Hollywood star uses dating manual to lure in man

Gossip Girl stunner Blake Lively, 23, turned to the cult dating tome, 'The Rules,' to lure in new boyfriend Leonardo DiCaprio.

Hollywood star Leo, 36, is said to be smitten with his new lady, and friends are claiming that this is due to Blake's 'perfect playing of the dating rulebook.’

The bestselling book, which was published in 1995, advises daters on how to hook a partner. Some of the advice handed out by authors Ellen Fein and Sherrie Schneider includes not returning phone calls for a few days, making a man jealous and not dating a man for over two years.

“You've already spent more than a year waiting for him to propose; do you have another year to wait?” say the authors.

A close friend of Blake's told Now Magazine, “Blake loves dating book The Rules and has been following it to the letter. She knew Leo could have any girl he wanted and she figured she had to stand out from the crowd."

“Blake told him he had to break up with Bar before she'd even go on a date with him, so he did. She's making him work for it - and he's fallen hard for her,” added the friend.
