    Being single and dating others for not longer than a three months period in the previous ten years, living with my bf for the last 1.5 years is a big change for me.

    As we planned our vacation, I wanted to a few days to myself. Yes, thoughts of my carefree single days came to my mind. And of course the mischief that I got up to. We have the agreement of playing together when aboard but not at home. So i doubt it's my mischievous nature kicking in. But I just wanted to be alone, meet up with old friends and not me seen always as a plus one.

    Is it acceptable to want a vacation from a relationship?

    Two words: SEPERATE VACATIONS! If you have such an agreement.

    Even as a couple living together you are not required to spend all your free time together. Taking an evening or a day on a weekend for yourself should be totally acceptable to your boyfriend. As long as you can stick to the rules of your relationship, I see no issues with that.

    I'm interested in seeing the replies to this thread.

    I have never really thought about something like that. Having to take a vacation or break from your significant other, but maintaining the relationship. I've never had that relationship though, so that would probably be why.

    But I agree with the guy above, it's not mandatory to spend every waking moment of free time with your dude. You should be able to do what you want.

    I don't think during your vacation you should fuck other dudes of course, but kickin it with old friends is always a great idea.
