How a trekking date helps know your partner more


Most couples who are married/planning to get married waste an enormous amount of time dating each other over expensive cups of beverages in the hope that they will get to know each other.

We have some bad news for you. You won't! In an artificial setting like a restaurant, park or a coffee shop, you only talk. Yet, we spend most of the time doing things like making breakfast, going to the office, meeting for dinners etc. In doing all this which are way too ordinary, we display our love, respect and consideration to each other. It cements the bond and makes a relationship grow stronger.

A trek date in Yercaud can be an excellent way to check if your partner has the qualities to make a marriage work. On a long trek, preferably over 5 to 6 days the mask of the city quickly wears off and the real person will surface. It makes sense to keenly observe the real person.

1) Grumpy or grateful! A trek required discipline in the schedule, preparation as well as routine. So does life. Is your partner capable of sticking to the discipline in the trek? Does he/she complain? A Himalayan trek may not be that easy but a trek amidst Coffee plantations in Yercaud may be easier. Is your partner finding fault with all the things-difficulty of the terrain, quality of food, the condition of the tent used etc? Your partner is a whiner and if you have a complaining partner, your life is going to be similar too.

2) Going the extra mile: Does your partner co-operate? Like a trek, your life may be in a series of co-operation at home and at work. If your partner co-operated with most situations, it speaks of a healthy mind and heart. Check if your partner volunteers for co-operative activities that do not directly benefit themselves like arranging the tent, packing the sleeping bags, getting others tea etc. The more co-operative the partner is, safe in the future.

3) When life gives you lemons: Does your partner actually make out the best of situations? On a trek in Yercaud, there may be times where things may go out of control. What does your partner do in such situations? Get angry, show frustration or complain rather than making the best of the situation? You need a life partner who can deal with situations bad/good in a cool and composed manner. A dose of humour as an added bonus.

4) Socializing for good: Does your partner mingle and mix? When at a camp does your partner spend time talking with others and learning from them? or does he/she sticks with you or prefers to be alone. All of us like to be left alone most of the time but mingling with others is a part of our social world. Partners who stick with us most of the time on a trek will be a pain later or are faking it.

5) Being self-sufficient: Does your partner ask people to get things like tea, warm water or dinner? It takes an effort to head over to the kitchen for these things and shows a human side of us who does not order people around. A partner who orders around may be a menace in the future.

I hope the above pointers may help you to choose a partner wisely and going on a trek date is the latest fad of seeing someone important in life. They are also becoming increasingly popular among urban youth. Compatibility in real life situations can be measured easily which modern coffee shops do not allow.
