Five things you shouldn’t be judgmental about when meeting new people


1. Their clothes

Whether they are wearing the latest fashion, or look like they’re homeless, who are you to judge? That’s the way they express themselves, or they probably had a bad day. As far as you know, it might be laundry day.

2. Their past

Whatever happened, happened. Once a mistake is made, you just simply put it behind you (or in the back of the closet), move on and never go back there. It’s nobody’s damn business to dig through your closet, so don’t do the same to them.

3. Their accent

I’m saying this, because I have an accent, as much as I’m trying to get rid of it. And I feel nervous when talking to people whose native language is English, which only makes things worse. And I really appreciate it when people don’t look at me like I’m Borat and I’m here to tell you all about the Glorious Nation of Kazakhstan.

4. Their sexuality

Or how they choose to express it. It’s one thing to ask them whether they are single or taken over coffee, and quite another to ask if they like it in the butt or have gay experience. That’s a line you probably want to cross over dinner.

5. Their friends

There was a saying that if you want to know a person, you should take a good look at his friends, which I think is pure shit. I have dumb friends, smart friends, funny friends, awkward friends, and I’m none of the above.

Bottom line, whether it’s based on religious views, skin colour, education or the lack of it, weight, music taste, money, please, don’t judge if you don’t want to be judged yourself. And if, by any chance, you do, go to a reality show and spare us your opinion. Thank you!

  1. This seems like such simple things not to do, but it sucks because no matter what, people still do judge others based on their appearance and it’s not really not fair! That Shrek gif is awesome lol
