The 7 Stages Of Breaking Up With Your Summer Fling

Having a summer fling is so fun! It’s basically a contract for a 3-month non-boyfriend. It’s more than being friends-with-benefits, but you’re not really dating. And the time period is too short for anyone to really develop serious feelings so breaking it off should be a cinch, right?

Fling: Totally, follow me back on Insta.
You: Grool. See ya next summer maybe.
Fling: Sweet.
