You Are a Heavy Door

You Are a Heavy Door

Our pilot episode! This is slightly rougher than the others for that reason but no less interesting. We talk about our first impressions of each other, then first impressions in general.

We met while working at the Thunder Bay Art Gallery! Hear Ben confess his anxiety over not really knowing how to bridge the gap between “small talk” and more intimate conversations. Are you a “heavy door” like him?

Becky also talks about her first impressions of her current roommates, contrasting what she first thought of them with what she has learned over her first month of living with them, and Ben shares what it’s like forming first impressions of students.

We finish off with a discussion of Becky’s first impressions when using Bumble to find dates.
