In the latest celebrity news, Lenny Kravitz’s new memoir Let Love Rule gave fans a look into some of the hardship he has faced in the past, including making a bad first impression when meeting his celebrity ex Lisa Bonet. According to, Kravitz outlines how when first meeting Bonet, he “kind of blew it” by complimenting her hair. Kravitz explained that he was nervous, and while he did like her hair, he knew he should’ve said something better. Kravitz and Bonet later went on to get married and have a daughter before announcing their celebrity break-up in 1993.

In celebrity break-up news, not all love stories have a perfect beginning, middle, and end. What do you do if you make a bad impression on your crush the first time you meet them?

Cupid’s Advice:

Sometimes when we get nervous or are trying to impress someone we end up saying the wrong thing. While this may not lead to the best first impression, it doesn’t mean that we completely blew our shot. If you are looking for some ways to make up for a bad first impression, Cupid has some advice for you:

1. Acknowledge and apologize: Oftentimes the easiest way to move past an awkward encounter is to simply acknowledge it happened and apologize for it. This will ensure your crush that you also thought the first impression wasn’t the best so they are not left wondering if that’s how you normally act. Once the air is cleared, focus on impressing them next time!

2. Don’t dwell on it: While the fact that you made a bad first impression on your crush may still be on the forefront of your mind, it is important not to dwell on this encounter. If you spend too much time focusing on what you did wrong, it can make it more difficult to show your crush your real personality moving forward. Once you’ve acknowledged it, just let it go!

3. Nail the second impression: First impressions are not last impressions. Once the air is cleared from an awkward first encounter and you have stopped dwelling on what you originally said, take every opportunity moving forward to make a better impression. Over time, your crush will forget how bad your first impression may have been and only think of the ways you have impressed them since.
