Do you have a summer romance you recall? Are you looking forward to one this summer?

It’s that season again, and there are few romances that can compare to the ones of summer.

If summer finds you staying at home, perhaps you will find a summer job, meet new people, hang out with friends, date your “steady” from school, or date that handsome (or sophisticated and lovely) “college student” who is home just for the summer…and probably working, too.

If you are in that “prime” dating time of youth during which your hormones are racing almost as rapidly as your imagination, it is certainly a thrilling time of life.

If you are “past all that” but hoping for another summer romance, so much the better, for you perhaps have an even better idea what you are looking for and how precious it can be, even what it can lead to.

The thrill of knowing the thrill, and anticipating it, surely has a lot to do with what makes a summer romance so special.

What will it be: the local amusement park, snacks at a favorite spot, a picnic, a stroll by the water, holding hands and knowing that the hand holding your own is gripping just as tightly and happily, an evening campfire, toasted marshmallows, a drive downtown to see the lights there at night, a dance, a concert, a swim, just a long, personal heart to heart talk?

There is something about summer; the weather typically makes it seem as if there are more hours in the day including longer evenings. The sunlight hours are extended, making time for work and still leaving adequate hours for play, and the whole world is available, no more being cooped up inside.

The summer sky hosts clouds of all varieties, and flowers? Oh, the flowers and shade trees, the weeping willows swaying in a gentle breeze looking every bit as if they are hula dancers in Hawaii.

The nice part? Summer comes every year, and the memories linger on forever.

      Deborah Brooks: Some folks travel during the summer romance season, and I am sure some Hubbers could write some great stories about romance in a foreign land, romance on the high seas, etc. We can look forward to those, too.

      Genna East: Oh, those summers on the New England beaches, lakes, and rivers. Hard to beat, and as the gal said when asked where she would be going out of Boston on her vacation: "What do you mean, I'm already here!"

      Oh I will never forget one particular summer romance long ago. Your article brought a secret smile to my face…such memories do live a very long time. But my hubby now holds that special place in my heart; summer, fall, winter and spring. This is a delightful hub.

      writer20: You met him in December. When did you marry him? In the winter, or after a summer romance?

      I consider my husband my winter romance because we met in a December.I have found out over the years I would have sincerely lost out on such a great man if I hadn't married him.

      win-winresources: Surely an enduring, all seasons romance makes both partners fortunate indeed.

      Yes, Perspycacious-

      I plan on having a steamy summer romance with the woman of my dreams. Who, just by odd chance, is the mother of my children and my wife of 36 years.

      Oh, and I will be having a spring, winter and autumn romance with her as well.

      My imagination remains unabated.

      I'm a lucky man.
