The first person you need to impress is yourself. When you look good you feel good. Take advantage of what modern science has created in field of beauty. From getting basic proper shampoo and conditioner for you hair to hair regrowth products and surgery, from makeup to enhance your features to elective surgery for more dramatic effects. Your wardrobe should be a priority issue as well. If you are still showing up at door to pick up your date in those same ripped jeans you have had since 1980's, think about a complete wardrobe overhaul. Getting in shape is an absolute must. Not only does it show that you care about your body, it is essential for your health and it will help you to feel great physically and emotionally. The better you feel about yourself, more confident you will appear. And confidence is a very sexy and appealing part of your overall appearance.
In her book Dr. Etcoff assumes that people, mostly men, are more attracted to beautiful people for short term relationships while beauty is less important when seeking a committed relationship. However, it is that attractive quality of sex appeal which will get you in door. When you are just getting to know people for dating purposes such as with use of online dating resources, your appearance is going to be one of most compelling forces in attracting dates. Everyone wants someone to fall in love with them for right reasons, but you can't change basic human instinct and natural affinity for beauty. You don't have to be most beautiful or most handsome person in room, but you can take time and effort to look best you possibly can.
