Have you experienced falling in love at first sight? Probably you've heard this question when you were still in High School or College.. It's widely believed that love at first sight is not TRUE and real LOVE but infatuation. Love and attraction are two different things. I guess I believe in Attraction at first sight?. What about you? I wanna know your opinion about this.

I don't believe in the love at first sight. I do believe in attraction at first site. I saw a guy in a bar one night when I was out with my girlfriend. He was gorgeous! I liked him immediately. I was in a pretty long relationship with him. So I think that it happens and it has for me.

Yes I think it happens. It is the first when you either like a person or not. If you do not like the first look then I am sure you will not like the person ever. One can adjust with the person in future but not that fire spark there. I feel the flame in the first place or I will never. I think this is love and this is the way it happens.

no to be honest i don't believe that. because you can't fall in love with one person when you see her or him firstly. you must get along with her or him and you will know if he or she is suitable for you. maybe some people fall in love with each other, they married and live a happy life. i think it is not always. you will know what she likes and what life she want to be, and then you can decide if you will be together or if you will marry.

Actually I believe in love at first sight,and the girl who I love for the most till now I was fall in love with her at the first sight though we do not end up with a marriage because some reason,firstly you need to be attracted by someone then you will have the motivation to pursuit her. But there is another point of view,some one need a long time to cultivate the relationship and will love each other graduately,different people have different way so for this topic I will we should concrete problem need a concrete analysis.

Before I never believe in love at first sight, but when one day I saw someone at school, she is so beautiful and looks smart. So I asked one of my friend if she knows that person, she said yes.. then I told my friend to introduce me to her..then it happened.. and now we are still together as my partner in life, and I wouldn't be as happy now if it wasnt for her.. So yes I do believe in love at first sight..

Honestly,i do believe in that.I fall in love with the guy because of the feeling and then we talk and that makes me feel more pressure and my heartbeat is crazy.Well,people needs to get along and then see whether you two are meant to be.I believe that amazing feeling being attracted.

I posted a similar discussion about 1 year ago. I fell in love with someone at the first sight I saw him. And I miss him sometimes even I know it's only my own feeling. But it's OK. He has his life and I live mine. This is the fact and is the best result, I guess.

I completely agree with what you said. That people are often infatuated with one another at first. I think that it takes a lot more time to really get to know someone and to fall in love with them. Not that it takes long to fall in love but I don't believe it's love at first sight. It can be attraction though.

I think love at first sight happen yet, to only few people only. I knew few stories about love at first sight and they became successful. But, I would prefer to say attraction at first sight and love at the second sight :),. In today's generation many people are looking a searching for love, some believe love at first sight, other's don't believe it. But in love there is only one thing that is for certain and that is "love sees and examine" yes, true love will see and examine, that is why I don't believe in the saying; "love is blind" love is not blind, and it will never be, it's the lovers that are blinded by their love to their partner. True love sees and examine because you will try to see the failure of your partner and tell him/her about the failure and both of you will try to make that failure into success, looking the failure of your partner doesn't mean counting it, for true love never counts wrong. True love examines because you are not only relying on what you feel inside but you're also considering what you've seen outside. Perhaps attraction and love can happen at first sight but true love will be created in the second sight ;)

"Attraction at first sight" sounds more appropriate than "love at first sight". If someone strongly believes that it is love at first sight, then I guess they have a very shallow meaning of love.

I agree with you 100%. I don't see how love at first sight gonna work. You still have to spend time with that particular person to know whether he/she is the ultimate person you want to spend your rest of the life with. Most likely you like the person at first sight, because he/she give you the attraction you desire. That is most likely the answer to it.
