Heading out on the town with your beau or a new man? Here’s what you need to do…
Don’t just turn to your trusted worn jeans and ponytail. Put a little care into how you look. Wear that outfit that makes you feel unstoppable, don’t skimp on makeup (but, of course, don’t pile it on), and finish with a fragrance. It’s not all for him—looking like you own it will make you feel great!
Have a plan
Even if he’s set the date itinerary, have a few backup ideas to contribute. Suggest a spot for dessert, a jazz club open late, or a gallery to swing by. He’ll be impressed and you’ll get to do something you want.
Yes, paper seems like a thing of the past, but you never know when you may need it. Whether it’s for parking, a busker, a cab ride, or a tip, don’t let yourself get caught without cash.
Don’t rush through the end of your date. A quick “thanks for dinner” and a peck on the cheek just doesn’t cut it. Take the time to tell him what you liked and how much you enjoyed yourself. Look into his eyes and tell him you want to do it again. Of course, if the date was one you’d rather forget, just run.
