A Summer Fling Or The Real Thing?
How can you tell if it’s a summer fling or a lasting romance?
Ah, summer… The nights are long, the rose is flowing, and everyone is much more relaxed than usual – all the perfect ingredients for a summer fling. You’ve been enjoying yourself all summer, as you should! However, now that it’s August, it’s time to reevaluate your fling. There are several factors you need to consider.
First of all, will you miss him? Do you want this thing to continue? If so, that counts for a lot. What signals is he giving you? Does he ever talk about the future? If he makes comments about how much he loves being single or how great it is to have a simple fling, it’s safe to say he will be moving on after labor day.
Is your relationship all steam and no substance? If you guys spend all your time in the bedroom, I think you’ve answered your own question!
Finally, would he fit into your regular, non-summer lifestyle? Would he get along with your friends and family? If he’s a great guy and you think there’s a future there, there’s no reason why a fling can’t become a real relationship. Trust your gut! You probably already know if he’s just a player or if he has boyfriend potential.
