Well, July last year, I faced this situation. I had a typical arranged marriage. I met my hub on jeevansathi.com and had spoken over the phone a couple of times. He came to meet me a couple of days later. I was feeling nervous but wanted to make a good impression too. I decided to play safe and wore my favorite black dress. One would frown and think, black during an auspicious occassion. Well, it turned out that he liked my dress and my sense of style a lot. heehee.

Just dress up in a way where you feel confident and comfortable.You should not be worried about the dressing and miss the opportunity to impress her.Neat and tidy is enough.And once you start to speak,your dress will not be counted upon more.So,I like to wear a dress in which I will appreciate myself.Cheers!

This is a very good answer. Dress has an important part in imerssing the person, but like you, I also think it is more about how you communicate with the person. Yes, it is important to be neat and tidy and feel yourself comortable the dress.

For Women: I think the simpler teh better. I have seen many women who dress up very casual and simple and still look elegand. And i think most men also prefer simple women. Next, it depends on the time you are planning to meet the guy/gal. So the choice of colors depends on the time,weather and mood of the day. For Men: I think men should dress up in a more formal way if he is meeting the gal for the first time. And ofcouse the place and the time really matters. No one would want to look out of place - just imagine your would-be or BF wears a three piece suit to an amusement park, only because it is your first date or meeting :P - LOL Men/Guyz please don't take it offensive - was just running my imagination wild :)

I would find out where we would be going first. Then I would find the cutest outfit I had, if it is a casual outing I would wear nice jeans and a great top like I have this black lacy one that is beautiful. If it is somewhat fancy then I would wear a cute dress. I think if you have been talking to someone for a while and you're going to meet for the first time, you should be yourself and dress the way you want.

You sound perfect...I like your dress sense...I also felt the same when I had to meet my boyfriend who I married now :-)...Thanks

It would depend on where the date was. If it was a really fancy dress I would probably dress up in a suit, but if it was just a drink in a bar and maybe a club after I would dress a bit more casually.

Well I think it entirely depends on the date. Is this a dinner date? If so, I would wear a casual dress and some pumps. If it's colder outside, perhaps a pair of dark, straight legged jeans, heels, and a flattering top. Ultimately, it depends on the date though.

not to flashy and not to ordinary just enough and of course he have to let you know where he is taking you and what he will ware so that the two of you would match up... I bet you are excited on this one.... I do wish this time would come to me soon with my gf but I guess I will still have to wait a bit...

I am not a blind date type of person. I have dated some men that I don't know well and I think it is best to stick to being just who I am. I don't want to go all out to impress someone give them the wrong impression of who I really am. On a first date, I usually let the guy know right off that I am not into big fancy places where I have to get all dressed up. I prefer something casual where I can dress decent but myself. I am a jeans person and I'm perfectly comfortable in a low key restraunt. I'm ok with just hanging out and cooking home. Likewise...I don't want a guy to go all out to impress me. I want to know who they are. First dates are tense enough. Just keep it low key. Be yourself. If I only knew someone over the phone...I'd want to meet him in a neutral place...like a coffee shop and I'd dress how I dress all the time. I would not stress out about the outfit too much at all. just be you.

I have faced the above described situation in real life. Your discussion made me think about that special day. Thanks! I met my husband through shaadi.com. We talked over phone for many days and sent emails. Finally, we decided to meet. We decided to meet at 6 pm, but it was 6:10 pm, when I reached home from office. I was confused what dress to wear. I tried various dresses, but was not statisfied. My roommates made fun of me seeing my tension. Finally I wore a white top with yellow top and pant. I had trouble arranging my hair also. I tried so many different and creative ways and finally decided to go ahead with my usual hair style. This happened almost one year ago.
