Vacations mean meeting new people and falling in love. But summer romances are named so for a reason. It's because they're supposed to last only a season. Vacation flings must end and here are a few ways you can make sure you're not overly sentimental about who you think is "The One".

Don't Play Games
Wooing, refraining… the game that's played to get the girl or guy permanently cannot be played. If you like someone, say "I have two weeks in this place. Wanna have some fun?" Keep it straight, safe and simple.

Split the costs
Ask her out, take him water skiing but make sure you split costs. That way you're having fun for yourself. Pretty soon you'll be broke and start thinking about work and earning money. Voila, no mushy thoughts! Don't Have Romantic Dates

If you have to watch films, make it a new superhero thriller. Go on an adventure sport date. But don't make it a life or death experience. If the adrenaline is too much it could lead to making a commitment you can't get out of!

Be Yourself
If you have gas, don't hold back. If you hate alcohol don't pretend to be cool. We are always on our best behavior in the beginning because we want that person to see our best side. Who cares? If that person walks away, there are otherpeople in the hotel to impress.
