Dating In A Heatwave


Temperatures have been soaring this week and long may it continue! OK, that may be a little optimistic, but while we can, we thought we’d share a few tips for dating when it’s hot, hot, hot…

Hot chat up lines
What do us Brits love talking about? The weather, of course! The rare but wonderful British heatwave provides the perfect conversation starter… “Gosh, it is hot isn’t it! Fancy heading somewhere cool for ice cold lemonades?” Ding Ding!

Perfect summer evenings
The fact that the sun is shining should be reason enough to suggest a date, so use the long, warm summer evenings to your advantage. See if there’s anything in the way of open air cinemas or pop-up festivals in your area for the perfect summer date with a difference, or take a picnic somewhere scenic to watch the sunset together. Hello romance!

Be revealing
Everyone feels sexy when it’s hot, so get those pulses racing by revealing a bit of skin! Shorts or teeny dresses aren’t always acceptable date attire but somehow, when temperatures are high, anything goes! Make the most of it. But guys, keep the tops on. However hot you are, taking your top off on a date will either put her off (sorry) or she’ll just think you’re a big show off.

Sunglasses off!
Let your date see your eyes. No, I don’t mean letting the sun burn your retinas to crisps but since eye contact is vital dating behaviour, try not to keep your sunglasses on for the whole time. Your eyes are also a powerful flirting tool, so ditch the shades and get flirty at thirty (degrees)!

Until next time,
