Every woman enjoys her creature comforts, but it might be time to give up your down comforter, hot shower and gourmet meals, at least for a weekend. Even if you hate camping, if the guy you like wants to take you, then you should go! Here are all the reasons why.
When you’re curled up in his arms under the stars watching the fire crackle, you’ll wonder why you don’t go camping more often. Camping provides you and the guy you like a natural opportunity for romance.
Enjoy His Undivided Attention
One of the best reasons to go camping with a guy you like is because you will be the lucky recipient of his undivided attention. You won’t have to squeeze your conversations in between commercials during the latest sporting events, or compete with the PlayStation 3. When you go camping, you have more opportunity for direct interaction and communication. You know all those times you felt like you wanted to talk? Going camping gives you plenty of opportunities.
Discover His Inner Tarzan
Even if you are an independent, financially stable, confident woman, you might like a little Tarzan in your man. There’s something primal and attractive about a guy who can provide food, comfort and safety in the wild! When you go camping with the guy you like, you’ll glean information about his inner Tarzan. You’ll see his strength and his survival instincts in action.
Find Out if He’s a Provider
If you like a man who is good provider and who can handle making a fire, pitching a tent and warding off dangerous animals, then you’ll find out if the guy you like is “the one” when you go camping. If you ever want to get serious with him, get married and have children, you’ll need to know about his ability to provide.
Because You’re a Good Sport
Even if you hate camping, the fact that you’re willing to try it and go anyway will earn you some respect points. Effort goes a long way at the beginning or a transition point in a relationship.
Your Favorite Activity is Next
By going camping with him, you now have the right to ask him to do your favorite activity, even if he hates it. If you braved the bugs and the hard ground, he can accompany you to a concert, the ballet or your favorite art museum. Fair is fair. But taking him shopping is not a fair trade. You’d have to log in quite a few camping hours to justify taking him along to the mall.
Someone Else Might Say Yes
Yes, you could lose the guy you like over not going camping. Unless he is part-woodsman and camps every single weekend, you should go camping with him. Show him you’re interested in what interests him. If you don’t, someone else might.
