I asked my gal pal Brittany aka Alone in Atlanta to cover an event for me while I was at the beach. She went and filed this dating scene report, so check out what happened one night in May:
I attended a fabulous singles mixer hosted by Eight at Eight Dinner Club: A dinner club dating service that selects a compatible mix of single people matched by age, interests, and background. Eight at Eight also brought singles to the swanky Buckhead Theater for a singles style coaching event called “Get Your Sexy On”. The night was about aiding singles in picking the perfect attire for dates! Style Coaches Carmen of Naked Fashion Help and Victor of Victorious Inc. broke down the Dos and Don’ts for both men and women when it comes to selecting ensembles for various outings. Topics ranged from getting fit and grooming for men to ditching the jeans and slipping on a dress for women. The presentation was complete with pictures as well as true stories from singles about what they think about how the opposite sex dresses for date night! There were even a few brave volunteers ready and willing to stand before the style coaches to have their outfits dissected and determined if they were date worthy or not. A question and answer portion followed the presentation where men and women also shared with each other what THEY like to see on the opposite sex when dating! To complete the night, there were 2 giveaways of 2 mini makeovers that valued over $300 as well as services from Eight at Eight. Taking in our style session, single attendees finished the night mixing, mingling, and anxious to take lessons learned from the seminar and “get their sexy on”.
Thanks Brittany! I am sorry I missed this. This brings to mind an interesting question. Men don’t wear suit and ties for business like they used to, let alone dating! What do you like to see your dates wear?
Personally, I love it when guys sport those blazers, fitted slacks, and casual looks. It just drives me crazy when a man shows up looking unkempt, outdated, or raggedy. Please put some effort in your appearance! If I prep for a date for 90 minutes, you can put at least 30 into getting ready! What do you think?
How do you dress for dates? Obviously, it depends on the date activity – but I am curious to know what attire you select? What did you wear on your last date?
