Love takes time. This is my belief, others may be right, but this is what I think. You can see sombody and like them at first sight, but to love sombody at first sight is a misunderstanding of the word. Love takes time to develope, unless your a 12 year old kid getting into internet relationships over some game, love takes time. Ever hear of "Sombody worth kissing takes a while to kiss" It means sombody you are truely in love with is harder to kiss than just anybody. Love, to me, is not a first sight thing. Its a long term relationship that requires a meaningful bond you can't just get in two seconds.

I'm sorry, but I find that offensive. First of all, meeting someone online isn't just a child's game, it's no different than meeting someone anywhere else. And it's very insulting to say that people who fell in love at first sight, or otherwise instantly have a shallow, meaningless relationship. I think that's just rude.

Love consists more complex dimensions than just physical thing or first impression. I fully agree with ngdoubleog. You will not meet somebody and suddenly say that you love him/her. If you said straightly to him/her, what will he/she possibly think about you? If you meet someone,talk to him/her, and being impressed by him/her, it means you like him/her; and you feel that you have many things match between you and him/her (match in term of his/her attitude, his/her way of talking, his/her charm, his/her look) but it's not love because the connection is only in the surface. You only like what appears in the surface. Love needs deeper connections which cannot be established by just a short period of time such as one meeting. Of course the period of time will be different from one case to another, but it surely not instant.

Honestly, not always. Sometimes it can happen instantly and it does not make the love any less meaningful. I'm sorry you have never experienced love at first sight, but it is a wonderful and magical feeling. It is NOT shallow or meaningless.

Well, I have always believed that love takes time. That you need to know the person and not just physically be attracted to them for "love" to develop. Having said this, I have to admit that I have many relatives and friends who have known someone for just a few hours/days and have said this is the person I will be with for the rest of my life - and the ARE!! So, I would have to say both ways.

both the ways......it depends on the people. Some fall in love at a glance....jus like that. Some would take years to understand each other and then fall in love. Either way this feeling is wonderful. D'u agree ???

It surely takes time. There are no such thing as instant love. You should know someone enough to be in love with the person. Love grows from time to time, it's not just an instant admiration to someone. Instant feeling grow to someone isn't love.

That's not always true. I fell in love in an instant and it IS love.

for me, love happens if we both know each other.. hahaha, of course we have to classified which one is love and which one is admiring. I saw a very beautiful girl and i only admire her, not more. But i have an ordinary fat friend, i know her for 4 years, and i realize that i love her so much.. so yes, love takes time
