  • I believe there is. It happened to me only one time. You have this feeling that you can just tell that you will be able to love this person fully. Even though it didn't work out between us it was love at first site and it was wonderful while it lasted. I know this is true because she was the only person I ever loved like that.
  • I think it's definitely possible to lust at first sight. I think love usually takes a little longer, though. The way I think of it, lust is desire for the body. If you've only seen them, that's the extent of it. Love is (among other things) appreciating their personality, something that is hard, maybe impossible, to judge just from their outward appearance. The good news is, lust isn't necessarily a bad thing. It often leads to love since it gets you to spend more time learning about their non-visible gifts. Possible exceptions to love at first sight: a parent's love for a newborn you've been chatting online and just met them face to face
  • I dont think there is such a thing as love at first sight... not to be a romance killer but to believe in love at first sight, it is just by looking at someone, doesnt everyone always say dont judge a book by its cover? Sure, you can 'love' the way someone looks but you cant love them because you dont know them!
  • I see love at first sight as infatuation, as the others have said. the guy i'm with now, the first time i met him, i felt my heart racing.. and i knew that given time, we'd be together. i knew that i was attracted to him instantly, and how we could talk comfortably when i was told that he was very introverted and didn't speak to many people helped me know that what we shared early on was unique. but this was not love. and it still isn't. it may be at some point.. but it wasn't then. what's often described as love at first sight is a hunch that you will fall in love with this person. and often that's possible and it does happen, and that's what it's labeled as. you can't fall in love with someone the first time their eyes meet yours. but you can be damn sure that you will fall in love with them. just hope you're not wrong ;P
  • Yes, i think love at first site is possible. I saw him and there was immidiatly something about him (not at all physical) that from that moment until I finally talked to him wouldn't let me stop thinking about him and I got butterflies in my stomach every mention of his name. And when I DID start talking to him and getting to know him, it was even worse, i couldn't stay away from him. now I'm married to him 2 years so far and still very much in love. Now that we're married and talk about it, i know he was the same, his mom said the minute he saw me he bugged her until she introduced us. (she was a minister at my church so i knew her first but never even knew she had a son) of course i know this is a once in a life time thing!
  • Personally, I don't believe in "love at first sight" because for me, love is a process wherein you "fall" for the person or develop feelings for him/her. It doesn't happen in an instant but when you do fall in love, you can experience this like "seeing the person for the first time" even if you know each other or have seen each other before.Now you can also call that "love at first sight".
  • Oh yes!!!!! my wife and i met in 1965, by a chance meeting. our eyes met and folks, that was it! we did not have sex till after we were married. still married, after 40 years, and still going strong. this sounds unbelievable, but its true.......scouts honor!!
  • i think so.. but the down side is what if the other person doesnt see you? or if theyre the wrong one.. and you just fall, and that is when love starts to hurt.
  • Yes, I experienced it. I was introduced to a man that my sister in law worked with. We met at his second job and talked with him about her car, and had him check the oil etc... When we drove away, I told my sister in law that he was the one that I would marry, she laughed... About 3 months later we had a first date, and only 63 days later we were married. It lasted 23 years, only because he passed away. We would still be married besides.
  • I do, indeed, believe in love at first sight and I believe it can last. However, I also believe that it happens so rarely that everyone should be careful before jumping to this conclusion. A friend had an extremely hurtful end to just such a relationship.
  • There is NO such thing as love at first sight. It is a concept dreamed up by romantics who need a way to air-brush that deadly sin they find stirring inside of them. That tingle, that spark, that connection that you feel with a person upon first seeing him? Guess what, that is LUST. It is not, nor can it be, Love. Love is something that is built on far more. Compatibility, understanding, trust, security, respect... None of these are present upon a first meeting, and therefore, by definition, your feeling, however powerful, can not be love. Love at first sight is believed in by people who either don't know, or don't want to admit that the pull of a purely sexual attraction can be that intense. But it definitely can be. And there's not a damn thing wrong with acknowledging that.
  • I absolutely do believe in love at first sight and in my opinion goes along with soul mates. I was married and divorced, rasing two sons. I went to get my car fixed one day, looked at the mechanic and could not take my eyes off him. He is the one and only love of my life and always will be. He will never NOT be in my life. I never felt that way before or after him. That was not lust, or infatuation, esp after 15 years..:)
  • I believe.. but i haven't found her yet.
