Mila Kunis and Ashton Kutcher found themselves in Rome this Thanksgiving, reports. The two recent lovers, also former co-stars of That ‘70s Show, have been staying in the Italian capital as Kunis films The Third Man Orson Welles remake with Liam Neeson and James Franco. This didn’t stop them from taking a night out on the town for an intimate meal at Chechino, Friday. And besides their romantic stroll to take in the sights last week, the two enjoyed a three-course feast with the film’s director, Paul Haggis.

How do you know when it’s time to go on vacation with a new beau?

Cupid’s Advice:

Everyone fantasizes about a lavish and exotic vacation with a date, but be cautious not to elope without your partner’s full commitment. Follow these tips to see if you two are ready for a romantic vacation:

1. Familiarity: You can plan much of your vacation ahead of time, such as scheduled activities, and where you’re going to stay. However, a lot can change when you get there, and any type of travel involves a certain degree of spontaneity. It is very important that you know your partner well enough to make decisions you’ll both enjoy. Besides knowing your date’s threshold for excitement, being familiar with their interests lets you find adventures better suited for your relationship. Being able to rely and trust your partner is also crucial as you need those qualities in a travelling companion.

2. Comfort: Going on vacation means spending time together constantly, so make sure your relationship is prepared for that. If there’s always a day’s space between seeing each, you have to wonder what non-stop dating is like with your partner. If you’re just getting to know each, make sure you two won’t be too nervous to fully enjoy yourselves.

3. Excitement: Before you start booking resorts, make sure your partner not only agreed on the vacation, but that they’re excited about it. You don’t want your date to go into this half-heartedly. There’s lots of preperations, and you shouldn’t have to do them alone. A couple’s getaway won’t be romantic if one of you leaves your heart at home.
