Love Broker has Jennifer Zucher, the founder of Project Soulmate and one of the stars of Bravo’s ‘Love Broker,’ breaking down the March 12 episode — plus, find out why you should compliment yourself every day!

At the beginning of the second episode of Love Broker, we met with Dana, who had a break up that left him down and out. You’d think he would be eager to find a new partner, but when it came to his visual impression, he couldn’t quite put his finger on anyone. Physical attraction is the first part of a relationship; before you know anything about anybody you’re attracted to the way they look. In Dana’s case, his pickiness was a façade for his vulnerability. He was searching for someone in his past, which brings us to rule number one: Don’t ever try to replace someone from the past with someone in the present. Dana will never meet a woman who looks just like his ex, and he’ll never find anyone like her, period.

Everyone is different; that’s what makes us individuals. If you’re trying to replace your ex with your current partner, perhaps you’d be better off taking some time to fall in love with yourself before you attempt to fall in love with someone else.

Then we took Jesse, a traffic reporter with scruff, to our image consultant Amanda Sanders who recommended a little manscaping. After Jesse’s shave, we discovered he’s a really handsome guy sans the perpetual 5 o’clock shadow. But his confidence was at stake, too. Men, please be confident. Confidence is what makes a person attractive and approachable.

If you are one of the people who lack that trait, take my advice: Tell yourself 20 times a day that you’re attractive. Better yet, find a part of your body that you absolutely love and tell yourself  “I love my…” and you’ll find that when you start to tell it to yourself, others will notice your fabulous traits, too.

Girls, when your date asks you about yourself, don’t give single line answers. The more depth, the easier the conversation will flow because he can go off the information you just gave him and learn some more. In regard to Jesse, when he finally relaxed, we saw he had the potential to be super charming and quite the catch, IF he used some of our tools!

Gentlemen, PLEASE don’t leave your girl waiting! This whole “three-day rule” is a figment of your imagination. If you call a girl the next day, nobody will think you’re needy or crazy. The truth is, if you’re interested, simply communicate, and you’ll get a positive response if the feeling is mutual!

Tune in next Monday at 10pm ET for an all-new episode!
