No matter what you have heard, first impressions are very important. They may not always be correct but they can nevertheless be memorable and long-lasting. For example, when I first met one of my closest friends, I thought she was very reserved and kept to herself. We laugh about it to this day.
However, when it comes to relationships, people may not be as patient and forgiving. A bad first date does not always encourage a second one, especially when mistakes were within your control. People make great first impressions when they are considerate, friendly, approachable, kind and social. If it doesn’t work out, you may make a connection as a friend or professional contact, which may lead you closer to the person that is better suited for you. Therefore, it is important to make every meeting you have with someone meaningful for all aspects of your life.
