SO you’ve downloaded the TrueView app, met your perfect match and you can’t wait for the all-important date… but what do you need to do to get ready so that you’re at the top of your game?
Confidence is key, and as you already will already have an insight into your date’s social life before you meet thanks to TrueView’s technology, you will have plenty of time to concentrate on just being yourself.
However, there are a few little tips and tricks that we think will put you in the right frame of mind to have a great time.
So we present, The Pillow Guide: Top Tips For Pre-Date Prep.
Manicure & Pedicure
You’ve met your match on TrueView, but you don’t want to go over the top and look too dressed up… but you would like to show that you’ve made an effort.
You don’t have to splash out a lot of money on this, but having polished nails sends a subtle signal that you like to take care of yourself.
Chipped varnish may look rock n’ roll, but a perfectly groomed set show that you are in control and ready for anything.
We recommend: Tweezerman Cuticle Clippers, Sally Hansen Double Duty Base & Top Coat and OPI’s Lincoln Park After Dark polish – a deep plum that makes nails look gorgeous.
If you want a professional to work their magic head to Footopia, near Sloane Square in West London. They are the best in the business at caring for your tootsies, and they do a pretty mean manicure there too.
When you’ve found your match via TrueView, there’s not going to be any nasty surprises as you’ve already clocked what your date likes getting up to by using the app’s technology.
Using the app – or mobile web version if you are on android or Blackberry – couldn’t be easier.
You simply update your ‘status’ each time you log in, and start to build a profile of what you like getting up to. Messaging is easy too, meaning that there are no awkward moments when chatting to someone.
Have a few fun facts about your common interests in the back of your mind
You already will have built up a rapport with your date using TrueView, so don’t run out of conversation starters when you finally meet up.
If you both like foreign films or like going to the BFI in Southbank, London, knowing a couple of relevant movies that are coming out in the next few months will show that you are fun, and score you major points.
What to wear
Don’t mistakenly think this is the time to wheel out those red wedges that you can’t walk in, or that super tight dress that shows off everything if you put your hands above your head.
If you are most comfy in jeans and a loose top, go for that, or a nice summer dress that you feel a million dollars in.
Show off your quirky side with some fab accessories and go for a mid-low heel so that you can easily wear all night.
You want to be linking arms because you like each other, not that you may topple into the Thames if you walk unsupported.
Finally, don’t forget to be safe, tell a pal who you are meeting and where and most of all have fun!
