Love at First Sight.

Question:

Do you believe in love at first sight?

I don’t know if I’ve ever thought about this question too deeply before. I want to believe in love at first sight because who wouldn’t want to look at someone for the first time and think “That is the person I’m going to be with for the rest of my life.”

I’ve certainly been attracted to people. I’ve taken one look at certain people and thought how wonderful it would be to date someone that appeasing to look at. But for all I know, that could be lust. I’m sure other people have been in that situation and can attest to it.

I do believe though that you can feel connected to someone. You can meet someone and know they’re special within the first few minutes of talking to them. Maybe that is what love at first sight is all about, feeling like there is something there. Of course, I think being attracted to someone is the first major step into serious dating relationships. That is what makes us want to go over there to begin with, we find them attractive.

Once, I thought I felt a special connection with someone. I thought it was going to turn into something more. But it didn’t.

So, my answer to this question is this:

I don’t know if there’s love at first sight. It’s highly possible and I want to believe it to be true. But more than likely it’s not and I’m afraid to think that’s it right as it’s not very romantic at all. But I’ll give it the possibility of hope because I’m still a bit of a romantic even as I become a love grinch these past few years.

  1. This is such a fascinating question. I think all of us at one time or another have come across something like this.

    I do believe there is lust at first site. Go to any nightclub or college hangout. You will find your answer. But love? I don’t know. I do believe there can be a connection, a spark at the very beginning but I feel love is long term. It requires layers of emotion before that four letter word can be.

    Great topic. Thank you for bringing it up.

    • This is true. You can feel attraction and lust in the beginning but you have to get to know one another and fall in love over time. It’s hard to tell, of course. 🙂
