My SO wants to go to a water park with just me. He thinks it would be a great romantic get-away and that we would have fun. Here is the problem. I do not like amusement parks of any sort and I do not like water. I went to this water park in the past with my ex when we were together and took our kids as well. The kids and him had a great time. I tried my best but did not enjoy it. I also do not own a swimming suit as I outgrew mine and detest how I look in them. Further, I know that he took his ex to this water park. Every time he brings up going, he mentions the time he took her. I KNOW he doesn't want to be with her. But if just mentioning it brings back memories, what's gonna happen when we are actually there?
Don't get me wrong, a weekend away with just him would be great. Just not at that water park or any amusement park. I'm 34, not 14. I don't want to hurt his feelings and don't want to cause a fight between him and I. How do I tell him that going to this water park would not be enjoyable for me?

Tell him the pungent chlorine smell & screaming kids gives you a headache. Wouldn't be much of a romantic get away if you have a headache. KWIM? Then suggest some other places. A secluded cabin. A honeymoon suite at a nice hotel. Or whatever else floats your boat. GL

Does he know you do not like water and/or amusement parks? I would just tell him. I want to go somewhere, but not their.
