i experinced this wonderful thing.i was envolved with someone at the time,and my sister wanted me to go out with her boyfriends best friend and i kept telling her no,because he was envolved with someone to,and i didnt want that kind of trouble.but months went on and i kept asking myself if i should.just because i was curious.my father was sick at the time with cancer in bed at our home and he kept telling me to get rid of my boyfriend i have now and go out with my sisters boyfriends friend.my father has met him but i never did,and my father kept saying it everyday just do it you will be so much happier.so for new years i made my father a promise that i would go out and meet him.it put the biggest smile on my fathers face,because he was so sick. so we finally met,and for the first time in my life i knew the moment we laid eyes on each other,he was the one and my father was right.so we both broke up with our partners,and started going out.sadly my father passed but he knew his little girl was happy and taken care of.we got married 6 months later and have a 36 month old son and 25 month old boy/girl twins.we are the happiest ever.and i know in my heart i made my father proud.we are now married 4 years almost.and it has been the best 4 years of my live and wouldnt change it for the world.

I definitely believe it does happen for some, when I was about 15years old I saw a fella on Television and thought he was the most beautiful person I had ever seen, he was a pop singer, oh yes you say all girls do that but I couldn't get this boy out of my head, I started going to his concerts and there was something that was unexplainable, years went by and I still followed his career, I had a few relationships but they all knew how I felt about this guy, more years went by and he made a bit of a come back so I went to see him and I still had that special feeling, more years went by and he made another come back so I started going to a few of his gigs, he started coming up and talking to me and soon I was going to all his gigs and he would always come a sit at our table for a little while and he started giving me tapes of his unrecorded songs then one day musch to my shock he rang me up and asked me to go with him to a country gig this was the start of a very special friendship, people would tell me they could see how I felt about him just by looking at me, he gave me the most wonderful 18months of my life, changing my life, I knew he wasn't really well but I didn't know he was so unwell he passed away 18months after that first wonderful day... Today I still feel exactly the same way I felt when I saw him on my TV screen...so it can happen but I think it only happens to a few.

for me maybe yes... and i also think it happened to me but sad to say it's gone because of some difficulties like he never like and i when i knew that he found out that i liked him i didn't like the feeling anymore of laying my attention to him... my friends always say that i shouldn't deprive myself but i can't help it...

Oh yes. Years back, 1989, I was working in this building when a tall young man comes walking in, we turned to look at each other briefly. He smiled as I smiled back. After his "business" in that building he had to pass by me to exit. Istead of leaving he stop and we started a small conversation.. his eyes shined brighter than I could ever imagine the heavens shining and his smile made me melt - I fell for him. Within that 10 minute conversation I said to myself, and mentioned this to my family members, that I will marry this man some day. Within the next four years I had seen him here and there holding small chats and exchanging smiles. Come 1990 and I hadn't seen him in a years time so I married another (we did not last more than 4 years) Anyway, in late 1993 "my love" returned and we met again by chance. We got together in 1994, married in 1996, married to this day and we are still much in love with each other. Love at first sight does exsist & I thank God for my husband everyday.

I fell in love with my husband the minute I saw him. He had this wavy dark brown almost black hair, brown eyes, and I guess, part olive and part beige skin. He can tan. And he was just the right height. I wanted to kill the girl he was talking to and we were at a church home meeting so it shows you how much I wanted her to disappear and have him all to myself. Well soon he lost interest in her and honed into me. We started dating, listening to Floyd Cramer, going to restaurants, and in three months he proposed and we have been married for thirty-four years.

I have had a similar thing happen to me, and I am married to the man I feel inlove with at first sight. We met in 2000 so we know eachother VERY well. He is the love of my life and I couldn't imagine myself spending the rest of my life with anyone else! Have A Great Day, PurpleTeddyBear.

Well Lilangels I know I am late but before this I could not answer this question but I dont know if mine could be said it is love at first sight (see my discussion - He thinks I am Gorgeous) but all I know is that I am happy and was told that I am glowing. I was skeptical that he could have loved me on sight but I have seen where this actually is real in him and I am happy. I have never felt this close to anyone of the opposite gender in a very long time and yes I am happy. It hasnt happen for me but I know it is possible.

Not so much now, because I have given up on love, but certainly when I was in my twenties this happened a lot, and usually, typically my awful luck in life I fell in love with the wrong person! And couldn't get out of the infatuation and I couldn't shake off the feelings and it took me ages to centre my attention on someone else! Never have I fell in love with someone and won them! Unlucky in love this Wolfie is!

It happened to me only once and it hit me strong. I 17 and I saw him at the concert among at least 1000 people. My best friend knew him and introduced me to him. He phoned me next day and we started with long phone calls first and just then started dating.We were together for 3 months as he wasn't very into relationships but I was crazy in love with him.

I never knew this Pattie. Sounds very beautiful, thank you for sharing it. I wish you, your husband and your kids a wonderful life. As for your initial question, it didn't really work like that for me. Infatuation, yes it happens but its easily dispellable at least for me. But to fall in love on a gaze...its a little hard for me to grasp. Hmm. I could just need to relax a bit, or perhaps I just need to live a little longer to get it. I've been through a lot, but there is always more...
