I had a first date with this guy. I myself, showered, blow dried my hair, make-up, high heels, nice, clean pressed dress – very smart. Met my date in a pub. He was wearing dirty old jeans – scruffy black boots and wait for it – A VEST! (with his dinner dribbled down the front of it) I left very quickly. He e-mailed me later and said he didn’t understand how I knew we were not suitable?
Worst clothes to wear on a first date…
1: Nascar jacket….apologies to Nascar fans but wow….
2: White socks with dress shoes
3: Shirt or hat you got “free” when you bought a 15 pack of beer (maybe ok when you’re 18, but not in my age group)!
3 1/2: Shirts with the Simpsons depicted on them…always makes me scratch my head in wonder when I see an adult wearing something like that, outside of maybe working in their garage….?
4: Anything with holes or food stains….throw it out!
I don’t think I’m all that picky about how somebody’s dressed…check yourself in the mirror before you leave for your date and let common sense prevail!
After discussing with a date where to go, we decide to go to dinner as our first meet. It was a very nice casual dinning place, dress casual would be the appropriate attire. I explained this to my date over the phone where he helps me decide to wear a nice casual dress. I assumed he knew that he should be dressing similar.
So there I am in my dress, pantyhose, and low wedge closed toe shoes, answering the door when my date arrives… He’s dressed baggy, knee length shorts, an over sized t-shirt, a ball cap, worn out sneakers with his toes poking out, and unwashed LONG hair from the looks of it. Never mind all that though. The worse thing he wore was the invisible stamp of liar when he’s said his pic on POF (Plenty Of Fish) is recent, when it’s in fact not, as his hair is very SHORT in the pic (it takes a few years to grow from hair cut extremely short to extremely long) and doesn’t look anything at all like his pic!!!!
