Most women know you have to dress to impress. When it comes to grabbing a man's attention, you have to look the part. Some women mistakenly assume that the best way to attract attention is by wearing plunging necklines, short skirts and long boots. Of course, don't forget lots of makeup and overdone hair but if you talk to these women about their love lives you'll, not surprisingly, find that they are not attracting the right attention and often times attract men who are interested in only brief, non-committed relationships. Why is this? Because this type of "sexy" attire is sending the wrong impression.

BUT, you’re worried that you might run out of things to say! No sweat! We at Dating with Dignity have got you covered.

With an estimated 40 billion singles online, it has never been easier to target and meet potential love interests. At the click of a button, you can meet and possibly find the man or woman of your dreams. So why isn’t it working for you?
Dear Dr. Romance: What to say in this situation? Okay, so there's this girl in my art class that I really want to talk to and get to know! Problem is she sits at a different table than me and I just plain don't know what to say to her! I'm a senior and she's a sophomore! What should I say to her to show her I'm interested in her? I haven't talked to her yet so I need something to break the ice! Dear Reader: To break the ice, break something! Break a colored pencil or a crayon or something, and then go ask her if you can borrow hers.
If you’re in a new relationship, the looming holidays may mean you’re a tad anxious about meeting "the family." Naturally, you want to make a good impression, and while it’s what’s on the inside that counts, your appearance will speak for you before you even open your mouth.

As a freelance writer, I'm always interviewing random and interesting people. And they're not just dating experts—my subjects can range from a guy who ploughs cornfield mazes to a woman who wore lipstick to her mastectomy. So the other day, I was talking to Stan Blits, Co-Producer of The Price is Right. He was explaining how he auditions contestants, and I realized that what he was telling me sounded like dating advice!

Ever gone on a date with a guy, expected to hear from him but, for reasons you don't understand, he never calls you back? We're guessing the answer is yes.
