Who You Should Date This Summer Based On Your Zodiac Sign

If we've learned anything from the musical Grease, it's that summer romances are good for you. You can reinvent yourself, discover new ways of being, and you can be as passionate as you want because you know that when the summer ends you probably won't see him or her again.


They say that a summer fling is a necessary part of growing up, and that doesn't mean that they're limited to teenagers; you might meet someone while traveling or at a summer barbecue or party. How can you know exactly what you want in a partner if you haven't experienced all types of people?
