Aside from eHarmony, Match, and the Fish thing...there must be ways to date especially if you are divorced or recovering from a long-term relationship.

Love is mysterious, but it's probably not destiny.

According to the research, your hormones, interests, and upbringing all help determine who you fall for — and who falls for you.

The experts say these are weird science-backed things you can do to make someone fall for you . . .

1.  Get coffee together.  A first date at Tim Hortons or Starbucks might not be a bad idea.  A recent study found that when people hold a warm drink, they're more likely to say the person they're talking to has a warm personality.

2.  Get a dog.  Apparently women are more likely to want a long-term relationship if a guy has a dog.  It might show they can handle commitment.

3.  Learn an instrument.  A study in France found women were more likely to give a guy their number if he was just HOLDING a guitar case. Unless you are wearing a pin-striped suit and look like Al Capone.

Don't look to me for advice, I am wading through this process myself..going thru the "self" process.  Self examination, self doubt... eating by myself, walking by myself LOL you get the idea.
