When you’ve been in a May-December relationship with the same person for a long time, it can sometimes start to feel like it’s fizzling out. That’s not to say that the relationship has gone completely sour—it’s just not as exciting as it may have been in the beginning when everything was new and electrifying. We’ve seen this happen to a lot of May-December relationships, because they often start out hot and steamy and then calm down once the couple becomes more comfortable with each other.
Sometimes, you just need to find a way to spice up your May-December relationship. Gifts are a good way to make your partner feel special, but there’s something else that’s proving to be more effective at strengthening relationships: travel.
A recent survey revealed that when couples travel together, both parties feel more satisfied with the relationship. They also tend to enjoy more romance and better sex even after the vacation is over. Just over 60% of the couples surveyed said that a weekend getaway did more for adding romance in their relationship than exchanging gifts did. Furthermore, over three-quarters (77%) of the respondents who travel as a couple said that they have a healthy sex life, while only 63% of the couples who didn’t travel together said the same.
If you’re trying to add a little more zest to your May-December relationship, it clearly wouldn’t hurt to travel together. It doesn’t have to be anything extravagant—even just spending the weekend at a glitzy hotel can feel like a vacation and do wonders for bringing you and your older man closer together. Book a five-star hotel downtown, get a couple’s massage done, order room service, pull out your sexiest piece of lingerie, and just have fun.
Although, spending some quality time together somewhere exotic like Turks and Caicos, or somewhere romantic like Paris, would be that much nicer. And chances are your sugar daddy won’t turn down the opportunity to whisk you off on a romantic getaway. Long story short: it’s time to start packing!
What do you think: Can traveling together really work to strengthen your May-December relationship?
