The new year is the perfect time to get out there and meet someone new.

Do you ever sit around wondering why you haven't been on a date in ages? You think, How come my dating life isn't going anywhere?

Finally, go alone so you will have to get out of your shell and meet more people.

Do you go for the person you are most attracted to or do shy away?  Do you wait to be noticed by others or do you send out signals that you are interested? Are you judging people and looking for their flaws? What if you looked around the room and focused on what is attractive about each person instead? Keep reading ...
