Page Larkin’s Mandatory: Top Three Tips to Get More Dates-
1. Update your profile picture – every month or two. Have a friend take an attractive photo at an event or new venue. More is better.
2. Change it up - If you have the same insipid opening line, “Wow, this is really awkward,” or “I’m a love machine looking for my perfect match is that you, honey bun?” or the really old-line: “I was born at an early age.” Delete and Upgrade. Every month, come up with a new and interesting attention getting title. Skip any and all ‘honey bun; references.
3. Don’t Get Stale, Flat and Boring: If you’ve been paying your dues at any dating site for over a year and striking out, take a break. It’ll be good for your soul, self-esteem, your brain and your body. Push away from the computer and go outside and play.
New Tactic: It’s time to comb your hair, brush your teeth, and put on great-looking outfit and go sit in a café.

Remember: look at people and smile. Yep, eye contact and smiling that is part of the deal.
