Group Therapy: My Boyfriend Wants to Go on Vacation Without

"My Boyfriend Wants to Go on Vacation Without Me"

This question is from a Group Therapy post in our community. Add your advice in the comments!

My boyfriend's friend asked him to go on a deep-sea fishing trip near Key West. Apparently, his friend makes really good money and offered to pay for my boyfriend and a few other of their friends for the trip. I don't see anything wrong with me going along if I pay for myself. I can take a vacation with my boyfriend, and he can still get his quality fishing time with the boys while I'm off shopping or doing something girly for myself.

I've never liked the idea of separate vacations. I just can't help but feel offended, as I would never go away somewhere unless I could bring my boyfriend. However, I'm in a bind, because I don't want to ask him not to go. I just wish I could come along! I am also worried that maybe he would cheat. I can't help it. I trust him, but I don't trust his friends, and Key West is a big party place. I would feel this way regardless of who I was with; this is just the way I am and I can't help but think about it.

What does everyone think of separate vacations within a couple? Could his intentions be harmless?
