In psychology, a first impression is the event when one person first encounters another person and forms a mental image of that person.
Impression accuracy varies depending on the observer and the target (person, object, scene, etc.) being observed.
In that setting it is difficult for anyone to make a good impression.
But nowadays most men and women who are interested in dating have probably communicated a number of times before they actually meet.
Global processing emphasizes first impressions more because the collective first impression tends to remain stable over time.
Try to add a bit of color to your outfit, nothing super bright and showy like flame motor red or fluorescent colors.
You will perhaps aim to make a good impression on your date and dressing improperly is a sure way not to impress!
For casual dating like going to a movie, or out for coffee, pick clean jeans that are in good condition or casual dress jeans and a nice T-shirt or button down shirt.
Dress to match the event to dress for a first date.
Clearly, you’re not going to wear a tuxedo to go on a climb, so make sure you know what’s proper for your first date.
