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. " 
NO.
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. 


can i help you?
check this guy out. maybe hes judging me by my cover.
