Here’s how to make that air of mystery work to your advantage in the early dating days

1. Express yourself

Madonna sang about it, and it might as well be the oldest advice in the book.

Dr. Gail Saltz, psychiatrist and the host of “The Power of Different” podcast, says, “You are an interesting and complex person with multiple areas of interest; share them.
