dating tips (dedicated).

beauties, i not a dating expert (i'm a makeup expert), but i am in a very happy relationship. often at beauty events my fellow beauty blogging girlfriends will ask me for my dating secrets. after years of living in NYC, doing some dating myself, and trying to set up very single person i meet (i'm a bit of a yenta), i've come up with five universal dating tips to bestow.

here are my top recommendations for dating success:

1. choose wisely. your time is precious. more and more dating pre-selection occurs online now - which is great! you get to learn all the "first date" things about someone before actually spending a minute with them. if you know something is a non-negotiable for you, don't waste your (or their) time.

2. be yourself, absolutely, but don't be scary. if you collect snakes, make vegan chicken fingers for a living, and reside in your parents basement, good for you! but wait a little bit until the person you are dating gets to know you better before sharing these details. stick to the more normal facts about yourself, if you and this person are compatible and enjoying yourselves, slowly expose them to the more personal and potentially embarrassing parts of the real you.

3. read the signs. if someone likes you, they call you and try to make plans with you. if they aren't doing that, it's like the book says, he's just not that into you. if someone tells you they don't want to get married, and you do, trust that they are telling you the truth. hear what's being said to you, not just what you want to hear.

4. as we get older, dating gets more complicated including dating after divorce, or dating for parents. if this is the case for you, be sure to be upfront and matter-of-fact about what baggage you come with. if you aren't ashamed of your past, your potential partner won't be intimidated by it.

5. have fun! if you aren't enjoying yourself, no one else will enjoy you either. good luck out there!
