Do you believe in love at first sight?

Did it happen to you? How long did it last/ is it lasting?

  • Not at all. I believe there can be strong mutual attraction at first sight, but not love. There was a very, very strong chemistry between my husband and I the first time we met, but I don't believe it was love at that point. We've been together over 15 years, by the way, so obviously there IS love, but I think it took time to develop.

  • Yes I do believe in it and I and dh are an example of it. I also believe you can fall in love over the internet, as I and dh are also an example of it. We celebrate our 8 year wedding anniversary in a week, been together 11 years total, have 2 great kids :-)

  • Yes. But be careful, love at first or second sight is deceiving. You see things with him in a different light. Then when you fall out of love with that person after two years, you see that man and think what the heck was the big deal over him? You start to see the flaws and physical part that just does not do it for you anymore. It is hard to explain love at first sight, but it does not last........

  • Oh, yes, I do. I fell in love with my husband the moment I first saw him, in 6th grade, and I knew then that he was going to be "the one" regardless of where life took us. And here we are today, happily married. :)

  • Not I don't. You can't love someone you don't even know. People are mistaking lust as love.
