Rhonda Cort at YourTango has compiled a list of tips to dress for success in love. Cort thinks that people should treat finding (and keeping) a mate like finding (and keeping) a job – you’ve got to look the part. She says, “When you don’t look great, you don’t feel great. So how can you expect to attract someone?”
I’m not the type of person who thinks physical beauty is more important than a person’s other attributes, but I agree that doing the few simple things below go a long way to making a person feel attractive. Some of these are Cort’s ideas and some are mine, but they’re all sound and easy to accomplish. I mean, if I can do it, you can do it:
Build an Everyday Wardrobe You Like
When I got divorced a few years ago, I realized my closet and drawers were full of clothes I didn't like. After I had my daughter, I stopped putting effort into finding clothes I really liked and just went with whatever seemed to fit. I wasn't happy with my figure, I wasn't happy in my relationship, and I really needed to dedicate some time to myself. I started slowly building a wardrobe of everyday clothes that I looked and felt good in and that I felt truly reflected my personality. As soon as I felt better about looking better, of course I naturally lost a little bit of weight, too. I think the secret to looking good in clothes is wearing stuff you feel physically comfortable in, so that you can walk and talk and be yourself without thinking about what you're wearing. When you've got an everyday wardrobe you like, no matter what you put on each day, you're ready to meet the love of your life.
