Cupid’s Advice:

Many people stick to the same type when dating, but never seem to find their perfect match.  Read how Cupid can help break up your routine and find new avenues for love.

1. Make a new list: When you find yourself alone – again – because the people you date aren’t what you’d hoped, it’s time to throw away your list of requirements.  Start fresh with new criteria that wasn’t on your list.

2. Check out different places: If you normally go to clubs or bars, try taking a class at a local dance studio, or join a writing club.   Sign up for something you’re passionate about.  Not only do you have the chance to meet potential partners with similar interests as you, but you might also make new friends along the way.

3. Talk to your friends: A great way to change up your dating patterns is to check in with your pals that are happily coupled up.  Ask what they did differently, and try out their technique.
