Five Rules for Creating a Non-Awkward Couple’s Vacation Album

Don’t get me wrong, you went on vacation with your boyfriend and you deserve to document this! This allows you to tell the world two things: you go on vacations and you have a boyfriend. But I think it’s about time that we find a way to put up photos that don’t make everyone else cringe. And since I’ve just returned from vacation in Turks and Caicos with my boyfriend, I’ve taken it upon myself to lead the way.

4. Don't Document Fancy Dinners.

Everyone already assumes that when you're on a beautiful island in the Caribbean, you're eating lobster pasta at a romantic beachside table, probably to the tunes of some singing couple who's lived on the island for 20 years and does festive covers of Eric Clapton songs. Put the camera down. Pick it up again when you go to a restaurant called "Da Conch Shack". The food is cheap, fried, and delicious, and taking pictures of that meal proves you’re low-maintenance. Extra points for making a disgusted face next to all the fried food you're about to eat. This shows that you're self-aware.
