How To Impress A Guy On The First Date: Don't Dress Up. Yes, Really!

All girls – well, most girls – think that when they meet a guy, they need to try their hardest at impressing them. Like dressing up for a first date. Wearing super high heels to be just as tall as the guy is, and pretending that they are actually comfortable. Holding in stinky farts, because, I mean, what girl farts in front of a dude!?

But do you really have to do all that? I dare to say the answer is ... NO!

Throughout my twenties, I did do all of that. But once I met my boyfriend, that all went out the window. For some reason, I felt like I could be myself around him and I didn’t need to do all of that silly stuff ... Like pretending.

When I met him for the first time at a friend’s birthday party, I wasn’t wearing anything nice at all. No heels. No makeup. Hair pulled back in a bun. Even when we went on our first date, I dressed pretty casual (I even wore - GASP! - flats), while he was wearing jeans, dress shoes and a black button down shirt. He said that he was expecting me to be all dressed up. I mean, we were going out to dinner. Honestly, I’m not sure why I didn’t get dressed up. But the fact that I didn’t, well, that just made him intrigued.

Once we got to know each other, he immediately knew that I hated heels. Hated dressing up. Hated wearing skirts and dresses. Hated blow drying my hair. Hated wearing makeup. And he didn’t care one bit!

So ladies, if a guy doesn’t seem to care when you’re all plain and simple, it could possibly mean he’s a keeper.

I agree! If you can't be yourself around a guy, he's not worth it. It looks like girls try to hard when they have on such high heels and tons of makeup anyways.
