If it’s too good to be true, it probably is. Trust your gut, not smiles, charm, smooth talk, or unsolicited promises.
Beyond the Tweet:
Serial killer Ted Bundy was described as “the boy next door.” Extremely charismatic, confident, brilliant, successful, and handsome, he killed at least 20 people. When someone comes off as charming – no matter how good they make you feel – it is important to remember these comparable meanings of charming:
- entrancing (putting one in a trance)
- to be carried away with (under someone else’s sway)
- being under a spell (coming under someone else’s power)
Face it. Grandma was right — All that glitters is not gold.
