While it might seem a bit daunting at first, sexologist Shannon Boodram assures us that finding a connection face-to-face simply requires a little strategy when it comes to isolating the qualities you're looking for in a partner, choosing places where you're most likely to meet that person, and finding a respectful way to approach someone who catches your eye. Oh, and making sure you're frequenting spots where everyone in the crowd won't have their head buried in their phones definitely helps, too. Check out the video below to hear Shannon's full answers to all our questions about dating IRL.
