Continue from the topic on how long we take to form an impression on a total stranger on the 1st meeting.
Like I said I never really give it a though on how people look at me most of the time. And also like I said I always think that I give people the impression that I am a friendly and out going person.
It seems that something is missing in between and what others think of me is something totally out of my expectation.
Lately I have more opportunity to make new friends on several different occasions. First incident was when I meet up with A, he is a friend of my friend L. I meet up with A over a dinner with L and some friends. It was a dinner where they trying to match make A with another friend. After the dinner L sort of ask for A’s opinion on the girls he meet during the dinner which include me.
To my amazement, A said that I am a tough person. The type that will never give up and will never bow to circumstances.
So L probe further, “ will you be dating a gal like her? “
A said:” nope”
L said: “ Why not?”
A said: “ cos she is ‘hard’ and tough, guys will feel intimidated. Only a guy who is stronger then her can dates her. “
My goodness! A is a 34 year old guy and he said I am tough and he will feel intimidated!?!?!?! Something is very wrong here. I mean I am nothing but friendly and nice over the dinner. I am far from what he had described me as.
Well ….. ok I might not be as soft as most of the girls around, but I believe there are many more girls out there who are more tougher then I am.
After hearing this from L, I just brush it off. Maybe A is just a wimp. So what about a guy thinks I am too tough?
Apparently I am wrong again…………….
