Looks Are Just Part of It

When choosing someone to ask out on a date, think about that person's character as well as their looks.

Have Something in Common

This will give you a starting place for conversation when that dreaded embarrassing silence takes place.

Take Your Time and Don't be Shy

Here's one for the girls. Be a little slow about pursuing that great guy. Yes, girls and boys are equals to a certain extent, but for some reason guys are just wired to do the pursuing.

Be friendly. Smile a lot because everyone is more attractive when they smile. Be interesting too. One of the best dating tips for teens you'll ever get is to be the kind of person you want to date.

Shyness is a real problem for both boys and girls. If you're shy, go to some group activities. Learn to give a friendly smile even if you are afraid to strike up a conversation. It will happen before you know it.

Everyone, especially teens, dream of meeting that special someone.

Marriage is very difficult once you're in it, even if you are perfectly matched.
