From the very first days of my relationship with my fiance, she's been trying to change how I dress. I used to be very hostile to this, and try to fight it every inch of the way. I realize now it's actually a blessing in disguise. I've got someone way more in touch with fashion and with what women find attractive, giving me personal advice for free, and even willing to throw in some cash to get me dressing better.
Over the last three years my entire wardrobe has been completely transformed by my fiance. I used to dress like a slob, wore clothes sized XL even though I'm definitely more of a S or M. Had no idea how to match things. I wore flannel jackets all the time. Now I look like kind of a classy guy. I wear real shoes and not sneakers. My pants and jeans fit. I wear name brands. I wear sweaters that fit my body and couldn't hold another 1 or 2 guys in them. I look like a different person.
Nonetheless, there were two things that I felt were minor touches that I really didn't want to modify. I was too lazy to put in contact lenses every morning, so I always wore glasses. The second thing was, I refused to put gel in my hair. It just felt too gay to me and I didn't feel like myself.
However, over the last month and a half, I've started wearing my contacts every weekday, and putting gel in my hair nearly everyday. Changing these two small things have made a huge difference. Not only is my fiance saying I look way better, but other females I'm around have definitely taken notice. Two "small" touches really finished my transformation. It takes me an extra five minutes each morning to put in my contacts and throw some gel in my hair, but the effects last all day. I get a whole day boost in how attractive and confident I look. Everyone that sees me sees that I took an extra five minutes to look that much better. It's a good thing.
Next step: get a good cologne.
