    1. Be honest. What are you looking for? Does the other party know that. Communicate your needs so no one will waste their time.

    2. Be consistent. That means just what it sounds like. Continue to do the things that got you your significant other once you've got them. It is important that you are the same person when you meet as you are on date three if you expect any growth.
