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.

    Wedding gown found 2 years after storm

    Two years ago, Nicole Pagliaro of Staten Island dropped off her wedding gown to be cleaned and preserved at a local dry cleaner when superstorm Sandy hit. The store was destroyed and Pagliaro assumed so had been her dress.  As her wedding anniversary approached, Pagliaro and her husband drove by another dry cleaner in town and saw the gown in the store's window. “I held on to the ticket because this was my only connection to my wedding dress,” said Pagliaro.
