    1 and 2 are incorrect, as you should use 'was' not 'is' (matching the past tense of 'saw')
    2 'indifference' should be 'indifferent'.
    With correct grammar, all 3 are possible, and each mean slightly different things, in increasing order of 'coldness'.
    Also - none of them explicitly say that you now think that first impression was incorrect.

    The first time I saw her, I thought she was not as I thought to be her.
