We all have a tendency to be influenced by physical appearance. When you’re on a date, dress to your strengths. What do you feel you look good in? What do you feel confident in? An overall aura of confidence can boost any outfit. Rather than striving to dress to impress, consider what your clothes, hairstyle and overall appearance say about you. If you value yourself, then you should take pride with your appearance.
“When I go to a singles’ event, or even out on a date, I try to find an outfit where I look great, and feel like ‘me.’ I always say, there will always be girls who are dressed fancier than me, who are cooler than me, and who will be more attractive than me, but no one can be more “Rivky” than me. I wear what I feel strong in (obviously I feel the outfit will make a great first impression, as well); I just can’t spend my life trying to outdo someone else.”
“When a man came to my door and was unrecognizable from the photo I saw prior to our date, I was taken aback. Even after years of first encounters, there are things I still find mind-boggling. The photo was of a man dressed in a nice clean suit, with an inviting warm smile. But the man who came to my door was not the man I expected from the photo. The man at my door appeared washed out and ungroomed, which was very disappointing since I was well dressed and put-together.”
