Do You Actually Believe in Love At First Sight

Updated on February 27, 2013

While getting older, the term "love at first sight" has came up a lot. Whether its you and a friend, or even a class discussion, this question is always asked at some point. And my answer is yes, I do. for years, even after I started getting serious with my boyfriend, I couldn't answer this question. For most people, the first thing we think is "No, you have to actually get to know the person first to love them." I know that's what I thought about. Take a second to think of the person you love. The person you want to be with for the rest of your life. Now, ask yourself what was the first thing that came to mind when you saw a picture of that person on Facebook or saw them pass you in the hallway, or even standing in front of you in line at the grocery store. I'll tell you mine: The first time I saw my boyfriend was pictures on Facebook. I was having a rough time figuring out what was going on in my love life, and I just wanted someone to love me for me, and someone to call mine. I saw this kid. A year older then me, kind of on the nerdy side, but adorable looking. I knew right then and there I would love him and call him mine one day. 3 months had gone by, I had never spoke to him or anything. One day, a mutual friend made a status on Facebook, and everyone was commenting on it. Just joking around, talking to one another. Eddie(my boyfriend, not at the time though) and I were both commenting.One thing led to another and we began being friends. I couldn't believe what was happening! I randomly saw this kid on Facebook 3 months ago, we had no idea who each other was, and I'm actually talking to him?! A few weeks go by, and we sort of just lost touch, for me, it was one of those "well it was fun while it lasted" moments. But, sure enough, a few months later we started texting again; serious this time. We "talked" for a good 5 months before we started dating. But while we're dating, we'll bring this up every so-often. From the moment I saw that picture on Facebook, I knew he was the one. Some nerdy kid that was no where near the guys I considered my type. But I am so thankful I had that light-bulb moment. take a moment to think if this ever happened to you.

One of the biggest mistakes people make when thinking of their answer is mistaking the love feeling with the in love feeling. They are two completely different things, and, can change your answer completely. I'm not saying you should agree. Before, I kinda thought this was a pointless question. But, as I really thought about it, it's a really important question, especially if you're confused, asking yourself if you really do love that person.

      Sorry for replying so late. My mother is from the Philippines and my father from Germany. They had been penpals for about one or two years. They both fell immediately in love with each other when they saw each other's photo. My father wanted to come to the Philippines but he had no money at that time. It may sound like a fairy but he won the lottery and went straight to my mother's home. Their love got more and more stronger so that I was made in the Philippines. They decided to move to Germany to live there and got married. I was born here in Germany. That's my little story.

      Thank you! I'm glad that worked out for you! And if you don't mind me asking, where were your parents from? That is amazing.

      What a cute story! You belong to the generation that could fall in love with someone that is on Facebook. I don't know how old you are but when I was at your age I couldn't imagine to fell in love with someone I saw on the Internet. My parents got to know each other by penpalship and it was definitely love at first sight. The same with me and my husband but we met each other at the university. So I do believe in love at first sight.
