Do You Believe in Love at First Sight?

By May 22, 2012

Follow me on:

There haven't been a lot of studies performed about the love at first sight phenomena, but countless books have been written on the subject, and I oftentimes feel surrounded by couples who feel their unions were decided upon exceptionally early into their relationships. eHarmony commercials tout married folks who openly state they "just knew" when they met that they'd get married, Arielle Ford's The Soulmate Secret pretty much relies on the concept to sell its premise, and one of my siblings recently celebrated her eighth year anniversary with the man she married three months after their first date.

As for me? I'd like to think that love at first sight is possible. There is an innate romanticism attached to the thought of meeting someone and having them hitting enough emotional triggers immediately to just know. Now, Have I ever had it happen? Not the love bit, but I've met three folks over a span of twenty years where I just knew they'd be a huge part of my evolution as a person; I just wasn't sure how initially. One became a great friend, another a very emotionally charged but short lived relationship (although we still stay in touch), and one recent, and still playing out. Not one have told I love them, although admittedly love all three very much. And thus, in my head, no love at first sight for me. A strong hunch, and a driving need to get to know someone better? Definitely.

But what about you? Do you believe in love at first sight? Why or why not?

No, I don’t believe you can just by passing by them or introducing yourselves to each other. However, I do believe that you can fall madly in love with someone by getting to know them and that the feelings you get from that can be so strong that you PERCEIVE love at first sight to be the only explanation.

If you don’t have a lot of experience dating, you’d immediately assume he/she is “the one” once you two clicked.

Today (6/22/09) my husband and I are celebrating our 11th wedding anniversary – and yes – it was LOVE at first sight. AND, before the love at first sight happened I was very clear about my intention to manifest big love (all of which is in my book THE SOULMATE SECRET. Here’s what I know for sure: BIG LVOE is possible for anyone of any age if you are willing to spend a little time getting absolutely clear about what you want and you prepare yourself on all levels for love. I have seen men and women of all ages make this work.
Wishing you love, laughter and magical kisses,
ARielle

*shakes head* Oh Trevor, how wrong you are…

I’m a cynic. Really. I think people are fundamentally stupid and leaders are fundamentally evil. I am no kind of hopeless romantic.

But love at first sight is very, very real. Know how I know? I’ve experienced it.

There was no retrospective pondering. There was no confusion on the difference between love and lust. It was what it was. And even a hopelessly sardonic person such as myself simply couldn’t deny the reality of it. I knew I loved this guy. The moment I saw him.

My job is such that I stand in the street and ask strangers to talk to me. Being a young, reasonably attractive female, I get asked to go out for coffee or a drink or lunch probably 2 to 3 times a day. I say “no thank you” 95% of the time, and most of the 5% of the time that I say “yes,” I only do so because it’s the last couple days before payday, I’m starving, and if someone wants to buy me a sandwich, I can live with that.

This guy asked to meet up with me, and I said yes. Not because I was poor or hungry. But because I genuinely wanted to. If he hadn’t asked me first, I’d have asked him. I knew within 30 seconds of setting eyes on him that I wanted to know him, that there was something special about him, that I loved him. I didn’t even get through my pitch. I had more important things to say to him.

We stood on the street talking on a level that I never get to with some of my best friends. And when we met up that evening, we talked like the closest of friends, the deepest of confidants.

He had to leave the next day – he was there traveling. But we’ve kept in touch. And every conversation I’ve had with him has been the best conversation that day. And when I pass his way on the way back into the country (we are both American, but I live abroad), I will go out of my way to visit him. I have to. I’m driven to.

I’m a cynic. Not an idiot. And I know love when I see it.

This was love. Yes. At first sight.

You know, I never use to really believe in this sort of thing until recently.

I have been in love once before, so I do know the feeling. However it hasn’t been for some time.

Let me just say that I’m out every weekend meeting new people all of the time, usually dates during the week with whomever I may see fit, so I’m no stranger to a new pretty face.

A few weeks ago I was sitting at a meeting when a division head walked in with a question, his new intern following him. Waking up from my regular meeting drowsiness… I glanced up and locked eyes with her almost automatically.. I couldn’t take my eyes off her. I casually looked away after a few moments as to hopefully not make it awkward, but I felt compelled to look back up..she instantly looked back again locking eyes.
While he was asking the question to another manager at the meeting, I looked up almost instinctively at her again and answered it for him, I felt like I had to say something even if it wasn’t pertinent to what I was thinking. As they walked out she turned her head around, looked directly at me, and smiled.

I’ve only seen her from a distance since then and unfortunately it’s never a situation when I can spark a conversation (we’ve still never spoken to each other), but for some reason I can’t take my eyes off this girl (and vice vsa) whenever I see her and shes been on my mind a lot, I’ve never been like this before for as long as I can remember.

For all I know she could be married with three kids or engaged etc, but I definitely know that this isn’t the same “I’d like to take her home tonight” or “I’ll try and get her number” feeling which is all I’ve been seeming to find as of late.

I’ve been in relationships after my “love” ended, but even when I first met those individuals; it was nothing like this.

I’m not saying I’m in love with this girl, but there is definitely something out of the ordinary about her, some sort of natural attraction or addiction that for the life of me I can’t explain :/

i know that this was posted two years ago but recently something like this happened to me, basically I was dumb and let her get away and now theres no going back and I will probably never see her again. i know that its two years later now but if I were you and you still saw her I would take a chance with her, because you never know when your going to come across a special someone like that again.

Believe it. I’m 47 years old and found the love of my life by accident. Won’t ponder you with the details but within a week of meeting her I told her I didn’t believe in love at first sight. She said she didn’t either. Then I added “Until I met you.”

Later that night we said ‘I love you’ for the first time. It’s been about six weeks since we met and I can’t live without her. I called my friend and told him I had found The One.

That’s what I call her now…’The One.”

NO.. You can not love a person just based upon first sight. To me, you meet and get to know a person completely …spiritually,physically,emotionally and the chemistry of coarse . There are steps and a little time involved to really know..You can be sparked quickly by physical attraction and fooled!!!!!

(9) Rose says:

I never believed it until now. A guy working in my office just lights up the room with his smile. He is the most perfect human being I have ever laid eyes on, but I think it is beyond lust. He makes me happy just to see him, on such a deep level, and I feel that I can see his soul, his personality, the wonderful, warm, funny, intelligent guy within him, behind all the bravado he tries to display! And when we talk, it is like my connection to him just comes alive, out of nowhere, and I just flirt and joke like crazy, and have to stop myself from jumping on him !

(10) Chris Parker says:

Yes, love is deeper than sight. But sometimes at first sight, you can tell a lot about a person and connect at a very deep level that is not about looks.

I also think that having this connection gets you through a lot and gives you something to come back to.

I have experienced love at first sight twice, once in September 1970 and once in December 1984. They were under quite different conditions and different experiences. The first was with a woman (girl), that I saw at a party, I was immediately drawn to her. We struggled in our relationship and could not effect a match on timing. I continue to think of her fondly every day, and we have never parted in such a way that we could not approach each other with assurance of a cordial reception. She was my mother in my most recent previous life (probably accounts for the attraction and the conflict). The other event involved a new assignment with a military unit, I saw a man across a room and I instantly felt like I had just seen an old friend. He is to this day my best friend. We go “way back,” at least 150 years. This was at least the third time we have served together. This is my explanation of love at first sight, it is only love at first sight with the current body. Spiritual beings know each other.

(12) Kelly says:

I am now an absolute believer. I married a guy I fell for slowly. I was not crazy about him at first – but I ended up falling in love with him. That marriage ended horribly and I was feeling very very guarded of myself. I had a lot of guys asking me out but I was set with being single for at least the next 6 months.

Then – not sure how this happened – but I met a guy last Friday and I seriously had this strong ‘love at first sight’ feeling. We hit it off immediately. He calls me every day and we can not wait to see each other again. We only met the one time – and we have made plans together through December. I have this overwhelming feeling like I just want to make him happy and have fun together.

It all sounds so silly and maybe it is. But I would not be a ‘love at first sight’ believer until now.

I was caught by surprised when invited to a party, before I got out of the car my brain when blank and a smile in the face as I looked at him I said to myself there he is: I don’t know why I said that, but he told me to seat on his lap and we kissed all night. We are inlove.

(16) LT says:

I am 38, I’ve been married (and “in love” or what I thought was love, but obviously it did not work out over the long haul) and I wouldn’t say I believed in “love at first sight” until about a week ago. The experience “J” had is VERY similar to mine, except I am the woman in the scenario.

Two men came to the door of my laboratory, and one of them continued in to the lab and simply asked for some paper towels. Our eyes definitely locked, and I swear neither of us could say anything. We were both completely frozen there, just staring in to each other’s eyes. It was the strangest moment I have ever experienced. Not like the times when I see some very attractive man and want to get his attention, so I stare…it’s as if there was nothing that could compel either of us to look away for a good 5 seconds (at least it felt that long). After that time of staring at each other, I said blandly “they are right in front of you” (because the paper towels were indeed in front of him and it was all I could think of to say). That was it: all the interaction we had, and I dwelled on that moment for a week. You must also understand this: there is nothing remarkable about him (he isn’t ugly, but no underwear model, either..more “Science Geek”, and not exactly “my usual type”. His very thin and tall, wears glasses, would blend in a crowd well. Looks smart, if that says anything. I’m located at a college campus/town and see all types throughout my day. We also have an ever-changing pool of attractive, educated men. But, none has ever caught me off guard like this.

