How to be Smarter: You are not a little girl, so don't date a man that acts like a little boy. How to be Prettier: My favorite boots to skitter around in the rain in--love the color and the newly marked down price.
How to be (less) Awkward: If you need advice about your long-term significant other, ask someone who is in a strong relationship you admire. If you need advice about how to go on a first date, ask someone who is a successful serial dater. Tailor who you are asking questions to their area of expertise.
