    Re: Do you believe in love at first sight?

    I'm kind of cynical when it comes to love at first sight, and I blame Shakespeare.

    His definition of love at first sight, in Romeo and Juliet, was lust. And for the most part, he's right. When you're attracted to someone, very strongly as in R&J, it's usually about sex and/or infatuation. It's usually about the intensive emotional feeling when you first meet someone you like. Metaphorically in R&J, "love at first sight" doesn't end well, and causes a lot of grief.

    For those that have stayed with their partners for years and years, and claim to have fallen in love at first sight, well... I think it's more of an expression of how much you love someone right now. I don't think anyone really knows if or how much they love someone based on appearances, otherwise that's pretty shallow, and therefore lust/infatuation. I mean, anyone who has been with a partner for years and years, can certainly say/justify love at first sight and say they're and example of it. But I think the years spent together has more to do with that, than the first sight.

    But that's just me

    Nope. Lust at first sight? Hell, yes. Love takes a lot, lot longer.

    No, definitely not.

    You can say at the first sight if someone is attractive to you (many women told me they cannot even be sure of that at the first sight), but you cannot find out if you have enough in common to spend you life with each other or even a few years.

    Even if we keep to discuss about physical attraction only there are some aspects you cannot be sure of at first sight (voice e.g.).

    Re: Do you believe in love at first sight?

    In all fairness, the first time I met my current boyfriend, it was a blind date essentially (we met online). And when I saw him walking across the parking lot in the sunshine, I was blown away by how tall, handsome, and amazing he looked. It was like there was a light around him.

    But, I was dating several people (not seriously), and it took a good two months for us to become exclusive, on both our parts.

    Love at first sight is usually cured by a careful second look.

    It seems like most people have doubts about love at first sight.
