I read somewhere that you only really see what someone looks like in the first few minutes of meeting them. After that, their appearance is changed to you, colored by what you think and feel about them.

Interesting to think about. First impressions may be important, but according to this, the thoughts and feelings we invoke in someone are even more important.

So true! Thus the importance of a positive attitude and kind words and actions!

That's interesting, but I agree. It's strange how we can jump to conclusions so fast about someone we've just met.

I've always thought that once you really get to know someone, you are no longer capable of seeing them objectively.
