Love at first sight: Is it possible?
Do people really meet and in moments simply know they’re meant to be? New evidence suggests that yes, they do.
The idea is wonderfully romantic:
Two strangers see each other “across a crowded room,” there’s an instant attraction, an electric spark, and suddenly they’ve found their match and never look back. In a world where dating often requires a lot of work — work that comes with disappointment, rejection, and uncertainty — falling in love at first sight has strong appeal.
People say it happens all the time. If you start with personal testaments, love at first sight seems like the real deal. Prince Harry reportedly experienced it, saying he knew Meghan Markle was the one for him the “very first time we met” (BBC interview).
Of course, celebrities have no monopoly on the phenomenon; some evidence suggests that about 60 percent of people have experienced it (Naumann, 2004).
You probably have friends who swear this happened to them, or maybe you yourself just “knew” in that very first moment you laid eyes on your current partner.
But did it really happen?
Anecdotally but when put to scientific scrutiny the answer is a resounding NO (Source)
It doesn’t exist and don’t even tell me you believe in it without a proper explanation.
Whatever happens on the first meeting is ATTRACTION and not love
Meeting someone for the first time,something must attract you to them. It could be their way of speaking,dance steps,dressing or smiles.
It doesn’t mean you love them,it only means they have caught your fancy. Attraction can be channeled to love and can also bring heart-break if not well handled.
Attraction is an interest. Someone’s black thick eyes can instantly attract you to them.
It doesn’t mean you are ready enough to call it love.
Love has many definition. It is an intense feelings of affection and care toward someone while attraction is the action or power of evoking interest in or liking for someone or something.
Attraction at first sight happens,not love. So that is the based on the definition.
It doesn’t mean you shouldn’t be very friendly the first time you meet people but don’t be fast to think you are in love because what you still have is ATTRACTION which can be grown, developed in to love or shattered into heartbreak.
Here are my personal 26 characteristics you can be attracted to in people that have nothing to do with their physical appearance.
1. Their hand writings.
2. Their laugh.
4. Being confident without being arrogant.
5. When their smiles makes other people smiles.
6. The way they quote their favorite movies.(Indian)
7. Their voice.
8. Being able to admit they are wrong
9. Their secrets
If you can’t trust the one you are with, trust you won’t be with them long.
10. Their walking step.
11. Their knowledge on wide range of topics.
12. Their sense of humor
Would you rather be hanging around with a grouch?
15. Their love of sports
15. Their humility.
But of course!
22. Their good social skills – they know how to have a friendly conversation.
24. Their loyalty.
25.Their talk of motivation and drive.
With the above characteristics mentioned I can now stand on my own view : THERE IS NO THING AS LOVE AT FIRST SIGHT
Am not here to make anybody find fault in me. This is my own personal view on this topic.
