First impressions are everything!
While you shouldn’t judge a book by its cover, many people make snap judgments based on what they immediately see and aren’t willing to stick around to learn much more.
Making good first impressions doesn’t just apply to how you look the first time you meet someone.
You also need to make a good first impression when a new person you’re dating comes to your home!
Clean It Up!
It’s really important that you clean your home and make it nice and neat before you have a new dating companion come over.
If you have clothes thrown everywhere and dirty dishes piled up in the sink, your date might feel like it isn’t a place where they’d want to spend much of their time, if any.
It’s okay if you tend to have the “organized mess” or just the messy mess altogether, but you definitely want your date to feel comfortable in your home.
Are You Normally A Messy Person?
People that tend to be messy sometimes think, “Hey, I’m a messy person and anyone I date needs to be able to accept that!”
Although this is true to an extent, letting a new person see you live in a pigsty may be very off-putting for them.
When someone gets to know you better and develops feelings for you they can more easily overlook some messy habits.
But, if you expose someone to your unclean home too soon, it could be more difficult to be overlooked.
So, take the time to clean up your home before your date comes over!

Till Next Time,
You only get one chance at making a good first impression. Us simple humans just can’t help it – whatever our perception of someone is within the first 14 seconds, it is almost impossible to change it. Speed-dating might have some value after all…
Very true!! A bad first impression is hard to overcome! Thanks for commenting!!
