New "Bachelor" announced: Dating lessons from "The Bachelor"

It's official; Sean Lowe is back! After being rejected by Bachelorette Emily Maynard, the chiseled heart throb is back and this time he's in control. Premiering in January 2013 on ABC, Lowe, an insurance salesman, has admitted to US Weekly that he's not sure he'll find love on a reality show but he's willing to give it another try. Perhaps Lowe will rely on the dating lessons he learned from his first stint on "The Bachelor." Take some tips from this hit reality show and find your own brand of true love.

Exotic locales doesn't make love real. Over the almost 20 seasons of "The Bachelor" and "The Bachelorette," we've seen couples hook up at hot spots only to split up later. Paris at night or the white sands of Bermuda can influence a dater's romantic senses, lending an air of love that's not really there. Cool hookup locations don't guarantee romantic success.

Keep your options open. Unlike "The Bachelor," he's not the only guy on the island. It's healthy to keep your dating options open. Setting your cap on the same guy that 25 other girls are stalking isn't a good plan. There's plenty of fish in the sea!

Looking desperate is a turnoff. He hates it when she whines. She's turned off when he pleads. Here's a hint: men and women hate that! Don't look desperate. Look confident and be self-assured. He won't be able to resist that attitude.

Put him in a competition. If you seem too "easy," he'll take you for granted. That's a lesson we've learned from the dating show. Make your next date a competitive one! Join a ball league; invite a flirty friend over for your date night barbecue. Do something to show him that he's got some healthy competition.

Honesty is always the best policy. Ever watch the show and cringe when a contestant lies about their personal life or tells a lie about another contestant? It makes good television but that's not a good policy for building a relationship. Be honest, or as honest as you can, about how you feel.
