“The date starts way before you show up on the date,” Logan Ury, director of relationship science at dating app Hinge and author of best-selling How To Not Die Alone tells Vogue. “The date starts hours before; when you’re getting into the mindset for the date. So, whether you think the date will go poorly, or you think the date will go well, you’re right,” she explains. “The way to get into the right mindset for dating is wearing an outfit that you feel great in.”

Surely, nobody actively tries to wear an outfit they feel less than great in, but high-stakes situations can lead to sartorial overthinking. There’s a lot to juggle: cultural norms to adhere to, the desire to honor your personal style, and the activity you’re doing on said date, to name a few. All valid considerations that can muddy the waters between what you may “want” to wear and what you feel you “should” wear. While your outfit may look the part, if it doesn’t get you in the right headspace, it’s already wrong.

The Best Black Jeans for Men to Wear Right Now

  The Best Black Jeans for Men to Wear Right Now Black jeans, the onetime favorite of goth kids in malls and German DJs, have beaten out blue for a good reason: they're more polished. GQ's Best Stuff has the perfect pair at every price point.But what are the right black jeans for you? Are they pitch black and pressed, or washed and thrashed? Are they slim-cut or wide-leg? Crisp and light or heavy and fuzzy? For such a simple garment, there are more spins on black denim out there than there are flavors at Baskin-Robbins. So we did the hard work for you and rounded up all of the ones that matter—the very best black jeans for men to buy right now.

And if you are what Ury calls a “hesitator” (someone who feels they aren’t ready to date until they’ve lost ten pounds, landed a new job, cleaned up their apartment, etc.), you can get debilitated by the task of finding a good date night outfit that helps exude confidence. “How do we reduce the friction to actually get them out there and get them dating again?” Ury asks rhetorically, “Because nobody is ever one-hundred percent ready for anything, and nobody is ever 100 percent ready for dating,” One of Ury’s solutions? Having a few fantastic date outfits ready and on hand. “Not having any clothes that are flattering, or that fit well, or that you’re comfortable in could be yet another excuse for why you think you shouldn’t go on a date,” she says.

Her recommendation is to have “three to four outfits that you feel comfortable in, that you feel make you look attractive, desirable, confident—an outfit that helps you look and feel your best. Then, you are going to bring that confident, sexy, flirty energy to the date,” she explains. In order to ensure you’ve hit the fashionable-mark is by testing it out in advance. “Make sure you have a bra that is comfortable, not one where the straps are constantly falling off, and you’re adjusting it, or your pants aren’t so tight that you can get them on, but you can’t comfortably sit at a picnic,” she explains. “A date is all about bringing your best, most confident self… part of that is having an outfit that really makes you feel your best.”

What exactly that may look like will vary from person to person. If you love dresses, honor that. If you feel your best in a pair of jeans, then jeans are the answer. If you’re someone who keeps their outfits pretty low-key from day to day, show up as your authentic self in more casual yet polished wardrobe essentials like a button-up and flats. If you love stilettos and wear them on the regular, great! If you’re someone who, while wearing high-heels on a date, may think to yourself, I hope I don’t have to walk too far to the next bar, then a more walkable heel is the answer. The outfit shouldn’t be wearing you.

According to Ury, one of the biggest myths in dating is the idea of the spark. “As a dating coach, I talk to people after they’ve gone on dates, and what I often hear is he was so great, I really enjoyed the date… I’m not going to see him again,” she says. “The spark has become this all-encompassing term that means, I didn’t feel instant chemistry, I didn’t feel fireworks, and I believe it’s become one of the most problematic aspects of modern dating,” she explains. According to Ury, the spark can grow over time. “A lot of people are with someone they met years ago, or who they worked with, or who they were roommates with, and the spark can grow over time as you get to know someone,” she explains.

“Some people are also very sparky—they’re very hot, they’re very charming, they may even be very narcissistic, and they really give you this feeling of connection. So you assume the fact that you feel a spark with them is a good thing, but it might just be that they’re sparky, and they give that feeling to everyone,” she says. “It could also be that what you’re feeling is actually anxiety, that you’re confusing that feeling with butterflies, and you don’t know if this person likes you or not. You’re thinking that unknown feeling is the spark,” Ury explains that people also confuse the concept of a spark with the viability of a relationship. “That’s absolutely not true. It’s enough to get you in a relationship, but it’s definitely not enough to keep the relationship going.”

What Is Catastrophizing?

  What Is Catastrophizing? Does one bad date make you fear you'll be alone forever? You may be catastrophizing—a type of cognitive distortion that makes worst-case scenarios seem likelier than they are. The post What Is Catastrophizing? appeared first on The Healthy.

“I believe that a lot of us suffer from dating blindspots, which are patterns of behavior or ways of thinking that hold us back from finding love,” explains Ury. “So, you could go on 50 first dates and not change your pattern.” To Ury, it isn’t just a numbers game. “What I recommend people should do is take an audit of their dating history… It’s not enough to keep dating, you have to make a plan to overcome [your dating blindspots], break them, and do something different in the future.” For starters, relieve yourself from sartorial stress with our guide to winter date night outfits.

Before the era of online shopping, the department store Sears published its first holiday catalog in 1934. It started a tradition of kids circling pictures of toys they wanted from Santa and had adults bookmarking jewelry, appliances and more gift ideas. The nostalgic trend is being kept alive after Amazon began sending out its own toy catalogue in 2018 and is bringing it back this year. NBC’s Harry Smith reports in this week’s Sunday Spotlight.
