Have you noticed: your first date and trick-or-treating
Both require identical preparations and it’s all about wear and where.
Dressing – or selecting a costume- for Trick or Treating on Halloween and for that all-important first date requires an inordinate amount of time. You want to look good and make a statement. You forage through closets and drawers to select the right thing to wear. Women often aim for hauntingly beautiful or the girl-next-door costume. Good advice for guys is to appear like more like a superhero, less like a monster.
Deciding where to go Trick or Treating or for a first date requires that you carefully plan and plot. Both parties agree to meeting in a safe, well lighted neighborhood. You naturally avoid ‘dark and spooky,’ at all costs. You agree upon the perfect witching hour. Your spirits are up, and it’s time! The scariest thing that can happen? You don’t look like your picture. One of you is spooky, kooky or creepy. Your costume is all-wrong. At the end of the night, you want to think, “Sweet!” You don’t want to walk away thinking, “What a witch,” or “What a monster,” and return home empty handed.
Relax, enjoy one another and skip the trick, have fun and go straight for the ‘treats’.
