Now that you have interacted on an online matrimonial website or on the phone through a reference a relative gave you, you and your parents have principally agreed to finally meet the prospective bride or groom and her or his family for the first time. First impressions are definitely the last impressions and in this case even more so because of the nature of relationship you intend to build with the opposite party.
When you are meeting someone for the first time, you most likely have very little to go by and need to make quick and sharp judgements about the person to know whether or not he or she is what you are looking for. Here are some factors you can take into consideration to make the correct judgement:
- The eyes and the contact he or she makes with them can tell you a lot about the opposite person. If the person is making appropriate eye contact, it is definitely a good sign that suggests that he or she has some interest in you. If you feel that the eye contact is shifty and he or she is not looking directly at you, the person must be simply avoided.
- While you are at a meeting where you hope to find the perfect matrimonial partner for yourself, judge the person’s body language. Is he or she at ease around you or are they closed minded. If they aren’t opening up to you enough, they don’t smile enough, there is something wrong. You will be able to judge for yourself how composed and confident the person is around you. You could even work at lightening up the situation and making him or her comfortable without actually coming to strong at the person.
- A person with a positive personality is easier to like. But if he or she overdoes it or comes across as someone who is self-centred and always goes on and one talking about themselves, you may want to consider the situation.
As important as it is make the right judgement while undergoing the process of an arranged matrimonial, it is equally important that you make sure you are making the correct impression yourself taking into consideration the exact same factors.
