Tennis isn’t the only topic that Serena Williams is an expert at! The record breaking tennis star is featured in the February issue of Harper’s Bazaar and she’s playing the role of ‘Love Doctor’! Is she qualified? Of course she is- just check her resume and you may find the names of a few high profile guys like Drake or perhaps Common! Serena is answering readers questions on anything from how to dress for a date to how to boost self-esteem when dating someone new.
Here’s a few hints on love that Serena blessed the readers with below and for the full editorial make sure you pick up the February issue of Harper’s Bazaar.
On the best way to dress for a date: It’s really important to be yourself, since your true colors will show through in the end. And always add heels!
On keeping up the self-esteem when dating someone new: 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.
On getting your partner involved in sports: Suggest doing lightly sporty things, such as walking, and stress the importance of a healthy lifestyle. And think of activities that you can do with your man.
On how to handle a non-stylish man: Show him images from magazines and Pinterest that you think would look nice on him, but more important, make sure that you like who he is as a person. I like a man who has a unique style. I’d hate for him to fit into a mold or to blend in with the other guys.
On making Valentine’s Day special: I don’t celebrate Valentine’s Day, but I think you should try to make every day special. It’s the little things that count.
On how to be sexy and strong: Being sexy is really about how you carry yourself. Strength and confidence equal sexy.
