Did you know that August is Romance Awareness Month? That means it’s time to make the most of summer’s last days and enjoy a beach romance before fall sets in. Consider the top-ten ways to meet available mates and have a sexy summer relationship:
Join a Beach Volleyball Team
Whether you are into sports or you don’t know a spike from a serve, joining an intramural team can help you make the most of the last days of summer all while helping you meet new people. The more connections you make and the more you put yourself out there, the more likely it is that you will meet someone right for you. Just don’t forget the SPF!
Host a Barbecue
Nothing says summer quite like grilling on a sunny day. However, if you want to meet someone new, you’ll have to expand your guest list beyond your basic cast of characters. Ask your friends to invite any available guys they know, or invite people you would like to get to know better…whether it’s your cute neighbor or the sexy guy from your gym.
If you want to have a sexy summer romance, look no further than the volunteer organizations in your community. Whether it’s walking dogs at a local shelter or participating in a 5K for a good cause, you will expand your horizons and meet tons of new people…all while doing good!
Book a Last-Minute Vacation
If you have spent most of your summer locked away in your cubicle, it’s time to break out of your rut before it’s too late. Ask a group of girlfriends to rent a lake cabin with you, or find online deals for resorts in warm locales like Mexico. By surfing online often and keeping your eyes peeled for good deals, you can afford a vacation that can offer plenty of opportunities to meet sexy singles.
Dedicate Yourself to a Workout Routine
Once summer fades, people often begin to neglect their healthy lifestyle habits. Instead, they nest at home on the couch with potato chips and reality TV. By hibernating, though, you will not only miss out on exercise, but you’ll also miss out on the chance to meet new people and feel confident in your own skin. Stay committed to your workout routine by getting into a groove while it’s still warm—ask your girlfriends to join your workout program with you, or find an exercise class in your area that you love.
Try Something New
If you want to meet someone new, you’ll have to get out of your rut and try new things. Even small, simple changes can expand your world. Take a different route to work in the morning, or go to a new coffee shop in the morning. When hanging out with your girlfriends, try experimenting with new bars or different cuisines—for example, if you usually go to wine bars, do something novel by trying a place that is known for its craft beers.
Invest in Your Summer Style All Year Long
Something about summer just makes you feel sexy: From lightweight sundresses to island scents to the neon nail polish on your toes, you just feel more sensual and in touch with your body. Keep this feel-good sensuality all year long by getting a spray tan or wearing a coconut-inspired scent even in winter—it will remind you of the summer sun long after your tan lines have faded. And make the most of summer’s final weeks by unleashing your inner vixen while it’s still warm out. Rock your lightest, brightest sundresses every chance you get, and try out a daring pair of wedges to show off your pedicure. You will definitely turn heads!
There is something very summery and luxurious about eating outside on a rooftop patio. Find a popular restaurant in your neighborhood that offers outdoor or rooftop dining, and enjoy the last warm summer days by having cocktails and appetizers outdoors as the sun sets.
Tap Into Your Inner Sports Fan
Nothing says summer like baseball…and most baseball games are havens for available and outgoing guys looking for a good time. Gather up your girlfriends and your cutest sports tee, and sit in the bleachers for an affordable and fun time.
Go to an Outdoor Concert
Whether you are into rock or bluegrass, summer offers plenty of outdoor concerts. These concerts give you many opportunities to meet new people; not to mention, they are a great way to make the most of the end of summer. Check out music venues in your area for concert deals — and then get ready to rock out!
