.. but is it?
Much has been written ,published, exercised, practiced and preached about making a good first impression. So much so that the genuineness of the same is always in question.
You meet a person who has learned to manipulate the squeeze pressure and timing of the first handshake, the first drink to order, the cool demeanor and the perfect opening line that will grab you by the eyeballs.
First impressions can be tricky, how do I know whether it is the real projection of the self or a patiently practiced eye wash?
How much time will it take me to go figure?
Would the discovery be significant enough that I regret your acquaintance or rejoice that I have your company?
More importantly, how much longer can you keep up the act?