As of yesterday, I gave up thinking that I would get to see him again, believing he maybe was just a visiting scientist or something…because surely after that intense moment, he would have tried to “bump” in to me at some point if he was still here, right??? Guys, would you try that after a moment like that? Or, maybe he tried and was not successful, so I am unaware of it. Or, maybe he is in a relationship. I had pretty much given up ever seeing him again, until…today:

I was showing someone around our building, and coming down the stairwell, and who do I see and lock eyes with AGAIN?? It virtually took my breath away. I am pretty sure my eyes followed his as he traveled halfway up the staircase until I could no longer see them. Not a word from either of us, again. But, what would either of us say?

Now, I really can’t get him out of my head. So much so that I Google “love at first sight” to see what comes up and I end up here. He looks somehow familiar, but I know I have never met him. I feel like he “gets” me even though he doesn’t know me. I feel like I am SUPPOSED to be with him, even though I am currently living with someone else. It is the most foreign, crazy feeling – and so out of character for me.

I also know a guy that this happened to many years ago now. He is married to the woman and they have two children. He knew the minute he saw her and even told my friend and I (because we were there the minute he saw her) “she is going to be my wife” before he ever even talked to her. I thought he was absolutely crazy, but now I am truly a believer.

(17) non-believer says:

I don’t believe in it whatsoever. I know it hasn’t happened to me, so how would I know, right? Well first of all, MAYBE it can happen. Like what? Once, if you’re lucky enough. To whoever said they fell love at first sight TWICE, I have to say, that’s quite impossible. But I guess it just all comes down to your own definition of “love” and if you believe in it or not.
Personally, I think to love someone, you don’t have a real reason to why you love them, it’s everything. For “love at first sight”, it’s impossible to know who or how the person is until you talk. Maybe it’ll all go well and there’s a strong connection between 2 people who just met. However, love only comes AFTER you start talking and understanding the other person. It takes time to love someone, because love is also when you care about someone more than you. It usually doesnt feel that way with a person you’ve just met, even though you may “love” them.

But I’m not saying it can’t happen. I’m just saying that I personally don’t believe in it. But who’s to say if it’s real or not

(18) Ashley says:

Its funny because as many of you have described… I never fully believed in this “love at first site” thing until this happened to me…

When I first saw him a while back, i literally grabbed my chest because I physically felt my heart give one tremendous beat. Id never been so immediately drawn to someone…. the way he spoke, his demeanor, the way he walked, what he talked about…everything. I felt that Id already known him somehow and immediately felt so comfortable. I felt automatically connected to him…attached. And his smile, omg…so genuine and amazing. He was so kind and warm and I can’t forget about how I felt…even though that time was short. We have only had a few encounters… but all were not the right type of opportunity to “pursue” him for lack of a better word.

Anyways, I know its supposed to be infatuation & lust…I mean I don’t know him well enough, right? But its just that I have thought about him every single day since the day I met him (maybe 8 months ago?). And every day I hope to see him again (we go to the same college…but there are over 30,000 people!). It makes me really sad that I haven’t seen him… And I can’t take interest in other guys! which is ridiculous! but its just that no one has ever given me a feeling comparable to this guy I met…. I know I sound obsessed but…well maybe I am haha. I swear im not some creep tho lol. this all sounds so stupid doesnt it? lol..its just that at the moment i first saw him…without hesitation…it immediately clicked that we were supposed to be together…

(19) Impossible Dreamer says:

Totally with you LT and Ashley. I too have been struck by that particular sort of lightening, but mine was 16 years ago.

It was my first day on the job at a school and I was being shown around by the senior teacher. I walked into a room and saw this senior student and felt the oddest sense of recognition, although I knew we had never met. We were introduced very briefly and my tour continued. I was barely ten steps down the hallway when I had the most powerful urge to run back, throw my arms around him and tell him that it was okay, I was here now, I loved him and I was never going to leave him. I had to remind myself that A/ he’d think I was insane and B/ I’d get the sack instantly. So I took the sensible route and resisted the urge, instead I worked on getting to meet him properly and get to know him.

This was in no way lust. I felt like I could see his heart and soul, and while his face was pretty his spirit left me speechless! I did get to know him, quite quickly as it turned out, and he was just as interested in getting to know me. When I left the job some months later we started a relationship. That turned out to be several years of heaven and hell, which left me mentally and emotionally ripped to shreads.

I’ve spent years researching, reading, trying to find an explaination; the best one I’ve come across is that this was (and is) a “Soul Connection”. 16 years later I’m married…to someone else, but he’s still in and out of my life, and still on my mind and in my heart like he was from that first moment. We can’t be “together” because we are too much fire and ice, our love is too hot and too intense to live with day to day. But it IS love, very deep, and very very real. Not a crush, not an infatuation, not an obsession but a mutual, abiding, sometimes terrifyingly overwhelming, unconditional love.

i consider myself a brilliant kind hearted person and until a few months ago i never believed in love at first sight.
im still very young only 19 and just began college last semester as well as a very consumptious business venture with two of my friends so falling madly in love with someone was not my main priority.i had just gotten out of an extremely long and unhealthy relationship as well which made the idea of entering another serious relationship even less appealing.

it was one of my first days at my college and when i walk into my class a girl whom i hadnt seen since middle school recognized me and said hey. i thought she was very sexy and definately would not mind going on a date with her but i sat down across the room and didnt pursue her.
during the class we had a 30 minute break to get some food or use the restroom w/e so i bought a drink and sat down in the lunch room alone with maybe a dozen other people who were on break scattered at different tables mostly girls tho. so im sitting there watching the tv they have on the wall in the lunch room and thinkin about how many beautiful girls i had seen at my new school when wouldnt you know it my old middle school friend walks up behind me and starts messing with my hair then gives me a flirty smirk and sits down we start talking blah blah blah she laughs at all my jokes then two of her other friends enter the lunch room and approach us so im sitting at a tiny square table flirting with theses three girls who are obviously interested in me.at this point i could sense every other girl in the room was staring at me without even looking at any of them. i am not overly confidant or arrogant at all infact i am much more self concious about myself then i can stand at times, but i am however extremely logical and can evaluate in certain situations like this i think anyones insticts draw out that emotion of knowing that every other girl in that room had some feeling of jealousy and wanted attention from me and only me.at this point im not being cocky but im definately feeding on being center stage to maybe 10 gorgeous girls who dont even know my name, im sure they were drawn to the mysteriousness it portrayed like i was some big shot who has three girls with him at all times, even still i knew i could walk away from the table, pursue any other women in that room and likely succeed.it was almost like they were all falling in love with me.

so there i am on my high horse feeling great about myself and the new friends im making at school….im center stage (and were putting it on wax, its the newww style!lol) when out of the corner of my left eye i see 3 maybe 4 girls walking through doors at the far end of the lunch room towards the library which is through doors at the opposite side behind me.anyways i turn my head i guess out of habit to see whos walking across the room and i find myself staring into the eyes of the most beautiful women i have ever seen in my life.it was only for literally a split second that left me only enough time to see her absolutely perfect face before her and the group entered the library.after seeing her i just shut down and was not interested in anything those girls had to say i was in shock. my brain felt like it was floating out of my head and my heart wanted to jump out and give itself to her.the way i can describe it is that i was basically looking into a mirror and saw everything i am and everything i will be in her.almost like she was my twin and we knew everything about each other except there was still so much we could talk about and experience together our lives would be some adventure.i just somehow knew she had been waiting to look into my eyes for years..

a few weeks went by i had been really busy and stressed out so i hadnt really thought about her unless i was at school walking down the halls on my way to class or hanging out somewhere in the building on break. even then i had almost given up hope and basically forgot what she even looked like. then after about 2 months, while im up in front of a class speaking about some stupid group project….. i walk up to start presenting and as soon as i look out to the classroom full of maybe 50 students i give a big smile and look out into the crowd and as i say hello im immediately looking directly into her eyes because she is sitting in the very back row.i have never been so warm and happy in my life.and while i see her friend next to her is whispering something in her ear she never breaks eye contact for one second. i couldnt bring myself to look back at her again because i could not concentrate during this speech. i ended up sounding fairly articulate but all i kept thinking standing up infront of the class after seeing her and knowing she was looking right at me was “i hope she feels the same im so in love she is absolutely perfect.”

it had now been twice i had only caught eye contact for a split second although long enough to gaze into her eyes and let her know how i felt. god she is so amazing. after that day we still had that class together i found out but i just never found the right moment to go up and talk to her because it had to be perfect and it always seemed like something was off when i would be like todays the day. we only had class once a week for about 2 months and the one day i arrived to class i was convinced that nothing would stop me from being with her but she didnt show up and i was left feeling so damn empty.on the last day of our class about a week or two ago i wanted to approach her after class because this could be my last shot. as soon as the teacher dismisses us her and her friend bolt out of the door it seems like and so i pack up my books and things as quickly as i can and start walking outside when i see her and her friend about 100 yards away to the right at the parking lot already about to get in their cars and my car is all the way on the other side to the left so i just said fuck it i’ll just go balls out and roll my window down on the way out in my car and so i drive out of the parking lot as quick as i can and i end up being stuck right behind her friend. i look around and see if shes maybe infront of her but no luck. there were definately so many things i could have done just to get it over with and formally introduce myself no matter what was going on but its deeper than that i have never been so emotionally invested in the hopes we would be together about any other person in my life. now heres my situation,i have no way of contacting her, now way of knowing if she is even still going to school next term,and i dont know a single person who is friends with her.im definately crazy for her ever since that last day of class i think about her atleast once a day.im not going to give up hope but the next time i see her i have to just make her mine.even thinking of that encounter gives me the worst butterflies ever.

love is the ultimate drug of obsession, and i know i would not feel this way about just any girl i happen to see walk by me, i know this because girls walk by me all the time and all i do i wish it was her…i never even thought about searching google for love at first sight until i met her because i wanted to rationalize it some other way like i was just horny or desperate and maybe just get over her i guess…but just like ashley said, the moment i saw her i knew that we were meant to be together.

so to answer your question Bonny, yes, i do believe in love at first sight.

