The Dating Expert is in the house, ready to answer your questions about first date etiquette, what to wear and how to combat those nerves!
I finally got a date sorted for next week, on Friday with a guy I winked at. We’ve been talking online for a few weeks and I’m really excited – but I don’t know what to wear for the date to make a good first impression. I’m 5’4, dark hair and eyes, pale skin. We’re going to a bar first, then onto dinner.
Okay, first off, well done on organizing a date! I could tell in your longer letter that you are pretty nervous, so make sure you feel great before heading off on your date and it will translate. I’d wear a simple dress in a dark jewel colour, cut just above the knee to keep it from swamping your petite frame. Add low heels you are comfy walking in and a sparkly pair of earrings. Have fun!
I’ve been invited to my cousin’s wedding in October. The guest list is large and I don’t know many people going as my cousin and I move in different circles. I’m hoping a few eligible, single men might be at the party and I want to look fab so I can chat to everyone and have a good time instead of hiding in the corner.
Sounds like a good time to give yourself a little pampering session to make sure you feel on top form when you arrive at this wedding. Stay demure for the ceremony (and warm) by taking along a smart coat and gloves and then reveal your glamorous self at the reception in a sequin dress ready for dancing in! Add a bright lipstick and don’t forget to take some flats – nothing ruins the mood more than painful feet! Try these Foot Fairies.
