Don't go overboard when dressing for the first date. The key is to appear comfortable and look nice, but not to appear as if you are trying too hard. Wear clothes that look nice but aren't formal; that fit you well and aren't too small. Be clean and well-groomed. Keep both cologne and jewelry to a healthy minimum. Wear only a standard amount of makeup. Subtlety will go the farthest on the first date – you want to leave them wanting more, not less. Always be sure to compliment your date on his or her outfit, too.
