And being ourselves is one of the most important keys to finding love, because the right person for us will be very attracted to who we really are.” –Christine Baumgartner, dating coach at ThePerfectCatch.com

“People often feel obligated to go on dates they don't want to go on. Worse than wasting time and money, you are getting burnt out.  Being pickier with who you go out with limits the amount of times you have to have your friend call with a fake emergency to save you from another minute of torture. Then, hopefully, when you go on dates with people you are enthusiastic about, you will not be burnt out. You will be on your A-game, and not thinking about how it would have been so much better to have been on your couch with popcorn, catching up on The Bachelor.” –Lori Salkin, senior matchmaker at SawYouatSinai.com

“Smile at 20 new guys each day. It sounds really simple, and it is. And it will open doors, and make conversation (and even dates) available to you from guys you didn’t think you’d be able to date. Try this and prepare for a burst of love in your life.” —April Masni, relationship coach at AskApril.com

“Dating is the worst way to get to know someone. Get involved with things you really enjoy—dancing, religious events, volunteering, etc. Have fun just doing that. If you find someone you like, just keep watching and interacting with them. But, don't 'date' them. That way, you can identify their true personality to see if it could be a 'harmony' match to your personality style.” —Kimberly West, dating expert at www.personality-ville.com
