Good hygiene and appearance is not only essential to attract and keep the girls, it is also a must for health reasons. Do a check list before you leave on a date, specially if you have kissing plans involved:
A beard may lend you a certain amount of sophistication, but it is a little different when viewed from a kissing angle. Make sure, it is:
Neatly trimmed (no one wants straggly hair in their mouth)
Is freshly washed and combed and does not smell (or worse taste) of left over meals.
Don't put any hair products in it, as up close they could create a problem for your girl.
Breath / Teeth
Always, always brush before a date and brush your teeth and tongue well.
Take care of any necessary dental work, before you set out a-kissing.
Not only are bleeding gums and bad teeth ugly to look at, they can be a health menace and transfer unwanted germs to your partner.
Bad dental hygiene/ and or cavities can also result in bad breath.
Go armed with mints. Have one yourself and offer one to your date, so that kissing is a pleasant experience.
If you have chapped lips, start using a lip balm regularly before the DDay.
Don't kiss if you have a cold sore, you could transfer oral herpes which is very dangerous.
Shower & Scent
Have a shower everyday and if you are hot and sweaty, have one before leaving for your date.
Shave nicely before your date. The smoother your skin, the more kissable it is.
Go easy on the after shave. It smells great, but experience proves that most of them taste bitter upon kissing.
Too much after shave is overpowering and makes you look desperate and cheesy.
Dress Sense / Clothes
Be a snappy dresser.
Very clean, nicely laundered clothes that make you look great.
Jeans are fine, but not the smelly pair from last year.
Every girl wants to go out with a well dressed man, after all part of the fun is showing of her handsome 'catch'.
Consider it the other way around, would you like to go out with a badly dressed, dirty woman reeking of perfume?
