When you offer to do a little extra, you’re just being nice. OK, you actually want something in return, but you’re still being nice!

As long as you don’t repeat the same mistakes, it’s worth a try. Your chances are better when you both like the same things and have a common understanding of what’s important.

Instead of judging or blaming, accept what is. Revisit your pickup lines and dating strategies to see if they’re relevant to your current scene. If you’re looking for an emotional connection as well as a physical hookup, be patient, wait until mid-October. Other people have needs and comfort zones. All the really great lovers are very considerate. You could learn to be that way, too. Be sure to avoid the temptation to gossip about someone who wronged you. As much as the world loves drama, revenge won’t look good if you’re trying to find somebody new. Consider taking a break from dating to nurture all of the positive feelings within you. The more relaxed and tolerant you are, the more attractive you become.
