Does love at first sight realistically exist? If yes, how so?
A mother can love her newborn child at first sight.
If you're generally a loving person you love everyone at first sight. I don't mean romantic love. I mean when you care for others unconditionally and put them before yourself.
I'm not sure about true romantic love at first sight.
Within the confines of "gender relations" and relationships for which you have posted this question the answer is: NO!
It's impossible to truly "love someone" you have yet to meet or have gotten to know personally!
It is possible to be physically attracted to a stranger and have an overwhelming desire to want to spend time or get to know them better. However until you get to (know) someone those early feelings are nothing more than a strong "infatuation".
Once a relationship forms and becomes an "in love" romance people will often say they "fell in love at first sight" but in truth they're simply tacking on that time as part of the overall outcome of the relationship. The "infatuation phase" however is not being in love!
Before I answer this question let me draw a line between LOVE and PASSION. Many people have switched love for passion. Love is natural feeling of peace and an in explicable peace you experience when in contact with someone at close distance. But passion is that HOT feeling of heaviness (pleasant or unpleasant) you feel when you see an opposite sex for the first time - especially the opposite sex. That is not LOVE but infatuation or better still call it PASSION.
Your feeling of true LOVE comes at first time. Because everything that brought that LOVE to you is at play and the object of love is never isolated from that LOVE.
How else could true love ever exist, if not at first sight?....I saw her, i loved the way she looked..I heard her speak, i loved the sound of her voice..I saw her walk, i loved the way she walked..I met her, i loved her personality..I kissed her, i loved the way she tasted..We made love, i loved her body..When you see your soul mate/true love for the very first time, & look into their eyes..That's when you know what it feels like to fall in love at first sight, & you will look at the girl or guy totally different than all the one's before..& it will or should become obvious to you that she/he is your one & only soul mate/true love, before you've even met her or him otherwise it's attraction or desperation etc..People have to learn what real love is, before they receive their soul mate gift..& usually a couple of dodgy relationships is sent to teach us/test us, before we are given such an amazing precious gift such as our soul mate just to see how we would treat each other.
The answer is yes to anything when you talk complexity of two humans being together and the mostly eastern belief that us westerners are seemingly accepting more is reincarnation or true soulmates which doesn't have to be a romantic partner. I know for myself it did indeed happen and I am not know as a settling down guy ever. Habitualactually on to the next. Til I saw her and my best friend of my whole life looked at me like a crazy person like I was possessed not knowing what or where I went hearing me say "that's it there she is my wife I'm done looking finally never need anyone else. "
It's been 4 years since that day and engaged just bought us a new house by where her family is. SO INDEED IT IS OR I'D BE SINGLE.

Countless times, I have asked myself-"How many times can a heart mend?" After being loved, falling in and out of love, swearing off love, rekindling love, searching for a new love, looking for and old love... Ladies and gentlemen-we never seem to stop. Everyone will have that first love....
