Here is a three-step love advice action plan based on my best-selling dating advice book, Love in 90 Days: The Essential Guide to Finding Your Own True Love. This simple three-step dating plan can make your love affirmation a reality in 2010:
1. Meet New People
Find and say hello to three new guys or women every day. Assuming you are in a safe or public place, make eye contact, smile, say ‘Hi’. Where you ask? Sign up for on-going classes/activities that interest you that have lots of potential partners in them—for example: finance, investing and business at your local college’s School of Continuing and Professional Studies; rock-climbing and golfing; snowboarding/skiing; hiking; and cigar tasting are great for meeting men. Women are plentiful at cooking, growth, spirituality or yoga courses. Coed city sports teams are great and usually have an even mix of genders. There are many other activities, classes and clubs to consider so search online on any topic plus the name of your city or town.
2. Work Your Online Dating Program
Throw out your old photo and profile. Have a friend who is a good photographer, make that a great photographer, take 100 headshots of you in order to get one that looks especially warm, attractive and inviting. Write up a fresh interesting profile with the help of any writer friends you have. After you post your new photo and profile, spend at least two-three hours a week looking around the site, sending and responding to messages and connecting by phone and in person with people. Block out time in your calendar to work the program.
3. Use Social Networking
Sign up for Facebook or any other social network and start making friends. If you are already on the sites, gather more friends. Make sure you indicate your relationship status is single. Chat folks up. Find old connections from the past. Look up lost loves and find out what they are up to. Lots of people are finding true love on these kinds of sites.
