Dos and don’ts for looking good on a date
What to wear on a date with a woman
You have to dress the part of the date. If you’re on a date with a woman, then wear something that she would enjoy seeing you in.

What not to wear on a date
Dress confidently. That may sound simple and obvious, but it’s a crucial point. When you go out on a date, your goal is to show that you care about yourself and the person you’re with. One way to show off how confident and secure you are is to dress nicely without being too flashy or loud. You want to impress your date, not the people around you.
Smile and laugh. Your date is going well if the two of you are smiling and laughing together. This means that she’s enjoying your company. Try not to be too serious or act like a know-it-all just because you went to college for four years or have some experience under your belt in life; she might find those qualities intimidating if they come across as overbearing or cocky.
Actively listen. She will appreciate that you really care about what she has to say and her opinions if she can tell that you’re actively listening while talking to her or when she talks about herself–even if it’s just for a minute before asking a question back or changing the subject! It also shows how much more open-minded and accepting of others’ opinions, experiences, ideas, etc., that you are–and those are great qualities in any partner, man or woman.
Be polite, not too serious: There is such thing as being too polite sometimes! Being polite doesn’t mean acting like an obedient dog who follows every word someone says without question; it
Accessories on a date
It’s always good to have a few accessories on you when you’re out on a date. You don’t want to seem unprepared, after all. But what should you carry in your pockets?
Business cards- If you work in the professional world, then business cards are essential. And if you’re not working, but are meeting someone for the first time, it never hurts to offer one
Cologne- This is something that some women will be attracted to and it can really make them feel more comfortable around you
Wallet- It’s always smart to carry your wallet with you because it usually has cash, credit card(s), ID/driver’s license, and other important things
Keys- Again, this is something that most people need at all times
Phone- It may seem like an obvious one, but carrying your phone with you is always a good idea. A lot of people forget their phones at home sometimes and miss important calls or texts. If that happens to you on your date, don’t panic! Just grab your phone from its charging cord or off the table before leaving the house
Make eye contact and smile
You should never forget about eye contact and smiling. These are two of the most important things when it comes to looking good on a date with a girl. If you make eye contact, it shows that you’re confident and interested in what she has to say. And if you smile, she’ll know that you’re happy to be there.
One of the best ways to make eye contact is by looking her in the eyes while talking to her. It’s not difficult, just look up every few sentences or so while talking and focus on her eyes for a second or two. Don’t worry if she looks away every now and then, she might just be shy!
If she smiles at you, don’t forget to smile back! It doesn’t matter how awkward you feel or how much your feet hurt; if she smiles at you, give her a grin back! Remember–a smile is contagious!
Actively listen to your date
Talking about yourself the whole time can make you seem selfish and self-absorbed. You might think your date would want to hear all about you, but that’s not always the case. If your date feels like they’re just a sounding board for you, it’ll make them feel like they’re not important or interesting enough to be worth getting to know. So when you talk, take an interest in what they say–actively listen. You might learn something new or your date will feel more engaged in the conversation because they know you’re paying attention to what they have to say.
Offer to pay for the bill without being asked
Listen more than you speak
One of the biggest mistakes guys make on a date is that they won’t shut up. Women want to be heard, too. It’s not just about you, so listen more than you speak.
Don’t interrupt your date
One of the most important things to remember during your date is not to interrupt. You may be excited about what you’re saying or find a topic fascinating, but that doesn’t mean your date will. If you want the conversation to go smoothly, then don’t interrupt.
Open up about yourself
Ask questions about your date
Talk about yourself too much
Look around the room when talking to your date
Offer unsolicited advice
