The Sunday Topic #1 | Holiday Romance

January 5, 2014

The Sunday Topic:

I wanted to start a series that I’m going to be running for the whole year one that’s going to inspire people, make people happy and make them realise how beautiful life actually is!! So each Sunday I’m going to be posting a lifestyle post about something. This could be anything from good topics to dark topics that no one ever really talks about. By doing this I hope to open peoples eyes about how beautiful the world is but also how dark and lonely it can be. 

Holiday Romance:

I decided to choose Holiday Romance for this weeks topic seeing as we’ve just finished our Winter break and I’ve just come off holiday where I did indeed experience a holiday romance. So I thought it would be quite relevant to talk about. First of all holiday romances are always a bittersweet topic they’re bitter because you know they’re going to end once your holiday has finished and you’ll probably never see the person ever again. But they’re sweet because you come away with some amazing memories and you find that it makes your whole holiday so much better.

What Kind Of Holiday Romance Am I Talking About?

This whole post is going to be about the old fashioned type of holiday romance the one which is kind of rare these days. Usually when people go on holiday these days they only want one thing I’m not saying everyone wants it but the majority do!! I’m talking about holiday romance where you get to know someone over the period of your holiday on a deeper level. The same kind of level if you were to date your best friend I guess one where you don’t necessarily have to be intimate to become close. I don’t mean you can’t kiss each other etc.. because that kind of romance is cute and any girl would love that because it’s the type of romance that you see in the movies. 

The Good:

Holiday romances can be amazing you can come away having an amazing connection with someone who lives far away and ending up being good friends for the rest of your life or you can come away with a life partner. Although this only usually happens to older people who are looking to settle down. I honestly think that if you have a holiday romance it makes the whole holiday so special and you will cherish those memories for the rest of your life. If you do have a holiday romance like the ones in the movies then that’s very rare but so special! So keep it as a memory somewhere whether you write it down in a letter to yourself or if you have a good memory just keep it to yourself. 

The Bad:

The horrible thing about holiday romances is that every one knows that they’re most likely going to come to an end. I personally think that this is worse when real feelings are involved. Most people just like to have a holiday fling on holiday where they meet someone kiss them and then go home. But if you find someone you really get on well with and you have a proper holiday romance saying bye to them is one of the hardest things you will experience. Also the reality of holiday romances or even making close friends on holiday is that you will probably never see them again unless you live close to them. 

My Recent Holiday Romance:

So as you all know I recently went on holiday and yes I did have a holiday romance. I’d like to say it was like one out of a movie because it was just so unusual but lovely. It wasn’t one of those romances where both of you wanted things then you ended it…it was a proper holiday romance we spent time together having a drink together and just talking, getting to know each other and taking the mickey out of each others accent. 

This particular holiday romance was different to other holiday romances because I clicked with him straight away. I was surprised he went for me because there were so many other pretty girls with lovely personalities and then there was me who I see as an average teenage girl really. He’s also really good looking and such a gentlemen so I was rather quite lucky. 

If I’m completely honest saying bye was one of the hardest things I’ve done because I just felt so empty after. I knew I wouldn’t probably ever see him again because he doesn’t even live in the same country as me!! I really hope I do see him again in the future as we got on so well we’ve stayed in contact and I hope he’s in my life for a while because he’s defiantly a keeper and any girl who has him as a boyfriend is very lucky and should look after him as I know he will look after them. 

Is it worth it?

Overall holiday romances are defiantly worth it because it gives you that happiness which will make your holiday 10x better well I think it does anyways. I also think that it’s worth it because once your holiday ends you can be left with a really special relationship with someone which could last ages. If you meet up with them later on in the future something may happen which is always a bonus. 

On the other hand if you have a holiday romance and it ends badly then you’ve come away with a lesson which is always good too. Lessons help you to become a better person and helps you to not make the mistake again therefore you could be much closer to your prince charming than you think.
