Dress to impress

My date on Saturday night wore a suit. It was the type of outing where a suit is preferred, and I wore a dress. Incidentally, it was the same dress I wore to this venue the last time, but he doesn't need to know that. All I know is that I look great in that dress, so there. The last time I went to this venue, my date (a completely different guy, I assure you) wore khakis, a white dress shirt with the sleeves rolled up, and a really ugly tie.

The suit on my most recent date was refreshing. He looked great. I'd said nothing about what I was wearing to hint that he might want to dress up. He just knew what was expected at that kind of event and dressed accordingly, and I figured he would. I figured right.

That is so impressive, dressing appropriately for an occasion. I don't care if his suit came from Armani or The Men's Wearhouse, but don't show up in jeans for a black-tie affair. Someone who takes care of their appearance and dresses according to an occasion will be remembered for it.

I promise.

Too many guys greatly underestimate just how important this is. Good for him for not being one of those guys.
