By Joshua Pompey

The end of the summer may be closing in, but that doesn’t mean we can’t still take advantage of the few weeks we have left. This is an optimal time to plan some date nights that will be remembered long down the road. Summer time is when I met the love of my life online, who I am proud to say is now my beautiful wife. Read the below dating advice from relationship expert Joshua Pompey to help spark that summer love.

Dating Advice to Help You Hold Onto Your Summer Crush!

1. Rooftop drinks: Drinks, city skyline, beautiful weather, and a beautiful woman. There really aren’t many better ways to spend a summer evening. This sure beats heading over to a sports bar or a neighborhood hole in the wall. With a scenic background, the night turns a bit more romantic, and ultimately, more memorable. If you don’t have a rooftop in your area, an outdoor venue that allows you to enjoy the fresh air will do. Most cities or towns will have at least one spot that is conducive to this type of setting.

2. A night at the beach: The second date I had with my wife was a night at the beach. We started out with some oceanside drinks and then moved the night to a casual outdoor restaurant. We ended the night sitting on a blanket and staring out to the ocean. Well, that’s not entirely true; the night actually ended with our first kiss!

3. An amusement park: Nothing says summer like a few rides, some cotton candy, and a ferris wheel. We may not have made it to a real amusement park, but we did manage to make it to Coney Island on 4th of July weekend. Between the food, quirky atmosphere, fireworks, and laughing about how ferris wheels make me nervous, it was an all around great night. If you don’t have an amusement park in you area, see what types of fairs or carnivals will be in town.

4. Catch a ball game: You know what my wife finds to be the most boring thing in the world? Baseball. Seriously. When I turn on a game she goes comatose within ten seconds. But guess what? We have a ton of fun at baseball games. The fresh air, the food, and the energy of a stadium is enough to put a smile on most people’s faces, regardless of whether or not they are sports fans.

5. Road Trip: This may have to come later in the dating game, but once you are officially on the path to relationship status, nothing seals the bond like a good old fashioned road trip. Ours involved renting several AirBnB’s as we crossed through Maryland, Baltimore, Virginia, and Washington. To this day, we have countless memories that we will never forget from this trip.
