Having a night out on the town is something that I haven’t participated in for many, many years. I still remember what it was like meeting men and hoping to make a good impression on them. Thankfully I don’t have to deal with the issue of dating anymore, but I do have some tips for those of you who still participate in the dating scene. Here are the top 8 ways to prepare yourself to meet men tonight. You might find one or two to be somewhat helpful in your endeavor.
8. Wear Appropriate Clothing
The clothing you wear tends to reflect the type of guy you are going to attract. If you are merely looking for a good time and nothing serious, then that sexy little number at the back of the closet might do the trick. If you are hoping to meet a more conservative guy, then wear something that is comfortable and not too revealing. Another factor to figure in with clothing is the location of your hunting ground. You want to fit in with the crowd too.
7. Smell Nice, but Don’t Shower in Perfume
Putting on perfume too strongly can be a huge turn-off. I’ve walked by people who reek of perfume. The stench is so great that I’m certain they must have spilled the entire bottle on themselves. It’s hard to believe that anyone would purposely wish to smell that way. It’s never a nice scent either. It’s always one of those pungent aromas that make my nose hairs cringe in horror. Yeah, nice visual.
6. Don’t Forget the Deodorant
I can’t tell you how many times I’ve left the house and realized halfway to my desired locale that I’ve forgotten to put on deodorant. There’s nothing like the uncomfortable feeling that your armpits are sweating through your blouse and that every guy has to be noticing the sweat glistening on your skin; not the good kind of glistening either. I recommend putting a small container of deodorant in the glove box, one in your purse, and one by the car keys, just so you remember to apply it.
5. Have Confidence
Even if you aren’t one who has lots of self-esteem, pretend! If you act like you are a confident individual, then you’ll start to believe it. I find it easier to have confidence around people I don’t know than those that I do. I know this may sound odd, but it’s true. With strangers I simply tell myself that I don’t know any of these people and probably will never see the majority of them ever again. Why should I care what they think?
4. Think about What You Want
If you are able to visualize what you are looking for and hope to achieve for the night, then chances are that you’ll get what you want. When you have the mindset that the night will be utterly boring and completely uneventful, then this tends to be the case. Try to imagine meeting a guy and how your conversation might go. It’s fun and a great way to pass the time, to say the least.
The more you smile, the more people will smile back at you. Smiling tends to boost your mood and make you more pleasant to be around. When you are surrounded by positive feelings you will usually attract other positive people to you. I don’t know about you, but meeting a guy with a positive attitude sounds much better than attracting a guy who is pessimistic about everything.
2. Wear Sexy Lingerie
Even thought I know no one else can see what I’m wearing underneath my clothing as I walk through a club or restaurant, it still has the capability to make me feel a little bit sexy. When you feel good about yourself it shows on the outside as well. Try putting on something that you’ve got tucked away in the back of the drawer for a special occasion. You might be surprised at how much your attitude changes while you’re wearing it!
1. Get in a Good Mood
Call up a friend; listen to vibrant music, or watch a funny YouTube clip. Leaving the house in a great mood puts you at an advantage. I have a lot of friends who leave the house in a bad mood because they are trying to boost their spirits. If you are heading out to meet a guy and are already feeling happy, then things can only get better, right? Happiness is also an excellent feeling that is very easy to pass on to others.
I hope these top 8 ways to prepare yourself to meet men tonight are useful or that you can find someone who might benefit from them. The dating scene can be a tricky one, but a fun one as well. As long as you feel great about yourself and hold your head high, you should be able to get what you want! What tips do you have for someone looking to meet men?
