Cupid’s Advice:

Meeting the person who is right for you is easier said than done.  Cupid has some dating advice for finding someone special through friends:

1. Be honest: Let your friends know that you’re looking to add members of the opposite sex to your friendship circle. You never know who you’re going to meet, and chances are, you’ll find some awesome new pals in the process. A relationship and love may not come right away, but expanding your horizon never hurts.

2. Be open: It’s often true that our closest friends know us better than we know ourselves, so let them prove that by setting you up. The worst that can happen is you add another bad date to your list and move on to the next one!
