Whether you’ve been together for 5 days or 50 years, make an effort.
When you start seeing someone, it’s always so easy to put in the time trying to look good, smell nice and feel attractive. But this shouldn’t change as the relationship progresses. Naturally your partner will love and accept you as you are, but that doesn’t mean they won’t appreciate the effort.
Dating in the beginning is all butterflies and adrenaline, fresh haircuts and expensive colognes or perfumes. As weeks turn into months and years, the butterflies become a quiet confidence, adrenaline is contentment (and these are good things), but fresh haircuts turn into a quick running of your hand through your locks and expensive fragrance becomes a spray of deodorant over your clothes.
While millions of relationships survive well on a lot less than this, any relationship would improve if your partner felt you were putting in the effort to impress them by looking your best.
This is not to mention how your own self-esteem would improve. Looking good is feeling good. So, upgrade the deo for a seductive scent and get your mojo back.
