Not by looks alone, but as strange as it may seem, I felt an instant love attraction for my wife the first time I ever met her! It is very hard to explain, but I just KNEW we were going to be together the first time I saw her and the rest is history!

Thanks for the response James. I am glad to hear that you felt so strongly about your wife. Sometimes love doesn't happen right away and in some instances you can feel an instant attraction upon meeting someone.

Have I ever fallen in love under 5 minutes? I'm not sure to be honest, but I felt a definate connection between myself and one boyfriend and I later went on to marry up, set up home in a foreign country etc, so I guess maybe you can fall in love in under five minutes. Or, perhaps it's just lust. When I was younger, my mother told me I was too young to be in love with a guy I dated at school, but I disagree. I think love is one of those mysterious things that has no rules and can happen when you least expect it, regardless of age or how long you have known the person you believe yourself to be falling in love with. So, in answer to the question, I'm not sure, but I think it's definately possible!

I guess for some people it could be possible after only a couple of minutes. There could be a special connection between two spirits and then who knows, right? Thank you for replying.

Yes but not just for looks. On Oct 17th 2003 I went out with a friend. He had asked me to go with him just for a little bit. So as we were walking into the place I scanned the place and said what table are we going to. (I didn't know his friends) my friend pointed the table out and I said to him "see that guy there in the black shirt - I want him" I was literaly daydreaming about out wedding sitting there at the table and I didn't even know his name!!! We ended up spending that night together and here we are 5 years later still spending our nights together.

I think falling in love involves a lot more than a five minute thing. But I do agree that love can happen at the first sight. © ronaldinu 2008

Hi bamakelly! I wouldn't call that love, more like lust or extreme pyhsical attraction.I have become completely enamored of someone I've only just met, and I put that down to a combination of looks, presence and personality.

LOL. I've been infatuated in under five minutes but it usually expires. But fallen in love, I guess that's another way of saying love at first sight. I didn't realize how silly it sounds not until you rephrase it. I appreciate what you posted, it brought me to a realization.

NO not really. If a person feel in love as many times as that just because of looks then i dont believe its love at all. Love is a very special feeling that most people now still dont understand. Maybe i would agree that a person feel in love more than once but not for a reason that it's just because of looks. Love is more than internal feeling. Real love is immeasurable so you cannot just fell in love with someone with the way he look.It's just an admiration to the person and thats it. It can only be love if same feelings is there no matter what happens to the person.What if he have an accident and his face is damaged or he become crimpled? If the feelings doesnt fade then that is real love ...if you still stay with the relationship then that shows that you love him but its just one example though.

OMG of course not...and quite frankly I dont see that as even possible really...Its not possible for me at least..I need to get to know a person better before even thinking along the lines of love. Spend time with them etc ya know...I think that anyone who claims love THAT quickly isnt loving but lusting...OR in a serious state of desperation or something which of course also makes it NOT love..

Its easy to fall in love with someone in 5 minutes and its also very easy to broke up in five minutes.I fell love in five minutes while i traveling in local bus and broke my heart in five minutes when she got out next stop.So falling love in short time is easy but when you fall in love in short period,you dont care so much like you care in love that happened for long period f time.In five minutes love,feelings are not so intense to carry out for long time.You may carry it but its very rare.I feel 5 minute love is like a dream that comes and go away,you feel it good but when its gone you really dont care about it.

Definatly. When I was 13 I was madly in love with this guy named Jim. He drove a very nice done up chevy. He was 16, worked at a grocery store in the fish department. We chated online for a few weeks then he wanted to meet. So I went to the coffee shop outside his work and met him there for coffee. I seen him walking in his dorky uniform and before he even sat down I was head over heals madly deeply in love with him. Ever since then we have been best friends. We dated for on and off for 6 years, never had a real fight, it just didn't seem right. We were better off as friends and wow I still love him just as much. He's now in the military and has been coming and going to afghan, so it's been breaking my heart knowing hes over there. I also live 8 hours from home so I never get to see him. But we are very close still and talk as much as we can. He's just one of those guys I will love for the rest of my life. He's been everything to me for so long. I have a new boyfriend now, who is just as great, but he doesn't know to much about this guy. But he knows that hes a good friend and nothing would tear us apart. So that works. :)

Gotta go with the very first response you received - it's also not how I define love. Love is built on friendship and friendship is built on shared experiences and empathy. And as much as I like it that my boyfriend is good looking, it's not the only thing that counts :) Thanks for the comment on my discussion!

We are human beings. WE have our likes and disklikes. We may like a person instantly. Or on the other hand a person can puts us off. Yes it happens to me to like someone in just five minutes.

I have a friend that I have known for over 10 years now, maybe it was love, or maybe it was lust. But the minute I set eyes on him I was just head over heels. I still care for him deeply. We have an unusual relationship, I won't get into all of that. But needless to say we only get to see each other once in a blue moon. But we are always there to help one another if one of us needs something and we are at all in a position to help. I'll never forget the time that we spent getting to know each other 10 years ago. That was a very special time in my life. I think he helped me build my confidence as a person. Thank you for starting this discussion, and have a great day!

In love? No, in lust. i do it all the time. There are so many good looking athletes and film and t.v. stars that I see on t.v. All these guys are great looking and I can't help myself.
