DATING ADVICE AND TIPS
If you’ve been together for a while, those “in love sparkles” can disappear. Sometimes they just ebb and flow, coming and going mysteriously. When they’re gone, things just don’t feel as good as they used to. Often, we’re not very aware of why things don’t feel quite right, you wonder if your relationship is over, and hope that somehow, the love will return. We don’t know why it went away and we don’t know why it comes back.
Have you ever gone out on a date on which you felt you really connected with the guy? The conversation is awesome. You have so much in common. He has a great sense of humor that has you laughing throughout the night. There's even a moment in the middle of your date where your mind wonders what it would be like to have sex with this guy. At the end of the date, he tells you how much he likes you, and how he would like to get together again. He seems like the perfect guy… the guy you've been waiting for.

When you refuse to change or embrace new challenges, you’re not going to get any of the good stuff that comes with opening yourself up to new experiences.
Successful dating is about being your authentic self, not hiding behind who you THINK you should be. I hear women describe themselves in the same way over and over again, and I bet you can identify with it, too. "I'm generally a very friendly, confident gal...unless I'm in the company of a single man—especially one I'm attracted to. In that case I turn into mush."
How you dress, whether you smile and what you say are among the things that can play a role in determining whether your first date is going to lead to a second date. But there are other more subtle factors that can influence your date’s opinion of you. A recent study led by Michael Slepian from Tuft’s University shows that our assessment of a person as masculine or feminine may be influenced by what we touch while making the assessment.
I was at a conference of academics and I was talking to a woman about what I do. She told me about a very smart woman who teaches finance, very accomplished, many awards and lots of respect from her peers.
