Meeting Face to Face for the First Time?

I never knew that meeting a person for the first time face to face can be so difficult until last Saturday.  I tried a new dating site I discovered www.sautidates.com and after talking with this guy for a while he asked me out.

“Good morning. Hope you’ve woken up well.” “Yes I have. What are you up to this coming Saturday? Could we meet for lunch, or go for a movie or dinner?

Without having a second thought, so excited and all smiling I said “Yes, I will create time for one of those”

Then came the jitters and questions.

“Do I really want to meet this man? What will I wear? Body-con/figure hugging? Loose? Trouser? Tights? Short dress or long dress? Skirt? What Will I Wear!!! How will I wear? Seductive, sophisticated, classy or just simple? What kind of hair will I go with or how should I style my hair? Should I put makeup or not? And if yes what kind of makeup? I mean OH! O God!

It felt like the  Most Confused Moments Of My Life. I had to calm down and tell myself I GOT THIS. Ladies I know you feel me.

After calming down I came up with what to wear for any of the three options Mr. D mentioned.

Because of how my date ended up I decided to share some of the do’s and don’ts with you.

    1. Be as natural as possible.
a) No heavy makeup like eyeshadows, fake eye lashes, contours, concealers, highlights etc.
            b) Go for plating or your natural hair. So no wigs or weaves
            c) Go for hairstyles that clearly show your face outline.
2. Dress as simple as possible #Don’t reveal too much Avoid body-con or figure hugging clothing, low neckline cuts that shows off your cleavage, high slit clothing, and        mini-dresses or skirts etc. this is because you are not going to seduce the person or to sell your body features but to get to know a person. In my opinion just wear anything        you will feel   comfortable when you are with your parents.
3. Dress for the situation. E.g. movies, coffee, lunch or dinner date have different kind of outfits to wear.
   4. Wear comfortable shoes. Remember shoes can complete or break the outfit so choose wisely.
   5. Put a little effortdon’t go with old and stained clothes but wear something flashy and good.

I’ve come to realize that we women make a lot of efforts to appreciate the person in terms of our dressing but men umh umh they don’t make an effort at all. Why is that? I feel they should make an effort too.

So below are the outfit options I had when going for the date with Mr. D. I wore one of them but I won’t say which one. Because of the rains I went for warm outfits.

I would love to know what you will dress for a blind date.

Or which are other fashion advice for a blind date?

This was my first blind date, which was quite an interesting experience thanks to SautiDates. Check their Facebook page to know about them.

  1. I think we men care a lot more how we should look on blind date because when everything fails, class and elegant will save the day. Nice article for ladies!

    • Unfortunately most men don’t make the effort thus making the women looking so overdressed for the occasion. thumbs to those men who make the efforts to look classy and sharp.

  2. I think as a male fashion blogger i should take up the challenge and educate my kind. Its about time we match up to our ladies because as i am made to understand there are certain things ladies pay close attention to like shoes, the man’s scent just to mention a few but then again there’s a small percentage who dress the part. Good read.

  3. Woah! I’m really digging the template/theme of this site.
    It’s simple, yet effective. A lot of times it’s very hard to get that “perfect balance” between usability and visual appearance.
    I must say you have done a great job with this.
    Additionally, the blog loads very quick for me on Chrome.
    Outstanding Blog!

  4. Will you mind basically if i quote a couple of your posts given that I provide
    credit and sources straight back to your blog?
    My blog site is incorporated in the very same part of interest as yours and my visitors would
    really benefit from a few of the information you present here.

    Please tell me if this ok with you. Thanks a lot!

  5. Think about how great you feel when your hair looks perfect, when your makeup is flawless or when you’re wearing that flattering dress that never fails to turn heads.
