I’m going to be sacrilegious for a minute given that I’m a relationship coach who writes a lot about love and relationships: Honestly, you don’t need more dating advice. More knowledge won’t serve you. What you need is action. If you’re reading this right now, chances are good that there’s a longing in your heart. It might be a small, niggling feeling that something is missing. It might be a strong fire of yearning and dissatisfaction.
Nobody thinks they have an unreasonable relationship checklist when looking for a partner. I talk with singles about their relationship life just about every day, and this is a common occurrence:I’ve been looking, but there aren’t many good guys out there! So what do you want in a partner? Well, he needs to be tall and have a good job. He needs to treat me like a lady. I don’t want to have sex right away, but I want sexual chemistry…He can’t be too young because they aren’t serious.
I’m always growing, and one of the most exciting evolutions in my life recently has been the move toward simplicity. Many years ago I interviewed Michael Fogler, the author of the book, Un-Jobbing. The book was largely about simplifying life so you could focus more on what mattered. At the time, the book didn’t stick. Neither did the other titles I read on voluntary simplicity. There was too much emphasis on things like making your own mayonnaise and pulling out from society.

Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used). For example, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
