When was your first impression of someone you met for the first time totally wrong?

    Gut instinct is something to hold onto. The idea that you will like everyone after you meet them is in my eyes totally impossible. Lucky friend! I think I will trust my first instincts every time. Thanks for the comment

    I have discovered that one cannot judge a person by his or her looks or as my mother would say, 'never to judge a book by it's cover' I think this was sound advice. Thanks for your comment savvydating.

    In a sense, it is nice to be proved wrong, especially when your experience turned out to be such a positive one. One certainly cannot judge a book by it's cover. Thanks for your comment.

    Hi DexisView It seems that many people are attracted to people with good looks. The men with good looks seem to get the ladies with good looks! Not sure that the outside always reflects what is inside the package. Thanks for your comment.

    I am sorry to hear that. It is a shame when our judgement is so way out that it leaves you feeling that you can't always trust your own judgement.

    Finding someone who shares at least a few of our interest is really important. Perhaps it is nothing to do with first impressions at all though from my own point of view, I do think a good first impression really counts.

    Thanks BKCreative

    That is so nice DDE - having a great neighbor must be something special to have. I have had a few which were less than neighborly. I hope you friendship continues to grow. Thanks for your comment.

    Yes, it does hurt. I think that sometimes we should value ourselves more and take a backseat for a while before plunging into a new relationship. Have a little 'me' time and spoil yourself.

    Sadly, this is an experience shared by many people. It is my impression that the brighter the cover the more shallow is the interior:) Thanks for stopping by to comment.
