I believe you can be attracted to someone at first sight, and end up in love, and in a relationship, but I don't believe you can truly LOVE at first sight. To me Love goes so far past the surface that it would be impossible before you know who the other person is.

Real love takes a long time to develop and hard work. So no.

love is too strong.. I think in passion, attraction, sympathy.. but love takes time to grow up..

I didn't belived it; until I met my boyfriend. I felt a big "BANG!" in my heart as soon as I saw him. That's when I understood what a "coup de foudre" means. We spoke together the whole night. It was in a party at my home (he had been invited by a friend), there was lot of people, but it could easily have been only the two of us.

At the end of the night, he gave me is email, but I was so excited that... I lost it. It's like he had never existed, none of my friend could help me find it back, not even the one who brought it to my house. Took me more than a year to see him again!

But it was all worth it; I'm happy to say that we've been together for more than two years now :)

I don't think there's such a thing as love at first sight. Love has to grow, and you can't fall in love with someone right away.

I think the people who say they fell in love with someone the first time they met them are romanticizing their memories.

There is not such thing as "Love" at first sight. You only truly love someone when you know what kind of person they are... and that doesn't happen at first sight...

However, LUST at first sight does exist :)

Of course I do, it's how I met my husband! ... 15 years ago. :D

Oh hell, there is. I've seen some examples of people who were actually able to have a strong crush on a person they just got to know. Of course, *mutual* love at first sight is even more rare and complicated... Maintaining a relationship is more difficult than adoring someone you can't reach, and only time can prove it to be an actual love.

I believe in attraction at first sight, lol.

But I mean, sure, you can get the idea when you first meet someone that you really like them and maybe might be able to love them in the future... But love takes time.

Physical Attraction, I believe in.
Lust at first sight, I believe in.
Love at first sight? Not a chance.
Studies have shown that relationships that start as friends last longer.
(I actually stumbled across that yesterday *snickers* So the poll is perfect timing)
But you can't truly love somebody unless you know them. I've never seen somebody look at a movie poster for a movie they've never seen and say "I love that movie"
I've heard "That looks great" And "I think I'll love that movie" but never "That's my favorite movie ever" :P It's the same for people. If you don't know um, you can't love um.

Furthermore, I also find it offensive when someone claims to love someone else based on looks alone.
I can't imagine loving someone without knowing them well, and making sure their needs are compatible with mine, and that both of us can accept each other's flaws.
Kansheera Featured By Owner Dec 16, 2009
I absolutely don't.
With both my boyfriends, and with the two other guys I was in love with when I was a kid, it took around 4 months to get to know them and fall in love.

I have had crushes "on first sight", but when I started learning about sexuality, I realised that those "crushes" were just me wanting to boink a guy.

So no, I cringe when people mistake horniness for love.

Lust at first sight, being drawn in by their looks. But not love.

I believe in "infatuation at first sight". Love takes patience understanding, and above all, time. Whatever you're feeling when you first see someone can be attributed to your genitals.
Xirane Featured By Owner Dec 16, 2009
I'm not exactly sure if I believe in love at first sight... Because in all truth I experienced something that might be considered love at first sight. A friend of mine set me up with my boyfriend (who has now been my boyfriend for over two years and things are going very well) and we both knew we wanted to be with each other from the first time we met. However, it's not that we didn't know each other before hand. We spent two months talking on the phone getting to know each other before we actually met. So it's not quite the same thing I guess. (and no I'm not some stupid teenager. I'm not in high school, and I'm also not a gushy romantic)

Who knows maybe it does exist? I know a few people who did just sort of see each other and then ended up getting together right away and worked out. Actually it happened to two people in my family. So really, who knows. It may just be this fluke that happens everyone once in while *shrugs*
SukainaNajaf Featured By Owner Dec 16, 2009
No I don't, there has to be a reason to love someone. The reason doesn't exist when you first see that person unless your reason is based on attraction and I am not sure that would be called love...

love at first sight is for teenagers.
