The sun is shining, the birds are singing, so smile and breathe deep. You may have linked up during "cuffing season," but the winter chill has melted away to the warm summer sun. So if you're still single it's time to get ready for a spring fling or summer love. Here are four ways to prepare for your love life to heat up in 2019.

1. Relax
Relax in general and in anticipation of finding a romantic interest. Not only is it important to let things flow together, people who are more easygoing and less anxious are seen as more attractive. You'll appear confident and comfortable with yourself if you take a breather instead of leaping at the first person who looks your way.

You may also have to make some adjustments to the vibe you give off. Many women (and men) suffer from RBF – Resting B*tch Face. And it's a total bummer for everyone! You look like you have an attitude and are unhappy when you're not, and good guys and gals can be put off because of their assumptions about you. In this scenario you both lose. So even if it seems fake and takes a lot of effort, when you're social and open to finding a partner crack a little smile so you look comfortable and approachable.

2. Refresh Your Wardrobe
You don't have overspend on the latest fashion trends to update your digs. Go through your closet and find hidden treasures you thought you lost long ago. Tailor that top that never quite fit you right. Hem those pants that are looking a little ratty. Add some inexpensive earrings, a sequins bag, or colorful pumps as a statement piece. A few accessories can refresh any outfit.

If you're determined to get new digs shop at consignment stores and resellers. Better yet, set up a clothes swap with some girlfriends and shop in each others closets. Eat hors d'oeuvres, sip on some cocktails and find some swanky free outfits for your spring fling.

3. Take Picturesque Trips
It's pretty much mandatory to have some kind of online presence. With so much of your life, and your potential new flame's life on social media it would be good to replace your profile pic and update your albums. This way new suitors can get the best present impression when they look you up; which they will. You can plan solo trips or travel with your clique to instagramable locations or local gems in your own neighborhood. Find your lighting, strike a pose and snap some photos.

4. Have Genuine Fun
People will respond to the messages you send. And they'll see your pictures before reading your text. The images you upload should represent your best side but reflect your genuine intentions. If you're open to a fling don't shy away from sexy snaps and duck-lipped selfies. Show off your body in skimpy outfits if you're comfortable with that. There's nothing wrong with being a vixen, just be prepared for that specific type of attention.

If you prefer something more serious and stable put on a big smile and show off your personality. Don't be afraid to be silly, soft or strong. Exhibit your hobbies, values and what makes you happy. You'll get some shallow mass messages, as we all do, but the right people will gravitate toward you, too.

Remember, if your looking for summer love: Go with the flow, be chic and stylish, take great pictures, and be yourself.
