Another essential thing to remember when picking out a first date outfit is pick out something you’re comfortable in. If you feel comfortable in your outfit, you’ll act comfortable too! If you’re going on a daytime date, try to wear something casual. For women, I recommend wearing boyfriend-style jeans and a nice sweater. Throw on a scarf as a nice, casual accessory. For the men, try wearing a patterned dress shirt
with a nice pair of jeans for a stylish, yet casual look. If your date takes place in the evening, you’ll want to dress up your outfit. For the ladies, I suggest wearing a bell-sleeve blouse with dark-washed skinny jeans. Put on a pair of over-the-knee boots to elevate your date-night look. For the gentlemen, throw on blazer over a cashmere sweater with a nice pair of khaki pants to impress your date.
Dating etiquette is by far the most crucial aspect of a first date. With phones glued to our hands, it can be hard to take a step back and disconnect. I highly advise you to put your phone away during the date. You’d be surprised how many people think it’s okay to to leave their phone out on the table or answer a text while on a date. First impressions mean everything, so you’ll want to make sure you’re engaged in the conversation. If you’re not an on-call doctor, put the phone away.
Remember my most important piece to dating? Keeping an open mind! Don’t be crushed if the first doesn’t go well. You’re not going to have a strong connection with everyone. It’s important to be upfront and honest with your date if you don’t see a second date in the future. No one likes to be led on. If the first date was a success, don’t be shy about confirming a second date. Anyone can take the reins for planning the next date. By the second or third date, you should be able to gauge each others likes and dislikes, which will make plan-making process a breeze.