I really never believed in it either, until it happened. One hellish ride it was too, actually.

I was dating this girl, and I meet her family. Her younger sister is just starting at me, red in the face. Normally, I would laugh at this kind of thing, but all of the sudden I wanted to talk to her, get to know her, hold her, protect her. All that jazz. Naturally I dismissed it, tried to ignore it. Sometimes I’d find myself googling her name randomly, or looking at a picture she had on facebook. I’d talk to her, and we’d joke. Everything was in the back of my mind, however, shortly after that, all the passion fell out of the relationship I was in with her older sister, which I tried desperately to get back. We broke up, and the next two relationship I’ve had have been basically passionless. Naturally, the girl I fell in love with was being pushed into the back of my mind, always there, but I never considered her as to be a cause of this. The next time I saw her (which was about a year later) all the feelings I had been hiding burst out into my head, really couldn’t be ignored. We started talking, and whenever she’d smile at me, I’d feel like what we had was above everything else in the world, nothing else was as important, and nothing really is. We’re together now, and quite happy.

Yes, I believe in it.

I didn’t finish reading the rest of the commons but I just read one person who disagree on love at first sight and the rest all believed in it. And I found it funny. Most of them has to do with looks, conversational skills..etc all that crap. Funny. Just imagine this. If the person you love right now, is a homeless person who smells. Would you still love her as you see her/him the first time? No right?

I’m a cynic…been one for as long as I can remember. I have no patience for people and I’m out of step with most of society…but one guy still makes my heart flutter.

I was in Naval ROTC for two years…and I went on a month long summer training during that time period. I met other people from all over the country..but there was one guy who I just clicked with. Though I only spent a short time with him, I just knew that I felt something for him…Sadly though, we go to different schools in different states. I am no longer in nrotc, but he still is. Even though it has been a while since I have seen him and the likelihood of us ever seeing each other again is slim, I know I felt something more than ‘like’ or ‘lust’ for him.

I believe in love at first sight because when it happens to you your feel like you were just hit with lightening. You can’t breath, think or understand what is happening. What you feel is the urge to be happy and your thoughts are filled with happy emotions! I have been hit with this sensation a few times but like earthquakes there are different levels. Most recently (and the reason why I am at this site b/c I googled it) I was hit. I can’t stop thinking about him! We both feel this way. Only the tale of time will tell but the feeling I feel now is worth the ride!

Yes, I believe in love at first sight. Unfortunately when it happened to me, I was too young to act on it. I had just turned 14 years old (I’m currently 43) and it was my first day at band camp. I looked up and gazed into the eyes of this guy coming up the dock that I was standing on and he pretended to rock it. He had this mischievous grin that spoke to me somehow and I felt something I had never felt and haven’t felt since — like electricity went right through my core. Because I was so attracted to him and so shy, however, I could barely speak to him and this continued throughout our high school years. He asked me out but I was so afraid of my attraction to him that I couldn’t go out with him. He flirted with me and many other girls, but nothing ever became of us. We both got married to other people and each had 4 children. Fast forward 29 years. We found each other again on facebook. He told me that he had thought of me all of these years and he hadn’t thought of a single other girl from high school. I told him that I had thought of him as well and that I never got over him. We both admitted that our marriages to our current partners were a mistake and that we are extremely unhappy in our marriages. Our wedding dates are also in the same month — except the numbers of the dates are transposed — the 13th and 31st. So, we’ve been chatting on facebook and now we’re best friends and he considers us soul mates and he’s the most amazing guy. We want to be together, but to do so would destroy both of our marriages and families. Still, we feel that we will be eventually. It’s as if a force is pulling us together and we can’t imagine being apart. Please, if anyone else feels love at first sight, don’t be afraid to act on it because if we had we might have lived wonderful lives together for the last 29 years. He told me that I was the only girl he could never get close to or kiss because he thought I was too good for him and I felt the same way about him. We were both nervous and afraid of our attraction to one another in high school, but now life is so complicated because we were afraid to act on the magnetic attraction we felt for one another and now we are living without one another. It’s so difficult.

One thing that a lot of you need to understand is loving someone and falling in love (at first sight) are completely two different things.

I think it is something you need to experience before you can know it exists. It has happened to me, so yes i believe. Before it happened, i was a total skeptic. Thought that to love you would have to know eachother truly. But I now believe that there are people out there that have connections, so compatable that they can tell instantly. When i met my husband, i knew that we would be together forever. I felt like he was looking straight into my soul. We went out that first night and talked like old friends. I felt more intimate with him the first night than i did at any point in my previous long term realtionships.

To whoever mentioned the homeless person scenario, wrong (at least for me). The person whom I fell in love with at first sight was homeless…living at friends’ houses, jumping from couch to couch, because he didn’t have enough money to support himself. Over a year later and we still talk almost everyday and are just as crazy about each other when we first met. He may not have money or be successful, and as much as I want to fight it (because my head tells me it’s absolutely ridiculous), I can’t because he’s the one and my heart is his. I never had a chance in hell. I feel like love is the reflection of your soul in another. It’s so pure and wholly consuming it doesn’t really matter what the situation is as long as you don’t let yourself get in the way, freak out, run away, or try to rationalize it.

I agree with the comment that love at first sight and loving someone are different, but I don’t believe they are necessarily mutually exclusive.

I was working one day at my grocery store and a new stock boy walked in. I walked over and said hi and he said hey and i had the most confusing, awesome feeling that I was going to spend of the rest of my life with him. I didn’t even know his name. We became friends after a couple of days. That was August. We were until January.
We’re dating now.

(36) Raka says:

I think falling in love and logical selection are two different things. People who believe in love at first sight, just fall in love. People who dont are logical selectors. I believe in natural love, and that is the only purest form of love. The rest of all kinds are just intended, selfish and manupulated. So yes I believe in love at first sight because when two living beings fall in love and if it is true compatibility it has to happen at the very first moment of interraction. I would say, love at first interraction and not just sight, because when it happened to me my eyes froze into his, I could only smell him and my heart was skipping beats and I had goosebumps. It has to do with mother nature, natural selection, like the pheromones in insects. And yes it is science. It has nothing to do with good looks. People who do not believe in it have not got a chance to experience this biological phenomenon. When they take time to fall in love they are actually analyzing, judging the other person and making a mathematical calculation whether that person is suitable partner or not. That is definitely not love. Animals dont select mates by judging maybe because they dont have that sense of judgement but what they have is pure love, natural selection and hence love at first interraction. By the way I have experience both sides of the story with two wonderful people in my life so I know how it is both ways.

(37) Jesse says:

Yes.

I am a skeptic on all fronts, and I was on this for a long time. I have been in a few relationships where I thought I was in love with a person. Even my last relationship I thought I was. But I found myself trying to intellectualize and find reasons why I was in love with her. The problem was, like the others, I wasn’t. Sure, I may have loved them as people, but wasn’t “in love”.

Until I met her. I was actually still in my prior relationship. Although I respected that prior relationship until the end, when I met her, I knew I felt something I had never felt before.

This is the thing: I didn’t idolize her, or even idealize her. I just knew I could accept her no matter what. It was love at first sight, something I scoffed at when I heard about it. But I realize I did that because I never experienced it.

(38) J says:

LT, your story is so similar to mine. There’s this man I keep running into. The first couple of times, we only saw each from a distance, but we were looking at each other. The next time after that (this happened in two different cities, I live in a third city, in a different country), he was standing close to where I was. He turned to look at me and when our eyes met, I thought my head was going to explode. I couldn’t believe the feeling. It was like looking in a mirror. There seemed to be some kind of inexplicable connection. I think the intention was to flirt, but the fact is, neither one of us could. We were completely floored. Who knows what will happen next, but I feel something will. I’ve never experienced anything like this in my whole life.

Love at first sight exists and it’s worth believing in. You can’t have it if you don’t believe in it. Swallow your pride, disbelievers. Pride is nonsense. Love is all.

Also like many others on here I did not believe in love at first sight! Until about two years ago. My story is a little different than most. I was very shallow, picky, I had never even considered dating any guy with out a six pack.

The first day at my new job. I had been a single mother for about a year then. I had been there about a week when I was standing in the hall way at the same time a different department went to break. A good friend of mine was in the crowed when I made the comment “Don’t you guys ever work?” just then a woman turned around and gave me a horrible look. As soon as we made eye contact the look disappeared I knew right then I had to have her. Yes I fell for a woman one look is all it took now two years later we are “work” friends but I go out of my way to talk to her everyday. And on the days I don’t she gets upset. I don’t know what to do! But I do believe in love at first sight!

Yes, I do believe in love at first sight. I experienced it myself with my current boyfriend. We have been together for over a year now, and we intend on getting married as soon as we can get some money saved up. I met him a while ago, but as soon as our eyes met, both of us experienced this “out of body” moment.

I have been madly in love with him ever since.

