1st impressions

“First impressions are most lasting.”
Okay, but is it all about appearances?

It is said that first impressions are formed within just a few seconds. Then probably the easiest way to create them would be simply judging from looks, and apparently that’s the only way for many.

I am not a critic here. I’m wondering why I just can’t do the same. Sounds too beautiful? Oh no, this is a serious problem of mine.

Whenever my friends walking beside me ask, “Hey, did you see that cute guy?” I am like “which one?”

It is also true I can’t really answer to the questions such as; “Who’s your favorite movie star?” because I don’t have any celeb acquaintances.

However, not once or twice I was told I’m rather picky and only go for good-lookings. I don’t have the slightest idea what they are talking about.

Well, let’s admit that I’m picky, because I do have some no’s. I trust my gut telling me what kinds of persons could be my close friends. I think that greatly depends on his/her way of talking. Later on, I happen to notice that s/he is not merely a wonderful person but also nice to look at.

Is it that weird if I’m very poor at recognizing appearances, so I have to take a certain period (at least more than “a few seconds”) to store the images on my brain, and then slowly start forming the impressions?

  1. First impressions always decieve me… What shall I believe?
    People with good impressions turn out to be less atractive after a while.
    Few exceptions will be my best friends. 🙂

    hmm…that's interesting. Point-deduction versus point-addition, right? 😉
