Got a big date coming up? You better be prepared. You want to impress your date. Better yet, you want to turn up the allure big-time. If this is someone you’re getting serious with, you want to show them that. Even if you aren’t getting serious, it can’t help to take things up a notch or two. So what can you do to add that extra bit of charm? Here are a few ideas.
This is important. You want to look the best you can for your date. Some people don’t mind if their date is a little unkempt. Some even like it. To err on the safe side, it’s best to do a little bit of cleaning up. A good haircut is a nice touch for a date. A fresh haircut cannot be beaten. If you need to shave and remove a few unsightly hairs, go for it. Just neaten yourself up a little. It’s possible to clean yourself up and still retain a rugged look if that’s what you go for.
All five senses are at work on a date. If you’re going to look good, you should probably smell good too. Everybody should have a bottle of cologne somewhere in their house. Even if it only gets broken out on special occasions like this. Try not to get anything too tacky and overpowering. The best colognes are subtle but still smell great. When you go to buy your cologne, make sure to ask to try a few before you make a purchase. Find a smell that’s agreeable, but also suits you.
You can also get colognes with pheromones for men. The colognes work on the biological principles of pheromones. Pheromones are released by some animal species to attract mates. The idea is that these colognes can make you extra attractive by including pheromones.
While it depends on the type of date you’re going to, it’s always a good idea to put in some effort. That means you need to figure out what in your wardrobe is going to work best. Different people have different clothing styles. Your date is likely to have their opinions on dress sense too. So here’s the question, do you dress for their benefit or yours? Try and go with something you think they’ll like. After all, you’re the one trying to impress them aren’t you? Just don’t turn up at a high-class evening dinner restaurant in a t-shirt and jeans. Try a little harder than that.
Being cold and aloof on a date is a bad idea. Even if that’s generally how you are. You need to be warm and friendly. You need to be someone you can have a conversation with. If you’re not the best conversationalist, try doing a little practice in the mirror with telling a few jokes or anecdotes. If you’re struggling even with that, maybe seek some advice on how to open up a little more.
Hopefully, that’ll help you make a lasting positive impression. If you do well, it could even lead to another date after.
