i take a first impression about them. i notice if he is good, i will deep and get in contact with him continually. or not i will stay a normal relationship with them.
I love to create a close relationship with people who are sincere and honest

When I meet people for the first time, I usually introduce myself. Then, I ask them their name and start to talk about hobbies and finally other topics.