(42) It is what it is says:

I’ve felt it twice. First one 6 1/2 yrs ago, second time not quite a month ago. First time I walked past a storefront, saw this man working in the store. Had to literally turn around and walk back and look again. Something about him just stopped my breath. I met him a few days later and ended up leaving the guy I was with for him. (The guy i left was a brief, long distance thing..) Was head over heels immediately. It didn’t work as we just couldn’t get on the same page, though for me, all the way through, it was all those cliche things you hear about love. The connection between us couldn’t be denied though and I’m quite sure this wasn’t our first life together, in whatever sort of bond.
He passed away in Feb 08. Until then I spent my time thinking somehow we would find a way to get back together and make it work. After that I just stayed in my stuck, settled, easy life with someone who was a ‘logical’ choice. Then came not even a month ago. My friend posts a song on Facebook and says “you’ve gotta hear this guy!!”. I melted listening to his singing and guitar. I found the site his music is posted on and listened to all of it, more than once. I wrote him asking about him playing out. He ended up finding me on Facebook and adding me. From there we talked and joked completely naturally together while I fell for his heart, his spirit, his humor, and his looks. :) I found out he was going to a local concert and told him I was “probably” going. I arrived with the boyfriend of five years and immediately knew that was him when i saw him. We all chatted and then went to watch the show. The ENTIRE show I was completely overwhelmed with the fact that I, not wanted to, but SHOULD be sitting with him, comfortable, snuggled, watching the show with him. Not where I was. (This was a Sat.) It was SO strong that I realized by Sun night I had to break off my relationship, whether he felt the same or not. I wrote him this cryptic message and thanked him for being him and for showing me what I needed to do. He wouldn’t let me leave it at that and we met to talk on Mon. By Mon night I had told a friend that he’s The One. By Tue I had ended my relationship. He has many similaritys to my ex, who I will always love, but this works and goes both ways, and of course he is his own person and I love him for him. As my ex was a very spiritual person, and I never would be able to understand my new love completely without that time with my ex, I’m thinking my ex just came along to get me ready. We came close to saying the words tonight, which is only just over a week since we even met, so I ran a search and here I am. Yes, love at first site is real. Very, very real, and as absolutely CRAZY as it looks to the rest of the world, it’s amazing. I smile all day and night thinking about him, breathlessly waiting until we’re together again. I have no doubt that this is it, and that I’m where I’m supposed to be now.
Have I mentioned, I love his smile, his heart, his soul, his intelligence, his humor, his looks, his, his, lol.
And to: “Anon says: I didn’t finish reading the rest of the commons but I just read one person who disagree on love at first sight and the rest all believed in it. And I found it funny. Most of them has to do with looks, conversational skills..etc all that crap. Funny. Just imagine this. If the person you love right now, is a homeless person who smells. Would you still love her as you see her/him the first time? No right?”….
My love is nowhere near in the position I thought I would date. He is rebuilding his life and has close to nothing right now. Guess what, when you feel this, that DOESN’T MATTER. You just know that this moment in time won’t last forever and all will work out. ;)

Thank God for this site…maybe I am not crazy????
I was haunted by his face from the first glance of his photo on a dating Web site, and our two weeks worth of e-mails were light-hearted but non-stop. When I finally waited for him to arrive for our first face-to-face meeting I was shaking– atypically nervous–and sweating…I had NO IDEA why I would be reacting like this…When I opened the door and saw his face for the first time I was overwhelmed and had to go sit down under a fan…I was over-heated and nervous-felt like I could not breathe. I’d met so many men before this and had tons of dates, and this never happened to me before…I had no explanation for it. I couldn’t keep my eyes or hands off of him from the absolute get-go. It made me happy watching him be display joy at eating a particulary good pork-chop. INSANE. We had 3 wonderful dates and I was on cloud 9. Then he went back to his girlfriend who had pushed him out of her life…she is dying from cancer–she changed her mind. I am not angry or hurt…I understand. He told me of the situation prior to our dates. But I think of him every single day. I feel I love him, and since I am 49 years old, intelligent and reasonably stable, I feel this is crazy. But I do not have any desire to date anyone else. I don’t know what to think of this. That is why I, like you other people, Googled “love at first site.” I just needed to write this down. I am praying to God for whatever is best for all involved to happen. God knows this; I do not. But right now all I feel is love for him even though he is with the other person. We are in touch but keeping it occassional and light. I would not disrespect his current relationship and situation.

I have never felt like this before….I was on vacation and on my last day there I was at a bar and I had a few drinks so my memory was kind of blurry….. I was with my friends and we walked into the pub went straight for the bar grabbed drinks and somehow just made it to this table….. My friend started talking to a girl so I politely was making conversation with another girl at the table and everything she was saying we just clicked and just felt like wow its like this was the girl I’ve imagined about looks aside her whole persona, laid back attitude, profession, I can’t even describe it I was even telling her how cool she was….. and she eventually left with her friends and I left. We live in the same country (not going to say where or where we were) but we live very far away from each other and i got her number and texted her the next day but we never met up and we both went back home and since then a week later I can’t stop thinking about her just something about her that is sticking in my head…. and I can meet girls very easily and I have never felt like this in my life I feel almost attached some how to her even though we only spent an hour together I feel lost………..

(46) Margie says:

I did not know what ‘Love at first sight was” until it happened to me. I did not even know it existed. Here goes my story, and I hope my experience help other people do the opposite of what I did.
I’m 32 years old, lesbian, and met my wife when I was 29. She is a wonderful woman, we haven been thu a lot, and when I married her there was no doubt in my mind she was the person I was going to be married the rest of my life because she has been the most amazing person I have ever met. I thought I was in love, and I thought I had everything with her. On the other hand, I consider myself to be very shy, introverted, hardly talk to other people or initiate conversation.
I was at work ( front desk hotel agent) and met this woman ( who happens to be on vacation). She stayed at the hotel for two weeks but i did not notice her at the beginning because we had a lot of guest and I’m always very busy. She started approaching me for information ( like other guests do), but something about her was different.. All of the sudden, crazy stuff, I was thinking about her all the time. My eyes started looking for her and waiting for her to come down to the lobby, having fantasies about her and feeling that strange sensation in the stomach. In that short period of time ( less than two weeks and her, being an absolut stranger), I started missing her like crazy and thinking of her, and having feelings for her. When it’s time for her to check out, she leaves me her email address and tells me to keep in touch. ( She lives in a different country). Two days later I write her with the excuse to tell her that I hope she had a great time at the hotel and hopefully she will be well rested to go back to work. She knew I was married because I told her when she was at the hotel. After two weeks of emailing each other ( nothing romantic ), I wrote her that ” I needed to stop writing her because even thought as I know this will sound crazy to you, given the fact that we’re complete strangers, I’m crazy about you and worst, I believe I’m falling in love with you.” I go out because i did not wanted to read her reply.. A week later, I read the email she writes me the same day I told her I was crazy about her and she told me that she felt the same way about me but she did not want to say anything because she wanted to get me to know better. At that point I just freak out ( reminds me of somebody that wrote something here and said she reconnected with this person in facebook after 26 years) and told my wife I had met somebody else and was falling in love for this person. Well, to make the long story short ,PEOPLE do not do what I did. I DID NOT LIVE MY LOVE AT FIRST SIGHT STORY. My wife was driving crazy everyday she said how i dare, after I said the vows to her just change like that. She said she was very disapointed that I made I commitment and that I was not sticking to it. I told my wife that I just love her the same way, that my love was very strong for her but that there were some things missing that I did not know were missing and that’s why I guess I connected with this woman. My wife told me she was my wife and that she deserved a chance to make us work….. Well, ffter almost 3 monnth of back and forth with my wife and could not break the vows I did to her, knowing that I was in love with this other woman and needed to stick to the commitment to see if this work. It has been almost a years and a half since I met this woman and obviusly I ruined it….. I think I did what was ‘right’ but I regret I should have follow my heart and let somebody else listen to my regrets. My advice for you is you need to live this love because Love at first sight is wonderful You feel young, you feel alive. This woman made me feel so wonderful. I hope I get to live this again!!

(47) Sandboxes says:

Yes, this has happened to me over and over again…love at first sight. The unfortunate part is that I’m the only one who is on the “love wavelength.” So it does help when you get to know him a bit and realize he’s just a jerk, same as all the others.

(48) Mickjayess says:

I believe we will all experience love at first sight. And many of us more than once. But will we act upon it, or chicken out? I for one, was in such a stressful situation, and confused at the time. It was freshman year in college, and it was stressful. I was pre-occupied with being able to stay afloat, awake, sane… Literally a day or two Freshman year, in the first class of the day, I noticed my one true love was answering a question of the professor, I sat right next to her, and there was that burst of “magic” I’ll call it so as to avoid a long comment. She never looked at me until days later, but I knew from the first moment she was the one! Was she gorgeous – NO. Scale of 1-10, probably a 6. I can only describe it as magic. What was so beautiful about her – everything!!! She was my 10, and my friends even wondered what it was about her, said she was cute and all, but asked me why was she the love of my life?? I couldn’t explain. Well, when she finally made eye contact with me, she was instantly… taken aback, and unfortunately it turned into something kinda tense, almost awkward. I think it overwhelmed her, and I was not quite able to come out of my shell to break her out of her pre-conceptions of love. We both knew it!!!! What a shame!!! I didn’t see her for a while after that first quarter, but whenever we saw each other, we would lock eyes. And she would give me that look of – when are you gonna do something? Unfortunately, I didn’t see her again often over the next year. But my senior year something happened (be ready for this story to be a total downer – tragedy supreme). I was about to go for it, at last, spontaneously. We had both been in a couple relationships in the meantime, but were single at the time. And what happens, a really hot girl starts hitting on me and I had a choice, and I didn’t follow my “love” instinct. I dated this other hot girl for several months. The final week of college, I’m sitting in the auditorium with my buddies, and they say, hey man, there she is (love of my life) and I look at her, and we literally locked eyes for 10 seconds!! She was 20 feet away, but there was no mistake. My buddies told me it was fate……………… I chickened out because of my own insecurities and lack of balls. Sure I was young, but not that young. Don’t ever, ever, ever hesitate when you see the one people. I am 38 now. Sad. You will meet the one, let your heart lead.

(49) WantAScorpio says:

I think I came here just to share my experience of that once in a lifetime love at first sight feeling, eventhough I have never been in a relationship with him. I will try to make it short.

