my ex and I had love at first sight. We were both besotted with each other. We saw each other at a festival. He was friends with my friends but we never spoke to one another. When i got home from the festival he had messaged me online having found out my details from other people. I travelled to meet him the next week (as he lived in another city) and we told each other we loved each other. We eventually broke up because of the distance, but to this day I've never had such strong feelings like that fo someone.
I don't think so. Usually the initial feeling of infatuation we feel is more so lust than actual love. Though by that same token, I also don't buy into the secular Enlightenment idea of love as a mere emotional-high or feeling outside of your control. To me love is more of a decision, to do what you know is best for the beloved even at the expense of your own life. I remember talking to an elderly Palestinian lady at Church one time and she was telling me about her arranged marriage long ago. She said that her and her spouse LEARNED to love each other, through choosing to put each other first in their lives. The emotions are certainly natural and play a part, but ultimately they are fleeting and transitory.
no, how can you love someone without knowing anything about them?
maybe he/she looks like a 10/10 for you and you have a huge desire to get them now better and maybe you both end up in a relationship and love each other, but then it still wasn't love at first sight. it developed over time into love... that 10/10 could also have been a total asshole and your initial feeling would have turned into hate and not love!
Im not sure what to vote for. Because i fell in love with my ex gfs beauty the first time i saw her and once i got to know her I fell in love with her personality. But we were young though. Now a days i fall in love with womens beauty but not their personality so im gonna vote no!
