1. Get out there! Have a social life. You will never find true love if you don't socialize and meet new people. Go places with your friends, enjoy yourself. You don't have to go looking for love, but get out there hoping that love will find you! Have a great time and love will come right to your door! Here is a great little piece of advice. If you don't want to meet an alcoholic, don't hang out in bars. Sure, there are great guys in bars and clubs, but most of them are there for the drinking. If you don't want to meet a total nerd, don't hang out at a computer programmer convention. Joking aside, find the places where your types of guys hang out. You will be more likely to find someone you really identify with.
2. Be who you are. Don't try to change yourself in order to find true love. You will not be able to find someone who loves you for you if you are being someone else! Show your own traits and charms and wait for the person who loves each one of those traits and charms! It's like putting an ad in the paper. You can dress up your old car to make it sound like a brand new piece of machinery, but why not be truthful and wait for that person who wants nothing other than a fine classic automobile?
3. Look at your options! You might be desperate for love. However, entering a relationship before you're ready could be the biggest mistake you will ever make. Most relationships that start out this way do not last and only create problems for the future. Be sure you truly like someone before starting a relationship with them. Spend time with him and find out what kind of person he is before you decide if you want to take things further.
4. Don't be afraid of blind dates and matchmakers! While many people are too nervous to go out on dates that their friends set them up with, you shouldn't. Just go into it expecting to have a great time and you may be surprised.
True love is not necessarily something you can go out and hunt down - it's usually something you stumble into before you realize what's going on. The key is to be able to tell the difference between the guy that might make your ego bigger and the guy that makes your heart skip a beat! However, following the tips above may help you stumble faster! Good luck.