We were 13 years old when our paths crossed. I liked many boys at that age, I lived at the beach so it was natural, and people found me oddly attractive, eventhough I never fully understood that, I cannot see that attractiveness they talk about in the mirror. In any case, when I saw HIM he literally took my breath away and eventhough I have had my true puppy love in high school, this guy is still to date the only one that has had that effect on me. he is a Scorpio male so yes, it was his eyes and yes it was his magnetism that attracted me. But mostly I was attracted to something beyond those electric blue eyes. he stared at me right back and it wasn’t long until we we took some long walks on the beach for 2 consecutive days and then on third day I decided I wanted to kiss him and I guess because he was just a 13-year-old boy with no relationship experience, he just nervously laughed everytime I came close to him. But there was no question that he liked me too, it was obvious. So I overreacted and was insulted so on third day I said to him I couldn’t see him anymore. He was sad but he didn’t ask any questions. Usually men do not question my decisions, I have a curse of looking too serious and almost angry agressive in my determination so noone questions my decisions.

Then 2 years after that I was going home for high school and I saw him outside his building with his friends, our eyes locked and I got hit again by the magnetic energy he oozed with. Later that day I said to my best friend who hanged around that area to say Hello to him from me. She said that when she said that, he answered “I wish she really did…”. I was confused thinking about that episode from before and thinking that he actually didn’t like me, so I thought why would he say this? But I didn’t go further into it because of a terrible domestic problems I was going through so he got shoved somewhere back in my mind.

So now when I am 30, one day my best friend from high school sent me a message on Facebook, saying she got this crazy SMS from a neighbour of hers who works in Venezuela where he almost begged her to say Hello to me from that Scorpio of mine and to send him an SMS back as soon as she gets some news from me. I was in a perfect position to get flustered by a memory of him again, single and wiser than before, ready for The One. So I said to say Hi back and I thought that would be it. But then 3 days later my Scorpio created a Facebook account and sent me a private message saying: “So, was it 16 years ago?”. I immediately went to his profile, saw the pictures, he is exactly the same as when I first saw him, except he is a true man now. Imagine the impact that had on me. But I also realized that he listed himself as in a relationship. Bummer:(. So I decided to pretend we are like friends now so I joked on one of his pictures; he is a professional diver and I commented the pic by saying if he would be so kind to dive out a shell with a pearl for me. He immediately sent me a private emssage saying “So you want a shell with a pearl, ha?” We joked then back an forth, it was borderline on flirting if not flirting itself. Then I asked him why did he contact me after so many years, he said it was just to see how I was doing and just as a friend. So yeah, bummer:(…What I have learned by now from my experience is that a girl should trust what a guy says, guys are really that simple in expressing themselves.

But I am still surprised that he remembers me after soooooo many years and we knew eachother only for 3 measly days, I guess I would be probably safe to say that I left the same impact on him as he did on me? It is so hard to shake him off because I am attracted to him beyond his eyes (which are SICK by the way, not even Leo DiCaprio has eyes like him, hehe;)))) and his magnetism, it is the idea that because I have the same intensity, we would match eachother perfectly.

I think about him constantly and we are still keeping contact, he even recently asked me how long am I staying in our hometown.

Not sure what will happen, we do live in different countries now so possibilities for a relationship is probably not so huge:(…But me wants him, oh so badly…;)

I was a believer until very recently. I met this man and omg he was awesome. Romantic eyes, sexy voice and very tall. Qualifications that I find appealing along with a personality that was or needed some grooming. Anyway, I was very honest about how I felt about this man. All he could tell me was he wasn’t a believer in love at first sight and didn’t understand how a woman could believe in it. Just today he asked how could I say I loved him and that shot me through the heart. I guess women do wear our hearts on our sleeves. What happened to me made me wonder if it truly exist. From now on honesty takes a back seat and continued hiding my feelings moves to the fore front

I never believed in love at first sight until about a two months ago, i met this guy and we were friends but We had this connection that just keep bringing us together some way.We decided to date and oh my there are no words to describe how intense, incredible and just flat out ahmazing everything feels. I feel i met the one for me in the time frame of 2 months. He’s everything to me and i him. He told me he was falling in love with me two days after we started dating and i felt/feel the same way.
I guess you have to be ready for anything. This feeling is one you want to share with the world but there are no words for it. I now believe in love at first sight and i revel in it. i hope everyone fels this at some point in there life.

(52) Bel says:

I never believed in love at first sight. I knew there was such a thing as chemistry and physical attraction, but I could not understand the concept of loving a complete stranger at first sight – until it happened to me.

I have to say it was instant. We took one look at each other and that was it for me. I knew I wanted to be with him but what was more interesting is I was certain that I already knew him.

That’s when I realized that I had met someone significant from a past life. So we started dating. It lasted three weeks until I realized that we didn’t want the same things. Go figure…timing.

So I ended it. I was fallling in love, well already in love with a man who was not in the same place I was. Been there before (not love at first sight) but it’s a painful place to be.

Five months later I still cannot stop thinking about him. He won’t talk to me at all so I’ve decided to let go. But I know I did the right thing because if it were love at first sight for him, he would try to work it out.

Funny how these things work. All I can say is that I am grateful for the experience and I wish him well. Sometimes maybe the love at first sight is one sided.

(53) Christine B. says:

I’ve been married for 15 years, he’s been married for 20 yrs. Not to each other. I looked across the room, saw him, and felt that for the first time ever, there was someone closer to me than my husband. I just knew that with him was where I belonged. I was being called home. It wasn’t about power or money or statue. Then he came over, we locked eyes and I thought: I am going to marry him. My very next thought was that I would never be happy again. It’s been 2 years and so far, it’s proven true. I will never leave my husband, but I think of him constantly and probably will for a long time. This is a very difficult situation.

No I believe in lust at first sight! Love is such a strong word. And if you are going to use it, make sure you know what it means. Cause it hurts to hear and know that you don’t mean it.

(55) brea says:

No I don’t belive in love at first sight. Yes its true there are some males that I find attractive at first sight, but to love someone you have to know them. Lets say that you sit next to a very attractive male (or female) in class but you hardly even know his/her name. That isnt love, just attraction. I have actually met people who mistake passion and lust for love. Lust and love hardly keep the same company, and even then not for long. My advice. Get to know them. Maybe they are the love of your life or maybe they turn out to be the worst people you have ever met. The saying “Don’t judge a book by its cover” has some truth here.

lust….yes! but love at first sight?……no. I’m sorry but there is just no way you can love someone by glancing at them. i need the connection to a person to love. I agree. Love is too much of a strong word.

(57) Carla says:

About a year ago I met I man whom I got attracted to instantly. We live in different countries and he was in my country on a short assignment. At the time I was 50 and falling in love was the last thing on my mind. I hadn’t been in a serious position for about 7 years. He’d brought a parcel for me from a friend. I talked to him on the phone 3 times without developing any interest. When I finally met him, I was impatiently waiting at the hotel reception when I heard someone ask me in quiet whether my name was Carla. I looked up and saw a very attractive man and I swooned. I was immediately attracted to him and found it difficult to chat. He invited me to the country he lives, urging me to go soon and that he would show me around. I told him I would go but haven’t been able to go up to now. Unfortunately, he’s never communicated since then. I still long for him and wish we could get together. Any suggestions about what I should do. At 51 I have very little confidence in myself. He’s a few years younger than me.

For all these people googling was just happened to them.. and trying to find some sort of an explanation or confirmation, like I am right now. Well. I never believed in it either. And I still don’t know if one should call it love.. Too much of a cynic, I guess… But IT happened to me 3 weeks ago, and it was a mind blowing, spiritual, terrifying, and overwhelming experience. Caught me of guard, was not searching for it and I have not acted upon it -and will probably not any time soon. Was not lust, although he is ridiculously handsome, but drowned in his eyes, almost fainted and just felt that my soul was lifted from my body, that I looked into a mirror, and saw his soul reflected in mine. As if I had known him for 200 years. Don’t ask me why but I just know that he will play some part in my life in the future. It changed my outlook on love, life and myself. An epiphany that left me decided that I need to change some things … now! And if this is all I shall gain from it, I am a better person for it and eternally grateful. It sounds like a cliche, but it was like he was sent by some invisible force. And I honestly believe it will never happen to me again.

(59) Mickjayess says:

It’s me again. I want to believe in love at first sight so much!!! Those first few encounters can almost solidify it. But as a cynic, we usually lose that lust feeling fairly quickly. I had two girlfriends in the past that I had an instant attraction for, and our love life was a perfect 10, literally for a year. I never lost the butterfly feeling every time I was with each girl. One was when I was 20, the other when I was 23. The relationships went sour, but the physical attraction didn’t. I was a moron. I broke up with the first girl 8 times, because she would never confide in me, or express her true self. I came to find out that she was just immature at the time, and afraid maybe that I wouldn’t love her true self. Heck, I was immature too. And the next girl, even more physical attraction – but how do you differentiate between an attraction level of 10 and another 10? Nuances I suppose. Either way, I think my body gave out because of the constant intensity of lust and hormones that went on and on for so long. With the second girl, I think her IQ was like 150, and she was intimidating and a bit too flirtatious for my taste. She ended that relationship – said she didn’t like dating jealous guys. But to this day, I still compare all relationships to these girls. I’ve not found a woman who sparks my attraction nearly as much. Maybe it’s because I’m older? Am I doomed never to feel such passion ever again? If so, then “Away with you bitter and evil hope of true love.” I’ll just continue pursuing a woman who is a perfect soul-mate without the passion!!!??? Bahh Humbug. Need help.

I believe in it it has been about 5 years and I still can not shake the feeling for this one particular girl, even thought i am in love with my current girlfriend. It feels too real and too vivid even in my thoughts of her. It hurts way more then its suppose to even when I barely knew her.

yes I do believe in it
when I first met my beloved 3 years ago I felt something strange inside me and I’ve loved her since that time.
although we rarely meet but my love grows day after day,and I believe she’s the one.I say to myself that she’s my everything,happiness,peace,live,everything.
I’m eager to kiss his hand as I’m her man.

