Men – How To Sort Yourself Out For That All Important First Date!


Men – How To Sort Yourself Out For That All Important First Date! There are many articles and videos on the internet giving women advice on how to look their best when it comes to impressing their dates the first time they meet them, but you rarely see any advice for men on how to get themselves ready to ensure the first date goes as smoothly as possible. While you might not wear make up, it’s likely that you still have a routine to get yourself looking your best ready to face each day, and here are some tips and tricks on how to sort yourself out ready for that all important first date!

Buy flowers

While it isn’t necessary for a first date, it’s always a nice gesture to turn up to your date with flowers for your hopefully soon-to-be girlfriend. They don’t necessarily have to cost the earth either, just a token to give to them at the beginning of the date to make them feel special. Believe me, it will go a long way!

Scrub up

Next on the list is scrubbing up so that you can look tip top for your date. Here are a few all important areas to concentrate on:

  • Hair and beard – Get yourself a new trim and give your beard a shave. Whether you’re usually clean shaven or you’ve got a beard, giving it a trim will go noticed. Of course, shaving is not without risk, so make sure that you’re using electric trimmers that aren’t going to leave you with a shaving rash or even worse, cuts on your face.
  • Breath – whether you notice it or not, everyone has a distinctive smell on their breath and the last thing you want is to have bad breath on your first date (especially if the moment happens that you get a chance for a kiss!). Make sure that you thoroughly clean your teeth and use mouthwash before your date, and if you’re especially self conscious, take chewing gum to freshen your breath.
  • Clothes – One of the worst first impressions to give off are creased clothes. Whether or not you iron your clothes for every day is up to you, but for your first date make sure that your attire is neatly pressed and matching. Depending on where you’re going, a simple pair of nice jeans and a shirt will do the job nicely.

Remember that women like to be woo’d

Before your date, make sure that you’re reminding yourself of how to treat your date so that you can give off a killer first impression. If you’re going out to eat, be sure to pull the chair out and offer to take her coat. Treat her like she desires to be treated and you will be onto a winner.

Another way to woo your date is by complimenting her on how she looks. There’s a high chance that she has spent hours trying to get ready for this date and is feeling super self conscious about the way that she looks. Picking up on small details that she has clearly spent time on will make her feel good!

Make sure that you are practising good table manners too if you’re eating on your date because as you will probably agree, there’s nothing worse than watching someone eat and feeling disgusted by the way that they are eating! Here are some great tips on how to eat gracefully on a date.

Be yourself

Finally, while you’re understandably wanting to concentrate on impressing your date, you also need to remember to be yourself. Many men and women make the mistake of trying to be the perfect person, and then later on discovering things about each other that don’t quite sit right. Ask genuine questions and give honest answers to the questions that you are asked so that you can really get a feel for whether this person is compatible with you. Most of all, don’t forget to smile! A smile is the best kind of make up or outfit that anyone can wear as it immediately changes your entire face!

All of this information might seem like a lot, but if you think about it, it all boils down to a few simple things:

  • Scrubbing up nicely so that you can feel and look your best for your date.
  • Complimenting her so that she feels good.
  • Keeping up with good manners
  • Being yourself
  • Smiling

Do all of these things and you will find that your first date goes well. Remember that people aren’t always compatible no matter how hard you try, but if you make a good first impression you could find yourself in romantic bliss very soon!
