I don’t technically believe in first impressions either for this very reason.
People change and it’s easy to fall prey to how nice someone may seem during a first meeting or encounter.
It’s a tad how I feel about marriage.
Marriage isn’t what you think it’s going to be like.
I’ve come to realize that the ‘happy’ and ‘wonderful’ masks have fallen off and it’s a great deal of hard work to keep a marriage afloat.
I don’t think I like it.