(62) JS says:

I met a woman in the workplace, and she stood out to me. I remember the first time that I saw her. The memory of that moment is something that burned into my mind like a still photograph.

She changed my life, because I grew to admire her ideals and values. We had conversations from time to time, and those conversations challenged and inspired me.

At a point, I realized that I loved her; and it wasn’t just a matter of infatuation. It was something completely different. I wanted to devote my life to her unconditionally.

After a year or so we got different jobs, and I told myself that I had to let my feelings for her go. I didn’t think that any more could come of it, and assumed that I would never see her again. I considered that matter closed for a long time.

Nevertheless, I thought of her every day for three years; and the mere memory of her somehow inspired me to be a better person. Then, rather unexpectedly, we made contact with each other again after all that time.

I don’t know if “love at first sight” is quite the right way to describe it, but I do know that there is some kind of love that goes beyond the usual dating metrics, transcends the typical definition of love, and touches the soul in a purer, more genuine way.

That kind of love endures the test of time, and like the pyramids, is wondrous.

(63) alpha says:

love at the first sight has been and will always be there no matter what our societies or cultures may dictate.

In my highschool time I was more than a womanizer! I could do anything to draw attention to the woman I want. It was all about being recognized as the best in that school. Until one day in unexpected situation while a was visiting a friend. It was one evening at a Coppellia” Coppelia” is a place for ice cream in latin. I saw a girl across the line and my heart beat raises so quickly that I had to leave the line. I ignored the signal at the first because the girl my eyes met with was not one of the type of girl that I would normally approach. then I sat there for few minutes and there is the girl again I felt like my heart was coming out from my mouse from the way it was beating. I could not resist the girl as she approached me and extended her hand I can not remember what did I do. The only thing I can recall was like my blood boiling and I felt a blackout for some seconds by the time I opened my eyes she was holding my hands and gazing at my eyes. I technically tried to resist whatever I was feeling at the moment being the guy I thought I was; I could not believe this was happening to me. with all beautifull girls I have been with no one could match the feeling of happiness that girl brought to my life until I left her.

I eventually managed to escaped but I could not hide from what I felt when I met her. I had three kids with a chosen woman, but very unhappy.

In conclusion, love at the first sight it is not about your made up list of expectations but the natural instinct or energy that live within you.

Personally I would have said no i dont believe,
But recently I met a wonderful guy and something inside off me told me he is the one
I’ve had previous relationships so can be quite sceptical, But even though I have only just got to know him I can honestly say it was love at first sight, He ,himself told me this morning that he has fallen for me,
Theres just something more about the way the holds me and looks at me. So Yes I do believe in love at first sight..

I believe in love at first sight due to my own experience with it. i saw this doctor when i was doing work experience at a local hospital. i loved him the minute i saw him. I never spoke to him while i was working there, and when i left it teared me apart. I kept loving him still. I saw him months after and it was the same feeling. it so happened that i got sick and was hospitalized and destiny had its plan cuz he was the doctor that treated me. one day he came to give me an injection and i kinda cried cuz it hurt. he rubbed my hand and apologized and he had this look in his eyes and i knew he felt the same way i felt. i was discharged and i still didnt let him know how i felt. he found out where i worked and came to look for me one day. he said it was a medical visit and he was talking to me about my health but i knew deep dwn that wasnt the reason for his visit. anyway before he left he gave me his number and told me to call if i wasnt feeling well. i had the number for weeks and one day i finally texted him and now we r together, so yes!!! i believe in love at first sight

(66) YoungLove says:

Yes, it is real. I am young but I have expirenced it.. I know it. Well first lets start out with ‘guy one’. I met him in Kindergarten and we have been best friends since. But I always liked him more then a friend… I loved him. I think he felt the same. I dreamed about him every single night. January 19 2011 was the day ‘guy two’ came into my life. He is a grade younger then me but he is very smart so he moved into my Pre-Algebra class. The teacher called on me to answer a question, and I did. ‘Guy two’ turned around to see who I was and.. BAM! Our eyes met, and I fell in love. I didnt even know his name, or anything about him at that. But yet I was willing to throw myself infront of a bus for him. Every time I see him my heart skips a beat, my face gets red, and I stop breathing when I look into his eyes. I stopped that whole love thing with ‘guy one’ and now the only guy I see, or think about is ‘guy two’. I imagine him with me when he is not and I cant get that amazing smile out of my mind. Yes it was love at first sight, and I wont let anyone prove me wrong. Anyways that night I stopped dreaming about ‘guy one’ I started dreaming about ‘guy two’. I now know ‘guy two’ a little better. His name, what makes him laugh, or smile, even blush. I also know he is a complete dork! But I love him anyways. I cant explane this feeling, but lets just say if he died now I would be next. My heart hurts when I am not with him. I never felt this before. It is love and I need to tell him!

(67) James-in-MS says:

It is 100% real and it was mutual!

In fall of 2006, this happened to me. I was married and so was she (I found out later). I was sitting in my SUV in a bank parking lot and I was on the phone. I turned and saw a woman sitting in her white SUV next to me.

We both immediately locked eyes and recognized each other from some other time and place. It was like we both looked at each other, smiled and said, “Hey, love. There you are! I have been waiting for you all of my life? Where have you been?”

Time froze, we smiled and were filled with joy and happiness. I felt the warmth, joy and love from heaven shining down on us. I recognize her from dreams that I have had since I was a child. The experience really confirmed my belief in God and the after life. I was never a super religious person until that happened. It changed my life forever.

Four or so years later, I still think of her and think about what could have been. I will always love her and she will always love me. We know that. I know that a life together would have been amazing, happy and full of love. As life is supposed to be.

I ended up divorcing shortly there after. I saw her the other day for the first time in 4 years and she is still with her husband. I respect that very much and would never do anything to interfere with their marriage.

I am glad to have experienced unconditional love at least this one time in my life.

All is good M!

But I miss ya a lot. Wish we could have talked once to understand this better but I understand what would come of that.

Miss ya, love you always M

Well yeah, i believe in love at first sight, its a strong feeling, i think you dodge it a few times when you keep seeing the person, because you know how these things are, we wanna fight it and find it hard to believe but once you get together its such a warm feeling, nonetheless a relationship is a relationship, there still has to be some level of input everyday from both parties if you wanna explore newer and deeper levels of love, and believe I am not talkig about sex. Even after a year its like your seeing him for the first time everyday, when you smile your heart smiles with you and you still get butterflies in your tummy…

(69) Cam says:

I never believed in this sort of stuff untill it happened to me, much like the previous comments.

This previous weekend I took a trip with my friends to Disneyland, after half a day of fun on rides and such, we decided to take our fun over to disneyland from California Adventure. We immediatly headed over towards the indiana jones ride, which all of my friends love, but I honestly can’t stand.

The line had a 75 minute wait time, and I wasn’t thrilled, as My ipod died hours prior. Afte rabout 50 minutes of waiting, I turned and caught Glance with with this girl three rows away from me. The second our eyes met, I felt something I’d never felt before. I got Cold chills, goosebumps, and According to my friends, i was Completely void of skin color. Judging by the way this girl looked, she was experiancing something odd as well. After about 2 minutes of just staring at eachother, our part of the line moved inside the ride’s building. we continued down towards the ride, and I constantly looked back to find her again. Right as I got onto the Ride, and the buckles locked in, I spotted her. once again we locked eyes, my ride started moving forward, we both smiled intensely.

March 29, 2011 at 12:37 pm
(70) cam says:

I got of the ride, and walked to the entrance with my buddies, I started walking with them to another part of the park, then came to the conclusion that I should have waited for her. I told my buddies I needed to do something, and dead sprinted through the hundreds of people back towards the ride. As I got there, I saw her turning a corner towards another part of the park, I ran after her, but after searching couldn’t find her. I called my friends, and told them I’d meet them at the room later that night. I spent the rest of the night (7pm-11:30pm) searching through the park for this girl, all to no success.

I’ve since been in an extremely odd mood, like a piece of me is missing. Chances are I will never see this girl again, I don’t know her name, or were she’s from, but strangely, I love her…the one… the one that got away.

Like nothing else mattered every where I go I always think about him. And I see him from time to time but we have never spoken. It’s been 2 years since I experienced this and i know it’s love at first sight because if it wasn’t I would have already just 4got about himon toabout him but I just can’t……

I think what everyone is describing is meeting a person who you know will affect your life profoundly. Ive never had this feeling with a guy before, but I have had it a couple of time meeting friends. I can’t say that I have kept in touch with all of these friends, but they have made me who I am today. Maybe this feeling is not love at first sight, but something inside of us recognizing an important person who will take us down an important path.

This is all VERY interesting! A few months ago I conduced an online survey about this very topic! Soulmates and Love at first sight (for a graduate school course). It was only quantitative and my results were very interesting about who does and who does not believe. I have since created a SECOND survey including qualitative questions to try to understand more about why people believe and do not believe. I have finished most of my analyses but if any of you are interested in sharing your stories please take my survey!

(77) m.agustin says:

I know that love at first sight exists; it happened to me the summer of 1975. I was 17. I fell in love with a girl I had never met before. I saw her in the line next to mine on our way to a concession stand at a Drive-In Theater. I tried talking to her but she wouldn’t give me the time of day. I “chased” her until she allowed me one date. We were boyfriend/girlfriend for a year before she broke up with me. We dated others but eventually she came back to me. We married in 1977 and we will celebrate our 35th anniversary in March of 2012. It was not love at first sight for her but once she fell in love with me she never let go. I’ve never loved anyone like I have my wife. I know what it is to love my family and my friends but the love I have for my wife is not of this world. I cannot duplicate, replicate, nor simulate how I feel for her with anyone else. My wife and I have talked about our relationship and we are amazed that we can be so right for each other after all these years; we have our theories about how this can be and we have theories about what soulmates are but above all, we just believe that we both listened to our hearts and followed the signs when we were supposed to . . .