  • i hope there is such athing as love at first sight,i havent experienced yet,how can u love them at first sight,u dont really no them,maybe its lust that makes u wanna get to kno them then u fall in love
  • I believe so. 8 1/2 years ago I was still with my high school boyfriend. One of my male friends and I were hanging out, and he wanted to stop by his work to pick up his schedule. We stopped in, and across the room was this guy in a brown hat and red sweatshirt. I just felt drawn to him. I didn't know why. I couldn't even see him very well, as he was sitting in a dimly lit room (it was an answering service)...My friend and I left, and as we got in his car he handed me a piece of paper with a phone # on it... it was from the guy across the room! He said that the guy wanted me to have it. I told my friend that I had a bf already...so to tell the guy I couldn't call him... and I almost felt like crying as I said it! I had no idea why! I was just so sad that I couldn't meet the guy in his office! About a month later, my high school bf and I broke up because I had just graduated and was going to be moving out of town for college. We both knew we weren't going to stay together forever, so we split. 3 days later I was planning on going out to the beach with the same male friend, and a few other friends...we get to his house to pick up some stuff, and the guy from his work is there! Apparently he just wouldn't stop asking about me (and I hadn't stopped thinking about him) so my friend invited him along. I rode out in his car, talked to him the whole night, and he asked me out when he dropped me back off at home later that evening. We started dating, and we have been together for over 8 years now. We live together, and my friend has been taking me out to look at engagement rings because my bf wants to know what I like, but still wants to surprise me with a ring... so we will be engaged soon. We will spend the rest of our lives together... and I knew it the moment I first saw him. So in short: yes, there such a thing as love at first sight, and it can last. But, I don't believe it's the only way to find the love of your life.
  • Oh yes. my wife and met each other 41 years ago and it was two trains running head-on into each other. It was magic then and it continues today.

  • YES!!!! OFCOURSE THERE IS LOVE AT FIRST SIGHT. I MET MY BOYFRIEND 4 YEARS AGO WHEN WE WERE AT LUCH, HAD NEVER SEEN HIM BEFORE, WE HAVE BEEN INCREDIBLY HAPPY AND NOW WE ARE GETTING MARRIED. HE ASKED ME OUT JUST WHEN I HAD SEEN HIM ONLY 3 TIMES, NEVER WENT ON A DATE BUT AFTER WE STARTED GOING OUT. I KNEW SINCE THE FIRST TIME I SAW HIM THAT HE WAS THE ONE.

  • Yes and yes, but it's rare. I know love at first sight exists, because it happened to me and we're still together some umpteen years later.
  • Yes. I think they last. But lust at first sight probably does not.
  • Oh yes it is, it most certainly is! For 2 years has a love at first sight been in m heart, and only grown.
  • i dont really think so. i think you achieve love "real" love through of dedication to that significant other.
  • Yes, thats how I met my girlfriend. :D
  • Absolutely! We were both 17 years old in 1983 and 3 months away from our high school graduations (different high schools) when we met. We were both at a teen hangout in another town. He had seen me there the week before and had come back the next week to look for me. We got together, talked, and danced and he walked me out to my car and I gave him my phone number and wrote down my name "so you won't forget me" I told him. "I WON'T forget you," he assured me. I remember drifting off to sleep that night thinking, "I just met him but I feel like I've known him all my life." We didn't tell each other what the other was thinking that night until months later after we had broken up and then started seeing each other again. When I asked him one night if he believed in love at first sight, he looked at me shocked and said, "I was going to ask you the same thing!" That's when he asked me, "Why do you think I came back looking for you that next week?" He had seen me, pointed me out to his friend, and told him, "That is the girl I'm going to marry one day." Then, I told him of how I had felt like I'd always known him since the first night we met. The reason we had broken up had been because he was scared of what he felt for me. We had only dated for 3 months when, being young and dumb, he chose to run away from me instead of trying to deal with what he felt. However, a few months later, he came back to me saying that he just couldn't forget about me and he wanted me in his life; however, he wanted to slow things down. We had a long-distance relationship for about two years while we were at different colleges but it all worked out in the end. We've been married over 20 years now.
  • It can happen and it can last. But it lasts best with commitment, growth, refinement, and tenacity. It works best in those who know that love is hard work and worth every minute of it.
  • Yes, definitely. How it goes from there is uncertain, though
  • yes, acting on it can be the hard part.
  • Fall in LUST at first sight the love comes later when you get to know the person. I do not mean lust in the baser term
  • Yes..Love at first sight is possible.
  • No I don't. I think you'd have to truly get to know a person before you love them. The love at first sight is, at least to me, based purely off of looks.
  • No. I think people confuse it with lust or infatuation at first sight.
  • no, I believe in attraction (and strong attraction) at first sight, I'd say that's the spark for love but love is a flame that needs, not only the spark but also the fuel and the oxygen. You need more than that first attraction, need respect, understanding communication and sometimes even luck.
