    How do you get ready for a date? I think it goes without saying that a shower or possible shave is obvious, but what are some quirkier, or out of the box things you personally do to get yourself ready for a date?

    For example, I think it may be helpful to give yourself a quick pulse check to determine your confidence or ‘internal sexiness factor’.

    Do you have certain ‘date’ cologne you wear? If you’re planning on getting lucky, do you wear certain underwear or perhaps trim your armpits, chest or pubic hairs?

    [​IMG]

    Personally when I’ve wanted to focus on dating and not just ‘hooking up’, I would masturbate beforehand so my lustful libido would be temporarily depleted.

    I’ve also given myself ‘pep talks’ before I’ve left the house and in route to the date location, telling myself that, “no matter what, I will have a good time and enjoy my night, regardless of how the date goes.”

    Meaning even if the date is not a love connection, I would still make it a point to enjoy my evening even after the date is over; just enjoying a solo night on the town.

    It seems the gay dating landscape has a multitude of dating explosive mines on the field that have been planted. What are some of things you do to get ready for a date?

    I'll fast forward to like date 3. At date 3 I'm probably going to do a lot more preparations than the first and depending on how date 2 went, will determine how thorough that preparation will be.

    Now, I'm not one to really wear cologne often but I will on occasion. Negative on the special undies. Ain't nobody got time to be impressing folks with drawz. Or at least I don't. I'll probably do the pre date JO on date 3 though. This is mainly because I may want something to progress physically but then, I may be ok without it. Which means, date 4 will probably be physical.

    As for just the first two dates, I'm definitely going to try to make the best of it, even if I don't really feel the dude like that. I try to do a date 2 if there's an inkling if the guy is okay. If we are just not into each other then it's cool going on our separate ways. I'm also not the type who shades people so if the date doesn't work out, and I see you in public, I can still say hi.

    It's complicated
    I don't own sexy underwear and if I did, I don't have the sexy body to put in them so scratch that.

    Depending on how long I expect the date to be, I may try and measure my food intake. So if it's a coffee date only, i will eat a full meal. If we have plans that may make the date hours long or I think I might be going back to his place, I don't want to eat a full meal because, well, i'm not trying to introduce him to all of my normal habits so soon.

    I actually, track the time because I hate nothing more than to be late to anything so i plan my day so that i show up at the spot at least 10 minutes ahead of time.

    Y'all better write this stuff down because Ro Ro don't spit wisdom too often on here.

    I do the usual. Shower, shave, wear nice clothes.

    The most "unique" thing I do is come up with conversation topics. If we had been talking for a while through texts and what not, I usually have a general idea of what topics they find interesting. I'll pay attention to the news, media, and make note of things they may find interesting. I combine that with my interests and try to have different things in mind so we're not talking about general boring shit like "How was the ride here?" "How was work?" I want something deeper.

    I do all of the usual things stated previously. I usually brush up on what we are doing making mental talking points. It is a habit I have picked up in my line of work. Depending on how the forecast the date, I make take additional preparation, the three S's usually some it up, shit, shower, and shave. I am sorta a details person and really quick to make sense of my first impression. I always look at what kind of shoes someone is wearing, particularly in a first impression kind of situation.

    For me on dates, I always do a little research, if we going to a special restaurant, I try and know something about it. If we going to the movies, I will read the reviews, if we going to a bar or out somewhere I research it, I hate being in loud places on dates, I never want to be in a situation where we are screaming at each other because it is loud. As you can tell I am "THE PLANNER"

    Shave, Play 90s rap music, smoke in the shower, masturbate (so I won't get eager during the date), FaceTime a friend to make sure I look sharp, take a shot, then head out. I never overplan dates because it makes it less fun and seems like you're taking a test instead of getting to know someone. I'm really outgoing so if he doesn't like my personality, my cologne or the way I dress, it's a dud lol

    Regular degular stuff...shower, shit, alphet. Either than that, I always make sure to cut my nails (long nails period are always a no go) or if they're already cut, get rid of any dirt under them. Hands are probably second thing I notice on a person.

    Only other thing is I brush my teeth and rinse with mouthwash right before I get out of the car; teeth fetish, sorry.

    None of the dates I've been on were planned dates. Typically it went like this: let's chill at my place turned into okay, Ī'm hungry let's go to this bomb restaurant even though you aren't dressed well and didn't plan on spending cash. So I end up going along and looking bummy. Recently I went on a date in Nov. after work which was a bad idea because I caught a cold and I wasn't fresh - me and dude still chat so I guess it wasn't a big deal.

    If I go on another date that's well planned I will do the basics I'm sure. But it's also cool to know that during certain circumstances some dudes don't give af.

    I would prepare for it all....who knows how the night may go. I would definitely have topics, potentially personal, prepared just to see how the mindset of the person with whom I am going out with. Likes, dislikes, personality. I'm a serious person so it would help if the person is gumorous but down to eartg and can understand who I am. Sex happens, it happens.

    I try to have energy on a date. Hate it when the other person looks sleepy from a long day of work or seems a bit disintersted early on. People are attracted to energy, it really does change the mood no matter how the date goes.

    Nothing special, just basics, wash my ass, quick shape-up trim if need be, etc. Wine and music while I get ready. Brush teeth just before I leave.

    I'm a more chill person in general so I make sure to keep high energy while I'm out.

    For those that smoke, please don't show up on a date with me and you're not a functional tree smoker...that shit is unattractive af. I shouldn't be able to tell that you're high (most times I can anyway bc I used to smoke but if you keep up with the night I'm not mad).