January 2, 2012 at 7:17 pm
(78) Dave 400 says:

Love at first sight appears to have more to do with precognition — a premonition of a romance to come. Case in point: I first spotted this girl “among a group of people” from about “200 yards away” and felt something was up regarding her. I never saw her face properly. I didn’t have lusty feelings for her (at the time, but much later did) — this rules out attraction theories. There was no sign of her noticing me. I had no belief in premonitions at the time. Later, due to ridiculously super-unlikely events, we met and got together, and had mutual feelings for each other from the beginning. I don’t know about actual “love at first site,” however, I now I believe that “love at first sight” is more of a sense of things to come and a drive to get to know the person.

Love at first sight is as real as it gets. For instance I work part time at local candy store….in walked a gentlemen and I never wanted him out of sight ever again. Now here I am with a beautiful family I never thoght id have.

When I was younger I never believe in love at first site, I always thought it could never be true. That was until I meat my boyfriend now. A friend got us together and the second I laid my eyes on him my heart was his. Some may say it is just the “fu-fu stage” but one knows when they are in love. He is in the military, Ive always wanted a military man until now. He could leave any second of the day and that is the part that scares me the most.

When I was younger I never believe in love at first site.

I believed all of this until now, until I meat my boyfriend. A friend introduced us, and the moment i laid my eyes on him my heart was his. Now of days I cannot stop smiling or thinking about him. Some may say this is the “fu-fu stage” in our relationship, but one knows when they are in love and I could not be anymore head-of-heels in love with him.

(82) Michelle says:

In HS I met a love that should of lasted forever. My parents swore he was no good. So,;

I saw my first husband across from the bar. Love, desperate is what I felt. Two children and 15 years the marriage ended. I was honest I knew I just wanted kids with him. Handsome, I wanted to settle down.

Marriage number two ended with the man robbing me blind. I fell in love With someone I didn’t know, and was lost himself.

Emotionally drained convinced god only knows what’s on the agenda. Months later;

I’m taking my daughter to the train station to dropp her off. As we are waiting to load train. There is of course a man standing there with his children. I ended up starring at his perfect body, then seen his face. I was in love. Felt like I was in a fog.

My daughter and I were moved from this lovely view down to another part of the train. I seen my daughter off and knew I had to go back towards that dream. I kept telling myself don’t trip.
I got down to my car, got in my car and felt like a child in love.

I was with my 18 year old daughter. I told my daughter. As I was telling my daughter; my daughter says; ” you mean him!!!!” he made his way looking for me over the rail. It was like a movie. I felt like my prince was looking for me. Silly as it may seem.

He eventually made his way down to me and we both could not see straight, nor talk. We fumbled to exchange business cards.

This person is in the military. We have emailed a few times. He warned me we wouldn’t get to meet again for 5 months.

Hopelessly in love.

I am searching this topic as most seem to be here because we have experienced love at first sight and wonder – is this real. Found a guy on a dating site – first look at his profile – my heart skipped a beat. He is not my usual type so I felt it and wondered. We communicated and I found out he is 2 hours away – I stopped and backed away. Two weeks later I was talking to him again but choked before the meet. Again – two weeks later -I was back chatting with him. We have loads in common – beyond the normal and I just could not let go of him. We met a few days ago and it has been heaven for both of us. It was instant connection once we were able to physically meet and be in each other’s presence. I cannot decribe the moment we saw each other on my front porch – it is burned in my memory how he looked at me and how it felt. It is odd too because he is not normaly the type of guy I go for – but it is perfect. I know we want to say “i love you” to each other but hold back because logically you wonder – how could this be love so quick, so easily and felt so deeply and calmly. How awesome – I feel like the luckiest girl alive! :)

I’m back a third time. And yes, I still believe in love at first sight. So there’s another girl that I’ve been attracted to for 3 years and we see each other from time to time (we work in the same building – there’s over 2000 employees there).

6 weeks ago I found out she was single So I sent her a FB msg just saying hello (we became FB friends after my msg). She responded positively and when we started texting more an more over the next few weeks, I could tell she’d been interested in me for some time. She knew all sorts of things about me that surprised me. Soon our texting was magical and we went for coffee, which was great.

February 17, 2012 at 11:57 pm
(86) mickjayess says:

We hit it off, go out and kiss for about 5 minutes and it’s magical.

We talk on phone every night.

Several days later, she seems off. I ask what’s up, nothing. Finally I ask if we are going to date more. The next day she texts – better off as friends.

It’s been a week and I’m more heartbroken than I’ve ever been over a girl in my whole life. I have to pinch myself and say “dude, grow a pair”. Why was I so in love with her more than any other in my life??? And I lost her. But I agree ’tis better to have loved and lost…

Well, I am 17 years old and until valentines day of this year I did not even believe in love, but I saw this guy in Wal-Mart he was walking really fast and I initially thought he was someone else. I just felt something. Like a feeling like I need to know this person. It was different for me because I see cute boys all the time at stores, so why do I feel an emotional attachment to someone I know absolutely nothing about. So seven days went by I saw the guy again in the mall. He probably thought I was insane or stalking him are something. I first saw him in a show store when I was lookIng for prom shoes. I knew it was him by the way I felt and his pretty big pink lips and dreads and he had a cap on. Anyways, he was with a guy and a girl (I am painfully shy and I was with my parents so obviously I did not approach him). I was standing like at the little rest place in the center of the mall waiting for dad with my mom and sis. It was taking a while for my dad to get there so we decided to go to game stop. When we came out, I saw him walking toward his whoever that guy was to him and I started to walk to him but I caugh myself and forced myself to stop looking at him cause he was looking at me. So after this catastrophe,my family and I went to eat at this place and he was came there to. I had three opportunities to get his name, you know, and I blew it. I just wanted to be his friend. All I wanted to do is get to know him and I did not have enough balls to ask what his name was. If I had his I could have just stalked him on Facebook or something but no. I just had to be shy. Do anybody think he felt anything when he saw me? Probably not. Since this happen I cannot say that I fully believe in live but I do think the whole love at first sight thing exist. Life sucks but I think he live at least in a 600 mile radius for me. I would say that he was in his late teens or early twenties. Based on the length of his dreads and his willingness to go places with his parents.

Okay I am back I went over my characters now I have to type a second one. Sorry for all the typos. I am trying to do this off my iPod with nails on. I know people say that this is a bunch of bs. I really cannot say that I blame them. I feel real insane. Like for real. I not talking about talking to someone a few couple I times and being like bam I want this person. I am talking about just seeing someone and wanting to stalk them just to get to know them to ask them to be your friend. It is really scary to me for real. I guess it is because I do not understand it.

I believe but not at first physical sight but when our souls and hearts first connect with each other for the first time we fall in love. It doesn’t have to take days, weeks or months. Seeing a person, liking what you see when you look into their eyes. Talking, connecting, laughing, shairing and eventually falling in love. It could happen in an instant.
I met a guy and I joked with him for a couple of months but never thought I would end up in a relationship with him because I was already dating someone who I thought I would eventually marry. On Christmas I gave this guy a holiday hug and he came back to me and said that he so needed that hug because he was not dating anyone and he was alone for the holidays.
I was not physically attracted to this guy because like I said I was already in a relationship but it was very, very rocky. I would see this guy everyday in passing and say something funny and he would too.
One day after being frustrated from my present relationship at that time, I looked up and I said a prayer. Lord I don’t want to be in this relationship anymore and I am very unhappy. I want someone who I don’t have to struggle to be with. Lord, send me my soul mate. I then saw this guy I joke with and he was different, I saw him in a new way. I believe at this time our souls connected. I was able to drop the looser and tell this new guy that I liked him and that I was in a transition but I would love to get to know him. He said that he was ready for me and we are now in love.

I believe in love at first sight because it happened to me. I was walking when I saw her and her friends on the first day of school. I couldn’t stop thinking about her all day. Ever since then, I can’t look at her without my heart stopping and it get’s harder to breath. I don’t think I could have the guts to do something about it though. I’m certain from the moment I saw her though, It was love at first sight.

I agree with Raka… Love is definitely natural and pure, and most love is formed from forced or manipulated interractions based on our selfish needs. I was never sure that I believed in Love at first sight, but I know now that it can happen. People take the statement love at first sight to mean literally fall in love when seeing a person. Well, I don’t know if that is true, but for me its when you connect initially, meaning, when you first meet someone and see them you and instantly have a connection that you never have felt before. This desire/urge to know more about them and see them and spend time with them makes this new friendship an urgency. I am currently experiencing my urgency. We met 3 weeks ago and have talked every day and we have been together every weekend since and We live in different cities. I know that God has put him in my life and everything about it feels right. I have had previous relationships that now seem forced. I feel very comfortable and everything is easy with my new friend. Love at first sight really just means the best darn connection you every had on a first encounter. What you do with it determines the outcome.

Wow something amazing happened when our yes met for the first time recently. Time stood still even sound i stopped breathing and it caused me to step back . Was something i never had experienced, sadly some douche was already trying to get her number so i let it b. but i know she knew what happened to us was breath taking. It wasn’t a good time for us to just chat since we had jury duty. I can see her face when i close my eyes. I wish i could have done more because im already regretting it. Thats my story call it what u want to

(96) J C says:

Yes, it does happen. It has never happened to me, but for my girlfriend, yes. She never believed in love at first sight , until she met me. We met at a workout facility, where she was a trainer and I was a member. I walked in with a friend of mine, and we were interested in signing up for the club. She was there and told us the general information and gave us a quick tour. When we returned a week and a half later to sign up and started the program, I didn’t think much of her as more than someone I would like to befriend. She worked two jobs, lived alone, and didn’t seem like she was interested in any relationship. Until she asked me out a few weeks later after talking to me while I was doing the circuit. She told me that when I first came in “something clicked” and that I had her full attention. She wanted to pursue me, and couldn’t stop thinking about me. What is ironic is that she has always been chased in her life, but in this case, she had to chase me! She told me that she was “watching” and “waiting” for a sign that she could ask me out.

