You Will Need
* A spring break destination
* A sense of adventure
* And common sense
Step 1. Pick a fun, popular destination
Pick a fun, popular destination. No one is going to a cornfield in Iowa for spring break—go to where the party is!
According to one survey, the top three spring break picks for 2007 were, in order, Panama City, Florida; Cancun, Mexico; and South Padre Island, Texas.
Step 2. Invest in new clothes
Invest in some new clothes. Girls, pack your cutest bathing suits and a sarong; guys, take along a few nice shirts.
Step 3. Pack sun block
Pack lots of sun block. Your chances of getting it on will diminish greatly if you look like a tomato and can't bear to have your skin touched.
Step 4. Make plan for getting lucky
Plan what to do if someone gets lucky, like texting your roommates to lay claim on the room before arriving with your date in tow.
Step 5. Don't hang in packs
Don't hang out in packs. It's much harder to approach someone if his or her ten BFFs are gawking.
Step 6. Enter contests
Enter contests—dance, karaoke, make-out, or, what the heck, wet T-shirt. You want to be noticed.
Step 7. Don't be intimidated
Don't be intimidated—go ahead and approach the person you've got your eye on. If you're a woman, the odds are greatly in your favor: studies show you have a 90% chance of success if you make the first move!
Step 8. Offer to buy someone a drink
Offer to buy someone a drink. It's the fastest way to break the ice.
Step 9. Check out alternative spring break trips
Consider trading hedonism for altruism this year by spending your vacation helping the less fortunate.
