"Love at first sight" may be some people's experience—but it's certainly not everyone's. More often it's more like "awkwardness at first sight" or "extreme humiliating drunkenness at first sight," or even "hatred at first sight." Many happy relationships have messy, rocky, or awkward beginnings. So if you're the type of person who tends to make terrible first impressions, don't give up hope!
Someone on Reddit asked people who had "super shitty first encounters with their significant others" to share how they ended up together despite a rocky start.
1.) From Rockytana:
My now sister in law wanted to set me up with her sister, we were set to meet for drinks, a few people not to much pressure. Well, she failed to mention the “set up” part to my now wife.
She shows up, she was doing a cleanse at the time, she wasn’t drinking and only eating clean, she didn’t really want to be there, she brought a friend with her and barely spoke to me.
