The wrong Impression

List 5 or more false impressions you give people when you first meet them. Things they assume of you but is completely wrong.


What a great topic!

When people first meet me, they think that I am:

unapproachable
mean
conceited
wild
a great singer

I don't know how many people have approached me and said "You sing don't you?" I have been told on countless occassions I resemble Chaka Khan, so i guess they figure I can sing like her...boy are they wrong.

In my dating years many guys thought I was unapproachable and conceited. Boy were they way off. I love to talk, to anyone! I am not concieted at all, however I am confident. I love the skin I am in!

Alot of my college buddies thought I was wild. I can be at times. But, not over the top! I was asked to participate in alot of things that would make Madonna and Dennis Rodman, say 5 Hail Mary's. LOL

Also, alot of women think that I am mean. In fact, some of my husband's female co-workers have asked him "Is your wife mean, I don't think she likes me". I am a no nonsense type of person. I speak my mind, but I am generally a kind person. I can get along with anybody. I am a total socialite! I love to talk and enjoy being in the company of people. I mean, I spark up conversations with people I don't know at the grocery store. My husband hates that...He says " he never met a person, who talks more than him, until he met me...." I love intelligent, adult conversation. When you are a stay at home mom, those moments are far and in between. Its always good to go out and have some adult time.

I have oftened wondered where do people get these preconcieved notions about me. If you really get to know me, you would find that I am approachable, I am not mean, I am not conceited, I can be fun, but not wild, and I can't sing to save my life...lol

LOL. Chaka Khan is one hot mama. That's cool you look like her. I think it's funny that people think you are mean though. At least they know not to mess with you.