  • No. I believe in love at the 2nd, 3rd...and last sight to the day that I die.
  • Yes, I had only known him for 10 minutes when I knew he was the one for me and me for him. We dated for 3 weeks and were engaged 4 weeks, we were married 23 years, 4 kids, 3 grandkids.. I would still be married to him today, but he passed away.
  • I have been in love with Halle Berry since first laying eyes on her ... lol
  • I have no idea wether to believe in it or not.
  • Yes, im certain that it happens all the time.
  • No. I believe to love someone, you have to get to know their personality before you can even say you love them. Love is blind after all, so the two would contradict each other. I do believe though, that sometimes you can sense it. You can't be sure, but you can have an incling first time you see them
  • No! Love is a very deep emotional connection. You can't love someone just by looking at them! Now lust is another matter. You can lust at first sight and it is possible that the lust turns into love with time.
  • lust is more like it
  • Because it is so blind you only see what you want to see in front of you!
  • I'm not a big believer in love at first sight, so I would have to say it is impossible to be both. I believe love only comes from knowing a person and being compatible with them emotionally.
  • i believe the two sayings have two entirely different meanings. Read your question over and over and see if it hits home to you.
  • Love is not really blind,just short sighted.
  • Love is blind, refers metaphorically for us not choosing who we fall in love with. You don't control who you love, I don't think that's possible. Love at first sight usually refers to an instant attraction to someone, typically physically, but not always as sometimes people connect on a thought and emotional level very quickly. So, in fact, I believe that the two sayings are actually linked to each other in some small way. Or at least I think so anyways~
  • Love, no. Lust and infatuation at first sight, yes.
  • I believe in lust at first sight. Infatuation is impossible since I would not spoken to them to become infatuated. But I have lusted on first sight a few times in my life.
  • I certainly believe in Physical attraction at first sight. I think love is something that builds with time. Although of course a lot of those first sight attractions do turn to love
  • Yes. I've known it to happen. Not to me, personally, (yet), but a few friends of mine are still together after seeing one another for the first time.
  • no i believe in lust at first sight!
  • Not as such. I believe in "Very Strong Attraction at first sight" and "Lust at first sight", and even sometimes "Compatability at first sight". But real love is something that can only truly develope after knowing a person for some time, the time that it takes to develope can vary greatly, and there are instances of there being a great latent potential for love between two people at first sight. But I do not believe that real love can be felt for someone at 'First Sight'.
  • I do believe in love at first sight, but there is also lust at first sight and first love. Never tell anyone you are not in a serious relationship with, that you love them, or they will run and you will never see them again. Just be friends for now & see where it goes
  • I agree love at first sight is commonly confused with lust. I believe in the more rare event of recognizing your soulmate. Trust me, when it happens you won't have to ask any questions.
  • love at first sight? i don't believe in that. i think ppl are attracted to each other...love comes way after..telling someone you're in love...i think it all depends on the other person...
  • Never happend for me, (yet), but a few friends of mine who claim love at first sight are still together. (It's been over 20 years for both couples.)
  • The "love at first sight" is just a strong physical attraction that gives you the impression that you are in love, but you're not. It takes time to fall in love. There's a lot of step before starting to fall in love. When married couple said "It was love at first sight", it's not entirely true, they started dated, etc. and it worked out very well.
  • It is more likely lust and love builds over a period of time.
  • I do not believe in 'Love at first sight'. I believe that it is initial lust, and maybe some really strong feelings, but I don't believe that you can truly love someone based on looks alone. I also don't believe in "the one", but that is for a whole other thread.
  • I think that 'love at first sight' is just some other way of pretending, of exagerrating what was really just an acknowledgement of each others existence. I do not believe in love at first site, but that might also be because I don't trust others very easily. I like to take the time to get to know people before anything happens, in general. Whether it be a school project, a relationship, a collaboration of some sort. I'm not easy with trusting in many forms, and on many levels.

  • For some people yes - I do
  • im not about to tell someone they are wrong when they claim that they experienced it. i do however experience lust at first sight all the time.
  • Nah, it can only be lust first of all. If it carrys on then people change it into love at first sight.
  • I can "like" someone at first sight and be attracted to them but I could not have a love relationship with them without firstly being friends and getting to know them. Attraction often draws you together but unless you know and love them first then I couldn't really call that love.
