Wondering how you can open up when meeting someone new? Our dating guru, Siggy Flicker, lays out the solution, step-by-step.

1. Showing vulnerability doesn't make you weaker. Open up and express your true feelings.

2. Don't try to find romance when you're with other single friends. You'll end up talking to one another.

3. On nights when you're looking for a guy, go out alone or with a taken friend who can be your wingwoman.

4. Engage in activities that connect you to your softer side. Try yoga and meditation and get massages.
