When you hear the phrase bachelor’s pad, you think of a sleek apartment, with high-end furniture. You may also think that the owner of the said apartment is a man of the world – stylish, well-spoken, and well-read. Most often than not, this only appears in movies. Some of the bachelor pads of today don’t really resemble the bachelor pads in movies. Despite this, there’s one lesson that you need to remember – your apartment can say a lot of things about you. On that note, you probably shouldn’t invite your date home unless you’ve done the tasks on the list below.
Don’t Invite Your Date Home If It’s Going To Make A Bad Impression
Just like showing up to a date in a presentable outfit, how your apartment looks will greatly affect how your date views you. For example, if your apartment has trash everywhere, your date might think that you’re not a clean person or that you are not organized. In a general sense, this could translate to you being a burden when you are in an actual relationship. On the other hand, once you invite your date home and he or she sees that everything is in order, your date will only think positive thoughts about you. This is why you need to go through the checklist below before you invite your date home:
1. Clean Up
It is a no-brainer! You need to clean and tidy up. You don’t have to disinfect your entire apartment but make sure that everything looks neat and presentable.
2. Picture Frames
When you invite your date home and she sees that you have a poster or a photo framed, hanging on the wall, it’s going to be a nice conversation starter. Also, picture frames tell your guests that you pay attention to details.
3. Basic Kitchen Supplies
If your date is staying over, how will she be able to cook you breakfast if you don’t have any kitchen tools? Having basic kitchen tools tells your date that you are part of the grown-up world, a world filled with people who know how to cook a meal. While you’re at it, don’t forget the coasters. They’re not basic kitchen supplies but they do add a nice extra touch.
4. Scented Candle
If you want your entire apartment so smell nice and have a romantic vibe to it, scented candles are the key. They easily set the mood up when the lights are dim.
These are all the essential tasks and items that you need. When you have or have done all four, you can invite your date home with confidence. For other dating tips, read more posts on our blog.
