Whether you hate or love-watch The Bachelor and The Bachelorette, you know that each new season includes a ceremonial gift of what’s called the “first impression rose.” It’s basically IRL swiping. It’s given to the person who made – you guessed it – the best first impression. Most of these rose recipients are booted well before the season finale.
Now, I’m not saying this is a legit study of human nature, but it’s got me wondering: How right are our first impressions? If you’ve chosen Mr. Wrongs your whole life, maybe you need to hold onto that rose until you actually get to know the person and, ahem, maybe do a thorough background check.
