How to Mess Up Your First Impression
One summer afternoon I witnessed a handsome single man at my local elegant French bistro throw away his chance to make a great first impression. I was enjoying a glass of my favorite beverage and reading my kindle as this scenario unfolded.
He called a woman on his cell phone and invited her to have a drink with him. The attractive blonde soon arrived... dressed casually in a linen white top and designer jeans.
When she saw his graphic tee shirt, cut off pinstriped bermuda shorts, and old jogging shoes, she sniffed with contempt and almost left at first glance. However, she reluctantly approached his table and looked down on him.
He invited her to sit and asked her what she would like to drink. She declined to sit and said she was going to take a look at a sale in a boutique down the street. She pivoted on her heel and left.
The confused man turned to me and said,”Women! What was that about?”
I put down my kindle and gently asked him, “Why are you wearing
that in this place? You’re a smart and handsome man. You should be wearing something to showcase
those qualities... Of course, she left. You show no respect for a classy woman in that funky outfit.
“Oh,” he said. “I think I learned something.”
