Most guys plan a date before they take you out. 9/10 times, they’ve planned to pick you up, reserved a restaurant and thought of things to throw in your conversation. In return, they do expect a similar kind of effort. If your date isn’t a candle-lit dinner and more of a visit to the theme park, it’s best to not leave the house with brand new shoes you have yet to break in and will cause you blisters. Wearing a bodycon dress on a date that you will involve a lot of walking or what not, just screams unprepared. But non-outfit-wise, even time is an important factor. Don’t cut an amazing date short because you forgot to do something. They’ll get the impression you’re using your oh-there’s-been-a-fake-emergency-which-I-have-to-attend-to excuse.
