Summer is the time for sun and fun. Of course, everyone knows it’s that much better when you have a summer love. If you’re heading to the beach single but wishing you had a special someone, it’s not too late. You can still find someone to make memories together. Here are some helpful tips on how to find a summer love stronger than Danny and Sandy.
1. Enjoy Your Summer
Get outside and enjoy yourself. While you’re out and about, you may start to notice all of the eligible bachelors in your area. They may even have the same interests as you. Don’t necessarily go into your day thinking about finding a significant other. Just go into your day, hoping to have fun. It’s also quite attractive if you’re confident enough to go out and do things by yourself, so don’t be shy.
2. Pretty Yourself Up
Every woman is beautiful, but that doesn’t mean a little mascara can’t make a beautiful woman just a little more beautiful. If you want to catch a partner, dressing up can also make it clear that you’re looking. Put on some makeup and even get your nails done. Wear a pretty summer dress while you’re at it.
3. Be Clear
Determine what you want. It’s ok to want a fling, and it’s also ok to want something more substantial. Whatever you want, make sure you know what it is so you can make the right decisions to find it.
When talking to a potential partner, you need to be clear about your intentions. The conversation could determine whether or not you want to move forward with the person. It could also prevent someone from getting hurt.
While having this conversation with a potential mate, be careful to listen to what they say. If they continually tell you they aren’t ready for a relationship, you should believe them. Don’t waste your time thinking you can get someone to change their mind.
4. Listen to others
A lot of people instinctively talk about themselves. It is true for people who get anxious around a potential lover. You may tell to fill any awkward voids. Try asking a lot of questions instead of talking about yourself. Most people like when someone shows an interest in them.
Use open-ended questions that require a complete answer than yes or no. You will hopefully get the other person talking, providing even more opportunities for conversation. It’s also attractive when a significant other is a great listener, so demonstrate this right away. Someone might end up talking to you all summer.
5. Try Online Dating
Look, online dating has a stigma to it. However, if times are getting a little more desperate, it might be time to try it. Some of us need that extra push, and online dating does just that. For people who can’t seem to find anyone, online dating gives you access to thousands of people in your area.
If you are picky, you can filter the results to find exactly what you’re looking for. You can even vet them before you go on a date. It’s the perfect solution for people who are busy and don’t have time to go on a bunch of dates.
6. See Each Other in Person
Even if you meet someone online, you don’t have to keep the romance confined to your smartphone. Once you’ve done your due diligence to ensure that your love isn’t a serial killer, move the relationship to the next step by insisting on seeing each other in person. Many people prefer digital communication, but it doesn’t leave as much of an impression as talking face to face.
7. Stay Positive
It can be easy to become jaded, but try to keep a positive attitude during your search. When you believe that you are made to find love eventually, the outcome of dates will be much better. When you are positive, the people around you (including potential lovers) will feel more positive, too. It can make you appear more attractive. You will get more opportunities, and even failed dates will just be opportunities to learn and grow.
8. Have Standards
Just because you want a partner, doesn’t mean you need to take any partner. Make sure you keep the same standards you always did to avoid dating someone who would not be good for you. Don’t let desperation make decisions that you will regret later in life.
