How do you explain trips away?

Just thinking about how people explain that they are going on these trips?  Do you normally travel for business and don't your spouses usually go with you?  How do you come back and say how the trip went and how do you continue to pay for these trips without any repercussions?  Just curious..I don't travel much with my job but may want to if things with the new weekend in Vegas guy work out that way...I wish I could just put him out of my head...and it would have been so much easier if we didn't spend so much time together and exchange numbers!!

It's difficult to explain things away unless it's a part of your regular routine.  Otherwise, it's high time for D-Day and the repurcussions thereof.

He made it clear to you what you stand for. That should be reason enough to call it quits, I think.

There are many people who regularly travel for business, or leave for a guys getaway or girls getaway. Then there are conferences for different professions. For example, there may be a conference for psychologists or teachers, etc.

Any of those types of conferences could be used as a reason to be out of town. The expense is another story. Is he going to help with travel expenses? Is he trying to make plans for something anytime soon? I fear that you are more into him than he is into you. I also fear that  you may end up with extra travel expenses and get your feelings hurt. I hope I am wrong.

I've been lucky and have explained my trips with girl's weekends.  I've been online friends with a bunch of women from all over the country for years.  I tell my H that one of their husbands wins these trips and tells his wife to take her friends and the expenses are covered.  My AP is wealthy and pays for all my expenses so it's just a matter of me getting off from work.  He's taken me on a couple of nice trips and we have another one planned in a couple of months.  Not too bad for meeting on AM!  lol

I don't travel on business or anything, so I don't get to go on any trips with AP.  Although, I would loooooooove to take a vacation with him.
