im going to be totally honest.
i judge books by their covers.
literally and figuratively.
whenever im in a bookstore or library and i dont have a particular book in mind, i select the books i pull from the shelves by how attractive their spine is.
it may the the colour, the size or the words that attract me but i leave everything to the first impression that the book gives me.
isnt it much like how life is in general.
people work so hard to make a good first impression on people the want to, well, impress.
you would never look gross and sloppy to a job interview or a first date or a big meeting or first time meeting the parents or whatever else matters to you.
i dont believe in love at first sight.
thats just stupid.
but i do believe in LIKE at first sight.
theres a big difference.
people who say that they dont judge people by the way they look are just plain phony.
seriously, when youre walking down the street and you pass by a complete stranger, do you automatically think, " oh my gosh, that guy has such a great personality. " or, " oh man, check out the personality in that one. "
you look at the smile, the eyes, the clothes, the shoes, the ring finger, whatever.
unfortunately, or maybe fortunately, humans do not have the power to decipher a human being in mere minutes no matter how hard the look into the " window to the soul. "
i look and if like what i see i open the book .
i might get to the not so attractive books later on when i find that the ones ive picked up are trash.
but if you really think about it, things are attractive to you for a reason.
if it doesnt attract you at first glance, and still you try to persue it, it just doesnt stay interesting enough.
check this guy out. maybe hes judging me by my cover.
"people who say that they dont judge people by the way they look are just plain phony."
couldn't be any more true ...