  • absolutley i love my girlfriend with all my heart and have done since the first time i sore her
  • Certainly I have been in love with the same lady that I met 35 yrs ago at first site love. It was just a great connection. We still love each other but are not co habitants because it makes it so much better
  • hell yes, well if it werent love then it certainly is now. When i met my partner 3 years ago, I had hold myself back from jumping him, he was back then and still is the most gorgeous person Ive ever seen, maybe it was lust, but we've been together for a year, and the first time we kissed it certainly felt like Love! :D
  • I believe in lust at first sight, but the thought that a certain facial proportion, body proportion and perhaps clothing could make you 'fall in love' with somebody is rather rediculous to me.
  • I believe in attraction at first site. It takes at least an hour or so for something a bit more;-)
  • Lust at first sight, yes. Love at first sight, no. Love to me is a combination of respect, admiration, attraction, and butterfly goosebumps. You get maybe two of those at first sight. The rest takes time to develop.
  • Physical attraction yes. Love NO that is something that grows with knowledge and time
  • Do I believe in love at first sight? Yes, and I believe that this is a very dangerous thing too.
  • yes I believe in love at first sight and have had the experience. Doesn't mean the other party feels the same way
  • I think there is "Lust" at first sight. How can you really & truly love someone you don't know at all or even know the first thing about? Love grows afterwards.
  • no. i believe you can be attracted to someone but to me love is about trust and understanding and you dont get that instantly..
  • No, that is lame! i believe in break-ups at first sight!
  • Love at first sight is possible;however, it isnt the full on love that there could possibly be. You could be extremly attracted to and mistake that as love at first sight.but Like,spoken below, love is trust and understanding that grow within time.
  • Not at all... First sight is just an crush or infactuations.. and no more..
  • Nope. Love is too deep and complex an emotion to develop in the space of a few seconds. What I believe accounts for the "love at first sight" phenomenon is confirmation bias.. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Confirmation_bias and the 'rewritable' nature of human memory. In short, you see someone, you experience attraction/lust, you meet, you fall in love, and your brain rewrites your memories of that first encounter with your in-love emotional state, so you remember that first encounter as 'love at first sight'. http://www.randomhouse.com/kvpa/gilbert/
  • impossible. you don't know someone just by looking at them. i do believe in "damn that bitch is fine!" at first sight, though.
  • No..I believe its all infatuation at first and then love builds. (or not)
  • didnt you already ask this?
  • Yes i do,its happened to me before and it is real. Dont know why your question got downrated but iv rated you to bring it back up.
  • lust...yes/love...no
  • I believe in lust at first sight, but love is something that is cultivated, it takes time to grow it and it is hard work. It is worth it though.
  • No, I believe in attraction and/or lust at first sight.
  • I would never fall in love by just seeing someone. I'd need to see her, ponder her, talk with her, listen to her, and make sure she can properly use apostrophes. Only then would I fall in love. As Indigo said, lust at first sight is very possible.
  • Do you mean love at first sight? If you do, then i personally dont belive in it. I dont believe you can look at a stranger and fall in love wiv them. You can be attracted to them but i dont belive you can fall in love so quick with someone you dont know.
  • I believe in infatuation at first sight.
  • So far, with me, it's only been the new flavor of ice cream sundae. Still looking for "Mr Right". :)
  • Mutual interest at first sight is real. Love takes time.
  • it is not a myth but IM not sure its is what you might call true love.. love does take time.. you can have a lustful feeling towards someone on first site
  • I guess it could be possible, I believe it is more common to fall in lust at first sight.
  • Yes. I did. Not lust (for gawd's sake, I'm over 60!)but love. We married.
  • Certainly in lust at first sight i think the love grows with time and respect for one another but it could be very quick.
  • Yes, but it isn't love, it's biology - a pure chemical reaction. Have you ever noticed how some people smell better to you than others? I am not talking about after shaves or perfumes or deoderants. I am speaking of pheromones. (A chemical secreted that influences the behavior or development of others of the same species, often functioning as an attractant of the opposite sex.) It's just one of the many ways of sorting out the possibles from the no ways! Unfortunately, becuse it is purely chemical, it can be very misleading. They might look good and smell good, but the personality could be sadly lacking. So it is important not to act on chemistry alone.
  • There really is no such thing as love at first sight...it's a nice thought but love is something more complex than that. Love is something that grows slowly with 2 people and when it reaches maturity there is no stronger bond between two people. When we see someone for the first time, we're seeing not knowing. Seeing meaning by beauty or lust. love has no room for lust. or jelousy. Being attracted to someone by looks is perfectly normal...but it doesn't make up love. That could be why divorce rates are so high, people are forgetting what love is.
  • I think it's more like lust at first sight.
  • Nothing at all like it, doesnt happen to often but when it does, oh so nice,
