Summer flings are fantastic when the temperatures climb. Who says your fling has to end when the season does, though? Here are five ways to turn your summer romance into a long lasting relationship.
Plan a Getaway
Summer romances can feel like vacations all on their own, but to find out if your love is here to stay, try taking it out of context. Plan a weekend getaway together, so you can truly spend time alone and get to know each other one-on-one. A few days together will tell you much more about your relationship potential than a few hours here and there ever could. When you see each other somewhere new and in a different light, you can start thinking about how you’d like to keep seeing one another in the future.
Introduce Him to Your Friends
If he hasn’t met your friends yet, he’s definitely just a summer fling. Once you introduce him to your closest confidantes, though, he becomes much more. He’s no longer someone to have fun with when the weather’s hot. He’s someone both you and your friends consider to be a meaningful part of your life. Before planning the big reveal for your friends, consider a love tarot card reading to make sure the timing is right.
Talk About How You Feel
The easiest way to make sure your summer fun ends when the sun goes down is simply not to talk about the future of your relationship. If you want to make it last, though, find a good time to sit down and talk without distractions. You might get rejected, but there’s no chance she’ll say yes if you never ask. As long as both of you are still feeling it, there’s no reason the two of you can’t stay together long past the end of August.
Keep Up the Excitement Level
Summer is the season for fun, but that can quickly fade away once cooler temperatures settle in and reality hits. One way to meet this potential problem head on is to find a way to keep the fun flowing and the excitement level up. Show her how much you desire her physically and romantically with small yet constant reminders of how much she matters to you.
Start Thinking Long-Term
Since summer flings often mean minimal commitment, you probably didn’t have any expectations about how long your relationship would last in the beginning. When the two of you truly click and a real relationship starts to develop, though, it’s time to start thinking long-term. Be sure to take it one step at a time, but don’t wait too long to consider how he’ll fit into your life, how she can support your big goals, and whether he should meet your family. Don’t be afraid to tackle these issues as a couple, to make sure you’re on the same page.
