First impressions are important, but they only go so deep. You can’t really know if you’ll like a person just by talking to them one time; you think you can, but in reality, you just can’t. You need to talk to them a second time at least.
The same goes with food, movies, music, etc.
I have only come to realize this fact in a few different scenarios in my life. A few being with food for sure, although that can be explained by the fact that I’m older and have a better taste for foods I didn’t like as a child, including broccoli, green beans, cucumbers… most vegetables actually.
Except celery, I still hate that.
However, a more recent example that isn’t food is a movie. I’m sure most of you have heard of and/or seen Mr. Deeds. I didn’t see this movie until about a year or two ago and to be honest, I wasn’t all that impressed with it. Before you all get your pitchforks out though, let me continue. A few months ago I saw it on TV and since I was too lazy to change the channel (I might have been sick) I watched it again… and I liked it. Since then I think I’ve seen it another 2-3 times, not that that’s a lot of times compared to the number of times I’ve seen other movies, but you get my point.
It’s like the saying, “you can’t judge a book by it’s cover.”
Well, you can’t really judge a book, or movie, by the first time you read/watch it. Well, okay, maybe with books you can because of the 50-page rule. Then again, I’ve also gone back to read a book or two that I gave up on and ended up enjoying it. So the same applies to people, relationships, food, anything really.
You should really give it a second chance.
