I love a good love story … that’s probably why I’m addicted to “Married at First Sight” (don’t judge me, ‘k?!).
Although I’ve previously shared with you how I met the hubster, my first impression of him was mostly of his sweet, shy smile.
If I had to sum it up in just ONE word – it would be “sweet”. Sickening I know, but spot on as it turns out – you’d be hard pressed to finder a sweeter man than my Bear.
I asked Miss 20 what her first impression was of her boyfriend of nearly four years. Although they’d seen each other around at high school, her first impression of him when properly introduced, was that he was he was “the funny one – everybody loved him, he was so friendly and made everyone laugh”.
She struggled to make it just one word but I think “welcoming” would be a good choice (you’ll have to let me know if you agree, Miss 20!)
First Impressions in Just One Word
I asked a few others to sum up in just one word, what their first impression was of their spouse or partner – and quickly discovered that Miss 20 wasn’t the only one that had trouble sticking to just one word …
My sister recalled that her husband made her think of “sunshine”, because he was so happy, friendly and easy going.
When I asked my BFF she was like: “Gah. You do realise that’s over 30 years ago?!” – before eventually deciding on “cute”.
I love Jo’s first impression of her husband, which was “home”, as she felt an amazing sense of home when she met her farmer.
Kathy’s first impression of her husband was of “blue eyes”; Tracy was attracted to her man’s “fabulous voice”. I wondered if they’d met at karaoke, and if he was singing or speaking, so just to clarify – it was his sexy speaking voice, like a radio announcer!
Victoria was attracted to a “bad boy” – they’ve now been married for around 25 years so I think it safe to say she tamed him!
And the last word (or three) has to go to Renee, because she cracked me up: “not my type” … though once they started talking, things obviously changed!
Now it’s your turn! If you have a partner – what was your first impression of him; if not, choose another significant person in your life!
