Getting ready for a first date is exciting and nerve-wracking. The current global pandemic has changed the way people interact in the 21st century, including the dating scene. Whether you are going on an in-person or virtual date, you want to look and feel your best. Take a look at some helpful tips to look and feel your best for your upcoming first date.
Get your grooming on point.
The key to making a great impression on a first date is to put effort into your grooming. Make an appointment to get your hair and nails done, and treat yourself to a facial. Take a refreshing shower and dab on your favorite perfume in moderation. The key to being confident on a first date is to show up as yourself.
Many psychological factors contribute to your feelings of confidence. While there is truth to the expression, “when you look good, you feel good”, certain medical conditions can impact your confidence. Erectile dysfunction can dramatically affect your quality of life, confidence, and sex life. Impotence is common in older men as their testosterone levels decrease, however, men of any age can experience a decrease in sexual desire and sexual function, interfering with their ability to have satisfying sexual intercourse. There are several causes of ED, such as consuming too much alcohol, drug use, obesity, lack of physical activity, and the use of prescription medications that cause erectile dysfunction as a side effect. This is common with medications for high blood pressure or hypertension and their effect on blood flow.
Lifestyle changes in addition to the use of prescription medications for erectile dysfunction can help men regain their confidence and sexual performance. USARx offers a comparison of Hims and BlueChew reviews, and how their telehealth services can help men improve their quality of life.
Hims offers five different medications that provide effective treatment of erectile dysfunction including Viagra, sildenafil (generic Viagra), Cialis, tadalafil (generic Cialis), and Stendra. The medications are available through a monthly prescription or as an as-needed dosage. BlueChew offers a more limited selection of erectile dysfunction medications. The telehealth provider only sells sildenafil and tadalafil and specializes in creating chewable tablets that use the same active ingredients as commercial drugs.
Hims focuses on the treatment of erectile dysfunction and other men’s health issues such as hair loss and premature ejaculation. BlueChew’s telehealth services only focus on prescriptions for ED treatment for those who can’t use commercial medication formulations. A combination of the right medication and lifestyle modifications can effectively treat sexual dysfunction and help you achieve a more satisfying sex life.
Dress to impress.
Your personal sense of style should shine but within reason. The key to dressing for a first date is to find the balance between casual and formal style. You may find your sense of style has become tired and boring after a year of staying at home socially distanced. Preparing for a first date is a great reason to treat yourself to some wardrobe refreshers. Listen To Webby offers several easy ways to upgrade your looks without breaking the bank.
A fun way to brighten up your jewelry box is to invest in conflict-free simulated diamonds. Every man should have a quality timepiece in his jewelry collection.

Thrift shopping is a fun way to add new elements of style to your wardrobe and help you build a unique look that reflects your personality.
Reframe your idea of what it means to be single.
The question of why you are single is bound to come up during a first date. Don’t focus on crafting a perfect explanation for why you are single. Everyone has a reason for their relationship status. You should never feel a need to defend yourself, nor should you feel pushed to explain sooner than you care to. There’s no rush to find “the one,” and sometimes you need to be flexible on your idea of what your perfect partner looks like. You can find the perfect match at any time, and sometimes all it takes is one date.
Thoroughly grooming, dressing to impress, and reframing your mind about being single can all help you look and feel your best.
