It’s that time of year when the days are longer and hotter, the night feels sexier and more people are out and about. Ahhhhh, the sweet smell of summertime when the possibility of romance pulsates with promise. The business of matchmaking is on fire right now. Summer is a wonderful opportunity for singles to shift their perspective and approach in their dating life and tilt the odds in their favor of meeting someone special. Here are a few tips to do just that:

Say YES! This time of year is ripe with barbecues, parties, boating excursions, volleyball on the beach, picnics, etc..There are more opportunities for social interaction which is precisely why you must accept all invitations. You never know who you’re going to meet and where so get off of the couch, turn off the TV and make an effort. You’ve heard it before: “If you always do what you’ve always done, you’ll always get what you’ve always got.”

Let your guard down. Everyone’s been hurt and nobody likes the feeling. Being vulnerable and putting oneself out there requires courage (and optimism) but it just takes one encounter to change your world. So let go a little; leave the office persona behind and feel free to be your playful, silly self. Stop worrying about what people will think or if you’ll be accepted or rejected. So what?! Our most successful matchmaking clients are the ones who are slightly detached to the outcome. Their philosophy is being open and adventurous to whomever they meet. Their motto: if it works out, fantastic…if not, life is still good. Their real secret weapon? They genuinely love their life and lead with positivity instead of need.

Take advantage of LA. There are so many cool things to do in our city especially in the summer. Festivals, outdoor concerts, new restaurant openings, block parties, street fairs, etc…Be creative and adventurous with your time and get out of your 5 mile radius for goodness sakes. LA Mag, Angeleno Magazine, Rundown.com/LA, Inside Hook and Thrillist are great resources for what’s happening in LA. Get on their lists so you can check out their events.

Play, Flirt, Love. People seem to give themselves permission to be more light, fun and playful in the summer. Throw caution to the wind and say hello to that beautiful stranger or smile at the guy in Whole Foods or your yoga class. Make yourself more available and differentiate yourself with a little step outside of your comfort zone. That’s always where the magic happens.

Now sit back with your Caipirinha and light heart and let the fun begin!
