    No. I believe in lust at first sight. Love is something that requires knowing someone or something. It is impossible to really love someone you don't know. The only thing you can love about someone on first meet is their looks.

    I'd say you can have love at 2nd and 3rd sight. I mean sometimes I do a double take.

    I really think people tend to confuse 'love' with 'lust', I really don't believe someone can have such a deep and intricate feeling at first sight. You can definitely be attracted to someone at first sight and it can grow quickly into love but feeling love from just a glance, no I don't think it's possible.

    Since,I've never had love at first sight, I don't believe in it.I think that at first sight you're just attracted but in a crazy manner.That  makes you think that you have fallen for him/her at first sight.I have never experienced it.

    I always believe that love in the sense of total self-giving to another entails commitment that could not be built simply by first meeting.  There are different ways of looking at the word love in Greek: eros - love that could lead to marriage (one receives); philia - love in fellowship/friendship (One gives and takes); agape - selfless love (one gives totally).  If I am to qualify love at first sight, I would put it in the first type of love or even the second but not the third.  Selfless love has to be earned and nourished no matter what and that takes time and commitment to happen.

    I've never experienced it, but I think it's possible; especially if you have prayed for a mate and God has revealed to you specific attributes about that person.

    Depending on the definition of love.

    My own definition of love is about seeing, feeling and doing. This means that the person I am in love at first sight will be what I see that I like. What I feel about her is what I like and lastly, what she does with her action is what I like.

    Yes, I do believe in love at first sight. It had happened to me and my current wife. We are still happily married for many years ...

    Yes. It happened to me and my wife in January, 1980. Everyone else in the room knew. (We were young and naive.) On second sight, we both knew. Three weeks later, I proposed, and she said yes. (For the skeptics who left other answers, that's when we made the full commitment we've been trying to live up to ever since.) Five years later, we got married. (Her parents didn't like me.) Twenty years later, her Mom came around. Now, we're past our 25th anniversary. It hasn't always been easy - far from it - but it's been love at every sight!

    May it happen to you!

    I definitely believe in love at first sight, but I believe that "first sight" means instant  recognition of the qualities that you've been subconsciously evaluating and analyzing all your life as comfortable to you. You've internalized patterns of behavior from your first "love teachers" (your parents, etc)  that you recognize in this new person - how that person speaks, how he carries himself, how he strings a sentence together, how he moves his eyes - very subtle clues that inform your judgment of him and let you know he matches your values and something even deeper than that.  The question is whether your first love teachers had flaws that feel familiar and comfortable, but perhaps are not emotionally heathly for you.  But when it's good, it's really good, and it can last a long, long time.
