There's been a bit of discussion here about Hollywood's version of romantic relationships the last couple of days. Someone made a comment about how people don't fall for each other like they do in the movies by bumping into each other "and then their eyes met." I was wondering if that's something Hollywood fabricated or if anybody has actually experienced it

I fell in love with this girl on an amazing trip to Europe.
the second I set eyes on her and we were both singing in the tour bus and looking into one another's eyes.
From that moment we knew that we had to get to know eachother and that we had something special.
We continued to flirt during the next 10 days and by the end of it were were madly in love and so we kept in touch when we got back home. 3 years later and I still haven't scared her off :)2

It's not fabricated. But the Hollywood like the rest of the world over-romanticize it and over spiritualize romantic love. There is no such thing as soulmate's as that is a Greek/Roman myth. There is no such thing as falling in love, as that is based on hormones and fleeting emotions. Real mature love is about choice and sacrifice. It is not all about you. Love doesn't force you to do something you don't want to do. BUT, there is such thing as instant attraction especially true for people who knows exactly what they want and need in a romantic partner. However, I just say that it's very rare to truly find that nowadays in a world who bases love on lust.
" Someone made a comment about how people don't fall for each other like they do in the movies by bumping into each other "and then their eyes met." " I cannot say I agree nor disagree with this. Yes, it often does sound make-believe, and it's true that movies over-exaggerate things, the same with people's stories. But who, knows. It may have been a reality to somebody. I always relationships are how you make it. You can make it a true love story or another version of '50 shades of Grey'. And others just 'goes with the flow' or what 'feel's good/right' to them. Often making terrible mistakes because instead of thinking critically, they choice to discard wisdom for 'follow your heart'.1
