Who doesn’t look forward to the summer vacation? It’s the perfect opportunity to get away from our mundane day-to-day routines and work-related stress and completely relax and unwind. Summer vacations are also the perfect time to meet some new people and maybe even start a new relationship. Not that this is not possible in everyday life. It’s just that vacations allow us to focus on ourselves and our love lives more than we usually do.
The question is: how do you actually meet guys while on vacation? And, more importantly, where do you meet them? Below, a couple of tips and tricks for meeting guys on vacation when you are single and ready to mingle.
Planning day-to-day activities is key to ensuring a great vacation. Naturally, you’ll pick activities that you personally enjoy, and these activities can be something you can meet guys through. Enjoy expanding your musical horizons or dream of dating a musician? Find out if there are any local concerts or festivals before visiting your destination. Love discovering new food? Head to some interesting restaurants. Love the great outdoors? Go out in nature and explore!
Bonding with someone over activities you both enjoy is a great way to break the ice and get to know them better. On the plus side, you’ll always have something to do and talk about, so you don’t have to worry about running out of things to do or say.
Sports, especially those played in groups, are perfect for meeting new guys. Depending on which US summer destination you’re vacationing in, you’ll find numerous opportunities to engage in sports activities, whether we’re talking about rafting on the Colorado River, practicing on Arizona’s Ocotillo golf course or playing volleyball or football on Virginia Beach.
Getting in the game can be as simple as asking to join. Not only does engaging in sports activities give you the perfect excuse to talk to someone you like, but it also shows the other person that you’re a fun-loving girl, which is sure to get things rolling and encourage him to take the next step.
Bars are particularly convenient places for meeting guys. You get to enjoy some awesome drinks and good music while mingling with people and engaging in casual conversations. Wineries, breweries, and whiskey bars are also great places if you’re looking to share a drink or two and meet some cute guys.
Remember to keep in mind your music taste when selecting a place. Also, pay attention to the people in there to make sure there’s someone you can talk to. One thing women should know about men is that they’re more open to hookups when on vacation, so if you’re in the mood for something casual, bars are a great option.
Exploring new food is a great way to widen your horizons when vacationing, but it is also perfect for getting to know new people. Whether you are hanging out in a secret supper club or staying at a hostel and enjoying the hostel kitchen delicacies, sharing food with others is a great way to meet new people and connect with them.
Depending on what you’re into, you can find various foodie events that will help you connect with both locals and tourists, whether we’re talking about pasta making classes or wine tours. They’ll ensure a unique experience you’ll remember long after your summer vacation ends.
Depending on where you’re spending your vacation, there will be different spots where most people will be hanging out. If you’re in a place where there are plenty of beaches, head to the nearest one. The beach is the place where you’re guaranteed to meet guys since everyone likes to have some fun in the sand.
Make sure to keep an open mind and be welcoming to new things and experiences. Who knows? It may surprise you to find out what and who you’re attracted to and it may turn out to be one of the most adventurous travel experiences. Give everyone and everything a chance, and let’s see what happens, okay?
Meeting someone great while traveling can make any vacation seem ten times better. Sometimes, it’ll be just a simple summertime romance after which you’ll both get back to your everyday lives and routines. Other times, it’ll lead to a long-term relationship. This uncertainty is what makes summertime vacations so exciting. So, get out there and make the most of your vacation! Don’t think too much about it, and have fun while you’re at it!
