NEW YORK (MYFOXNY) - Love may be as old as time, but the ways people share love and expect to get it in return, is different today.

Daniel Jones, the Modern Love columnist for the New York Times, and author of a new book, 'Love Illuminated Exploring Life's Most Mystifying Subject (With the Help of 50,000 Strangers)' knows all the weird things people are doing for love.

Among the non-conventional things couples do to maintain passion in marriage: schedule sex, schedule date night and commit to hugging each other ten times a day for ten seconds each.

Beyond the unusual, Jones says there are several things to keep in mind to find love and to do while in love:

Destiny:
"I think it's good to believe in destiny once you're with the person. But in the beginning if you believe in destiny, it makes you overly focused on someone being perfect."

Soul mate:

"It's earned over time. You become someone's soul mate over time. You don't go out looking for a soul mate."

Looking for love:

"Don't try to pre-judge who you might try to fall in love with and don't try to fall in love with people by categories as online dating makes you do. Meet real people rather than online profiles," says Jones.

    Long Island native Madison Beer seems to be walking the same path to super-stardom as her mentor - and the person who discovered her- Justin Bieber. The pop star was on YouTube one day and found a video of Beer singing 'At Last' by Etta James. "I posted a YouTube video when I was 12 about to turn 13 and then Scooter and Justin had gotten in contact with my mom. She was like you're Justin  Bieber, right, right," said Beer about the moment that changed her life.

    At least a dozen scathing reviews were printed about Robert F. Kennedy Jr.'s new book on a preservative used in vaccines before it was released. It's not fair, says Kennedy Jr., and he explained why during Good Day New York. "They attacked me for what they believed was going to be in the book which was a discussion about autism and that is not in the book," said Kennedy Jr.
