Sometimes we fall in love with someone we don't even know or someone we met the first time. In buses or public jeepneys you may also find yourself falling in love with someone next to you without even talking to him/her. What do you think of this feeling? Can this be turn into true love and eventually a deep relationship?

Well, Let me tell you about my story. I meet her in the first day when I go to university. We meet at school's dormitory. We talk some stuff about studying. Then I feel that I fall in love at her. Later, I meet her more and we have a love. We have graduated 2 years ago and now we are married. Do you thinks my story is so good? I belive in love at first sight!

It's hard to say really. My father says he just " knew" she was the one and they have been married for almost 30 years coming soon. I would have to say that it isn't a value of love per se but an infatuation of incredible stature. You see an angel in your eyes and you desperately don't know what to say nor feel.

That's true also, but because our society defined infatuation as being love, it's hard sometimes to determine whether you are falling in love or just having desire.

Whenever it happens with me ( I do admit it ) I normally see how I feel after the 2nd date or so and see if the feeling is the same.

Hello! I do not believe in love at first sight though, for me, it might just be crush at first sight. Love on the other hand can be cultivated after meeting the person that you got crush on the first sight and knowing him/her then you can truly say that you love him/her on the second sight, lol! Kidding aside, love for me is very deep and cannot be measured by setting your eyes on the person alone. I need to know the person first and see if we are compatible with each other, after building a relationship with the person, and knowing that he loves me in return, that would be the most important for me. :-)

Yes I believe on that, you can truly say that you love him/her the second sight. I believe in the saying that "love is even greater the second time around". LOL

Hehe, yah that is quite true, love is better the second time around, since you are now aware of the relationship's status, or the things that need adjustment in order for the relationship to work this time around. :-)

First, we have to know the true meaning of love and what it really means to us. I don't really believe in love at first sight. In the first place how can you love someone you don't know. That kind of feeling is not love but attraction because the basis is more on physical. Love is unconditional and must be built in a relationship.

You got a good point there, but in our society right now, they defined that feeling as being love and that's what we called "eros" in Greek. Love has different meanings defending on who is the person involved. Maybe for us we do not consider it as love, but for some others who experienced it, it's true love.

I guess this is what we called it admiration. As human, we are capable of admiring. Yet sometimes they also refer this love at first. This is true, eventually, when you are able to chat or talk a little, the admiration me eventually get deeper, and sometimes you see yourself one day longing for his or her presence and you are already in love by that person. Good day and happy mylotting.

Yes it may be true for others who felt it and eventually get into deeper relationship, but for some, it's just an admiration or infatuation that easily fade.

Well it may works for some people but not to me. I'm pretty picky when it comes about relationship. I don't just only consider the feeling I have but I also will consider the person's attitude, personality, cleanliness and so on. So if I ever happened to see someone in public and liked him at first sight, I will not do anything about it unless if we are living in a same place, or there's a chance to see each other once a day you know to really get to know each other. I prefer to be a friend first before love because I will have some times to actually make sure if I was ready to give my heart to the person or not and if he will really look after it and not hurt it anytime he likes. Have a nice day

I agree, I'm also picky when it comes to relationship, the feelings that we feel sometimes is tricky, we can't just tell that we fall in love just because we attracted to someone we met for the first time, it may change eventually as time goes by.

Hi ariel bsn: I don't think so. When I think about love, I am always thinking about a deeper feeling. So, basically I think that when people say that they have just "felt in love from the first sight" they simply have an attraction to this other person but this is not love, at least at this moment of the relationship. Love needs time, I think in order to meet a person, to know him/her and start creating something. Thajnks for starting this very interesting discussion. Have a nice day. ALVARO

You're right, it could only be infatuation when you have an attraction to someone but some other people defined it as love.

Love  - Love at first sight
I do believe love at first sight . But its a deep feeling to love a person at first sight . It might also be said as attraction but we will not be attracted to all the person we see at first sight. Yes it can be turned into true love and a very good relationship . But first you have to be friend whom so ever it may be than you have to check that the person is fit for the long term relationship . Every good looking person may not be having good character.

I believe in attraction and infatuation and desire at first sight. i don't believe in true love at first sight though. Love takes time to blossom. If it;s love at first sight, how can you know that it is real?

That's a good point. I'll give you a plus on that.

No not really, we can be attracted to people and see positives in them but love is a strong feeling that develops over time, but enough time where you actually really do know the person rather than instantanious where as when you just meet, that isn't love. Maybe meeting someone, spending time with them and getting to know eachother more and learning more and doing things together as a couple may then later develop into true love, i guess with this only time would really tell. But you have to make an effort to let them know that you are interested in them, then you take it from there and see where it leads to.

No,I don't believe on that sayings.At first impulse you can not distinguished love from lust or infatuation because its the first time you saw her/his.Maybe you have seen something in her/his which you don't see to others..,Love should be nourish in order to survive so it takes time...

I don't believe on this. Love is not made in a blink of an eye. First impression may last, but it doesn't mean that when you saw a guy for the first time, and you like him/her at that first seeing, it is love already. Love can be developed from that, but It is now love that you felt when you saw, it is just admiration.

Yes,it happens to a lot of people. It happened to someone I know who gave up a bright future in the US after he met the woman he wanted to spend the rest of his life with. Three days after meeting her, they eloped and seven children after, they have increased their clan with 17 grandchildren and 3 great grandchildren. Amazing.

hi mate,, love is a beautiful feeling. i felt it 3 years ago. to your question, i do not believe in love at first sight, because love is so deep, you are ready to do anything for that person. i do not think you would get that feeling at first sight at least not for me. NOTHING CAN HAPPEN MORE BEAUTIFUL THAN LOVE...
