Is it love or lust at first sight?
There have always been claims of love at first sight, although some people disagree with such claims. Those that disagree with such concept think it is aberrant to fell in love at first sight. It sounds absurd to such people because of how they understand love and what it stands for.
The fact is that love can be understood in different ways depending on the context it is being used. Those that disagree with the idea of love at first sight to mean a strong desire for friendship and everlasting partnership may do so because they think one need to know and understand a partner before one can really and actually want to share a life time with such partner. The fact is that it is very easy to love someone at first sight but such love is usually based on the quality seen at such time which can be beauty/handsome, carriage, how the person talks, the morphological and anatomical structures, exhibition of truth, kindness, honesty among many others. That is, simply put, one has to see something or something makes one to fall in love at first sight.
The act of falling in love at first sight is not that easy especially when such love is intended to last forever because mutual understanding is prerequisite for love to be sustained and for love to grow. It is for that reason that some people wonder if it is actually right to say “love at first sight or lust at first sight?” The question may be necessary because some people do not really know when to draw a line between love and lust.
However, this does not mean that someone can not truly fall in love at first sight but it means that for one to fall in love at first sight, then something made it happen so it is left for one to check and know what actually gave birth to such love at first sight.
