Summer Lovin'

Oh yes, the summer is upon us. Many of my single girlfriends have declared they are taking time off to find Mr. Right and opting to have a summer fling. I say, you go girl, to any single gal who wants to have a good ‘ole time this summer. To pull off a successful summer fling there are a few things to keep in mind as you tap into your inner Aphrodite (the goddess of love and beauty).

Find suitable fling material – Sounds so simple, because anyone is fair game. Sometimes it is not as easy as it sounds. Don’t take the first guy who comes along. Be out and about as much as possible. Great locations to look for a potential fling partner are the beach, happening caf├ęs or lounges with roof tops. Remember to be completely upfront with the other person. Let them know you are not looking for anything serious at this time. It’s not okay to lie about your intentions.

Play it safe! - Always make sure you play safe. Carry your own protection if necessary. Sometimes people use the excuse that they get caught up in the moment and don’t worry about protection. Every choice has a consequence. So, girl if there is no glove, make sure there is no love!

It is what it is - Go with the flow and stay in the present. Don’t let things get to serious, after all a fling is about keeping things causal and fun. Know you limits when it comes to emotional and physical intimacy. If you are the type that gets “all pink”, end things sooner rather than later. The longer you wait the more complicated it will be.

Last but not least….have fun!

Until next time,

I'm actually figuring out my 'summer lovin'' situation. You gave me some things to think about, Shoshi. Not that I didn't already know, but sometimes it is good go ponder...
