We're all too familiar with the dating dance, but since the season of summer lovin' is fully ablaze, it's time again to take a crack at romance. Yelp isn't a dating site, but we're happy to provide some heart-felt suggestions for those looking to find love, heat things up, or even power through a recent break-up.

The revamped Clevelander – with 9 bars inside and out (and miniclub1020 Music Boxx on the 2nd floor!) – could be your one-stop sexy people spotting experience. Or put a little love in your art at either Second Saturdays or Viernes Culturales. Take it from Whitney R, who assures "wandering the streets with cups of wine is never a bad time," and Robert C, who ponders, "Cigars, art, good-looking women, guayaberas, and loud Cuban music – what else do you need?"

Already found your media naranja, but looking to make some extra sweet memories? Ivonne-Marie C's "little piece of paradise" is Española Way, where couples stroll down the dimly-lit, cobblestone street taking in the charming cafés and bohemian shops. Over on Talk, Jorge R's reveals his sexy secret locale is the bay-front spot just at the end of the Venetian Causeway -- to get your amor in the mood for lovin', simply "sit by the water, relax, and take in" panoramic views of Miami's skyline. Want to get more wet? How about a moonlight sail on Biscayne Bay?

Of course who amongst us hasn't felt the sting of a broken heart? Try letting your emotions run wild at new gym, Knockout Zone's Just Pain class. Whatever doesn't kill you makes you stronger, right? Tough cookie Patty J gets pumped up thanks to high-energy tunes and inspirational trainers at South Florida Boxing. But when you've truly hit rock bottom, climb your way back to the top at X-treme. Denise P recs it "to anyone that wants to challenge their body and do something different." One small climb for you, one giant boost for your ego. And if that doesn't do it for you, just remember: as long as there are lapdances, there's always hope.

What do you think of dating in Miami? Share your stories on Talk.

This is a story of boy meets girl, begins the wry, probing narrator of 500 Days Of Summer, and with that the film takes off at breakneck speed into a funny, true-to-life and unique dissection of the unruly and unpredictable year-and-a-half of one young man's no-holds-barred love affair. Directed by Marc Webb and written by Scott Neustadter and Michael Weber, 500 Days of Summer stars Joseph Gordon-Levitt and Zooey Deschanel. In select theaters July 17, 2009.

Theo H. on Casa Tua
"The only place other than Sant Ambroeus in Southampton that provides an ambiance so invitingly comfortable you never want to leave.

I loved Casa Tua so much, I had to come back twice in the same week. For my introduction, I sat inside the 'living room', had a glass of the house Cab, buratta, fois…"

"Charming and disarming--that's Peppy's.

Tucked away near Palermo Circle in the Gables is this romantic hide-away restaurant. This is a perfect spot for a date. And, I swear there's something magical about the place when you're there with the right person. This also happens to be the site where I said…"
