Every sport has a playbook and dating is no different. Singles everywhere now have the choice to “swipe right” if they think you’re hot and want a date. You’ll need to be ready for any and all situations where meeting someone significant is at stake. Here are 10 plays that will help singles conquer the dating game.
Use any tool (i.e. hair, posture, and smile) possible to achieve this wonderful act of playfully communicating with whomever you come in contact with. You’ll become quite comfortable with flirting the more you practice. Smile and appear to be an interesting person. You’ll get the attention of an admirer.
Make sure at all times that you’re well groomed. Nails need to be clean, cut, or manicured. Have at least one go-to outfit for accepting a last minute party invitation or date. It should make you feel special.
Master at least one dance move that goes with a variety of music, so that when the time comes you’ll look like a pro! Dancing with the Stars anyone?
Know at least one great joke:
We’ve all heard that laughter is the best medicine. Women adore men who can make them laugh, so having at least one great joke to tell is a plus. Be able to tell it anywhere. Make sure it’s a clean one, or tastefully naughty.
A 30 second commercial:
Be able to tell a bit about yourself in 30 seconds or less. Something interesting that makes us want to turn the page of your book. Practice saying it in the mirror first.

How to answer the “why are you single” question:
If you’re a great person who happens to be single you will get this question often. Especially if you let friends and family know you’re single and ready to date. Don’t be a “Debbie Downer” when answering this. Let people know what you’ve achieved while being single.
Know how to properly ask someone out:
This is crucial! Don’t do this over text message. The ability to ask for what you want will help you excel in all areas of your life. Women don’t be afraid to ask men out either. Example: “You seem like an amazing person, and I’d like to get to know more about you. Do you happen to be free on ____ or ___ at this time?” Narrow down their choices. If they’re interested you’ll have a “yes” within a few seconds. All they can say is no. Next!
The ability to know when someone isn’t interested:
It’s ok if that person doesn’t see how fabulous you are. As a single person we sometimes ask ourselves, “What’s wrong with me?” There’s nothing wrong with you because you’re single! The timing may not be right. Moving on is an art you’ll need to master as a single and fabulous dater!
Don’t take it personal:
In the dating game you’ll win some and lose some. Not taking things personally will benefit you in more ways than one. You’ll strike out a few times, kiss a couple of toads, and have to swipe your credit card to pay for a crappy first date. Don’t get discouraged! You’re actually one step closer to meeting someone great.
Never leave home in a bad mood:
It’s very important as a single person to know that even when you don’t think you’re looking to meet someone you actually are. People are attracted to those enjoying life. Running a mundane errand can turn into a chance encounter of meeting someone spectacular. Be ready to smile and mingle. Leave the moodiness to the bitter singles! Check your attitude at the door.
