Being a new relationship is exciting, and our friends at The Dating Project said it best:
At one point in your life—or life experience—you will know someone who has dated someone. If you never talk about it, I beg you to at least fess up to that fact. At best, you may learn something valuable. At worst, you may witness the formation of an awesome relationship. Honestly, as a relationship expert and also a single woman in a 40-and-over crowd, I can’t even tell you how many times I’ve gone home after a first date and come back with something like, “Hey guys, the guy who looks like Johnny Depp—is that your brother?” or “That guy is actually that hot actor, Paul Bettany.” Dating is part social experience and part net worth acquisition. It’s fun, it’s entertaining, and, if you’re like the people who love to play the field, it can even be cheap. But if you’re looking to meet someone and do something sustainable, then what you’re really looking for is someone who can take care of you, through life, and also invest in you in the present and the future, so you can grow and also make money. Fortunately, dating is a natural part of life, and here are a few reasons why you should definitely have fun and not take it too seriously.
1) You already know who you’re attracted to.
Your body just knows. It’s hard to explain—a lot of it is biology, and a lot of it is experience—but we instinctively know what we are attracted to and the people who evoke those feelings. When you first start seeing someone, those feelings come out in a rush of hormones and it’s intoxicating. But over time, and with experience, those feelings begin to wane and you start getting comfortable with a certain person. When that happens, you tend to notice other, smaller things—like looks, personality, and conversation—that also get you attracted. Basically, when you get comfortable with someone, your attraction turns into a more refined look for them: a great smile, great clothes, wonderful hair, and the like. Most of us walk around with this list on our phone and we go to great lengths to make sure we look our best—and even our weirdest— https://www.uralsk-ladies.com/are_russian_girls_on_onlyfans_-_adult_dating_in_eastern_europe.html
Dating is a very personal, very social thing. It requires a lot of upfront confidence, some excellent conversation skills, and a bit of common sense—not to mention an understanding of how to make yourself irresistible to others. (Believe it or not, there’s an art to looking good and flirting.) With these sure-fire tips, you will be sure to have the best time at the most important party of the year.
1. Dress For Success.
Dating is all about confidence, but you can’t be completely confident if you’re wearing a t-shirt and sweatpants. You’ve got to invest a little time and money into your appearance. No woman wants to go out and feel like she looks like she rolled out of bed.
Depending on your style, you can do some shopping for pretty clothes at your local store, or head to your favorite online site. It’s also a good idea to go shopping as soon as you get into town, even if you’re not that confident. You’re going to have a lot of people judging how you look, so you want to be dressed appropriately. If you head out to a busy retail area, you can get a sneak peek at the fashions of the season, but it’s a good idea to come up with your perfect look ahead of time, as many retail sites send out fashion updates daily.
On the other hand, if you know you’re going out with a group of friends, you don’t need to dress to impress. (And while we’re on the subject of dressing to impress, don’t put too much thought into that—that’s for you to worry about.) But this is a good opportunity to practice your conversation skills, especially if your and your friends’ style of dress is wildly different. If you’re the only one wearing a skirt, that’s not a good way to represent yourself. If everyone’s decked out in suits, or if you and the group you’re going with are similar in terms of style, then you can wear whatever makes you feel good.
2. Always Be Prepared.
One of the most important things to do to be successful on a first date is to be prepared in all aspects of life—especially fashion-wise. Always bring a spare outfit, a backup blouse or blazer, and just-in-case accessories. This can include:
A blouse for that “I can change into something else if I want to”
