Some people told me that when you see the ONE that's meant for you for the very FIRST time, it would really hit you -- you'll feel the 'love' for that person.. Would that be possible? Do you believe in love at FIRST sight? Why?

Perhaps because I haven't experienced it yet, but I don't believe in love at first sight. Attraction maybe but not love, not yet anyway.

I don't believe in it at all. How can a man look at a woman without knowing her and fall in love? A man who likes a woman upon seeing her is in lust, not love. Any man who looks at a woman and feels that he is in love either lacks maturity or suffers from an addictive personality. Two people will be pulled together by first being physically attracted to one another. But it is only after years of being with each other that they learn to love one another. Love is created through years, not seconds.

Yes, it can happen but it still needs a lot of work. One may like the other person from the first visual contact but looks are not enough for a long-lasting relationship. Now they have to see how their characters match, how much they have in common, how they get along, and what common goals do they have.

I absolutely believe in love at first sight. I have personally experienced it myself. I would not go so far as to say that everyone "knows" the moment they see someone. For many, many people it takes lots of time and understanding to fall in love with someone. I would also like to add that I do not believe in "the one". There are many people who can be good matches for you and you can fall in love more than once in your lifetime.

Hi WIWA No I don't believe in love at first sight if your basing it on what love involves I just can't see a person looking at someone for the very first time and saying I love that person without even getting to know what type of person they are besides feelings like that take time to develop you have to care about someone to love them and meeting someone for the first time before they even open their mouths and speak would not be enough for me to fall in love with anybody

i think love at first sight is more of physical attraction and the thought that yeah there can be greater possibility of liking the person because he/she looks nice. possibly you felt a "spark" or some "connection" but until you've bonded with him/her, you can't say it is love. in the first place, love grows and is being nurtured when you are actually with the person. it doesn't happen just by seeing the person for the first time. maybe the hormones tell you it is and psychologically you associate it with love and you mistake it for being in love with the person but in fact, we're not.

There is no love at first sight but there is physical attraction or lust at first sight. The physical attraction it was generate into love later and if it lust them and sorry there is no future in it. Moreover the physical attraction am talking of here depends on the motives of person involved. And I believe when you are in love you personally know them and understand them. I mean some people just see the person and would be like "I AM IN LOVE" and its like you don't even know the person, just seeing the person for the first time, so how can you be in love. So that's what I mean by I don't sort believe in it.

I haven't experienced it but I believe it can happen. But A fall in love with B at the first sight doesn't mean that B will also fall in love with A. So lover or marriage from first sight love is really a coincidence!

I thought I did, but now I know that he was just cute! Love is created eventually, I think.

Love is a really complex thing to feel it at first sight, so no. :) Asi simple as that
