Go on a Date

Don’t wait for the perfect candidate. You need to remind yourself that you can, and will, go out with other men again.

“When it comes to your dating skills and your sex life ‘use it or lose it’ applies,” says Amy Levine, sex coach and founder of “While you don’t need to go out with a total dud, don’t say no to a dude that could be a Mr. Maybe or a Mr. Right Now – even if it’s just a one shot deal.”

The idea is to keep your libido humming. Another way is to develop a crush. Whether it’s on a celeb or the IT guy from your office, find someone to direct sexual energy at (even if it’s in secret).
