Do You Believe in Love at First Sight?

Love and attraction are two different things. I do believe in attraction at first sight. You can definitely see someone from across the room, like the way they look and want to meet them. After you meet, you could start dating which could eventually lead to falling in love, but I feel as if you can't truly love someone unless you know him or her.

So I'm curious. Do you believe in love at first sight? Do you think it's possible to see Mr. or Mrs. Right from afar and just know instantly that they're "the one"?

No, I don't. Love takes time, not just a mere glance, but it is possible to immediately LIKE someone, but like and love are seperated by a line as wide as Texas.

Absolutely not. Love is based in a foundation of trust.

I have mixed feelings about this! I've always been kind of cynical when it comes to "love at first sight"...but my current boyfriend and I met on a blind date! We had talked on the phone for about a week before meeting. It was a very strange feeling...a little awkward at times, but something just "clicked." I didn't want our first date to end! And every time I look at him I get that same feeling all over again...butterflies.

Not love, but certainly a spark that could eventually lead to love (or not).

I used to believe in love at first sight but I found "the one", or at least the one I think/hope is "the one", without it so... who knows? I guess it just works for some and not for others.

I believe that anything is possible. I agree that LUST at first sight is more confused with love at first sight. I think that love at first sight is only in the movies but I have heard it has happened. In the real world, to really be in love and feel loved it takes time (as does everything).

I believe that started loving my boyfriend the second I laid eyes on him, but I'm not sure if it was "love at first sight." There was just this crazy connection that, over the past two years, has developed into love. Some people just have the instant effect on you, but love, the real kind, takes time.

YES! YES! YES! Have you ever met someone and felt like you've know them your whole life? That is how it was with my current boyfriend - the moment we met i could have sworn we were meant for eachother. We stayed up all night talking and couldent believe the connection we had. Something in my heart just knew when i looked into his eyes. It sounds so corny but it is true. We have been together for 3 years now and it just keeps getting better. I never believed in fate until i met him. Know i know ... :)

No, I don't. Unless it applies to shoes. I'm not sure what the phrase "at first sight" means, though. It seems like it means different things to different people. Someone up there said "my first impression", which I can understand more than just "the first glimpse I caught of him/her". It took me a couple of hours to realize that my boyfriend was the most amazing person I'd ever met, but that realization didn't happen the very first second I saw him.

I believe it cuz I've experienced it! The first time I saw my current bf I was TOTALLY in LOVE with him. This was back in the day when he had a gf though, and I didn't think I would EVER have a chance with him cuz he was just sooooo hott and I was completely the opposite of the types of girls I saw him dating...so I thought that kinda sucked for me, but I still was in love with him (he knew I liked him but not that I LOVED him) and we stayed friends. A couple years later after we had been in touch off and on, we decided to go out and see a movie and catch up....he had broken up with his gf a couple months prior and had been hanging out with his boys n'stuff...so it was really random that he called me up to hang out...but I went and when I saw him again, all those feelings of love were STILL THERE..I knew he was THE ONE since those feelings never went away even when I didn't see him for a couple years, and when we started hanging out again they just grew stronger! =D and we're still together and going strong now^^ 3 years later ahhh, TRUE love at first sight is a great feeling.

Lust at first sight. Love takes more time.

I believe in immediate attraction and maybe in an immediate feeling that one COULD fall in love with another person. But I don't think one can see someone from across the room and be in love. You don't see someone across the room and immediately know that you love someone in a best friend-way. Why should you know you're in love in the romantic way? Real love, of any kind, takes time to develop. It doesn't just fall out of the sky and hit you on the head. To be completely fair, I've experienced something similar to "love at first sight". I looked across the room, saw my boyfriend and went "I'd date that". However, it was not a case of our eyes meeting across the room so much as me noticing his bum across the room.

Congratulations to all those who said they experienced love at first site. I thought love entailed a deep understanding and caring for a person. How amazing that you were able to just know you found that in a mere moment.

Of course I believe! The first time I laid eyes on my bf, a little voice in my head said, "That's who you're gonna marry." At that point, I was in a relationship, in fact, my current bf was standing next to me, so imagine that! And, he was just getting out of a long term relationship. Five motnhs later, we were together, and have been ever since.
