Travelling without boyfriend
September 17, 2013 7:38 PM Subscribe
I want to travel but my boyfriend is always in an uncertain position with his job. I am sick of waiting for him so I might (again) travel without him, alone or with friends. But I feel kind of bad for not waiting for him.

Ok so, until 3 years ago, I was working full time + studying part time so I barely had time to take vacations. After I finished school, I started to want to travel as much as I can. In the first year, I asked my bf if he wanted to come with me on vacation but I told him "If you don't come, I am going anyway". He finally didn't come, saying it was because of his crazy boss.
The year after, he didn't have the same boss but he couldn't plan vacations. One of my friend proposed to me to go on vacation together so I said yes because my bf could not confirm when we could take vacations. So I went without him again. He didn't have the same boss but nothing changed.
Now I have to take 3 more weeks of vacations and we will take 2 together. But I want to go by myself for 1 week. He always seems to be upset with that. That I am not patient, that I am not waiting for him...
Everytime I try to plan vacations, he says, well I don't know, I want to change job. But he's not intensively looking.
I kind of feel bad to go on vacation anyway but at the same time, I feel like if I wait for him, I miss a nice part of my life. I am yound, I have enough money, we never know what can happen. I may not be able to travel next year, we never know what can happen.
I need some advice on how to handle this situation.
