You have a DATE! Friday night is coming up and you are dreading the
moment you will meet with your date for the first time. It doesn’t matter if
it’s a blind date or if you have met before; what matters is that it is your
first date. That first glance might determine your date’s outcome at the end of
the night, so it’s crucial to make an impeccable appearance!
You are alone for a while. You tried finding someone through your friends’
circles. You went to several parties. You attended a Speed Date session. You
registered online in several dating sites. And finally! You have a DATE! Friday
night is coming up and you are dreading the moment you will meet with your date
for the first time. It doesn’t matter if it’s a blind date or if you have met
before; what matters is that it is your first date. That first glance might
determine your date’s outcome at the end of the night, so it’s crucial to make
an impeccable appearance!
What to wear on your first date should not be a last minute task! Making a
good physical impression is the first rule in people’s communication pathways.
You might be intelligent and interesting but if you don’t dress like it you
might give the wrong message with your appearance. In other words what’s inside
should be depicted in the way you look as well. It’s not a matter of vanity or
super-ego. It’s a matter of respecting yourself and wanting to always present
yourself in the best possible way.
Some intellectual people say that what you wear does not matter as much as
what’s inside the “package”. Well imagine being in an auditorium, ready to make
a speech about financial investments. You appear in a sweat suit in front of
200 people and start your presentation. Do you think that people will don’t
mind you appearance and will only notice the important bullet points of your
elaborate PowerPoint presentation? . . . Hm, not likely! Appearance is very
Coming back to your date night. You should think ahead what look you are
going for. There are many factors you should consider. Please read carefully
some important points below:
You should dress according to your age. It’s
hilarious watching people in the street pretending to be something they
are not by wearing unsuitable clothes for their age. You need to be
comfortable with your clothes and they should be appropriate to your age.
You should wear clothes that fit your size. Many
people (especially women) might think they look sexier with tighter
clothes so they might buy something 1 or 2 sizes smaller. Believe me you
do NOT look sexier. You look “cheaper”.
Colors are also important. There are studies
proving that each colors depicts a different feeling or behavior. They say
that yellow promotes self-confidence, blue eases speech, green is the
color of emotions and red the color of sexual drive. Black is an ace in
your sleeve, especially if you date is at night. Nothing safer than
wearing a black outfit and accessorize it with jewelries or a scarf or a
purse in a different brighter color.
Shoes are also extremely important.
They should match your look. Not too high heels for the ladies, not flats
either. You should underline your femininity with nice elegant high heels
that will accessories your clothing nicely. For men it’s not a wise idea
to wear sneakers. It’s better to go with loafers which are nice and
Your outerwear is as important as the
clothes you will wear inside. You might decide to wear an expensive suit
or dress but if your coat is sporty or casual it will destroy the whole
Finally, it doesn’t matter if
you wear a designer outfit or a no-name ensemble. What matters is to wear the
clothes and not the clothes wearing you. You need to “own” your look so as to
present confidence. You need to allow your date to go past your appearance
after the first few awkward moments and get interested in the “gift” inside the
package as well.
“wrapping” might not be the most important aspect of a gift, but surely a nice
wrapping is quite inviting and promising for what’s inside the box!
