1. When they’re too needy
Does your travel partner need to spend every waking moment with you? Do they freak out if you want some alone time? Do they hover over your shoulder as you write in your journal?
I traveled with a girl named Janice through Europe. Despite the fact she was 26, she couldn’t manage simple life tasks on her own. One night I felt like reading, so I went outside to the patio with my book. Not more than 15 minutes later Janice came storming out, angrily shouting at me that I had left her alone and went outside without telling her.
If you have drastically different ideas of what it means to spend time together on a trip, it may be time to bail.
