Why Your Shoes Can Make Or Break A First Date
If you’ve been following AdviceForHim.com for a while now, you may have probably come across my posts on how wardrobe can significantly affect your dating chances already.
However, there is one key wardrobe item that a lot of guys seem to overlook when they’re taking out a woman for the very first time. And the thing is it could easily ruin a date no matter how much prepping they’ve done.
Let me explain what I mean…
See, women are very conscious of the shoes you have on during a first date. It really doesn’t matter if you’ve put on your best outfit, too. As long as a woman thinks your choice of footwear is terrible, your date won’t go as well as you planned.
This is because something happens inside your date’s body as soon as she has a peek at your shoes.
If she likes your style, her brain immediately instructs the endocrine glands to produce and release feel-good hormones that make her feel more inclined to socialize, which plays an important role in the success of your date.
However, if your date thinks your footwear isn’t that nice, it still fires up the endocrine glands to churn out hormones, but it’s their negative counterparts this time. Besides making a woman feel quite anxious, these stress hormones also make her impatient and rather tricky to build a connection with.
This simply means game over for your first date before you’ve even got started.
Now while keeping an eye on the cleanliness of your shoes is a given, there is another factor that you should take note of to prevent her brain from setting off the endocrine glands to release stress hormones.
And it’s the kind of shoes you wear when you take a woman out the first time.
I know this sounds a bit technical right now, but you’ll find that the whole thing is actually quite simple when you follow along…
I’ve also narrowed it down to specific points to make it even easier to understand.
Firstly, make it a point to keep clear from common footwear no-nos like wearing sandals with socks or perhaps distressed boots that look like they’re going to burst their seams anytime soon.
Secondly, go for shoes that you feel really comfortable wearing. Sacrificing comfort over aesthetics will only make your feet hurt sooner or later and you’ll just act awkward during your date.
Lastly, it’s a smart idea to invest in a good pair of dress shoes. You can’t go wrong with them if you’re looking to wow a woman on a first date, especially if you match them with a tasteful outfit.
