How to do-over a first impression
I have a crush on a guy who doesn’t know me. I made eye contact and smiled at him at at a friends birthday party, and now he probably thinks I’m a freak.
Dear Bad First Impression,
Everyone feels self-conscious around a crush. For all you know, he’s kicking himself for not smiling back. There’s plenty of time to make a great second impression. When you see him next, instead of smiling, talk to him. Ask if the water is cold, or say you need a fourth person for volleyball or a card game. Anything! If he’s nice, great. If not, at least you won’t squander any more time on a jerk.
