Guys, you’re about to go on that “first date”, that “blind date”, or maybe you are reuniting with that love you have been away from for awhile, as is my situation. Now, most guys will pick out a nice outfit, grab a shower, brush the nuggets (teeth for those of you who have never heard that), and after getting dressed throw on some cologne (probably the same stale cologne you have had since college).
Well hear ye hear ye; time to add some class and dress it up a bit, and when I say up, I mean all of IT! Here are the top 10 things the ladies are looking for when they meet you, greet you, see you again! (Left pictures = good; right pictures = bad!!)
- Be Dressed Up But Not Over the Top
Look, we have all done it; got excited about this date or meeting, ran into the closet or shoveled through the drawers to find something hip to wear. She doesn’t want hip right now that comes later. Take the time to throw on some slacks, grab a fresh pressed button up, and rock it, especially if you are meeting at a nice restaurant. If the location is more casual, then go with some darker jeans, a button up un-tucked, maybe the sleeves rolled up a couple turns. OWN THE OUTFIT!
- Have a Nice Pair of Shoes
So we have this sleek outfit picked out but we go through the closet and throw on our black Vans! WAIT, WHAT? Oh Hello NO!! After she looks us down and gets to some gungy broke ass shoes, her wheels start turning and her “What-ifs” are in overdrive! You should be sporting a nice pair of dark dress shoes with those dark pants, or some dressier type shoes/boots. NO TENNIS SHOES!! The shoes will complete the outfit and if you half ass that, what else does she thing you will half ass.
- Fresh Groomed Hair is Sexy
The ladies are digging the fresh haircut! If you are rockin the locks, at least clean them up, she will be looking for that not taken care of look. Wash that mop, style it, and rock it, FRESH! If you have the short hair, get it trimmed, clean up the neck, and rock it!
- Rock the Facial Hair
Facial hair is in! Bottom line….it comes second to Tequila in regards to droppin panties! Hey, just stating the facts. Internet said so, so it must be true! Seriously, if you are rockin the facial hair, then clean it up, shave the neck, checks, and keep it classy.
- Don’t Sport the Chia Pet
New Flash! Chicks aren’t digging the Chia pet popping out of the top of your shirt. They may however, enjoy rolling fingers through the chest hair, but don’t tip your hand up front with clavicle koala! Let it be a surprise!
- Take Care of the Gardening
When I say the Gardening, I don’t mean prune the hedges out front; I’m talking about Manscaping! Guys, the ladies clean up downtown for numerous reasons, one of which is to please their men, keep things…….clean if you will. Mutual respect fellas! If you don’t want to take it all off, then trim it down to not trap small animals, she won’t dig that….AT ALL! The shorter the garden, the better the reaction.
- Smell Like Greatness
Run out to Macy’s or Dillard’s and pick up a nice bottle of cologne. Take a girlfriend with you, buddy’s wife, co-worker, just someone of the opposite sex. Here’s why; you have to try it on, colognes smell great in the bottle, but when you put your own body chemistry and smell to it, it changes the smell. With that second opinion, you are sure to get the one that smells right on you. When she nestles up for that hello hug, that close slow dance, or good-bye hug, it will be a slam-dunk.
- Be Confident – Not Cocky
You have done all the things to this point to look good so OWN IT! Don’t be some cocky ass, know you look good, feel good, and smell good, and exude that confidence as you move through the date. She will love it.
- Know Your Wines
It’s not about the Budweisers or the Jack and Cokes anymore, the ladies are digging the wine. The US has moved up to the largest consumer of wines in the last couple of years. Understand the differences of what wines to pair with what meats, and what is sweet vs. dry, etc. Doesn’t take long to make yourself smart, and she will truly appreciate that level of sophistication.
10. Tidy up the House
Well, congratulations! You made it through the night; you impressed her and now…your back at your place! Take the time before you get ready to get your house ready. You never know what may come, worst case you come home alone or drunk and alone, at least you wont’ be tripping over your running shoes! When she sees your well-kept house, what will she want to see next?
Ok guys, I’m by no means the expert, but I get some pretty solid feedback from the gorgeous lady who I am with. I read countless articles to continue self improvement/refinement, and to educate myself on how to continue to make her happy. Trust me, do at least 50% of these and you will see significant improvements in how you’re perceived.
