Once you reach a certain age you have to date men in suits. Dating the college guys, the basketball shorts guys, and the Jordan-obsessed guys is no longer acceptable. It's time to add some class in your life. Raise your expectations and your standards just.... a little bit.
The way a man dresses speaks volumes about who he is as a person. If he's still dressing like a kid, then chances are he's going to act like a kid. Immaturity is not something you should have to put up with in your life after you reach a certain age. Any man in his mid-twenties should own a good suit, know how to tie his own tie, and have a decent pair of dress shoes.
That doesn't mean a man should never be able to dress down. Of course not. Everyone can have chill clothes, gym clothes, and just-running-to-the-store clothes. But he should be able to dress up and like to dress up.
First of all, a man who dresses up is very sexy. A good-fitting suit and tie is the male equivalent to the little back dress for ladies.
Secondly, a man who wears a suit probably has a decent job. Whether he's a senator or an average Joe with a good job, either way he's showing up for work and dressing to impress. And that shows that he has the potential to take care of you. (Not that you need taking care of)
And lastly, a man who rocks a suit and tie is going to take you out. Any man who has a decent wardrobe is going to want to get dressed and go out. And if you're dating this guy, that means many nights of dining at fine restaurants, going to concerts and plays, and just trying so many new things in general.
Ladies, please keep in mind that dressing up is not just for the man in your life. If you expect him to look like an adult, then you need to do so also. You attract what you are. So if you're single and you keep attracting bums, re-examine your own appearance. If you're in a relationship, don't get too comfortable to dress up for your man. So step it up a notch, and don't settle for less than a suit and tie!
