3 pre-date routines every man should follow

Listen up men. Going on a first date without any preparation or advanced thought behind it is a big mistake. These days women have a lot of options, so you need to roll up to your dates fully prepared and ready to impress. Here are three pre-date routines every man should follow.

1. Groom yourself well.

This includes everything from top to bottom. If you have facial hair, trim it properly with even lines marking the edges. If you have chest hair, it shouldn't be exploding out of your shirt. Wax your ears. You get the idea. Every little detail will go noticed when you meet your date.

2. Dress to impress.

The right outfit can make the difference between a first and second date. What you wear sends signals about what type of person you are. Dressing poorly not only makes you look worse, but will show you are potentially a lazy guy that doesn't have much motivation towards anything in life. If you can't motivate yourself for a first date, what else can't you motivate yourself for?

3. Catch up on current events.

Going into a date armed with plenty of topics to talk about is very useful. Watch the news a bit. Read online. Learn some pop culture. The more interesting things you have to discuss, the better off you will be.
