Sound too obvious to be said, right? One would like to think so. It is difficult to comprehend, but despite the obvious importance we attach to dating, some of us cannot seem to motivate ourselves to dress to suit the occasion. If you are not convinced of your own dress-sense, make sure to get input from someone who understands these things.
It is not just not showing up in scuffed shoes or a wrinkled shirt, it is also about style of dress. Casual dress is usually a bad idea, whether a man or a woman – especially on the earlier dates. Hair and make-up and should be chosen with thought (too much detail to go into here). Accessories – especially eye glasses – can be a big turn-off, so make sure they are suitable.
