‘Love Notes by Chi’ is BrownStyle Magazine‘s new column—curated by professional matchmaker Chi Love— that brings you insightful tips, trendy discussions, and answers your biggest questions about love, dating, and relationships.

Summertime provides countless opportunities to step outside your comfort zone and try something new—whether it is a new experience or a new hobby. It also provides a sizzling-hot opportunity to get outdoors and build a connection with someone you’re interested in getting to know.

Are they a “Summer Fling” or the real thing? You’ll never know if you don’t seize the moment. Below, read my friendly suggestions for staying cool and keeping an open mind while dating this Summer. 

Revamp your Summer wardrobe. 

Having a wardrobe that you love can help you look and feel confident! It also ensures you have no excuses when it comes to making plans with someone special. 

When upgrading your closet for the Summer, find items that make you FEEL sexy. From outfits that hug you in all the right places to colors that compliment your skin, carefully select pieces that make you feel good. 

Be honest with yourself, and others.

Are you looking for a long-term relationship or are you looking for a Summer fling? The decision is yours. However, it’s your responsibility to be honest with yourself (and others).

When building a connection with someone this Summer, be transparent about what you are looking for in a relationship— even if it is no relationship at all. Be clear about your intentions and allow the other party to make their choice. As a professional matchmaker, I tell my clients it is always better to be honest than to string someone along. 

Be open-minded and get outdoors.

The Sun is scientifically proven to boost your mood, so get outdoors and allow it to do its thing! This Summer, I challenge you to be open-minded by dining under the stars, attending outdoor soirees, and trying fun activities that allow you and your date to mix and mingle outdoors. It is not only a great way to enjoy each other’s company, but also allows you the opportunity to enjoy the beauty of the season.  

Live in the moments. 

There’s no point in dating if you can’t have fun with the person you’re with. This Summer, I challenge you to be open-minded and tap into your playful spirit. Whether that’s dancing until your feet ache or playing a flirty game that leads to a steamy kiss, don’t be afraid to live in the moment and have a good time.  

Hopefully, these tips help you on your romantic journey!
