Summer flings come and go. You might never have one in your life, but if you do, here are a few things to keep in mind before you give in to the summer breeze of love.
We all want a summer romance, the feeling where this moment can’t get any better or that crushing trulymadlydeeply has never felt this good. But get this, did it ever occur to your love-bugged mind that this fling of yours could be a true stalker, sex addict or a 55-year-old man pretending to be your age (cause he’s an in-denial pedophile)? Whatever, right? But there are too many cases of missing people after a date of blissful beginnings that you just have to keep guard.
Don’t fall too fast or you might fall into a trap you just can’t get out of. Yes, nothing is too good to be true.
Tip #1: Say your name but NOT your whole being. Do not give all too personal information that will put you doomed if he really was a stalker. He might have hawked you down and just pretended to meet you accidentally in lover’s paradise.
Tip #2: If he seems like all he wants for you guys is to go intimate. Well honey, it’s easy to decode – he wants you in bed – and that’s it. Sex addict alert! Hate to break it to you; love is always misinterpreted as lust. Don’t look like a damsel in distress eager to fall fast in love, because 1. Fairytales seldom exist and 2. If he’s pleasing you too much, it’s because he can’t wait for you to give in to his fantasy of exploiting women to give him a much needed ego boost.
Tip #3: Be wary of wrinkles and white hair. If he says he’s just your age (considering you’re 13-19) and seems like he’s such a big fat liar, more often that not, he really is what his physical characteristics suggest him to be. Sadly, there are no Benjamin Button’s in the world – so don’t get your hopes high. He is most likely, a pedophile eager to date someone three to four decades younger than him. My advice: stay away, stay FAR FAR FAR away. Just imagine: summer flings are supposed to sweep you of your feet… not to gross you till you gag.
This may sound all too humorous and almost impossible to happen to you. And yeah, not all summer flings go down this tragic – but it pays to be wary, it pays to be cautious and smart with people you mingle with. People who live in 21st century seem to be more jaded, screwed, and complicated to please. Don’t be a victim – we want to fall in love not be robbed of our sanity.
