    Plan your outfit. Work up a rough idea of what you'll be wearing. As time goes by and you buy new clothes, edit the outfit. Good ideas might be baby blue button-up shirts with brown pants in the winter or fall. Brand names might be good, too.

    Pick out cologne. You don't need this, but it works great with the ladies. If you decide you want it, you won't be sorry. The girl will be all over you, if it smells good. However if you put too much on, it might stink, and she won't want anything to do with you!

    Try on the whole outfit. Now that you have everything planned out, put it all together. Get into your clothes, put on your cologne, fix your hair. Don't do it sloppily-act like you really are going out on the date. Once you're ready, look at yourself in the mirror. Note down any flaws or things to improve the outfit, and make sure you fix them up. This is a very important step-don't be lazy and skip it, you will regret it.

    Take a shower before getting ready. Rushing home from school/work and jumping into your outfit can leave you looking red and sweaty. Skip that and take a relaxing but refreshing shower. If your hair looks nice just after it's washed, wash it. If it gets incredibly frizzy after being wash, wash it the day before and tuck it into a shower cap while you shower. Wash yourself with a nice smelling shampoo and/or soap.

    Fix your hair and skin. While you're fresh out of the shower and still in your towel, do a little grooming. Wash your face and dab on some lotion, brush your teeth, and put lotion on your whole body. It will make your skin nice and soft-perfect for a nice date...Don't rush around, be careful and thorough. You might be excited by now, but just keep your cool-right?

    Don't wreck anything. Once you're ready, sit and watch T.V or chat to a friend. Don't run about outside or start making food. Be careful, just don't do anything that might wreck any of your hair or clothes. It might be hard, but sitting quietly would be a good option. If you really can't, read a magazine, or chat to a friend on the phone.

    Smile. You've probably noticed that even the most physically attractive people are a turn off when frowning. A genuine smile is hard to fake and gives off good vibes and reflect your inner confidence.

    Have clean nails.


  • While you're waiting, pop a mint in your mouth. It'll give you nice fresh breath and give you something to think about. Avoid chewing gum, it's sticky and looks weird if you chew it too violently.
  • Don't get too dressed up or excited. If you're incredibly formal and heavy on the first date, you'll come across very clingy and scare her off. So just keep cool and casual.
  • Have good breath. Before the date, if you don't have mints, run to the store and grab a pack. Peppermint, Spearmint, and Wintergreen are all good flavors, while Cinnamon may be a bit too overpowering. You can also try gum, but be sure you aren't smacking. Gum also hinders eating and talking.


  • Don't get your hopes up really high if you hardly know the girl. You never know what could happen.
  • Try not to put a lot of cologne on, it might be more powerful than you expect it to smell.

Things You'll Need

  • A nice comfortable outfit with clean shoes
  • Hair stuff: brush
  • Cologne: anything that smells good
  • Shower Stuff: good smelling shampoo, as long as it doesn't clash with the cologne.
