Temporarily exiting the dating scene can do wonders for your love life.

For many people, the warm months are a time to pursue a summer romance or fling. For others, summer is a time to start anew in general—when anything is possible. Essence encourages you to aim for the latter but ditch the first. That’s right; they explain why you should take a break from the dating scene. My favorite benefit of this "dating sabbatical" is one they compare to the break you give yourself to check over a paper or presentation. You complete it, then go back to it later and often see mistakes you didn't notice before. They say taking a break from dating for awhile can also help make dating red flags that much easier to see.
