Think of yourself as a great book! On a first date, just cover the introduction, not every chapter.
- Don't wear your blue tooth during a date.
- Turn your cell phone off or put on silent if you must leave it on.
- Don't send your date text messages across the table.
- Don't talk on your cell phone while you're waiting for your date to arrive; it makes for an uncomfortable introduction.
- Never send text messages at the table to your friends giving the status on how your date is going.
- Dress to Impress! Getting ready for the first date should be fun! If you like the way you look in the mirror, you will project an aired of confidence, which anyone would find attractive.
- Dress appropriately - it is better to be overdressed than under dressed.
- Wear something that you look and feel your best in.
- Wear clothes that are clean, pressed and fit well.
- Dress your best, but be comfortable in whatever you are wearing.
- Wear your favorite color; it says a lot about your personality.
- Don't wear too much perfume or cologne. A strong scent can be offensive.
- Wear that one outfit you own that you know you look great in and feel HOT!
- It's sexy!
- It allows you to relax and have fun.
- It means you take rejection lightly and not personally.
- It makes it clear that you are not desperate.
- It means you're content with yourself, your looks and your life - which only makes you more attractive.
