    Love at first sight?

    Do you believe that's possible?  Or do you believe love is something developed over time?  I side with the latter.  You?

    Oh yes there is such a scientific reaction we humans experience called love at first sight.  I've written a hub about it called the truth about love at first sight, drop by and read it sometime its a fascinating subject.  smile Katie

    I would say a kind of love at first sight but, in my personal experience, the love that grows over time is a far deeper love and I'm very happy to have grown to be in love with someone over the past 2 years smile

    I agree with you, love grows, anything that grows can also wither.

    My hubby takes the other stand, he insists that he " just knew".

    In the end, I guess we all have a place,. smile

    In my opinion, first impression lasts longer in our mind..and time gives more 'space' to know each other better..

    Love developed over time. I don't believe on love at first sight theirs no such thing. that's only a strong feeling of attraction but no love at first sight.

    Love at first time is incredulous and untrue, though the first impression will allow or disallow the subsequent interaction through which love will grow..

    I believe that it's neither, but both at the same time. Love is created by your own mind, and can come as fast or as slow as your mind will let it.

    I have experienced a very deep atraction at first sight which over a few years has developed into far more ( on my part anyway ) we do share a very special relationship

    Personally I haven't experienced the feeling although I don't close my mind and my heart that it may or may not happen.

    Right now though, I believe that it's not possible. Like at first sight, maybe, but not love. My logic is you can never really truly love someone right away if you don't know him/her well enough to know what makes him/her cry,laugh,tick..etc. .

    just a thought.

    I don't believe in love at first sight because you have to know some body to love them, but there is such a thing as lust at first sight.

    Love is always present in us but it is somethings that takes time to grow and mature. When you first meet there is a very strong attraction that set the stage for the love within to blossom and grow.

    Anything is possible.
    How can you put put logic on or rationalise love!!! In reality it just does not vibe that way. I think you'll lead a very limited life if you one-track 'possibilities'.
    Ok, you can say 'I can't love someone unless I know them..' but as human beings we meet people everyday who we 'instantly' gel with (or not!).. Explain that. Attraction has absolutely NO logic.
    It just is.

    I think we are attracted at first sight. I think we can desire and experince lust at first sight. Love must certainly run deeper than the consequence of a look. 42 years after meeting my wife, I understand the difference between our first meet and today. I wanted to be her from the first day. I know now that that I need not see her to know I love her. She has disappeared into me, into thought and into my senses, like rain that falls into a lake. I can not, any longer, seperate her from me. I don't believe that happens in a day. It happens in a life and I can not determine the point at which it happened, but, it was not at first sight.

    Your perception is your reality. So its whatever you believe,

    You can have attraction at first men, based upon their infatuation with looks can have love on first sight. can end up being hate on first sight after a few years.

    You can have "love" on first sight, but that doesn't mean he or she is the person you should end up with.

    I think you do have LOVE at first sight of the birth of your children.  If you don't feel love at the first sight of your firstborn child, that would be strange...unless there is something very powerful that might override it.

    There is an attraction at first sight.  There is a lust at first sight.  There is no love at first sight in my opinion.

    I really do agree with you. 

    Love takes a while to develop, and it is work.  The attraction is what will help the relationship along.  Again, it needs work.

    The lust will destroy everything.  LOL.
