Adam Levine, who's been linked to stars like Jessica Simpson and Natalie Portman, is now dishing up dating advice.

His first tip on getting noticed: stand out from the crowd.

"Say or do something that's out of the ordinary," the 30-year-old says in the August issue of Seventeen magazine. "It's not about what perfume you're wearing or if your shoes are cute. If you do something with purpose that is different than what everybody else does, then it makes you stand out."

The Maroon 5 frontman, who is currently on tour with his band to promote their latest album (It Won't Be Soon Before Long), also reveals what he consideres major turn-offs: not making eye contact, a lack of self-confidence and drama.

"I've been with girls who are very dramatic, and to me it's a waste," he says. "When there's constant drama all the time, it's such a drain on your energy."

Levine also admits in the article that he is isn't attracted to only one type and that he believes in love at first sight.

And to answer one of the great mysteries of dating – how to judge a man's intentions – Levine says women can trust their friends. "They can provide an unbiased opinion of a guy you like, and if an overwhelming majority of your friends don't like him, chances are he's a moron and you shouldn't date him," he says.

Another secret? Pay attention to a man's relationship with his mother. "I'm a mama's boy," he admits. "That's why I'm nice."
