How to Put Your Best Foot Forward on a First Date

Going on a first date is going to be nerve-wracking, no matter which way you look at it. You are meeting someone new for the first time, and you have no idea how you are going to get along or how your connection is going to develop.
Before you get to that point, you have to make a good first impression and most first impressions come from looks. As soon as you walk towards your date, you want them to be stunned by your outfit and the aura of confidence you exude. At the same time, you want to make sure that your first impression still represents you.

Follow this guide to make a great impression on your date, while still being you.

1. Dress Comfortably

If you are going to a fancy restaurant for dinner with your date, your first instinct will be to glam up and wear the best clothes you have. While you should dress for the occasion, you should also make sure that you will be comfortable in your clothes, and your shoes.

Even though high heels look great, if you are in pain for most of the night, you won’t be able to put your best self forward and it can taint your night for the worst. Choose a pair of shoes that both match your outfit and won’t leave you wincing with every step you take. People are perceptive. Your date will probably notice if you’re feeling off and you don’t want them to jump to the wrong conclusions.

2. Don’t Overdo It

Makeup can look great if you do it right. If you know that your skills with drawing eyeliner are shaky at best, but you still want to add it to your look, ask a friend to help you. They can help you calm your nerves beforehand as well by talking with you through any of your worries. They can also help you to choose an outfit that best represents you!

Not overdoing it also applies to the date itself. Coming across as interested is a good thing, but if it is only the first date, you don’t want to present yourself as clingy or overly invested straight away. You need to take some time to get to know each other first, and that takes more than a single date.

3. Treat Yourself

Dates bring out your nerves. Treat yourself to something new beforehand to give yourself that extra something. Grab yourself a new bottle of women’s perfume and spritz yourself with a delicious scent that you love before you leave to boost your confidence and calm you down. Fragrance also plays a role in attraction. If you want to attract your date even more, you should smell your best, but make sure it’s not overpowering.

First dates are full of new possibilities and if you follow these steps, you can make sure that you take hold of every single one and make the most of your new connection!
