On a first date with an athletic guy, keep your outfit simple. A pair of nice jeans and a silky tank top with a light sweater or jacket is perfect for a casual date. Wear flats, low-heeled boots or a low-heeled sandal. For a more formal evening out, wear a short dress with a flared skirt, tights and high-heeled pumps. Comfort and ease of movement is the key when dressing for a date with an athletic guy because you never know what he's going to pull out of his sleeve – an impromptu game of one-on-one or a casual stroll in the park – at the end of the date.
Keep make-up simple when dating an athletic guy. He'll be turned off if you show up wearing inch-thick make-up, heavy false eyelashes and glittery eye shadow. And if you have to keep checking your make-up during the night, there won't be a second date. For a casual date, wear a light foundation, soft eyeliner and mascara to bring out your eyes. Stick to natural colors that blend well with your skin. Make-up that is waterproof and has sun block may be a good idea if you are going to be outside. If the date is more formal, add a soft eye shadow, a little darker eyeliner, blush, and a natural lip gloss. The goal is to highlight your beauty, not cover it up. Keep hair simple too – leave it down, pull it into a neat ponytail or up into a simple knot.
Athletic guys are generally outgoing, confident men who enjoy the outdoors and some type of sport. Topics that are sure to open up the conversation are questions about what he does for a living, what his favorite sport is and places he enjoys going to on vacation. Hopefully, he will ask a few questions of his own to get to know you better to.
