When this happens, the date often becomes unproductive and un-enjoyable. This is why it’s imperative to know the importance of trying your best to look good. Here are some of the reasons why you should also pay attention to how you look when it comes to dating again:
It can make you look like you’re over your ex
Unknown to many, one of the best ways to get over a long term relationship is to work on your physical features, such as your physique and your overall look. This is because looking good can cause others to view you in a new light. In a study that was published in the Journal of Personality and Social Psychology, people who look good are often viewed in a positive light. They are perceived to be more honest, kind, and loving than others, especially by those who they have never met before. This means that by working hard to look your best, your dates won’t expect that you’re still lingering from a breakup.
It can motivate you to go out more
When it comes to dating after a long term relationship, one of the most common problems for people is feeling confident with the way that they look. This is because being committed to the same person for so long can make you become somewhat lackluster when it comes to maintaining your outer appearance. You have become so used to going out with the same person who has seen you at your worst that you begin to adapt the mentality that you don’t need to take care of yourself as much as you used to. You may also begin to think that you cannot compete with those who’ve been on more dates than you. By working hard to get a toned body or a healthy physique, you’ll feel like you look good enough to jump back into the dating game again and actually attract someone.
The date may end with physical intimacy
Many relationship experts agree that when it comes to dating again, being physically intimate with your new date is advisable. This is because being physically intimate with someone can make it easier for you to accept the fact that you’re moving on and that you’re ready for new relationships. However, this will become impossible if you don’t think that you look good enough since you won’t have the courage to be intimate with someone else other than your ex.

So what are you waiting for? Hit the gym or go to the spa before you start dating again.
