    Nope.  I believe there is lust at first sight, but not love.  Love takes time to grow.

    Agree with Jeannie, there is so such thing as love at first sight.  Many of the relationships I have been in we didn't even LIKE each other when we first met.  But then we grew to know each other better as friends and that would turn into more and eventually love will grow out of that. But you cannot fall in love with a person simply by the way they look.

    I used to, but not anymore.  Love is hard work.  You can't just see somebody for the first time and love them.  People mistake lust and physical attraction for love a lot.

    No, I don't.  Like several others have said, I think that you can have lust at first sight.  Maybe after that,  you get lucky and love comes too, but I don't think that love can be instant.  Love is based on more than just a physical attraction.

    no I believe its purely lust , love comes from a deep emotional connection , not a physical one, well not entirely physical anyway

    Love at first sight is something very deep for many to understand is it really love or is it lust and if you have to work to hard for it to last is it worth it.  Me personally I believe in love at first sight being possible but I feel it is possible multiple times once the love is gone there is a chance it could happen again there are many people on this planet. No one should have to fight to be with one person especially when there is someone better for you anyway. But I feel this is true also any man or any woman can get with who ever they want if you know how to do it. No one is out of anyones league this is very true indeed.

    I don't think there is love at first sight. I think there is attraction at first sight, then the love follows. To be sure, we learn to love someone because of how we feel for them and how they make us feel. We cannot fall in love with a total stranger.

    I'm not sure how you'd define it, but when my husband and I met I thought it was love at first sight. We caught eyes at a club we both went to, and for some reason, couldn't stop looking at each other, as if we knew each other from somewhere, I kept trying to place him in my memory, but couldn't. So without saying a word to each other we slowly started dancing together, and he kissed me. We've been together since.
    We've both said at one point or another that we felt in love from the first date when we stayed up all night talking, not wanting the conversation to end.

    Absolutely! It's happened several times in my life! Especially during summertime, downtown...when it's really seems there are more beautiful people floating about!

    Seriously though, I am with my wife of 4 years, been together 6...and from the first day in my training class at work, she caught my eye. Though she didn't realize it yet, she would eventually be mine forEVER!!!   tongue

    I definitely do.  My husband and I met via the internet and we knew we were in love before we ever touched.  We are both poets though, so it is somewhat as if we manifested one another with the ink of our Divine Poetics.

    Definitely, yes.  I met my husband on line.  By the time we met in person, I already loved him.  Meeting him just confirmed what I felt for him.  I would have married him the night I met him.  That was almost six years ago.

    That, i would say, depands on how specific you are about the question " Do you believe in love at first sight ? ".

    - If you ask, is "Can there be an extrem deep emotion, the very second you see a person that you find attractive by look (because you dont know the soul), than absolutely yes.
    Of course your brain is reacting on a person that fits into your profile of what is beautiful, and can give you an amazing push of sympathy (or call it love if you want).

    But this can be splited up again in many different ways.
    We can feel sympathy (or love..) for someone, going just by the look.
    We can feel sympathy for just someones soul.
    But there are even way more options to feel that, than just those i mentioned.

    In my opinion i would realy just go that far and say " It is LOVE " if both of these conditions are there.
    So if i fall for the soul AND the look (and of course other components) of this person, than yes it is love.

    But still, it is not Love at first sight.
    Why ?

    Simply , because as even others mentioned before me, it just takes time.
    I cant fall for someones soul after one single communication based on " Hy, how are you ? ".

    So that just leads me to the answer NO, there is no love at first sight ( in my  opinion).

    I believe that there really is not love at first sight. It's not like you automatically know that persons true feelings or heart. You could look at someone and be really attracted, but then find out they are a horrible person that you do not get along with. I think there is a such thing as lust as first sight and interest at first sight. But love at first sight is so not true. Never fall for someone you just look at once, you need to get to know that person deep down and find out if you really have the same interest and standards and feelings.

    yes. But your emotional filters must be untarnished in oder to receive and know. Some are lucky to find it and stay together. I think you can have many lovse at first sight. I think only doves mate for life.

    Maybe attraction at first sight because human looks are really attractive. I often find myself attracted with a lot of good looking girls around. Some of them I get to know personally after the first meeting, and guess what, I often lost the attraction after knowing the person a little deeper. So for me, the initial sparks I felt are not love after all.

    Yes i do believe in love at first sight. I think the fact might be the person attracts you more then his / her nature and state of mind. At that moment the only thing is his / her personality in front of you.

    Love falls into physical attraction and that of spritual ones, the latter lives longer. if you mean physical love, then the answer to your question is " YES".

    It happens to some people. It happened to me.. kinda.

    I actually think it is more likely that it happens to a man.

    Because men are far more visual when it comes to liking a girl.

    hmmm.. i actually surprised myself with what I just wrote, but I think it is true.

    I believe love at first sight can and does exist, and as for mistaking it for lust, I'm confident I know the difference between the two.

    Love can happen in little more than the time span of a hello and nice to meet you, and the attraction may have nothing at all to do with appearance.

    Love at first sight is based on physical attraction. Many people can have the experience of that when seeing someone that they are very attractive to, but a relationship based on that is not reality. Relationships take alot of work, it doesn't just all flow smoothly and everything fall into place...

    Um, not really because I don't really think that it's "love" at first sight. Most commonly it's just an attraction and crush, as time passed by...your emotions tend to be develop and that's the time when it becomes love.

    I most definitely believe in love at first sight. I clearly remember the day my husband walked up my driveway and up to my door for our first date. He had a look of confidence in him and he immediately made my heart melt. We have now been married a little over two years. It does exist!

    ateutonposted 12 years ago

    Yes, but I have not experienced that since I was about 14 years old, and that attraction never turned into relationship. It felt like two star-crossed lovers that never got together. Of course, I feel "in-love" when I look at my husband. I am a hopeless romantic and will always believe in love at first sight.
