I’m sure you’ve heard the phrase, first impressions last. Lets face it, this is no more apparent than when you are going on that first date, especially if this is a date from the Internet or a blind date. Rightly or wrongly people make judgements in the first couple of seconds when meeting new people and one piece of info they use to judge is by what others wear.

Feeling pressured? No need, this is why I’m here to give you a few tips on how to create the best first impression

In this blog, I’m going to focus on what outfits you should avoid

Oddly enough, choosing what to wear starts with asking yourself what you want from this man. It is now time to ask yourself “Am I looking for Mr Right and the one for me or am I just looking for a casual relationship and nothing serious?”

If you aren’t looking for anything serious and you don’t want a long term relationship with this man, then wear what you want as you won’t be that bothered about what he thinks of you. However, if you are looking for a serious relationship at some point or even marriage (obviously in the distance future), then it’s a good idea to consider what to wear as this contributes to his overall impression of you

So let’s assume you want to be viewed as girlfriend material at the very least

So which two outfits should you avoid on a first date?

1) A masculine outfit

The best dynamic in a relationship is where the woman brings her female energy and the man brings his male energy. If both parties bring male energy to the relationship, it may not be as successful as the male/female energy dynamic. This is why I recommend that you avoid wearing an outfit that is associated with male energy, such as a trouser suit. If you are going to power dress on a date, at least wear a skirt.

2) A sexual outfit

Another outfit to avoid but seems to be a favourite with some women is what I call a “sexual” outfit. By this I mean an outfit which gives off sexual signals i.e. an outfit which is really low cut or really short. Many women like this type of outfit as let’s face it men usually respond pretty positively and that’s what we like. Unfortunately it gets their attention temporarily as they often place women who wear this outfit into the “fling” category. Click here for the four categories men place into blog. Women in this category often get attention, which they confuse for attraction/connection/affection, but only until the man gets bored and finds someone that he has placed in the “potential girlfriend” category. Don’t be fooled into thinking that you can get his attention and then change his opinion of you…..as you probably won’t. Do you want to take the risk?

You are a woman…….so embrace the opportunity to dress like one, but not to the extent where you end up showing him exactly how much of a woman you are 😉

I hope this blog has helped in some way

Until next time
