I was always told to never judge a book by its cover, but I guess that wasn’t the case when I was looking for a potential boyfriend.
When I was in my early twenties, I was fresh out of uni and looking to start a life of my own. I was so eager to find someone to settle down with and I thought I had the perfect plan. I would look at the cars that guys drove and if I liked the car, I would assume that he was a great guy and give him a chance.
Boy, was I wrong.
I was at a bar one night and I noticed a guy who was driving a really nice car. A sports car, to be exact. I figured he would be the perfect guy for me and I quickly made my move.
I started a conversation with him and we hit it off really well. We went out a few times and eventually started dating.
But, I soon realized that I had made a huge mistake. I didn’t take the time to get to know this guy. I was so focused on the car he drove that I didn’t think to ask any questions or find out anything about him. I overlooked the fact that he was actually a player and had a lot of different girls coming and going in his life.
I ended up getting hurt in the end. He wasn’t who I thought he was and it was all because I chose a potential boyfriend based on the car he drove. I learned my lesson and I am now more careful when it comes to choosing my partners. I take the time to get to know them and find out their true character before I commit to anything.
I’ll never make the mistake of judging someone by the car they drive and I hope other girls don’t do it either.
It’s important to get to know the person before you jump into things.
