Before Summer Wraps: 5 Ways to Bag a Fall Fling



So, in case you haven’t realized our days of warmth are almost over. Soon it’ll get colder and you may find yourself in the same situation as last fall… WITHOUT A BOO!

If you’re like me, you’ve made that mistake one too many times and for some reason when ever Fall appears, you’re just as surprised at your singleness as last year. Well not this year, baby! Below I’ve got a pretty close to fool-proof plan for bagging some manly warmth for the Fall:

1. Plan Early

Don’t put this plan into play during the 3rd week of August. You’ll get what you put in. You need options. You need time to feel your candidates out. Question for ya: Out of all the dates that you’ve gone on this year, how many of them have actually turned into relationships? For most people that number is low. I suggest starting up the quest in early August. Anytime earlier and he may still be in summer fling mode.

2. Go Out!

What’s the easiest way to meet someone? You gotta be out ladies! It’s going to be pretty hard to meet your Fall boo while stationed behind a tv chomping on Ben and Jerry’s. Be strategic.  Approach it the same way you’d approach networking. If you were a doctor, you wouldn’t go to a tech convention to meet other doctors, right? No need to be out every night, just strategically choose events that will produce the type of guy that you’d like to meet.

3. Look Nice EVERYWHERE You Go

You never know where you could meet someone. On the train, at work, during a lunch break, at the gym. I’ve been caught many a times making a run to grab a quick lunch and there he is: The man of my superficial dreams. And there I am, the messy haired school teacher/”who is she again?” girl that just happens to be in the checkout line with him. I’m not suggesting that you make it a fashion show everywhere you go but when you step out of the house, ask yourself this question “If I meet a cute guy today, would this be how I’d want him to see me?” If the answer is yes, then you’re good to go.

  1. Now, I'm not into flings but I recently took on #3 as a self-improvement measure. It hit me that I was throwing on clothes waaay too much…throwing on clothes to run to the store, throwing on clothes to sit at my desk at work (I don't walk around the building much and there is NO ONE in my work area to impress in that way). The only time I was "on" was on the weekend…the days I have real stuff to do…two whole days out of seven. I had the attitude of "Who do I have to impress? I'm not really going anywhere…" Then it dawned on me, "Everybody, fool! You're single! And who know's who you'll see or meet in that 5-day stretch!" LOL…smh.

    This is my 3rd week of being on everyday and not only am I getting more external results, but I feel better as well. 🙂

  2. Holiday Romances are a fabulous treat, it has been a while for me but I definately recommend them and agree with all that Annie has to say! The picture used alongside this article is perfect too, that was one hell of a romance to aspire too!

  3. Grow up and get yaself a woman or man to date. SMDH and people wonder why so make kids are born to single parents. SMDH. I've always had me a chick to date.

  4. Hi would you mind letting me know which hosting company you’re utilizing?
    I’ve loaded your blog in 3 different browsers and I must say this blog loads
    a lot quicker then most. Can you suggest a good hosting provider
    at a reasonable price? Thanks a lot, I appreciate it!
