“This just can’t be summer love”…But, is it?
Sure the summer love flings are all the heat at the moment with summer around the corner. But before you get all hot and bothered, here are a few things to consider before really diving in head first:
Be truthful with yourself
It is super easy to get carried away by the magical feeling of summer love. Sometimes love can trickle into the Fall or even an LTR. An Instagram follower replied to whether or not they had a summer fling:
If you know deep inside that you do not want it to turn into anything more, then it is important to really step back. Ask yourself, is this what I truly want or am I being carried away with a false sense of reality.
No I am not here to scold you like a parent but when I asked my IG followers if they had a summer fling I got this message:
Nothing wrong with having a little fun in the sun. It can be easy to be swept away by the heat but know that if it is temporary make sure to be safe and careful.
Be honest about your intentions
Nothing worse than leading someone on to think that it’s going further than summer love. No this does not mean you need to mention this right up front. Keep in mind that if things seem to start getting serious you should let the other person know you are not interested in anything other than some fun.
Summer is fun! The weather is warm and the sun is out n’ about. Be present and live life to the fullest in the summer heat while creating some awesome memories. Sometimes summer nostalgia is worth reflecting on for some positive vibes.
One of my IG followers shared this one with me from back in the day:
So don’t forget to make memories and have fun!
