There comes a point in every girl’s relationship when her boyfriend says those three little words she wasn’t quite expecting to hear: “I’m going camping.”  Even if your man has never set foot in the sticks, there will be something that urges him to take a long weekend with his guy friends and head to the country with a pair of boots and a trunk full of camping equipment.  Don’t take it personally. Men need their mountain time — their own space to be alone with their thoughts, eat shitloads of burnt veggie burgers, and get filthy. Consider this a blessing in bug spray-soaked disguise.

You’ll have alone time at last, and that’s a great thing for your relationship.
