    How do you do it? How does it work?

    I don't know if it's the sort of thing I'd really want, but I can't really get a girlfriend with uni coming up... but at the same time I want something nice to happen over the summer, if only to give me a little confidence before uni starts...

    Or maybe confidence is the very thing you need to have a holiday romance? In which case I can forget about that.

    try and go to the clubs/pubs or similar when you're on holiday, or if you're doing a villa/hotel you can often meet people by the pool, thats how it worked for some people i know. just be friendly

    Why don't you just go and enjoy your holiday? Don't look for anything just above all, relax and enjoy whatever you have - and just have fun. And keep a smile on your face

    Then if you really wanna look for a fling, which I probably won't considering what's the point? - but anyway, if you're looking for a fling, then how about, go to the beach and sunbathe, or yeh go to the bar - although it all depends on what sorta girl you wanna meet really. Go the the beach - that way you can relax and enjoy yourself, look at women with little clothing on, and you can also show yourself off and attract a few ladies. All in one and if nothing else you'd have got a nice tan and have enjoyed a lovely ocean view and possibly a good swim.

    Well don't stalk or constantly stare at the girk you like. Sure scared me. Usually I'd like some attention, but last year two random guys following me around, couldn't keep their eyes off me, one filmed me. ~Really irritated me on my holiday

    just chat to random people in bars, at the beach or in your hotel or something, Holiday is different to anything else in that you just go up to random people and chat without them wondering what is going on.

    Alternatively, if you're on holiday in somewhere exotic or tropical like the Carribean, just linger about on a beach after a swim if there are girls nearby. Preferably when there's a sunset. That sort of worked for me when I went to Mauritius.

    Or you could swim in the hotel/villa pool when it's rather empty and there are girls around sunbathing. It helps if you're a graceul swimmer.

    oh... I'm not actually going anywhere Well, Swansea, but that doesn't really count it's like my 2nd home anyway.

    From what people have said it doesn't sound like I have what it takes to do it anyway. Clubs really aren't my thing. I hate sunbathing - 1. Seems like a bit of a waste of time. 2. I don't tan, I just burn. 3. I never attract anybody anyway. I can't just get laid and hope it sparks off a romance.. I'm a virgin

    Maybe I should just wait until uni... thanks anyway guys.

    I had a holiday fling last summer in Majorca and it didnt start in a club or anything - we met in the sea (off the hotel beach!) of all places!

    Awww :hugs: don't be so down on yourself.
    Holiday romances can't be that good, it's highly likely it'd either be a disappointment, a regret, or she'd break your heart. Then when the right girl for you comes along at uni you won't notice her because you're still missing the last one.

    Also, some girls would prefer you a virgin, it's not a really deplorable thing y'know. Just enjoy yourself, don't go out looking to pick up girls or you'll just send out 'creep' vibes and we'll all scarper. :rolleyes:
    Sorry if that's not very helpful, but I hope eventually you get what you want.
