How to dress well for a date


Appearances count for a lot in dating, especially in the early stages of a relationship. Appearances can of course be deceptive, and the person you thought was your dream partner turns out to be a disappointment.

Some people look good with very little effort. For the rest of us, it pays to take care to dress up and look our best. If you take care about your appearance, you will feel good about the way you look and project confidence.

You can also put on a good outward show by preparing for your date. You are less likely to create the conditions for a successful encounter by not dressing up, arriving late and having no money.

These are some basic dos and don'ts about managing your appearance.

Keys to Improving Your Appearance
Take care to look your best Ignore your personal appearance
  Ask advice from friends about how to improve your looks   Fail to make an effort
  Dress appropriately for the occasion   Forget to take a bath or shower
  Make sure you are clean and smell nice   Imagine that appearances don’t count
  Try to feel good about yourself   Go on a date with dirty nails
  Radiate self-assurance   Fish for compliments
