The first date is a big night for any man. A great way to start your date off on beauty right foot is to make sure you show up well groomed and put together. Presenting your self as a mature and responsible adult is as easy as taking time to groom your self and put together a date worthy outfit. These tips should help you successfully prepare for your first date and may even help you secure a second and a third.
- Grooming and HygieneTaking care of yourself, making sure everything is clean, well trimmed, shaved, styled or shaped is important. Hygiene and grooming are a must for health reasons but beyond that they are also an important part of making a good impression. A women wants to know the man she is with knows how to take care of himself. When you go on any date, be it your first or fiftieth, make sure you always do the following things.
- Shave or Groom Facial Hair
- Brush Your Teeth
- Deciding What to Wear
Taking care of your self means you’re a healthy and responsible adult, but your duties don’t stop there. You need to be able to present your self in a fashion that shows you are mature and have everything together. Women want to know they are dating a peer not inheriting a child who need mothering. How do you show her you are in fact a mature adult? The best way to do this on a first date is to dress the part.
Deciding what to wear can be quite the ordeal, but there are a few ways to help you choose the appropriate attire. Ask your self what type of date it is or where you will be spending the day or evening. If it is a semi casual date, maybe dinner and a movie, your best bet is either casual khaki’s or a pair of dark designer denim. Both choices are dressy enough to go to dinner yet not so formal that you appear stuffy. Depending on your particular style, you can choose a button down shirt, a polo, or a sweater. Unless this date is extremely casual, T-shirts should be saved for later on in your relationship.
You can spend all day picking out the perfect outfit only to have it sabotaged by a poorly chose pair of shoes. We all know that sneakers are far more comfortable than shoes, but so is going bare foot and I doubt you’d do lingerie Chances are, she is donning a pair of heels or at least nice shoes for your first date meaning you need to make the sacrifice and throw on a nice pair of casual yet classy shoes. This doesn’t mean you need to spend a fortune on a brand new pair of designer oxfords, but it does mean you should leave the sneakers or the worn out slip-ons at at home. When choosing shoes for your first date think business casual.
- Pulling it All Together
You’ve brushed your teeth, styled your hair, you’ve found the perfect outfit and now you’re ready for the big date – or are you? Just because you have your clothing and grooming accounted for doesn’t mean your ready just yet. Believe it or not, accessories are a huge part of completing your outfit. Think your girl friends are nuts when they take a few moments to find matching purses, bracelets, and earrings? Think again. Accessories tie your outfit together and help you personify the image of being a well put together man. A watch, bracelet, belt, or necklace can add a little more depth to your wardrobe and show you pay attention to detail.
Now that you know how to look the part, the only thing left for you to do is act the part. Act confident, mind your manners, be your self and treat her with respect. With a some know how and a little luck you’ll be well on your way to a second date!
