Is it true that love happens at first sight? Many people do not believe in love at first sight. On the other hand, some individual feels that they fell in love the moment they had a chance to look deep into each other’s eyes. That first sight, that first moment, that first silent exchange of feelings through the eyes changed their entire life.
Perhaps it is possible to fall in love across a crowded room as the old song says. However, again, it is the eyes that hold the primary attraction. This has been shown over the ages. Romeo and Juliet also gazed into each other’s eyes while making their plans. There are many such cases, real and imagined, which are written about. Studies of the eyes when they see someone they either feel very fond of or are in love with show that the pupils widen significantly.
There have been many studies on the topic of love at first sight. According to a recent study done by University of Chicago, it can be easily determined if it is love or lust just, by the way, the people stare and their angle of stare. With the help of eye tracking, we can know if the two people are digging for love or bodies easily. Unromantic people would call it only a lust while those who believe in romance probably fantasize about this phenomenon.
They say eyes are a window into the soul. So when two people gaze at each other for the first time, what are the chances that an instant connection is established? One that does not require the crutches of words or expressions. Silence turns into a language and words become unnecessary. Is it possible today? The questions beg attention because this modern age and era are ruled by the cynic mind- one that is suspicious, questions ulterior motives, looks for doubts and secrets in the eyes. Can love at first sight still spark interest between two individuals? That depends on how a person sees the world or how willing he or she is to set themselves up for heartbreak. Love at first sight is like jumping off a cliff- not knowing whether the person will ever surface again or be pulled under for the rest of their lives. This risk, the rush of adrenaline and the forbiddenness of Love at First Sight is what makes it all the more appealing for a romantic.
Some may call it a rubbish and claim love can only be gained through getting to know each other. In order to be for someone in love you got to know all about their interests, morals and characters. On the other side, men and women love to share their stories how they met someone somewhere, and all it took was one moment, one stare, and they fell in love.
The debate is same as which come first, egg or the hen. It shall go on probably forever. Love at first sight or lust, no matter which way you look at this, it is still interesting to read stories and watch movies made on this topic.
Its impossible to love at first sight.
When one thinks of love they should think of it in the most intimate sense. Love cannot be thrown around because it is far more that an emotion or a feeling, its a state of being. Being in love does not essentially mean thinking of that person nonstop, being attracted to that person. Its a metaphysical connection of the soul. When you love someone you take into account all of their flaws and all of their promising aspects and chose to take them as they are. Love involves acceptance, and by that I mean that you love someone fully not halfheartedly. Love at first sight is impossible, because you don't know who that person is, they don't have a sign with everything about them on it. All you see is the exterior and you can like the way someone looks but you can't love them when you first see them. When you say you love someone you're insinuating that you love what they look like as well as who they are, if you don't know that then you cant love someone. Love without knowledge is not love at all, its lust and desire to know more. I'm 16 and even I know this....
Love is not in the air
You cant just go looking at every guy or girl thinking that it is live at first sight. You have to get to know the person first before you think you love them. You want to now what their personality is. If you see a really pretty girl or a handsome guy, and later find out that they are complete jerks, then that will suck for you and you will be heart broken.
You have to get to know them
If you claim to love someone at first site, that's exactly it. You only love the first glimpse of them. You don't actually know them yet. They could be an ax murderer or something, or they might actually be a nice person. My point is, you don't really know them, so its not true love.
I kind of agree yet disagree SOCIAL MEDIA GIVES AN UNREALISTIC DEFINITION OF LOVE.
I'm not saying that I don't believe in love at first sight and I am not saying that I do. I feel that social media influences teens ways of loving a young man or women. For example just girly things tumblr post, "Best friends make the best relationships, feeling like you belong in his arms, hope that your relationships never ends, bad boys<3" These are some of the quotes I found of just girly things. I feel that the more people start to believe in that bad boys are cute or best friends make the best relationships, they began to search for those guys to be in a relationship. Once they search for it, then it wouldn't be considered love at first sight. Everyone is different in what they love, but when you are told what to love, then it wouldn't be considered love at first sight. Before we start to ask if we believe in love at first sight lets ask what love is?
It does not happen?
You dont know about anything about that person. What do you share with that person? Love takes understanding, trust and time to develop. It feels like you want to become a better person for that person and accepting everything of that person. Doing it with just one look? Really? ~ ALJQ
You Can't Look at a Person For the First Time and Call it Love
It is not possible to fall in love at first sight. It is called lust or desire. It's lust because don't know the person. You don't have a clue about their personality. Of course you could guess but they could be totally different on the inside. Spending time with the person is the best way to know if you're in love. If they were a mass murder would you love them then???
It is NOT REAL.
For example, you saw a girl/boy and instantly admired her and you would even say "I'm in love." and then suddenly he/she was hit by a car. Would you cry? Would you mourn to death? NO. Because you don' know him/her at all. Yes, you get attracted at first sight but you can't call it love just because he/she is physically perfect for you.
Love at first night is not real.
Love at first sight is not real simply because you can't love a person just by how they look. You fall in love when you get to know the person and know their personality. You may be attracted at first sight but not love. It's simple, you can't fall in love with looks.
Love is not real
No one I know has tried to claim that they have fallen in love at first site because like me many people do not believe in it. People who claim to have fallen in love at first site often do not stay together very long. I do not believe in love at first site because you have to know the person first, there are books of fairy tales, and others do not believe in it. Love is not based on how someone looks but on how the 2 people are similar and complement each other. If love were based on looks every girl would fall in love with the same guy and every guy would fall in love with the same girl. Plus one can look amazing yet have a heart of sewage and be nothing like the man you imagined you would fall in love with. The saying, do not judge a book by its cover, is very prevalent here. There are also books of fairy tales if the concept of love at first site were true we would have no need for these stories instead we would read the real thing. As it is there are no or very few true books about “love at first site”. Imagine if love at first site was real we would have no need for dating, the first person people dated would be there husband, and couples would get married much faster. Love at first site is not real it is simply lust.
Love at first sight is not true.
Love at first sight is not called love, its called lust. When I met this one girl, I thought she was pretty, but I wasn't in LOVE with her. But after I talked to her and became friends with her, I started to like her more and more, and now I love her with all my heart. When you see someone who's really "hot" its not "love" at first sight.
