    I get to know that person before I decide if they are worthy of my friendship. I love to get to know people! :3

    It's silly to judge someone simply by how they

    look but sometimes necessary. Better to judge carefully by your understanding of their heart their motivations😜

    I judge by the content,

    not the cover. If I just looked at the outside, I would miss out on a lot of good things.
