Relationship Dilemmas 101:
DEAR SERENA: What’s the best way to dress for a date? I always end up looking too casual, or overdoing it. I need help! —Clueless in the Closet
SW: It’s really important to be yourself, since your true colors will show through in the end. And always add heels!
DEAR SERENA: Sometimes when I begin dating a new guy, I start doubt ing myself and feel my initial confidence (which helped snag him in the first place!) slip away. How do I keep up my self- esteem? —Doubtful Debbie
SW: First you need to identify where the self-doubt is coming from. I think that goes back to always being yourself from the beginning. Be confident of your inner strength and beauty, and that will be reflected on the outside. My mom always taught my sisters and me to be ourselves and to stay true to who we are.
DEAR SERENA: I’m really sporty, and my boyfriend’s just…not. Any ideas on how we can bridge the gap and get active? —Track Star
