4 Ways to End Your Sexual Dry Spell

When you're singing "I can't get no satisfaction"

You desperately need a makeover

Too tight clothes, try-too-hard outfits, frumpy clothes, an unflattering hairdo, clothes that disguise your best features... beauty might only be skin deep, but packaging is important. Yes, we all know it shouldn't be about what you look like. But he's never going to discover how fabulous you are unless he's attracted enough to talk to you in the first place! There are two classic mistakes long-term singles make. The first mistake is trying too hard: Turning up to a BBQ in heels, a dressy-dress with matching accessories and perfectly applied makeup won't have the cute single guy wanting to wrestle you on the grass. It reeks of desperation. On the other hand, there's the second mistake: giving up. Are you the one at the glitzy cocktail party in your work suit and no makeup? You're probably thinking: What's the point? No one's going to chat you up anyway. (Well, not if you're looking like that!)

The trick to looking attractive and approachable is to think casual sexy. If you've got the right bod, a cool pair of jeans, high heels and a sexy little top or sweater will take you almost anywhere. Most big department stores have a personal shopping service. Use it. Try on everything they bring you ‑- you might be surprised at what works. Next stop, a good hairdresser (opt for a casual style, not one that looks "done") and a visit to a professional makeup place: Get them to teach you good day and evening looks.
