      Because i met a girl in a bus. honestly i thought it was love at first sight, and when i talked to her she told me she liked women.

    Absolutely on the first, yes and no on the second. When I met my husband, first saw him, I felt something different than anyone else, it may not have been love exactly at the time, but it was something beyond the norm and became love.

    No. Long term love is work, communication, compromise, and a lot of other things mixed in. It is impossible to love something you don't know. I believe in lust at first site, which is an important thing for any relationship. After all at some point you will want to have sex with your partner.
    As for "Soul mates", again no! The best of relationships can fail if even one of the two fails to give 100%. I believe in good matches. I love my husband. From the beginning it was lust at first sight. After we had a chance to learn about each other it became love, and we are a good match because we are both willing to do whatever it takes to make our marriage work. None of that happens over night, and you sure can't REALLY love someone simply by seeing them.
    Nice concept but not reality in my opinion.

      Well put! Marriage is a lot of work! I believe we live in a world today where people believe in divorce so they figure if it gets to hard I'll just get a divorce, in my opinion if you had that mind set in the beginning you wasnt ready from the start

    There is no soul mate
    You are your best mate
    There is no love at first sight. Love evolves between two individuals over a period of time when they are in constant touch with each other

      So what if you build a relationship with someone but you've never touched in any kind of way, but you fall in love with someone through emotions, do you think it can work?

    Do I believe in love at first sight? No. And I distrust anyone who actually thinks it's a real thing.

    I believe in soulmates though, that's for sure.

      In this world today nothing surprises me on what others think reality is cause for some love at first sight is there reality!

    Love. It comes in many forms and in many ways. Everyone has their own experience with it. Believing in soul mates and love at first sight is a personal belief we all have to make within ourselves. read more

      I like the facts and opinions you gave. What are your opinions in at aspect of what the Bible says about a woman coming from a mans rib and how it connects with us having soul mates?

    2. ChristinaDawnS profile image77
      ChristinaDawnSposted 2 years agoin reply to this

      Interesting concept actually. Well God did make Eve from Adam's rib just for him specifically. She was to be his partner so he wasn't alone. In essence, taking part of his flesh and soul (possibly) and splitting it in two.

    It depends how one defines "soul-mate".
    If you mean finding someone who shares your same values, wants the same things for the relationship that you do, naturally agrees with you on how to obtain those things, and last but not least there is a mutual depth of love and desire for one another...etc
    Then I believe in a world with over 7 Billion people each of us has potentially too many "soul-mates" to count!
    I don't believe we have a "sole-mate"!
    This notion that there is (only one person out of the 7 Billion people) on the planet who will "get us" and vice versa is foolish.
    No, I don't believe in love at first sight.
    You can't love truly love anyone (without knowing them)!
    That takes time! Prior to that there is lust and the "projection" of our beliefs of who we "think" they are. If over time we come to find out they are in fact (all we imagined them to be) then it's common to express the idea that we loved them the moment we met them.
    However in reality everyone has also had a crush on someone who did not live up to the expectations we had of them!
    Love at first sight is nothing more than us getting to know someone who turned out to be what we "imagined" them to be like. It was more lust and hope at first sight.
