Learning to step outside of your comfort zone could make for a much more positive dating experience.
All too often we tend to get in our own ways, especially when it comes to dating. From our preferred checklist of qualities we're seeking in a partner to our pet peeves, remaining too comfortable within our own bubble could make it difficult to attract the right man.
It isn't always easy to change or step outside of our comfort zones but if you tend to have a reputation for being picky, hard to please or even "too girly," chances are a change of pace could be just what the doctor ordered.
My fiancée recently took the bar exam, and has been busy with her job search ever since. What with my lengthy work hours, her studying for the bar and now job search, not to mention our extensive wedding planning (with our families), it seems like we just haven’t been able to spend all that much time together.
Given all that’s been going on, I thought it might be a good idea to surprise her with something special - any ideas?
There are lot of reasons why you still can't find your soul mate. But let's just concentrate on the things that are in your power to change!
1. Stop being picky. Of course you want to date the perfect person, but maybe instead of sitting at home all alone you should give someone more regular a chance? Sometimes people can surprise you and you should stay open for new contacts. Maybe this guy is not perfect, but he will introduce you to his friend. You never know.

As the weather gets colder and the nights get longer, it’s tempting to just stay inside and cuddle up with your partner under a warm blanket while watching a good movie. And while alone time is always nice (and necessary), don’t let the winter weather stop you from getting out with your special someone and creating memories that will last a lifetime.

When was the last time you volunteered? Yeah, that's what we thought.
After seeing Emma Stone and Andrew Garfield turn a date into an opportunity to raise awareness about charities, I started thinking of ways I could also turn boyfriend time into volunteering time. Call me crazy, but spending time together and helping people in need sounds better than another dinner-and-movie date.
This Southern boy certainly knows the way into his girlfriend's cliché heart.
Now, we know things go down differently in the South than they do where we're based in NYC. There are plenty more cowboy boots, country boys and Kenny Chesney songs, which is all "fine and dandy" in our book.
But, for a gal who's not from around those parts, a date proposal that involves large quantities of mud does not sound like a fun, romantic way to spend a Friday night.
