Appearance Factors As Date-Killers

April 3, 2015


A date can go from splendid to ruined in seconds thanks to many different factors. And while we can’t influence some of them, there are certain things about ourselves we might not notice, but are a true turn-downs for the other side.

With that in mind, here are some small things you should change about your appearance if you ever wish for your date to be successful.

You Are What You Eat

We’re not talking about going on a date on an empty stomach. We’re talking about changing a couple of things about your eating habits that will improve what you look like to your date.

First off, don’t pass on the water. You don’t have to drink exactly eight glasses of water daily, but you also shouldn’t fill up on diuretics such as alcohol and coffee before going out.

These will dehydrate you, making your skin and hair dry, and we can’t express enough how unattractive that can be.

Also, pay attention to what you eat. Chewing down on fast food and fat-rich meals maybe won’t dry out your skin, but it will make it greasy. Instead, try to have balanced meals that include a variety of foods.

Groom Yourself Properly

Now that you’ve taken care of your ‘inner beauty’, it’s time to move on to your exterior. This means you need to pay attention to what you’re doing while you’re grooming yourself, as these mistakes can have devastating results.

If you’re in a hurry but you need to shave, you’re probably thinking “I can do that on dry skin.” Stop right there – it’s better to be late than to arrive all cut up with irritated skin and a rash. Take your time and shave yourself with shaving cream, or simply go unshaven.

Last, but not least, is slouching. Whether you’ve had a tough day at work or you’re just tired, you can start hunching over without noticing it, which can make you look weak, lazy, and unconfident. So remember to keep your back straight while you’re on a date to appear more like a man and less like a booger.
