It doesn’t matter whether you are looking for someone around your age or younger or even older, being a 40+ women, you might have to face certain preconceptions, especially on the first date. However, once you are past that first impression, things won’t matter that much. Therefore, it isn’t as important to make a good impression as it is to make the right one.
You can start things rolling on your first date, take control of the situation and narrow down on desired possibilities. All you need is to look how you feel, and here is how you do that.
1. Vibe with Your Vibe
Ask yourself, ‘What type of a person am I?’ If you can’t find a satisfactory answer, ask your best friend for what defines you. Keeping that in mind, look into your wardrobe and try to find out the clothes that match that look. You can gauge your looks by judging your confidence level in the clothes.
2. Don’t Go Overboard
Okay, so you think that you are really sexy person, and want to dress to match that vibe. Well if that’s the case, we would suggest that you just wait a little bit. Men love mysteries. Not revealing too much tends to get them even more interested in you. So, at first, you should try that. Don’t go on a first that as if you are getting back with an ex.
3. Balance Comfort and Looks
Most probably, you don’t look your best in what’s most comfortable for you and vice versa. So, somewhere down the line, you need to strike a balance between comfort and looks. In case you think that you ultimately have to prefer one over the other, we’d suggest that you prefer comfort over looks.
4. Try Not to Go For New Clothes
There’s a problem with many of us. Instead of selecting something we already have in our wardrobe, we prefer buying something new for a new date. Even if that’s the case, we suggest that you wear the dress two or three times before you take it out on a date. You certainly wouldn’t want to spoil your first date thinking that you don’t look as good as you thought. More than your looks it affects your mood.
5. Underclothing is Important Too
Of course, there aren’t many people who want to take things to the next level on the first date. Still underclothes are important because if they aren’t comfortable, they could spoil your mood. Don’t wear anything that’s too tight.
6. Keep Your Body Shape in Mind
It doesn’t matter whether you have an apple shaped body or a pear shaped body, you shouldn’t wear clothes that stay in defiance with how your body looks. You should keep this especially in mind if you have gained/lost weight recently.
At the end of the day, the best you can do is the best you can do. You cannot change how other people are. If, even after trying out everything in the list, you think your life would be better with your ex, you can try to learn more about how to get your ex back, or you can spend time in self-discovery and do things which you might not get a chance to do when you are in a relationship. Being by yourself isn’t that bad, especially when you are having a good time.
