Come out of the dark place you’ve been hiding for 6 months! While cold weather, jumpers and thick soup probably haven’t filled you with confidence, it’s time to get ready for spring, so ditch any old clothes and go and get some new spring dresses, skirts and heels. And get a wax, and a haircut... might as well have a full revamp, right?

Do you always go for geeks, sporty men, or cat owners? Mix it up a bit, and let go of your judgements with your baggage. Give someone completely different a chance, and see where it goes. Your checklist of the ideal man might be badly out of date...

5 Stop Looking

Go out and have fun! It’s true, thebest relationships start when neither party is looking, so arrange some days out (at parks, near football matches?) and go have fun. There is nothing sexier than a girl looking happy and having fun!

6 Go for It!

Make the first move. Ask him out, kiss him first, confess your feelings, mention a night away. Confidence is sexy, and once you’ve let go of all your baggage and past hurts, you should be ready to try again. So don't be afraid to go for it!

7 Let Go

Get over your past breakups, leave exes in the past, and get rid of anything that reminds you of them. If you are meant to be together, you will be, but moping is just a waste of your time. And who knows who could be walking past while you are thinking about the past? Live in the future, and relax in the knowledge that what will be will be.

8 Network

Be a social butterfly, and do different things with different people. Join a walking group, meet new people, hang out with different friends. The more you network, the more interesting people you will meet!

9 Chill out

Don’t analyze his every move, the kisses on his texts, or what he calls you. Simply go with it, and enjoy yourself. Taking the pressure off actually makes dating fun!Tell your friends to stop you from analyzing, and keep busy, or even keep some mystery and don’t share everything. Just enjoy the time you spend with him and see how it goes!

Spring cleaning can be so rejuvenating! I made a friend try these tips last week, and after she spent the day letting go, and the next 6 following these, she felt confident and ready for summer. Not to mention the three dates she’s now got. Have you got a tip for spring cleaning your love life? Please share it with me!
