    You don't have to be super fancy, but at least put some effort into your attire.

    2. Work your look.

    Goes hand-in-hand with your outfit. You don't need makeup and all that jazz, but at least make sure your hair is combed. Personal hygiene is sexy.

    3. Arrive Early.

    No one likes waiting around for someone who shows up to a date two hours late.

    4. But if you ARE going to be late, let them know.

    None of this, "Oh, sorry. Traffic." You pick that phone up and tell them you're running late, and that you're really, really sorry.

    5. When you do get there, know how to make a damn entrance.

    6. It's okay to be nervous.
