise down the River Seine. It’ll be okay.
Turks & Caicos
Just a short flight from Miami, with its white-sand beaches and turquoise waters, it’s no wonder Turks & Caicos is such a popular honeymoon spot! Which reminds your boyfriend that he “doesn’t really believe in marriage.” Which is kind of weird because on your second date he told you that you were ”the sort of girl [he] could see marrying.” The snorkeling, however, is top-notch!
Napa Valley, CA
Napa has it all, from secluded spas and breathtaking views to Michelin Star restaurants and of course the VINO! It’s also where your boyfriend’s younger brother got married last year and his aunt asked what YOU two were waiting for. Anyway, by the time you get back to your charming B&B after a day of wine tasting, you’ll definitely be surprised when he passes out drunk on the floor of your room. Good thing you got a manicure!
New Orleans, LA
Live music, strong drinks and did somebody say oysters? If you want to spice things up, the Big Easy is a no-brainer. But forget Bourbon Street. You’ll have a better time doing dinner and a show on Frenchman Street. Afterward, your boyfriend can tell you that he’s been doing a lot of thinking lately and he’s decided it’s finally time that he and his cousin write that screenplay they’ve been talking about. Your mom and dad will be so excited!
So what are you waiting for? Book a flight, pack those bags, and maybe start looking for a roommate!
