You only live once. Everyone has heard the saying but even after the overused YOLO has gone out of style, people haven't really grasped the actual meaning of it.

You only have one shot at life as the person you are now, so you might as well make it interesting, but in today's day and age men and women are too often judged for their need to be with another person or lack thereof. The most important thing to do in this scenario, is to ignore everyone and do whatever makes you happy and makes you feel like you're living. Flings are often looked down upon and people who enjoy them are deemed sloppy and terrible at "actual" relationships. But why?

Flings are all but necessary. They're fun and offer up some great experience to take with you along with tips and tricks to hold on to for the rest of your life. Time "wasted" on any person that was considered important at one point was time well spent.

Be spontaneous, it'll give you life and lead to new experiences and fun stories. Meet some new people, kiss a stranger, invite him/her home for a fun night or cuddle up and watch movies. Ask personal questions and make note of how different every single person is and how each one has their own secrets. Try to remember the tiny details of their faces, the tiny scar above his eye, the mole right above her lip, and the crooked tooth from when they fell off of a swing as kids. Make sure to take lots of pictures so you can always remember the good moments. And when things go bad or when they have run their course, call it quits but try to leave on good terms. Do not grasp at empty straws. Do not hold onto their old shirts, trying to cling to the scent that made them, and make sure to fight off the catch in your throat when you see their favorite ice cream flavor at the store.

Do not invest yourself fully in these flings. But make sure that the people involved also keep their feelings carefully locked away. Do not lead them on. Make sure your intentions are clear and something you can both agree upon. Do not waste time on stressing about meeting parents and planning future holidays and vacations. Live only in the now. Only worry about what fun memories you'll be making for the night. See in the theater and make out in the back row like kids dating for the first time. Skip the expensive 5 star restaurant and instead grab a hot dog from a stand and sit on the curb like you're still teenagers borrowing their parents' money. Grab a blanket and set it on the grass in a field with a bottle of champagne and stargaze together as if you're falling in love for the first time. Afterwards pack up and go your separate ways or agree to hang onto the memorable evening together.

Go through the motions of dating, but don't give yourself over all the way. After all, this is a set of tips for fun and simple flings, not the guide to marrying the one. If along the way you realize you're in over your head without the other person tumbling after you just as fast, pull back. Withdraw yourself and realize that fun or not, you can survive alone. In fact realize this side of your personality and embrace it. Enjoy your flings and fun-filled nights, but don't forget that you don't depend on anyone else. Go home and enjoy a glass of wine or cup of tea alone on the couch with nothing else but your TV to keep you company. Realize that this is also a part of life and is totally healthy. Understand that at times you will need to be alone and that it is absolutely ok. Give yourself alone time and then get back out there.

Flings & Love

Life is short and should not be wasted worrying over if every passerby could be a potential soulmate. Do not spend a single minute on anyone who doesn't treat you as you deserve. Remember that while they attempt to make up their minds about you, indecision is also a decision. A decision not to risk being vulnerable. Remember that this isn't the end of the world and that there are plenty of other people in the world to have fun with before you need to worry about "settling". Remember that when you least expect it, you may stumble upon love itself if that was your goal in the beginning. But until then enjoy a nice fling or five.
