Don’t plan a first date for Halloween. It’s awkward enough trying to be yourself in the beginning. The last thing you want is to meet someone for the first time — in costume.
Do wear a fun and flirtatious costume. But, know where to draw the line. A costume that reveals too much can give the wrong impression. (And guys, it’s okay to dress up for Halloween. Just make sure your costume’s not too aggressive or scary. And don’t dress up as a woman, for obvious reasons.)
Do get as much mileage out of your costume as possible. Wear it to parties, school, work (if appropriate). It can be a great conversation starter.
Do go to a friend or family member’s Halloween party. Remember, meeting someone through friends or family can be a great way to find a quality person. They do some of the pre-screening for you.
Do bring a wing-man or wing-woman to a Halloween party. Otherwise, all those masked people can feel a little intimidating. Also, it’s easy to take on a character when you’re in costume. But, having a friend along will keep you grounded, so you won’t do anything you’ll regret.
Do have fun! There’s nothing more attractive that someone who’s enjoying themself. (And when guys are asked what they find sexy, it’s “confidence.”) So, rock that costume. And have a good time!
