Do you give new people you meet a second chance to make a first impression?
Some people make great first impressions and turn out to be phony once you get to know them. Some people make horrible first impressions because well, they are horrible. Many make a great first impression because they are genuine. If you met one of these less than desirable people would you give them a second chance to improve or are you done after the initial meeting?
I believe in giving a second chance to anyone whom I might meet. And if in the second chance they are still lacking in the manners, attitude and personality---then I put these people in the past and repast category.
This means if I see them at the same event or etc.--- I speak and go on without conversation.
If it's for dating purposes, yes, they get a second chance IF there's a connection because dating is nerve-racking.
I am not a social person, so I make no extra efforts to accept people into my life. I immediately reject any behaviors that I find distasteful, such as dishonesty, rudeness, or excessive use of shallow cliche's and trendy catch-phrases. I like people who are honest and sensitive and intimate. So, no; no second chances with me.
I constantly change my idea of individuals as we continue seeing each other. Most individuals are entirely different in their personal life and at work. So I always analyze them to try to understand them better. One of my favorites is looking at their desk and analyzing the space based on the person to see what they are like.
