How To Have A Successful Summer Fling
The f**ck boy ruined the summer fling for me, and as a result, I gave up on them several years ago. They never ended up being The Notebook or Grease — just wasted months going on faux dates with some dude who half-heartedly liked me and always kept his phone on silent.
During the rise of the f**ck boy, I also gave up on other short-sighted relations, such as friends with benefits, work flings and club makeouts. Dating lost its luster and became a warped chess game, in which both parties only seemed to be chipping away at one another’s defenses, frantic for checkmate in three moves or less.
It wasn’t until last summer that I realized the problem was just as much with them as it was with me. I was doing far too much hoping and far too little calculating and assessing. So, after recently selecting and executing an incredibly successful autumn-cuddle-buddy (who I may even keep around for summer!), I now feel equipped to offer you expert advice on how to have a successful, movie-worthy, summer fling.
