 May is nearly done and  it’s starting to get hot outside: this can only mean one thing, summer! Summer vacation is a time to relax and have fun whether that means staying up late every night with friends or traveling around the world. A lot of the times, the start of summer brings up a lot of questions for relationships. For example, should we take a break for the summer? If a partner goes off to camp, can they be trusted? Lots of questions like this arise and there are several ways to approach these questions and ensure that you have a safe, fun, and happy summer vacation,
    There are lots of reasons for why a relationship may want to be put on hold for the summer. For example, let’s say that you are going to camp this summer for a month and you are not allowed to have a cell phone or have visitors on the weekend. This makes it difficult to stay in contact with a partner and nearly impossible to get closer to each other during this time. A concern may arise that you or your partner may be tempted to date someone else during the summer since the two of you will not be together. When a relationship is early enough, it might just be easier to take a break for the summer. This is not to say that if you are going to be gone for the summer, you should absolutely end a relationship. If you feel that you are your partner trust each other enough and have enough faith in each other that neither of you are going to see someone else, then there is no need to put the relationship on hold for the next three months. This is simply a possibility that if you are afraid that things might become too difficult if neither of you are going to be with each other for the summer, it can be a simple solution to take a break.
    Inevitably, there is always the hope of finding a summer love. It can be easy to meet someone and take a liking to them during these next three months. These flings can bring a sense of happiness to someone. However it is important to not fall too deep too fast. It is important to think with your brain and not just your heart. When things go too quickly in a relationship, there comes the possibility for problems to pop up.
    So overall, what am I trying to get at? Summer is a time to be fun and happy. It can be helpful during this time to eliminate unnecessary stress by maybe putting a relationship on hold or trying to remember to use your brain when it comes to summer loves. Summer is a time to be free, but not necessarily to be careless. Remember that you have a fragile heart, it needs tender love and care. Be cute! Be sweet! Most importantly, have fun! Summer is a time to play and laugh in the sun and do things that you would not be able to do when school is in session.
