First impressions are everything?

Or do you think people should be given more than 1 chance. At least a second time to try and put the best foot forward. Have you ever met anyone who bombed on the first meeting? Did you give them that second chance? If you did, did it go better? One of the people I gave a second chance to is now one of my best friends. If I hadn't given it another try, I'd have missed out on an awesome friend.

I think that people should be given more then one chance. I know I need it sometimes. Not everyone is in a chirpy mood all the time so thy might come off as a grouch on occasion and that wouldn't make for a good first impression. I myself give second and even third chances before I write them off as "It's gotta be how they are" always. I know I wouldn't wanna be judged how I am on certain occasions I know I can be cranky.

I think people should be given more than one chance. You may have caught someone at a bad time or they could be a shy or backward person and do not know how to act when they first meet someone.

Well, there are a lot of people who try too hard to impress on the 1st impressions that's why they fail very badly? But there are those who are actors & great pretenders also, right? I think we can't always just judge a book by it's cover.

I think a lot of people make bad first impressions. I try to not judge people based on a first impression. I am sure I have not made a good impression a few times and I would not want someone judging me based on it. Now, some people make a bad first impression and a bad second and third. I try to stay away from those people.

A lot of people believe that first impressions are everything.But I believe that you can't really know a man only by the first impression.
