We surveyed 3,324 girls ‘n’ guys for our summer love
feature. You can grab all the juicy details on the ins and outs of a sizzlin’
summer romance in our June/July 2012 issue, on stands now, but we saved a few
tidbits just for you. Here are seven dos and don’ts to make your seasonal fling
Do…work those digits
Best way to contact your crush? 64 percent say texting takes
the cake—and gets the guy.
Nearly half of all girls surveyed say a girl asking a guy
out is totally awesome. And yeah, 40 percent say it’s awkward. But go for it

thing about summer sweeties—you can find them anywhere and everywhere. Chat up

Don’t…be afraid to be
Dudes dig girls with a sense of humor—and we know you know
that, but now’s the time to show it! Whether you truly have an ace knock-knock
up your sleeve or just some so-awful-they’re-amazing pick-up lines to share,
pull out your best (or best of the worst), offer up a grin and you’ll win him
The guys we surveyed said they wished a girl would come up
to them and just tell ‘em straight-out how they felt. So pluck up the courage
to tell your crush you think he’s cute, already!
What summer love rule
do you live by, lovelies?
