Just ask Steve Ward, professional matchmaker and star of VH1s Tough Love, in which he helps single ladies ditch their destructive dating habits.
Ward says the biggest complaint he hears from singles is that theyre not attracting the type of partners they desire.
His tough love advice: Its not them, its you.
Ward suggests singles identify their own flaws before trying to date. Once they improve and love themselves, they can love others.
With thousands of successful matches under his belt, Ward is an expert on the art of dating.
He says the first date should always be a face-to-face encounter with real conversation.
This means coffee or dinner, not a busy nightclub or the movies.
He suggests eye contact and talk, talk, talk, to plant the seed for love.
Tough Love airs Sundays on VH1.
