Summer brings warm weather, sunshine, and a sense of happiness and nostalgia. It’s a great time of year, but why is it the best season for dating? Well, for one thing, there is an endless amount of fun summer date ideas, and the dating scene is typically more laid back and casual. Everyone has heard of a summer fling, haven’t they? The heat and sun exposure can draw you into a relaxed and casual mood.

The beautiful weather provides us with more options for summer dates and fun activities that ignite our adventurous and spontaneous spirit! When it’s hot outside, we feel hot, in every way, but that’s not all. Here are the top 5 reasons why summer is the best season for dating:

1. We are prettier, happier, and more active.

When the weather is brighter, it’s easier to look on the bright side of life, especially when we spend more time outside under the warm rays of sunshine. People seem to be more active during the warm days, excited to get outside and walk, run or play games under the summer sun. 

It makes sense that active people are happier people and happier people are prettier people. Everyone looks better when they are in a good mood, which makes dating so much easier.

2. There are more options for cute dates, and they are cheaper.

Do you want to go kayaking? Swimming? Play volleyball on the beach? Do you want to have a romantic picnic watching the sunset? Walk around in nature holding hands? Cute cheap date ideas for summer are endless, and warm days bring countless possibilities for a good time. Everything seems to be more alive during the summer, and it means that there are plenty of things to do, many of which won’t even cost you a dime. People are generally more eager to go outside and do things when it’s warm out, and this makes it easier to date.

 Now you can turn a basic walk around the local park into a romantic stroll. You can bike around town together and make it a memorable date. With more options for things to do, you’re more likely to have a better date. People are more in the mood to make plans, so it makes sense why you get asked out more often during summer! Dates also tend to be more intimate since it’s too hot for clothes!

3. We are more relaxed, adventurous, and spontaneous.

There’s this sense of spontaneity during the summer, that brings the feeling that anything can happen. This feeling encourages us to be more daring and open to new experiences and exciting adventures. Whether it’s conquering a fear, stepping outside of your comfort zone, or just meeting new people, everyone is more open and fearless when the sun is shining outside. We are more relaxed, so we’re willing to consider parachuting, bungee jumping, or whatever crazy thing we get the opportunity to do. This might also explain why summer flings exist.

Since we are more relaxed, adventurous, and spontaneous in general during the summer, we have a more casual attitude toward dating. It’s easy to fall in love and risk having your heart broken when you’re on a warm holiday enjoying your youth and your freedom. Maybe you meet someone on a hot day at the beach, love-struck by their wet body on the warm sand, and start up a fiery, passionate, unforgettable romance… Or at least that’s what the best romantic books and movies teach us about summer loving!

4. There are more opportunities to meet new people and have fun.

With more options for outdoor activities and things to do, brings more opportunities to meet interesting new people. Just think of all those parties by the pool, outdoor barbeques, beach bonfires, or wherever your mind takes you when you think of summer fun and meeting new people! We tend to be more flexible with our schedules, so we make time for fun activities with new friends.

There are endless hobbies that you can try in summer, and they offer a great opportunity to find new friends with similar interests. People seem to be more open to online dating in the summer too, possibly because they are in a more relaxed, outgoing mood and are interested in finding someone they could enjoy the beautiful weather with.

5. We look and feel hot like the summer.

Summer is hot, and it makes people look and feel hot too! After all, just look at the clothes, they provide the perfect chance to show some skin and put yourself out there. You can finally ditch the sweaters and bulky coats and throw on a flattering summer dress or denim shorts. 

Both women and men show off their bodies during summer, and it makes us notice our potential partners easier. It’s hard not to be struck by someone’s positivity and confidence as they strut around in their favorite outfit with the sun shining down on them. Summer seems to bring out the best in people and bring them closer together, so it’s the best season to fall in love and start a romantic love story with someone new!

What are your plans for the summer season? If you are single, this is your opportunity to find love, but be careful not to get your heart broken if it turns out that it’s just a summer fling! If you are in a relationship, explore new and fun date ideas and use these sunny days to show off your sexy summer style – whatever that means to you! As long as you bring your good mood and bright attitude, you’re sure to have a hot date night.  

Summer is a great time to start a relationship, so get out there and find the person you’re supposed to spend the rest of your life (or at least the season) with and have fun!
