I’m going on a trip for spring break with a bunch of my friends and my boyfriend of three months is staying at home. Do you think it would be wrong for me to break up with my boyfriend so I can have a really great spring break? Or do you think I should pull the “What happens in Cabo, stays in Cabo” thing? What’s your advice on my situation?

Honestly, if you break up with him now you’ll be so bored when you get back. Look at the positives of breaking up; well, there aren’t any, so there ya go.

You might remember a great show on MTV called “Laguna Beach.” Other than the obvious fact that this show is an amazing portrayal of what it would be like to not have to worry about finances or brain cells, I want you to realize they did know how to have fun. One person on the show stated before their spring break to Cabo, “What happens in Cabo, stays in Cabo.” Even though what they did in Cabo was being broadcast to the entire world, it was a great piece of advice.

I doubt you’ll be taking part in a reality show for your spring break, so you don’t have anything to worry about. Go, have fun and if something happens, forget about it. Yeah, people might think you’re slutty for cheating, but you only live once. Go and have some fun.

If you feel guilty about the fact you’ll most likely cheat on your boyfriend down there, then for sure tell him to beat it. I would try to explain to him you aren’t going to try and cheat, but if it happens he’ll have to deal with it.

Let’s assume you’re a mildly attractive girl. Someone down there will dig you and want to have some fun. It’s almost inevitable. Live your life, lady. You can’t let some guy hold you back.

I can barely say it’s cheating if you’re in another country. I believe in the idea if they’re in another state it doesn’t count. So really in my eyes and the eyes of many other educated people, it’s not really cheating at all.

Spring break is known for being a time when young people explore their wilder side. It’s a time that allows you to forget about school and other worries and just let loose (no pun intended). Staying committed to someone during these times can really test a person’s honorability as well as their relationship.

If you feel like being in a relationship would hinder your fun on spring break than you shouldn’t be in a relationship but not just for a week-I think you shouldn’t be in a relationship in general.

It seems right now the main focus in your life is on you. I’m not saying that as a bad thing, either. I think you just need to realize that doing what you want is outweighing doing what others would want you to do.

Let your partner know you really need some time to figure out what you want and what makes you happy. Finding yourself is what being young is all about. It’s better to find out what you want now, instead of several years down the road when you’re still with that person and feeling miserable.

As far as the ‘What happens in Cabo, stays in Cabo’-not a good choice. One way or another, it’s going to get back to him. Don’t be that person who emotionally scars someone and makes them question all other girls in their relationships to come.

I do believe once someone violates that sacred bond of trust, it can never be restored. So if you value this person at all, be honest, be fair and have a safe and wonderful spring break as a single girl on the prowl!
