Cupid’s Advice:

Sometimes, you look at yourself in the mirror and think you’re quite a catch. Other times, you might not be feeling yourself too much. The dating world is a mystery. You can never truly know what someone else is looking for until you put yourself out there, but then you have to face the possibility of rejection. Are you dating material or do you need a little more practice when it comes to love? Cupid has some tips:

1. High maintenance: Being high maintenance is not a desirable trait and very few people will tolerate dating someone who has unrealistic expectations. Most singles are looking for another individual who has the capability to be spontaneous and can enjoy the little things in life without complaining. If you don’t have to get dolled up for every outing or you can handle a date involving pizza every now and then, you’re bound to catch some cutie’s attention soon.

2. Independence: You need to be able to take care of yourself before you bring anyone else into your life. Independence is a turn-on. The person you’re dating should know you’re perfectly capable of handling the check after dinner if you needed to. Don’t let them feel like you’re only with them so you can mooch off of what they’ve worked hard for.

3. Conversationalist: No one wants to be around someone who can’t keep a conversation going. If you want to be successful in the dating world, you need to be intelligent and have excellent communication skills. Think about it. If things get serious with your new honey, you’ll have to be able to catch the attention of his family and friends. If you’re boring or lack social skills, your relationship won’t last long.
