🤿 5 Reasons to dive with your sentimental partner

One of the best parts of diving is sharing the experience with others. While most of us make friends through diving, some of us are fortunate to find a significant other who also loves diving.

Although two people share a love for diving and underwater sports, it is possible that they also have some differences that must be solved before diving together into the underwater world. If you have wondered, “Where can I find couples therapy near me?” you can contact BetterHelp to be able to make safer dives.

For those of you who believe your partner looks better in a wetsuit, here are five reasons why diving with your sentimental partner is so great.

1. Improves security for both of you.
When diving with your loved one, you know that they have their best interest at heart and they care about keeping them safe. They are also more likely to be familiar with each other’s abilities, comfort levels and needs, to have a successful and enjoyable dive. Confidence and familiarity between couples can be a perfect match both above and below the waves.

2. You strengthen teamwork.
Being a scuba, snorkel o freediving pair means working together, from planning a dive to your post-dive debriefs. Many couples even train together. As a team, you have to choose your next dive site, research new equipment, help others get ready, and more. If you are planning a weeklong dive vacation, the two can be brought closer together by excitement, preparation, and underwater lifestyle.

3. You travel and know new places together.
By immersing yourself as a couple, it pushes both to go out and have an adventure together. Diving together can be the push that many couples have to do on the vacations they have been talking about for years, to finally happen. And when the activity is shared, you can choose destinations based on the dive without leaving your partner out.

4. You understand each other better.
As a couple, you can develop your own style of saying much more to each other than the basic cues. Many couples are able to tell exactly what their partner is thinking and responding to by their body language, facial expressions, and hand signals. You start communicating with your own signs too, creating your own language for diving. After years of diving together, you become experts in understanding one another.

5. You have the opportunity to share your passion.
Seeing the shocked expression of your loved couple can be so amazing. Plus, sharing a passion for diving means you have someone to talk to about every incredible detail of your dives. Being able to reminisce about your underwater experiences for years to come is something special. Every time you see something amazing while diving, you know you can share that memory with your favorite person for years to come.
