Summer flings are all about living in the moment, the perfect synthesis of passion and convenience. For many of us, our most memorable summer flings would happen right on the cusp of adulthood; that sweet moment when we could be both carefree and selfish, as this kind of romance was fleeting by design.

There’s something magical about these no strings attached, short-term summer romances. Not only did you get to knock boots for a few weeks or months, but most of the time they’d end as soon as attention turned back towards work or school obligations. They’re like nature’s version of Snapchat.


Whether you met your summer fling at your seasonal job, at the beach, or while knocking around a foreign country on summer break, these carefree dalliances hold a special place in our heart. We asked friends and co-workers to tell us about their wildest summer flings. Here’s what they said.
