Are first impressions reliable?

Have you ever been out and met someone who you instantly didn’t like? The person just rubbed you the wrong way because they said or did something that turned you off.  When that person later turns out to be someone you become friends with or date, you have to wonder how reliable our first impressions really are.

So often we seem to make so many snap judgments and quick superficial scans and we actually rule a potential romance out based on this.  When you think of your best relationships or closest friendships, do you remember what you first thought about that person when you met?

Do you think your first impressions on the dating scene gets you a second look or makes people steer clear?

HAPPY MONDAY! How was your weekend? Did you have any first impressions (good or bad) this weekend?

i’m pretty sure she was too exhausted to feel lonely. just speaking from experience.

No, I think TIGER was too EXHAUSTED!

She’s married to a billionaire, doesn’t have to cook or clean or do nothing if she doesn’t want to – exhausted doing WHAT?

Funny thing is… it seems like the poorest of my people are the most racist…

@Tiger??
On rehab: “I was in there for 45 days and it was to take a hard look at myself, and I did, and I’ve come out better. I’m certainly a much better person for it than I was going in. Does that mean I’m ever going to stop doing that? No, I’ve got to still continue with my treatment. And that’s not going to stop in the near future for sure.” Asked what the treatment was for, Woods said: “That’s personal.”

Does that mean I’m ever going to stop doing that? No, I’ve got to ……..????
