    Smile if you say that he may have bias thinking about me

    Hello~ Can you help me say this naturally please?
    If my sentences are not natural, you can simply ignore them and give me your own sentence please~ (it would be more helpful to me)

    A: Hey, one of my friends will come home. Would you please not tell him about me?
    Such as Iím so narrow minded or have too strict personality?
    We have known each other just for a couple of days,
    ⓐif you say that he may have bias thinking about me before he gets to know true me.
    ⓑif you say so he may have fixed idea about me before he gets to know true me.

    I know you have hard feeling on me and you keep thinking I have bad personality, but please just keep that in you mind this time.

    Re: if you say that he may have bias thinking about me

    A: Hey, one of my friends is coming over. Would you mind not telling him what you always tell me?

    There's a difference between a friend is coming home and coming over. I think that needs to be defined.

    Coming home could be that that he has been far away, and is arriving at the airport........... then he is coming home to where he used to live. The visit could be very important, something that does not occurr very often.

    If he is coming over he lives closeby, and the visit is not terribly important. He could come over basically any time.

    For example, my daugher lives in California...........when she comes, she is "coming home"
    My sons live close to me, when they come here, they are "coming over".
