The Season for Summer Lovin’

By Ncrimaldi @MsCareerGirl

Danny and Sandy were right. Summer loving is the best. The absolute best. With the toes exposed, the sweat down your back, and the hair in a ponytail, the opportunities for summer fun are endless. Something about the days being so long just makes me feel like the romantic opportunities are endless.

In the summer, dates don’t have to be just another drink or just another dinner. In the summer, the world is your playground. The sun stays out and so should you and your mate.

To spark the beginning of your AMAZING summer, here are some of my favorite summer dates:

Ice Cream Crawl: The next best thing to a beer crawl and this one is appropriate to do at all hours of the day.

the-wedding-planner-the-wedding-planner-726739_450_519Concerts / Movies in Parks: Almost every city has them and they are maybe the easiest, most romantic thing ever. And most likely free. Does anyone remember The Wedding Planner?? ROMANTIC. Or drive-ins. Drive-ins are good too.

Dining al fresco: Those cicadas won’t stop me! Dining outside is a favorite in the summer. Just sit, relax, pop a bottle of wine (or champagne! Let’s do brunch!) and people watch while the heat makes you stick to your seat.

Find your nearest fire hydrant and run in it: It’s hot. The hydrant is available. Who says it is just for little kids and dogs?!? And if your man doesn’t want to run through it with you… THAT IS INSANE- PULL HIM.

Bike Riding: It’s not the destination, it’s the journey remember? Especially if your journey consist of pit stops for Dunkin Donuts Iced Tea. And with inexpensive bike rentals popping up everywhere you turn, this one can be a really cheap date too.

The Notebook CanoeCanoeing: I mean, if you want to really ask your man some hard hitting questions, just trap him in a boat. This date would work on your teamwork and give you a new tanning location.

Fireworks: I mean, it’s the summer. Fireworks must be included! Just go buy some sparklers and take turns trying to get the shutter on your camera just right so you can capture it.

Go to a movie. Okay I know this is normal, but sometimes you need a break from that heat. It’s really hot! And truthfully, nothing says summer like those big, budget-busting, explosion movies.

bonnie___clyde_8Weekend getaways: Take advantage of your office’s summer Fridays and get the heck out of dodge! Try out a new city or even take a stay-cation in a local hotel. Groupon is GREAT for baby getaways.

Anything that doesn’t require shoes: Frolic in that field. Play that beach volleyball. Wade in that river.

Festivals & Fleas & Farmers Markets: Everyone comes out of hibernation in the summer including local businesses! Go wander amongst rows of beautiful crap that you shouldn’t buy cause you know you don’t have room in your apartment or go check out a random festival (one that hopefully includes inflatable jumping things).

BBQ-ing: Once you’ve bought your lovely products above, GRILL THEM. I think the smell of charcoal is an aphrodisiac.

gone-with-the-wind-sunsetSunsets: Any night, every day. This is a summer must and can be paired with all the other date suggestions listed. Sunrises also count if you have yourself a Really good adventurous evening.

Just writing this all down just gets me all giddy. I want to go run outside and just soak up that sun. And let’s be real, all of the above are AWESOME dates, but they can be just as fun with your ladies or your bros. CAUSE IT IS SUMMER PEOPLE! And that is what matters.

Here is to the most romantic summer yet!

Do you have an summer date idea? Let’s talk.

Happy Thursday y’all.
