If you're single and ready to mingle while you're on vacation, then you're going to want to read this article where we give you tips on how to do exactly that!

If you've ever seen the 1998 movie, How Stella Got Her Groove Back, then you might have fantasized about finding a hot stud (or gal) of your own when you're on vacation. When you tell your friends that you're hoping to live out your "Stella" dreams and fall in love, they might talk you down by saying things like, "Keep dreaming," "You're not going to meet someone worthwhile," or "You have no idea what kind of person you'll meet abroad - it's unsafe!"

Well, don't let those nay-sayers get the best of you because you really can find love (yes, love) while on vacation! Keep reading to learn how!

  1. Don't Go On Vacation Just to Find Love

Going on vacation is a fantastic way to experience new things, meet new people, and let your hair down. If you go on vacation with the intention of meeting the love of your life, you'll wind up trying too hard and focus your attention on the wrong people. 

The truth of the matter is, when you keep your expectations to a minimum, you're going to be more carefree and relaxed. People will see that you're more approachable and will want to get to know you. You'd be surprised by how obvious it is when someone tries too hard!

  2. Remember to Get the Digits (or Other Contact Info)

Once you've met someone and hit it off with them, you don't want to miss the opportunity to share contact information! We cannot stress this enough! All too often singles will meet someone and have a great time with them they part ways without getting the other person's phone number, email address, physical address or even their social media handles!

How on earth can you nurture a budding romance if you have no way to get in touch with them? You can't! 

So, before either of you leave to return home, make sure you get their details. You'll be glad you did.

  3. Let Your Guard Down

We all have our own bits of baggage and some of us have erected a protective barrier between their hearts and the rest of the world. That's okay because no one really enjoys getting hurt. However, if you're trying to find someone you could spend the rest of your life with, you've got to be willing to show a little vulnerability. 

We aren't saying that you have to lay it all out there on the first date, nor are we saying that you should wear your heart on your sleeve. What we're suggesting is to let your guard down a little bit. Although there's always a possibility of rejection, there's always the possibility of a love connection, too.

  4. Accept Invitations to Go On a Date

It's not uncommon for vacationers to consider a "date" meeting up at the hotel bar or agreeing to sit poolside together. While these are nice things to do together, a real date should happen at least once while on vacation. 

A real date, like the ones you'd go on back home, can help you and the other person get to know each other better and see if there's any real chemistry between you two. It just makes sense!

  5. Always Keep In Touch After You Go Home

Before either of you part ways and head back home, keep in touch with each other. While you may not be exclusive, you can (and should) keep in touch. Who knows, the more you get to know each other, the more likely it is that love could grow between you. 

  Final Thoughts on Finding Love on Vacation

There's nothing written anywhere that if you want to be in a relationship with someone, you can only meet them at home. Why, if people can fall in love on a dating website, then falling in love while on vacation is definitely a possibility! You just have to let your guard down and let love happen.
