Just because Summer’s ending doesn’t mean your Summer relationship has to!
Here’s some advice on how to turn that “fling” into something more from Divine Caroline:
Communicate: You need to get on the same page about what you both want. If you started off as just a fling, there’s a very good chance that that’s all it will be. But you’ll never know unless you ASK.
Manage Your Expectations: You should be prepared for them to not feel the same way. Keep your expectations in check, and don’t be too disappointed if they’re not feeling it.
Change Things Up: If you’ve been spending most of your time just hooking up, you’re going to need to change things up. Go out, see a movie, have dinner, do things that get you talking and learning more about each other.
Be Willing to Work at It: Transitioning from a casual hookup to an actual relationship is tough but not impossible. ALL relationships take work and there WILL be bumps along the way.
