    What single impression do you want people to walk away with after first meeting you?

    First impressions are important; you may never get a chance to change someone's opinion of you. Even if you do get the chance, it can be very difficult to overwrite that first impression. What single aspect of your character do you want people to understand after they meet you for the first time?

    I love when people know me and they say I am a funny and loveable person.
    Still I am aware of the fact that people use to think that I am an introvert and shy person who is possible not interested in them.
    This is not true, but I am sure a bit cautious with a stranger, that's what my mom taught me smile.

    I would hope they found me to be friendly and willing to be their friend. I hope that I would have conveyed my full acceptance of them.

    When a person meets me for the first time I hope they think that I am kind, understanding and fun to be with.

    Oh dear..
    I don't want to meet anyone who would base his entire opinion of me in one single meeting..
    Life is too short to worry about first impressions..

    I try to give people I first meet the feeling that I am friendly and willing to help other
    people.  I also want them to know I can be rather nasty when I
    need to put people in their place.  I take a lot.  I know I do many stupid things, and
    make mistakes but some people just try to take advantage of others.  I have friends who never take up for themselves.  That just isn't me.  Most people are nice and I seldom have problems. I am cautious but I am a great friend and have
    many long time friendships.  Old friends are the best.

    Acceptance of what I am.

    I meet people with sincerity and hope they will accept for what I am as I do not put up a false front.

    I hope that they get the impression that *they* are absolutely wonderful. That's how I feel about them. If I leave them feeling wonderful about themselves, then I have no worries about me at all.

    I would like them to know that I am friendly, polite, kind and understanding, which I am. They should enjoy my company. Although I believe, one meeting is not enough to judge a person, but we do want to be in our best behavior in our first meeting with someone, do'nt we?

    I hope that people take away that I am a honest person. I live what I preach and try not to be a hypocrite. So many people these days live according to the "Jones." I hope I am never viewed as one of those people.

    I would like to put forth my honesty, as being trustworthy is important for your success in life.

    I would love if they come to think of me as a person with positive attitude about life. As I am very choosy about friends I do not want to make people think at first meeting that i am very friendly. Again I am an introvert so keeping my limitations in mind the impression of at least a positive attitude is just fine with me.
