Love at first sight for me is very funny because i keep thinking it is based on physical attraction. if you don't like what you see, how can you fall in love with it? or in this case, him or her? if the love interest were unkempt or unattractive in anyway what would be the reaction, honestly? do you believe in love at first sight?

I remember about 6 years ago there was this song and it said in one of the verses I knew I loved you before I met you. I hated this song because of that line. I thought it was such a lie. I was only about 17 then though so I didnt really think to in depth about all the possiblities back then. I still feel some what like I used to but different about it as well. I do not think you can love someone before you meet them unless it is your child growing inside of you or your spouse etc. When I was young I hadent thought about that possibility I just flat out thought there was no way you could love someone without meeting them and actually getting to know them then it could develop into love. I agree with this when it comes to relationships but now that I am a mother I can honestly say that I did love my unborn babies before they were born!

You might find this a bit strange coming from a bloke, but the answer is yes. I first met the young woman that is my fiance about eight years ago and I fell in love with her the moment that I saw her. It wasn't a physical thing as such - I just saw her and instinctively knew that I was meant to be with her. We didn't go out together because she had a boyfriend at the time and has since been married and divorced. I met another woman and lived with her. But me and my fiance met again and went out for a drink nearly two years ago. And we haven't spent a day apart since, other than going to work. I love her as much now, if not more. And I am certain that we will grow old together. As I said it's not necessarily a physical thing - in this case it was instinctive and still is. Perhaps I am a very lucky man!

No, your first love doesn't always turn out to be the most accurate or your best bet IMO

You are very lucky. The same thing happened with my fiance and I. We were 14 when we met. I just knew that he was THE ONE. We only talked for a few minutes because my friend and I were going to the movies, and his dad wouldn't let him join us. So, we left. Over the years, I just could not get him out of my mind. But we didn't see each other. We were both living our lives. And then it happened. About a year after I got divorced (I was married for 5 years), he walked into the store that I was working in. That has been 8 years ago, and we now have two beautiful children and are planning our wedding. (That is him in the pic with our daughter.) Do you want to know the funny thing? He told me (before I said to him how I felt) that he never stopped thinking about me, and wonders how our lives would have been if we had had those extra 9 years together. He is still mad at his father for not letting him go with us on that day so long ago. I believe that we fell in love on that day. We were meant to be together.

I definitely believe in love at first site. But I also believe that you have to work to make love grow and remain strong. I fell at first site for a man and still love him to this day but sadly he is married to someone else now.

Yes, I believe love at first sight does happen. Love at the first sight of the external appearance of a person comes first. Then if both of them have the kind love of chemistry, they may develop further. Thereafter, to realise each other's inner beauty, and accepting each other's weakness, which needs a longer time to achieve. Thus, I believe love at first sight is initially attracted by the external appearance first. It may not need to be good looking, but to each individual's liking.

I believe love grows. And growth involves time. Love is not merely on physicall atraction but more on knowing the person more deeply.

I do not believe in, because love will fade as time flies.

Not necessarily. My parents have been in love (and married) with each other for 39 years. There isn't a day that goes by that I see a change in their relationship.

I think it varies for every person. For most it probably starts with seeing their looks. But I think there is a connection when you see somebody that you should be with for the rest of your life. In my opinion it all happens when your eyes meet. You get that feeling, and just know that is the person you want to spend the rest of your life with.

I believe in love at first sight. Yes it may be physical attraction but that is not completely true. It could also be the way that person is treating you at the moment. Love is not always based on the outside, its also whats inside. A great looking person, may not have the same intelligenties level as you, or be on the same wavelength. Love is funny though, it creates a lot more good/bad stress on the relationship; regardless of the type.

I do not believe in love at first sight cause true love for someone is found within!! You really can't get that from first glance or sight. Loving someone is loving and respecting everything they are and you can't get that from first meetings

yes , i belive in love at first sight , when such things happens to me. i can tell you that , i always forgeted what the bad happening to me. i always tried to help them , but never told anyone ever about my feelings, & i read their minds & activities & the result came that one or two of them also attracted towards me , we live a good manner , but never discuss about any topic of love. & i mean that it is our fresh & pure love. we hav't touch each other at once also.

I didnt believe in love at first sight untill I met my current boyfriend. We met on easter. My friend brought him to dinner and we really hit it off. I wasent looking I actually was happy being single but my friends kept trying to hook me up. anyway, this guy and i have been inseperable ever since. things have been moving so fast my head is spinning. so yes, I kind of do believe in love at first sight.

nope. it's just attraction at first time. love should be worked on and takes longer time to gain it. i don't really believe in that.

I dont believe in love at first site..been there done that and all it got me was a broken heart. If you find someone that you might love at first site think twice about it and what the long run of things are. Is it going to be someone that you feel you could spend the rest of your life with or is it just because of the way the person looks. Looks are not everything it is what's inside a person that counts.
