Whether you’re single or attached, summer can be the best time of the year!
To get you prepared for the summer fun, a Summer Dating Bucket List!
IN A COMMITTED RELATIONSHIP: TAKE AN EPIC VACATION
Pick a location where there is a balance of activities and relaxation. All too often, we get so excited about going somewhere new that there is a temptation to pack every minute of the day with activities, but some of the very best moments in a romantic getaway are just being together and really existing in the moment.
SINGLE & READY TO MINGLE: AN OUTDOORSY BLIND DATE
Dating can be a ton of fun (even if it doesn’t always feel that way), so take advantage of the warm weather by mixing it up and getting out of the coffee shops and bars with something a little more summery, like an date at the beach or in a provincial park. To add some adventure, have your friends and family set you up on a blind date.
SINGLE & LOVING IT: GIRLS WEEKEND
If at moment romance is just not on your radar, “date” your friends instead with an epic girls’ weekend. Plan a road trip or book a mini-vacation in a local hotel suite. Don’t forget about the many local festivals to hit up with your pals, too!
IT’S COMPLICATED: AN ADVENTURE DATE WITH YOUR “SITUATIONSHIP”
Is your relationship status a little less clearly defined? In that case why not add a little more thrill to your situationship with an adventure date…rock climbing, river rafting, hiking, or an escape room. Anything that gets the blood pumping and encourages you to work together. It’s both a ton a fun and may even give you the opportunity to connect in a new way that will give you insight into where you want to see the relationship evolve to.
NEWLY SINGLE: TAKE YOURSELF ON A ROMANTIC DATE
If you’re newly single, the idea of trying to date again may sound like torture, but who said dating had to include someone else? For your dating bucket list this summer, pledge to make this season all about self love and taking yourself on date nights. To the movies, out to dinner to try that restaurant they never were willing to give a shot, or even go away by yourself on a mini-vacay somewhere beautiful and relaxing where you can reconnect with yourself.
