Without a doubt, one date wonders stink! Talk about a waste of makeup--and if you really liked the guy, a blow to your self-esteem. If you've had a lot of first dates that don't lead to seconds--you may want to consider giving your image a makeover. There are many reasons men don't call after first dates. Some of those reasons may be out of control. But when it comes to influencing the way he percieves you by creating an appealing image, the power lies in your (hopefully) manicured hands!  Read on for three tips to keep him coming back for more--because every woman deserves a second chance!

Be sure to choose a look that conveys your unique personal style

You must be true to yourself so you can give your date a glimpse into who you really are.Yes, this implies that you must first and foremost know yourself. Like William Shakespeare said: “To thine own self be true”!  While fashion fades with the changing of the seasons, influx of new designers, and trends in the media, style is personally yours forever. It’s not about looking like all the other women on the runways--or the block. Sure, you can buy the “in” pieces with the best of the fashionistas, but you can’t buy style. Style is about instinctually knowing how to work those pieces into your wardrobe. Do you know how to mix, match, and come up with the perfect outfit for a last-minute dinner date or premiere? If so, you are on the right track!

Keep it classy! 

Women with true class epitomize elegance and sophistication no matter what their body type or budget. Being classy is all about being sexy without trying too hard. Keeping it classy means having a thorough understanding of the differences between sexy and slutty. It means leaving a little to the imagination to appeal to the men you date. In other words, if you are revealing jaw-dropping cleavage, don’t opt for the mini skirt! Make him wonder! If you want a serious relationship, don't create an image that is oozing with sex! Tone in down a notch if you ever want to see him again--in some place other than the bedromm that is! 

Make sure everything is flattering.

There is a lot to consider when creating an image that will attract love--namely hair, makeup, clothing, and accessories. The most important things to consider when purchasing garments, products, or image-related services are fit and color. (Yes, of course you should consider the quality of the material, longevity, price, and practicality too!) The way that cocktail dress fits you can make or break your look. Your look can make or break your confidence level. Your confidence level can make or break his attraction to you and ultimately his desision to ask or not ask you out again! It’s all in the little details from hem lines to sleeve lengths, and if yours are not working, you should definitely get yourself to a tailor. In order to have a fabulous appearance, you must definitely develop an understanding of which colors go together and which clash. With a little education as well as trial and error, you’ll be able to match everything from skin and hair tones to lipstick shades and shirt colors. But remember, you don't always have to match for your look to be flattering--especially when it comes to purses and shoes!
