The first impression is probably the most influence you can have in the relationship and it’s important to be yourself during this conversation. If you can’t be yourself with someone maybe it’s best to find out before the relationship starts. How many relationships have started because of something funny or unique that caught someone’s attention. A lot. Love it or hate it every relationship has a “how we met” moment. I’ve never heard of someone who has ever looked at someone and said hi because of how extraordinarily “normal” they look.
We pay the most attention during a first impression and a false impression only burdens you with the expectation of living up to it. Mind your hygiene and be the best “you” that you can be. Always. Not just when you’re on the hunt! I’m not just talking in appearances but also in your habits. Work on improving yourself to meet your highest standards of character, morality and don’t expect any less. If someone catches you in an off moment, don’t worry about it. It was meant to be. I go to the store without makeup as often as I go with makeup. I dress up as often as I dress down. It’s just what I’m doing and how I’m doing it. This is my world. I “live” here.
Every day you try is another day closer to your goal even if you mess up a day or two. Respect yourself by being the best you that you can be!
