There's nothing like a good ol' fashioned fling during those warmer months to make your summer even sweeter. But when August arrives, sometimes things can get complicated.
No one knows what it's like to experience that "summertime sadness" quite like Lana Del Ray. To help you through the rollercoaster of emotions that come with summer love, here are a few tips from the self-described "gangsta Nancy Sinatra" herself.
Summer is the perfect time for romance
When you first see him at the beach, you're like
And you can’t stop thinking about him
You know he's from the wrong side of the tracks
But whatever, it's summer. #YOLO.
So you're like
It starts off with that warm and fuzzy feeling that you can't quite explain
He makes you laugh
He takes you on motorcycle rides
And car rides
And on romantic boat rides, too.
Sometimes you go dancing
On the inside, you feel all
It's you guys against the world
He just gets you
And you realize that you're falling for him
It's the kind of love that makes you feel like a poet or something
Until you see photos of him with another girl on Instagram
You're all like
And immediately become depressed
And feel all kinds of feelings
The world feels like a dark place
But you soon realize that you're better off without him, anyway
Because you're independent
Summer love doesn't always last forever
But he'll always have a special place in your heart
So don't forget to smile. You're gonna be OK.
Besides, there’s always next summer to find true love.
