When we prepare for a date, we need to be extra careful. This is because when we go on a date our primary goal should always be: impressing the person we are meeting. Your goal should be the same even if you are going on a blind date. However, getting ready for blind dates will require you to put in some additional efforts. The pointers below include some tips that will help you to prepare for a blind date.
- The first thing that you should do is acquiring as much information as possible about the person you have decided to meet for a blind date. If the blind date is arranged by a common friend, ask him/her to provide you some basic information about the stranger you are going on a date with. This will help you to understand the type of personality your date possesses. If possible, also try to know what hobbies the person has. This will allow you to plan your conversation well in advance. In other words, if you know what interests your date most, you will be able to gather information on that subject and spend time with him/her discussing the topic in details.
- Next, you should decide what to wear. As you don’t know the person you will be meeting, it is impossible for you to know how he or she likes to see his/her date. So, dress up in something that fits all occasions and also make you look attractive. For guys preparing for a blind date, our suggestion would be a formal shirt and a pair of formal trousers. No man can look bad in this combination. If you are a woman below 30, dress up in a knee length skirt (preferably white or black in color; grey will also do) and a top offering a very casual fit. The color of the top should be a contrast to that of the skirt; this means if you are wearing a dark colored skirt, opt for a top that is light in color (pick shades like white, yellow, light blue, light green etc). For older women, our advice would be wearing a pair of casual trousers and a shirt.
- Now, you will have to decide what kind of accessories you will wear. For guys, it’s easy; a good-looking watch and a pair of shiny boots are enough to enhance a guy’s good-looks. The situation is a bit trickier for women. Never, use too much makeup when going on a blind date. Just highlight your eyes and keep your lips and cheeks dull. When it comes to choose, a woman can afford to wear anything that complements her attire. However, if you are thinking of wearing stilettos, make sure that you will be able to walk comfortably wearing them. This is because if you can’t walk comfortably there will be nobody to help you; will you want to seek support of someone you don’t know, for walking? Never, right?
