3. Take risks. If you get out of your comfort zone, that is a very good thing. Experiment and try different approaches. When you are failing miserably, you are learning to change what isn't working.
You're not going to meet the love of your life if you're afraid to smile at that cute guy in line at the grocery store. Smiling and saying hi is a good way to start. Practice on people you aren’t attracted to, so when Mr. Handsome comes along you will feel more confident about your brilliant smile and saying "hi" skills.
4. Work with the law of averages. Less isn't always more. When it comes to dating and you're not having any luck, you've got to keep going up to bat. Really get in the game.
Pro basketball players didn't start out in the NBA. They played basketball on the playground, in middle school, on the high school team, then college. When they were really on top of their game, that's when they would get drafted for the Celtics or the Lakers.
Wilt Chamberlain didn't meet lots of women by sitting on the bench. He was practicing and playing the game. If you're not confident, you will become that way if you make the choice to practice confidence. Fake it till you make it. Make your dating life epic.
5. Don't take things personally. A woman might not wink back, call back, text you back or have a second date with you. Rejection is part of the process. If you go up to a woman and she blows you off, don't worry about it. She could have lost her job or her cat died and she's having a really bad day. She might have a boyfriend or just isn't into you. There are plenty of single women out there and when you're ready you'll meet a good one.
6. Take care of yourself. Physically, emotionally and mentally. Make sure you smell good, feel good and look good. First impressions count, so make your first impression a good one.
