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.
