Top tips for modern romance
* Be proactive – if you want to find love, get out there and do something about it.
* Always look your best. Ditch the comfort-wear – there's always somebody looking.
* Always smile on your first date. Go dancing – the activity and the music can help lighten the mood in those awkward early moments.
* Never, ever lose hope.
If you dislike the heavy drinking scene try joining an organisation, like a drama club or Toastmasters, the educational organisation – both are great ways to meet new people.
* Never discuss past relationships on a date.
* Never leer at your date.
* Never drink more than two alcoholic drinks on a date.
* Always maintain eye contact.
