What Does Your Appearance Say About You?

We’ve all heard the expression, “First impressions count”. It’s been said about interviews and business meetings, but did you know that it applies to dating as well?

Dress for the occasion

If you are meeting your date at a restaurant you haven’t been to before, it is worth doing some prior research on the vibe of the restaurant.  If you are ever in doubt always dress up rather than down. It is important to put effort into your attire to let the other person know you care about how you present yourself.


Grooming standards can vary for different people. It’s often seen, that men can get away with looking presentable in a matter of minutes.  You’ve thrown on your best shirt and trousers, even thrown on your nice shoes. But wait, did you check your teeth before you left the house? Even if little details like some food in your teeth may not seem so important to you, your date might think otherwise. Women generally look for little details to find out what you are like when in your personal life. Remember that grooming is not just about looking good, but also about feeling confident and comfortable in your own skin. By taking care of yourself and presenting yourself in the best possible way, you'll be more likely to have a successful and enjoyable date.


If you are ever in doubt about what you should wear to a date, try and remember that your outfit should reflect who you are and make you feel comfortable and confident. The most important thing to remember is to be yourself!
