You may just be looking to casually date, or you may want to find something more seriously, but whichever way you're leaning, there are some great old wives' tales that can help you bring more love into your life. Bustle put the list together, and I think they are worth trying!

  • Let your family help because for most people, no one knows you better than your mother does, or your sibling. They grew up with you, so for better or for worse, they know you pretty darn well and probably know who would be a good fit for you.
  • Strike up conversations with strangers, and I can attest that this works. Almost five years ago now, my now-fiancé was standing next to me at the bar ordering drinks and he struck up a conversation about the Winter Olympics playing on the television screen above the bar... and look where we are now!
  • Get out of the house which I understand can be difficult to find time to do things other than work or school, but seriously, there is no better feeling than meeting someone in real life that you connect with (even more than swiping left or right from the comfort of your cozy bed). How else can you meet people if you don't go outside and actually meet them?

So if you're looking for Mr. or Mrs. "The One", or just someone to go get coffee with every once in a while, it may be worth taking some of these old wives' tales more seriously because they can definitely help you out!
