Why or why not? This was a topic in one of my classes today and the class was pretty divided... some even said they'd experienced it. Just thought I'd ask it here to see what you guys think!

The discussion must begin with a definition of love. I think love is a feeling of attachment, desire, wanting to be a part of someone's life despite knowing their faults and foibles. It is a feeling that makes you want to selflessly help your partner to accomplish all that they can and to maximize their happiness in life.
I think that "love at first sight" is lust, sometimes mixed with a need to be in love. How can you love someone who you don't know? When someone asks me why I love my girlfriend, I can talk for at least 15 minutes about all of her good qualities, her funny little quirks, her charming mannerisms, etc. If you fall in love at first sight and someone immediately asks you why you are in love, what can you say? She's beautiful/he's handsome. What else?1

I don't think that love at first sight exists. "At first sight" implies that two people fall in love based on solely their looks. Because of this, I would think that this is actually called "lust".
I may just be spouting rubbish; I'm only 13. So if you feel that this is incorrect, let me know, make my life easier for me so I don't go thinking that lust is love or vice versa.
Smile, Jesus loves you!1
