    If a person has good morals, passionate and friendly. This is what i mostly look out from the people i interact with every day on my way to work, to school and to home.

    I don't particularly expect anything while meeting a person for the first time. But I guess, what I look out for is how well they speak and their friendly attitude. It would be so nice to have someone to keep you engaged in a conversation even if it's just your first time meeting each other.

    What I look out for in a person that I met for the first time is our ability to be comfortable with each other. I would like to know if I'll get comfortable with the person or are there points that I need to notice for our get-to-know or relationship be comfortable with each other, with no awkwardness, and judgment, just pure getting to know each other.

    Whether they establish sane eye contact as they speak - or shifty eyes or bizarre eye contact. A person says more with their eyes than what they say - which most the time can mean countless things. A first date, is very DANGEROUS - especially if they request you go to a place,where the lighting is bad - and therefore eye contact is difficult. BEWARE of such a individual - they may be trying to hide from you who they really are.

    When I first meet a person I make eye contact, and listen. Giving someone the space to talk is courteous, and it allows me to learn about them. Then I wait to see if they will, in turn, do the same. If they don’t, I surmise that they may be on the narcissistic side of the spectrum. That’s not someone I need to share my information with, because I won’t want them in my inner circle.

    That first meeting is when you instantly decide on whether you like this person or not. I always watch how they make eye contact, how they stand, where they put their arms and what they are doing with their hands. I listen to their speech and how they put sentences together. But most of all, I go on how I feel in their presence. We are all surrounded by an aura, which is a sense on the spiritual realm. A person's aura tells me all I need to know about them. I have had instants where people I have met have made my hair stand up on my arms, and I know that I can never be friends with that person.

    The ability to be a decent communicator is going to be my first flag finder. I take into account the personality of a person, to kind of determine what the flow of our first interactions will "most likely be". Yet eye contact is a big winner for me though. It let's you know a lot about a person's self esteem to a certain extent. I also know that you can't always judge a person by it's cover.

    The way they speak. I easily get drawn to people who can speak confidently and I unconsciously stare at the way their lips move.

    The ability to take decisions without bias and selflessness. I see these as important they are the values that I expect to see in a friend, partner or colleague.

    When I meet someone for the first time I don't really expect anything. It all depends with how they will treat me. If they are warm and respectful then I'll give them my respect.

    I believe it is human nature for an individual to judge a person by their appearance.

    However, that is almost always only an initial assessment. There are still many factors to look out for when we meet someone for the first time. I believe it is important to look out for other internal components of a person, such as personality, attitude, and so much more. It is also beneficial to know their opinions toward important topics and issues, making sure that you can have a good discourse with each other. No one likes a person who strongly defends an opinion to the point of aggression and insults.

    I look out for a great conversationalist. A good listener and someone who is consciously aware of what's happening.

    I personally look at the personality of the person first and then try to feel his aura or the vibe that he is sending. And after thst i decided if i should engage in a conversation with tbat person or not. If i find a good connection with that persor, then you never know a stranger could become the most important person of your life.

    It is simple. No? I am probably what is considered an introvert. I wait to be talked and try best to hold conversation. So what I look for is whether or not they are actually speaking to me.

    Here are six ways we judge people when we first meet them and some tips to make a good first impression:
    • Appearance. Of course, the first thing that we notice about someone is how they look. ...
    • Smile. ...
    • Handshake. ...
    • Body Language. ...
    • Timeliness. ...
    • Mannerisms.
