In most TV plays and movies, we can find easily that the hero and the heroine fall in love with each other at first sight. You may hear of one saying that art comes from real life but higher or more profound than it. Nowadays, many of young girls believe that it is in real life and expect for falling in love with their Mr. Right at first sight. Do you believe that there really exists falling in love at first sight in real life? Why or why not? In your opinion, will they be happy forever? Share your thoughts, mylotters? Thank you in advance.:)

Nope, not for me... That almost sounds like a fairy tale happening... I used to believe in love at first sight, but as i get older... I realised... Its not the case... If love at first sight exists, its only the mutual attraction coz of looks, u nv noe if the other partner is suitable for u anot... So its beeter to find out more about each other before i take actions...

My dear Friend, First i should be thankful to you for asking a question like this ,which matters most in our true life.I think the love we fall in with the first sight, is the true love we will engaged in our life.Because...that's the love we could feel to our heart instantly.Even the quickest things end in short..love doesn't like that.We may say after some time.."I don't like her".But the truth is we still love her within our mind.But we don't like to accept it. Thank you,

I guess it does exist, only if you take that piece of initial crush/infatuation to be your love. Mostly it's the looks or a subtle strain of personality that hooks us to a person at first sight. Whether this goes on to form a strong bondage is questionable. As staying together requires more than just crush or infatuation. But i guess, one can still call it love-at-1st-sight.

I dissagree... there i no LOVE AT THE FIRST SIGHT! Couse I think that Love is the top seat of feeling chart in human raise. attractive might be the right word to determine "Love at the first sight", couse I believe, Love is grow when we know each other better. First sight? Impossible!

I do not belive in love at first sight - attraction YES - but not love. I do think that love is a strong word and that love is something you do when you know a persos good and bad sides, this you do not the first time you see someone. I do not take the word love lightly =)

I think what you have here is... "false love". Hehehehe... I am not saying that it is wrong, or anything. What my point is... is that people who do fall in love when they first laid eyes on a certain person are superficial. Because they wopuld of course, love the aesthetics first before really getting to know the person. This is rather common, and it usually doesnt last... well, except if overtime you begin to see past the exterior and learn to also love the interior... what is within the person, what is essential for one love to last. :) I think true love is something that is nurtured... something that grows stronger in time. It isnt something that would be decided at first glance... there are a lot of complex emotions that humans experience... and most of the time, the deep intense feelings we get could be easily mistaken for love but is actually not. :) So I guess the main bullet point of this rant.. lols is, I dont believe in love at first sight... :P lust at first sight, possibly. hehe Blessed be.

Hello, gretats. After reading what you said, I think you're probably an expert of love(hehe...). I learned more from you. Yeah, you're right. It may be superficial for those people who fall in love at first glance. I agree with you that true love do need to be nurtured. We need time to know her/his inhterior not just the exterior. I'm glad to share your opinions. Thanks a lot. Have a happy day! ^_^

Hello,mexshyl,I believe some of the people will really fall in love at the first sight with others,but i will not happen to me.Although first impression is very important,it is hard for me to love someone,it will take a lot of time for me to observe whether the guy is nice and has good personality or not, I will not go into relationship just because I have good impression on the guys at first sight. May ne I am not a romantic person and cannot be like those in the TV episodes:P

Hello, easy888. I think you're a reasonable girl.:) It's ok. You'll never act on impulse. Yeah, we need time to know him well, not just judging from his handsome appearance. Those in TV episodes are just unreal for us. We should be ourselves in real life. Have a nice day! ^_^

i believe that someone may feel that different feeling at first sight but i dont believe its love because there would be many reasons in feeling that way 1) maybe the physical appearance of the person involved is very attractive 2) maybe they find same things in them 3) or maybe just because they are fond of knowing others these are just my opinion

I believe so that there is love at first sights. I have no idea on how to explain this but I know there is. Some will end with a marriage and some will end with no ending.

I remember this quote as I read your post: "Who loves that did not love at first sight?" It means that many kinds of love arise because we loved that person the minute we saw them. Of course this can sound idealistic: some of us abhor certain people, but learn how to love them as we know them better. But isn't that what love is, too? Making a compromise? So maybe we never really hate people at first sight: we're just doubtful, but a seed of love exists in us that prompts us to make a compromise and think better of them. On the other hand, it could also be lust. I believe real love exists when people learn how to live with each other. Love is what is left over when all the youthful passion and fondness is gone.
