Date Doctor Alma Rubenstein had tips to boost your dating success!
We have all had them and what do we do about them? NOTHING! It's time to take action. Send them an email or leave them a note. Bake them some cupcakes or drop off some flowers where they work with a cute note.
PLAN SOMETHING FUN
Whether it's a neighborhood potluck, 2 tickets to a great concert tonight, or an author reading don't be afraid to be a man or woman with a plan. It's so much easier to ask someone if you have something specific in mind and you are excited about it. It also takes the pressure off when you are asking out the opposite sex.
SPEAK UP AND DRESS UP
Speak up-- ----Ladies. Too many times we wait for men to approach or men to ask us out. this is 2012 ladies it's OK and men really like it!!!
Guys--do you have anything in your closet aside from jeans,t-shirt, and sneakers? Women feel uncomfortable when they are dressed to impress and you are not. We like our men looking sharp. It also shows you care about your appearance, have taste and style, and you made an effort to look nice for your date.
MAKE SOMETHING OR BAKE SOMETHING
I don't know anybody who wouldn't like some warm cookies, or meat loaf, or fresh made zucchini bread. It lets the opposite sex know you are talented and gracious. Or if you have a specific talent or hobby like wood working or painting.
GIVE YOUR SELF
Do people and strangers really know who you are? Are you holding back when you meet someone? Each and every person is great in their own way, especially in personality. Let it shine!!! Don' let it take weeks or months cause they wont be single anymore. Time is of the essence and first impressions don't really make an impression especially if you are shy.
