First and Foremost: Hygiene Is Key
Above anything else, when it comes to grooming for a date you should be prioritising good hygiene. Think about it. This is your limited time to make an impression on your date, so you want it to be a positive one.
Make sure you’ve showered, brushed your teeth, cleaned and clipped your fingernails, and you’re wearing clean clothing. This is the absolute baseline level basic preparation you should be doing. If you’re short on time—this is the one step you under no circumstances should skip.
Get Yourself Looking Good
The above are the things that you need to be doing day-of to make sure you wow your date. But there are things you can be doing in the run-up, as well.
If you know you’ve got a date in a few days’ time, you may want to book in for a haircut or for a beard trimming. These are little touches that will let your date know that you’ve put time and effort into your appearance, something they’ll appreciate.
Find the Perfect Fragrance
If you’ve got one signature scent, then you might choose to wear this for your date. If you like to experiment and try new things, however, then you can have fun finding the most fitting fragrance based on what type of date you’ve got planned.
If you’re doing an activity like hiking, rock climbing, or bowling, then you can try a sportier scent. If you’re going for a romantic dinner or drinks, then something more musky and manly might be a better fit. No matter which scent you decide to with, don’t drown yourself in it—you don’t want to knock them out cold the second you walk in the door.
