Dressing up for Halloween can have a number of advantages. For instance, it is the only time of year where it is socially acceptable to wear clothing that can scare other people. If the fear factor is not your goal, this time of the year is the perfect opportunity to flash some serious skin while you are in public.
However, donning a great Halloween costume can have another unexpected benefit – it can also impress your date! If you find this fact hard to believe, then just check out some of these reasons why a costume can help you to cement your relationship status:
Costumes Can Reveal Your Fun Side
If you are willing to wear a costume, this will tell your date that you are someone who doesn’t mind having a laugh. After all, someone who takes themselves too seriously would never even consider wearing something as flashy as a Halloween getup! This, of course, is definitely a side of you that you want to showcase.
Especially in the early stages of dating, fun is important! So, if your day can see firsthand that you are someone who loves to let your hair down, they are bound to find you more attractive. So, if you are looking to move things along with your courtship, a costume will certainly come in handy.
They Let You Highlight Your Best Asset
Let’s be honest, as a woman, when was the last you could go out in public with a plunging neckline and fishnet stockings without earning some odd stares. And if you are a guy, going shirtless or wearing a revealing outfit probably wouldn’t go over so well on any other day. On Halloween, though, all bets are off.
So, Halloween costumes are a great way to show off some of your best assets without making it look like you are going overboard. This is an excellent opportunity if you haven’t made it to the third date yet. You can show them what they are missing out on while still remaining in character!
Costumes Show That You Can Be Creative
Whether you are a man or a woman, there is something incredibly sexy about a partner that is artistic or creative. Knowing that someone is able to be innovative or resourceful lets you know that they are more than capable of keeping things interesting. Of course, men, in particular, can have a tough time adding creative flair to their regular clothes.
During Halloween, though, you are given a creative license and you can take this is as far as you want. By making an effort with your costume, you are showing your date just how imaginative you can be. You guarantee that this is a trait that they will be looking out for.
They Can Let You Reveal Another Side of You
Costumes aren’t just about dressing up. They can also be handy in revealing some hidden or interesting facts about yourself. For instance, do you come off as being a little reserved but actually have a wild side? Then an animal-based costume is sure to send the right message.
Or, maybe, you have your good guy image down pat but are actually a bit of a bad boy as well. You can flaunt this side of you by flaunting your best version of Tyler Durden in Fight Club or James Dean. Your outfit will reveal your personality a lot more than words ever could.
Matching with Your Date Shows Commitment
If you know what your date is wearing and match him or her as closely as possible, then this shows real commitment. If your costumes automatically reveal that you guys are an adorable couple, is there even any need to have a “define the relationship” conversation? Probably not!
It also definitely shows that you are willing to make an effort with your relationship, even if the two of you have only started dating recently. Once again, you can let your Halloween costume do all the talking so that you don’t have to say too much yourself.
It is clear that picking the right Halloween costume can do a lot to impress your date. So, be extra careful when selecting your outfit. It could be just the thing to solidify your relationship with the person that you really like.
