It is about that time when I do a post specifically for my male readers. The question I am posing to all readers is: Why is a seemingly eligible bachelor single at age 30 plus when there are double the amount of eligible women single? I am challenging you to please share you opinions on why some of the guys you have dated that seemed great on paper did not peak your interest after the first date. Now as a sartorial blogger, I am forced to focus this post on the dress and behavior, but hey I guess that is the whole problem if the resume is not! Here is my list of why these men (I know some personally) are still single:
1. You text instead of call! You are a grown educated man and you only use texting to get to know a girl that you CLAIM you are interested in. You go as far as asking for a date via text. While the chick may go out of boredom, she has definitely permanently removed you as a viable future candidate. My suggestion is GROW UP and CALL! You are coming across cheap or pusillanimous.
2. If you do call, you have nothing to speak about past a recollection of the day's mood and activities. If you are over 30 and educated you MUST have something substantive to speak about if not, that explains why you are single. I suggest listening to the news every night and making Barnes and Nobles your favorite hotspot to read books that can be the center of interesting conversations.
3. You are showing up to a date dressed like you are in college! If you are showing up to a date with a lady dressed in an oversized t-shirt, jeans and sneakers....that is why are you still single. There are a few messages being sent by your offensive dress, especially if you work in corporate America: (1) You do not care! (2) You are not cultured! and (3) You are clueless! All of which the average girl does not have the patience to deal with at your age. It may sound trivial and superficial, however that is why I do what I do, to emphasize how very important your dress is in predicting your successes. My suggestion....contact me :)!
4. You are a pincher! You invite a chick out and you (1) only let her know the date is dutch when you do not pay for her meal, (2) you ask to share a meal, and (3) you accept her offer to foot part of the bill. If you are guilty of any of the mentioned I suggest ONLY going on dates when you could pay for the whole bill! Well that is if you are serious about finding that special girl!
The moral of this story is that first impressions count...even if you believe it or not! Do you go to a job interview in sneakers? Do you use an indirect, passive approach with your dream employer to create a serious interest in you as a candidate?
The truth is if you read this and are guilty of one or more and think I am tripping, I will give you the excuse that maybe you are not serious about being in a long-term committed relationship. If you disagree with this assertion then I say to you: Dude that is why you are still single lol!
Below are looks that you can use for an afternoon to an evening date. Mix and match as you please. But hopefully this gives you an idea of looks that will please most eligible females!
