With the beautiful summer upon us, going on vacation (and finding love!) sounds like something straight out of a Nicholas Sparks novel. Bustle has a few tips to make a vacation romance a reality though!

  • Go to the bars while at your vacation destination. Just as you would at home, going to a bar is a great way to meet new people, loosen your inhibitions and flirt, flirt, flirt!
  • Put down your phone! How do you expect to meet someone if you never lift your head up long enough to find them?
  • Talk to everyone because you never know what you'll have in common with someone else. And maybe if you get to talking and they invite you out, that may open your sights to even more people to meet. The possibilities are endless!

While on vacation, you can open yourself to new people, places and things with no strings attached. Enjoy the sun, the surf, the sand and the people!
