Is love at first sight possible?
I have heard many couples say that they fell in love with each other at the very first sight. But how is it possible when nothing is known about each other?
Based on experience, I'd say that a strong attraction can be developed at first sight, but love is a lot more complicated than just being attracted to someone when first meeting them. Certainly, one could spend a lot of time thinking about someone they just met and were attracted to, but I believe for true love feelings to develop, you'd need to spend some time with them or at least around the other person. The couples you are referring to probably had that initial strong attraction that developed into love as they spent more time together.
I don't think you actually need to get to know another person to fall in love. After all, that's what secret admirers are all about. I'm sure people have had the experience of being surprised at finding out someone they really don't know is in love with them. It happens.
Kevin....."Love, at first sight," I am sure, is merely a figure of speech. It normally means that "attraction, interest & other good emotions," were at a high degree, when we first met someone. These feelings may cause us to be drawn to this person, in an effort to get to know them better and a desire to spend more time with him/her. However, I also believe that these initial feelings and reactions have a validity and a power. If we are "instinctively" quite seriously drawn to someone, chances are there are things at work here, that we may not even be aware of.
To be honest with you, if I think back 46 years ago, I can distinctly recall the moment I met the man who became my husband and father of our 2 sons.....when our eyes met and he smiled his outrageously gorgeous smile, I was BONKERS!....GONE.....Hypnotized.........Could I and did I use the phrase, "Love at first sight?" I sure did. But the reality is, it actually took me the better part of an hour to really FALL IN LOVE.........LOL....good question
no, i had many love at first sight when i was a teen. Those puppy love didn't last long, not even a month ! Just fell in love because the other party was cute and handsome.
Yes, yes, yes. It can happen, it does happen all the time, taking the lve plunge amd it stays
I think lots of people call infatuation love at first sight, but there *is* such a thing and it's not the same. I was 41 when I met my husband, and I can't begin to explain it. I felt as if I already understood him and I hadn't yet learned his full name! He seemed like he understood me, too, from the first conversation we had. Nonetheless, we didn't date for several months (I invited him and he said no because he was going through a divorce.) When he felt ready, he asked me if I'd still like to date him and each day when he comes home from work, it's almost like meeting all over again - that same rush of excitement - after more than 3 years.
Im not sure if I believe in love at first sight but I believe one can fall in love from a single conversation, been there, done that
My dear friend, of course love of first sight is absolutely possible! However, we are not talking about "consummate love." This love at first sight is merely "infatuation" - the "puppy love" that many of us have experienced at least once in our lives. This happens mainly during our childhood or teenage period of life. A few older folks occasionally have had this experience also.
Hello Kevin Peter, Love at first sight is actually an attraction so we cannot say it true love. When we meet someone and he or she is beautiful, well dressed and soft spoken - we like him/her. when we meet him/her again and again, the normal attraction turned into infatuation - so there is nothing like love at first sight.. Love is a deep, pure and everlasting feeling and it comes with time.. The better we understand him/her, the better will be our relationship.
I think - fully possible. Why not? But it depends on what do you understand saing "love"
Yes, it is possible because it is not impossible for it to happen. It's called "love at first sight", but it is actually a strong attraction at first sight. Very rarely, can someone actually feel love for another person, at first sight, without knowing their personality. So, I believe you are right about that. The "attraction at first sight" can develop into love when the couple gets to know each other and they are mutually attracted to each other and have the same values.
My theory: You spend your life making observations about people based on their behavior towards you that is manifested in facial expression, gestures, voice, everything. There are nuances of behavior that remind you of every person you've loved in your life, your father, your mother, your best friends. You have compiled this data in your memory bank. When you see someone who falls into the slot where all of those good feelings are stored, you immediately recognize it and BAM! that's it. It's very powerful, it's very real; it's actually not frivilous at all, but based on the workings of our marvelous brain. If the people who raised us were psychological sound, nuturing, emotionally and mentally stable, our attraction is beneficial to us. However, what we have to be sure about is that our upbringing was psychologically healthy. If not, we tend to fall in love with people who can be harmful in our lives. That's why it's important to understand who we are so that we understand if this attraction is good for us.
