AM I SEEING DOUBLE?

Second Glance vs First Sight

This just ain't right you know. Why is it that when you see someone for the first time you are in awe of them and attracted to them by one thing or the other. Perhaps they way they are dressed, the way they carry themselves and all that hype. BUUUUUUUTTT when you meet them the secon time all your hopes and initial impression are just dashed. What's up with that? I just thought about this today. No particular reason or person in question, just randomized thoughts. Yes my mind is going nuts and all sorts of craziness is being unruffled in my head. But don't you find this to be something that's quite common. I know there are people who haev also taken a second glance with me, considering I always try to dumb down my 'hotness' so that i don't distract people :). Trust my transfromation is out of this world, especially when I add my villager's baff, wrapper tied around my body and over my neck, in to the mix. Anyways, just thought I'ld ask if I am the only one who experiences this and wonders why the hell was I attracted or interested in that perosn in the first place. Ok back to work peeps...Laters

its not only u *definitely not* but i think the reason for that is that when u see someone 4 the first time, u take time to appreciate w/e they have on, look like or a certain uniqueness about them. These get u attracted, however on seeing the person the second time, u are looking for something more personal, u know all those legibility qualities.....the kind of person u prefer. i think that is the main reason for second thoughts about someone u earlier admired.

Adau, you are alone oh. The same thing is happening to me right now. I met this guy I thought was attractive, nice, great dresser etc. How about the second time we met, I couldn't remember what I saw in him the first time.

This just happened to me yesterday. I think it was the state of mind I was in. I was floating on air when I met this person so I was in this wonderful mood. By the second time, I was back on solid earth. I looked at him like, who are you and wtf was I thinking...???

Sometimes I think it is the excitement of seeing someone new.

Lol@anon... I had nobody in particular in mind oh abeg before you chase away all my toasters. Just that I have noticed how my excitement fizzles at secon or third meeting of people that I just began to wonder what I was so hyped about in the first place. It has even happened with chicks too not just blokes.
