The first thing to remember is that you should dress to impress, but without compromising on comfort. Feeling comfortable on a date is critical for success, you will feel more nervous as well as make them feel nervous if you keep adjusting those hipsters every 2 minutes, or when you fall over because your heels are too high.
When you feel amazing you naturally give off a confident aura making you more desirable.
Put that skimpy number back in the party shop where it belongs!
You definitely don’t want to be look like mutton dressed as lamb (look too young for your age) so don’t over do it with make up or clothes that you can’t get away with.

Hi, my name is Suzanne
I’m 25 and I like this guy who is 22. He’s kind of shy though and he’s always looking for me to take care of him (I work at a bank). He’s a customer. Any ways, he gets kind of nervous when I take care of him and I get all shy that I don’t know what to say. How do I approach him or ask him out. OR…..do I have to wait and if he’s interested in me, he’ll ask me out.

Studies carried out in the USA have shown that attractive people have distinct advantages in our society and get on far better in life.
Take a look at these true examples as to how attractive people benefit more from life:
• Attractive children are more popular, both with classmates and teachers. Teachers give higher evaluations to the work of attractive children and have higher expectations of them (which has been shown to improve performance).
• Attractive applicants have a better chance of getting jobs, and of receiving higher salaries. (one US study found that taller men earned around £300 per inch more than shorter executives.)
• In court, attractive people are found guilty less often. When found guilty, they receive less severe sentences.
There are some exceptions to the rule however!

Here are some simple, memorable body language signs to look out for when you want to know if they fancy you or not.
Signs you’re in with a chance:-
• Visible increase in physical contact (e.g. touching your arm, their hair & lips)
• Loads of eye contact that becomes more intense
• Clear interest in whatever nonsense you are talking about
• Position of their body points to you
• Their pupils widen
Signs you are going home alone:-
• Very defensive body language (e.g. looking away, arms folded, frowning, body pointing in opposite direction
• Inability to take in what you are saying
• Very little eye contact
• Looking at watch and yawning

This is a natural phenomenon. When a man takes a look in the mirror he sees someone completely different, normally far better looking and 10lbs lighter. Why the hell is this?
Well, there are three main reasons according to research:
• Thanks to the media, we have become accustomed to extremely rigid and uniform standards of beauty. TV, billboards, magazines etc mean that we see ‘beautiful people’ all the time, more often than members of our own family, making exceptional good looks seem real, normal and attainable – we want to compete for female attention.
• Men generally have a more positive body image than women.
• Men may be feeling insecure and vulnerable.