That was almost three months ago, and I’m glad I said yes to her initial date. She is actually who I have been searching for all of my life, and has almost everything I need in a partner. It didn’t take long for me to fall in love with her. In exactly 16 days we will be living together, and will continue to do so for the rest of our lives.

i really do feel like i am in a situation right now and have been for almost 3 months that i let THE ONE get away :( we locked eyes and felt something but did not speak and i left without even getting his name or number i keep doubting myself that i will never see him again and i keep trying to move on but i cant this hasnt ever happened to me ever before and i know it was something special that i probably wont ever have with anyone else i dont know when ill ever get over this and it really makes me just want to hope that its because ill have a story to tell if we ever do meet again and that life does have a plan for me but i highly doubt it and i believe that things just happen in life and thats the end of it im so sad i cant get over this non existing relationship each day feels worse and worse i keep wishing that this world is a small enough place fo us to meet again and yes i do think that it was love at first sight especially if i feel hurt about not being with him does anyone believe that if its meant to be we will meet again?

I do believe, because myself have experienced it….. I was in gym class and this guy walked in but I couldn’t really see him just from far away but I got this feelin as soon as I saw him and as I later began to fall more for him as time went by even more and it just got stronger, I do admit he wasn’t very cute at the time but he later got taller and thinner and he began to look well, I’ve loved him for almost four years now…..I want to move on….

I never thought I could believe in love at first sight! But I had stopped in to pick up lunch for my son, it was a taco bell! I opened the door and as soon as I looked up we locked eyes! I couldn’t stop looking at his eyes! I dunno if he had felt the same way!!! But when he handed me the receipt his hands were shaking and as I was waiting for my food he couldn’t take his eyes off me!!! I d catch him staring! As I picked up my food from him he begin to tell me he over sees the taco bell in my neighborhood! But he didnt ask for my number, i didnt understand!!! Was i the only one feeling it??? For all I know he could have been married with kids! But after that I couldn’t stop thinking about him! And I don’t know what to do!!!

(101) Hope says:

Do I believe in love at first sight?
No. but what I do believe in is lust at first sight, or
finding someone attractive/ infatuated.
I think it takes time to actually fall in love. people often get lust, and love confused or mixed up. just recently I went to the grocery store, and there was this guy that I found attractive, and sure enough I was smiling on the way home, just thinking about him, but I know for certain I wasn’t in love, but rather attracted to his looks. and that to me is obviously the first step in finding a person, one whom you’d like to date and so on so forth. whether we like to admit it or not, attraction plays a huge role in eventually “falling in love”, sure maybe after the first, or couple dates, you find to like the person because of their qualities and similar interests, but that doesn’t necessarily mean “Love at first sight”, perhaps more of “Lust at first sight”. Interpersonal attraction leads to love. for an example: a male peacock will flaunt his colourful feathers, in hope of impressing and attracting a potential partner(“Pea-cocking”). I personally haven’t been in love, being only 17 years of age, and having no interest in dating, yet. my views on what love is, comes from being the last child of 6, and having been able to observe the relationships of my older siblings. I can look at what works and what doesn’t. and because of that I think I will be able to make wise choices in my relationships. maybe I’m naive or pessimistic about love, or because I haven’t experienced it yet, but maybe in the years to come I might just find that I love someone, and contribute a comment to this site.

(102) caroline says:

I never really thought about love at first sight before. sure i thought it could possibly exist but i wasn’t completely sure. now i know it’s real. not always mutual, but 100% real. i was at my at-the-time boyfriend’s house, sitting, talking with him. then in walks three more people (i was already friends with one of these individuals, but never met the other two before). i glance up to see who’s there and lock eyes with this one guy for the first time. i personally wouldn’t call it “love at first sight”. i just felt like i recgonized his soul (from a past life or something). as we started talking that night, i kept thinking to myself “who the fuck is this guy and where has he been my whole life??” …after we met, i hung out with him a couple of times but only in groups of people. although i was still with that other guy, every time i conversed with this guy i felt a weird connection. we didn’t really talk or see each other for a few months, probably because i was dating the other guy (who turned out to be a total asshole and still married…..). but after we were over, he started talking to me again. one night when he was wasted, he texts me something like this..

(103) caroline (continued..) says:

.”i think you’re so smart, i love talking to you, you remind me that i’m not alone in this world. please don’t take this the wrong way but the moment we made eye contact i knew i loved you. whoever put us on this earth showed me that one”. i couldn’t help but grin like an idiot when i read that. now him and i have hung out only a handful of times, but when i’m with him i feel so at peace, happy, safe, myself. even though i just met him recently, it feels like i’ve known him forever, and can trust him with anything. i don’t even think about wanting to kiss him, (ok, maybe i sometimes i do, heh). i just want to be his best friend. i’ve never felt this way about anyone before. previous relationships feel like they were forced, unnatural. but when i’m with him everything feels right. he crosses my mind multiple times a day, and he’s the sunshine in all of my day-dreams. i think i may be falling in love…..

in 1973 I was in a nightclub with a friend and his girlfriend, that meant pretty much on my own. I tried to dance with a few girls but they were mostly in pairs so I was getting nowhere, stopped and leaned back against a support pillar. I was almost immediately pushed off it by a young woman and I asked her to dance. We danced a while, then stopped and began to talk. Within 24 hours of meeting her I wanted to be with her for the rest of my life. We are still happily together almost 39 years later with two children and two grandchildren. She is the love of my life.

(105) bosy says:

its definitely real…..love at first sight for me is real but i think two of you must lock the same eyes at the same time….I experienced it when i was in college i was a transfer student from other school, at that time i was little bit curious about my surroundings and a girl in front of me suddenly appears and actually smiles gradually but that moment i really don’t care about people even though they’re pretty because Im a snob type of guy…but a sudden curiosity hits my head that telling me oh shes pretty…but that moment i don’t know that this girl is the one my friend told me about, that she was prettiest girl in their class.. but i don’t really listen to him( my friend) that time….. and then one day i was walking for my next class and a sudden force of gravity turn my head to look at my back i don’t know why i look back and then i saw her staring at me and shows a slow motion smile with a lightning stare at my eyes for i think 2 seconds and even though i don’t smile to any person i meet, surprisingly i smile and stare her for at least two seconds and turn my head forward and when i look back i saw her flipping her hair…and then i continued walking …at that time all i remember was that feeling of electricity flows outside of me connecting to her unexpectedly with just one sight and i knew that one person saw that even if your in a crowded place you will feel like your the only person at that time….and after that or a week shes on my head and until now 4 years later i still care for her i knew she feels the same way too…but where to shy to open up until now..:((

YES!! I believe in love @ 1st sight. I met my huaband on a vacation to visit family. I bumped into him @ a local store not knowing my brother knew him. Iwas not LOOKING for anyone but felt connected. I lived in CA & he lived in KS. I had 5 days from thw day I met him of my vacation. I kneq I was crazy about him. The day.I was sheduled to leave, he asked me when I would be back. I said 6 months. We visited, I left. The next day we texted 1,250 miles apart. We talked, texted & 10 days later I was back with him. We were in shock/denial that this was for real so we dated & lived together almost 3 years before he roposed at Christmas to get married the following July. YES!!!!!There is love @ 1st sight. I believe it’s a vibe…not a “look”…

I didnt believe in it either until today. just chance meeting, i was walking home from work and she needed directions, so she ended up giving me a ride home cause where she needed to go was pretty close by. All i got was her name and know where she works, after she dropped me off i wished i had asked her out, and find myself unable to stop thinking about her. I have a couple of friends that work where she does and they are looking out for me. Hopefully i can get in contact with her again and see what happens.

(109) Chris says:

I am so glad I found this website. I’ve been in a relationship now for 3 years and although I love my girlfriend, I’ve always felt like my relationship was missing something. Then the other day I had an appointment to see a massage therapist. I’ve never in my life gone for a massage and never really wanted one but had recently decided I would try one because my girlfriend said I should. So I’m in the lobby answering some questions That the receptionist had and this girl comes out and introduces herself. I suddenly felt something that I had never felt before. I wasn’t nervous at all, wich is unusual for me because I’m a really shy guy. I felt comfortable around her like i have known her for a long time and thought that she was the most beautiful person I’ve ever met both physically and her personality. She seemed shy with me, almost as if she was feeling something similar and she wanted to talk a lot wich I didn’t think is normal for a massage appointment. Anyways I immediately made another appointment for two weeks later. Throughout those two weeks I couldn’t stop thinking about her and was asking myself what’s going on with me? Then i started to think maybe it was just a strange crush and I should stop thinking about her and was almost feeling guilty because I’m in a relationship. I did however go to the next appointment and I’m glad I did because it happened all over again. I fell madly in love again almost instantly. We talked a lot again and just seemed to have a serious connection. I however didn’t have the balls to ask her out mostly because I have a girlfriend but I have an overwhelming feeling that I need to see her again and I can’t stop thinking about her. It’s almost creeping me out. Never felt like this before, almost like I’ve met my match and I don’t even know if the feelings are mutual and it’s killing me. I need to know. What should I do? Is this crazy talk or a legit feeling that I need to act on?

(112) abi says:

I believe it, people, it is called kindred souls! It happened to me in the worst of situations… my brother was at the hospital, dying. He had just coded and the scene was absolute chaos. Doctors, nurses charged my brother’s room to help him as my family stood crowded outside the door bawling our eyes out. They were able to get his pulse back, and as everyone was filing out of the room, I locked eyes with one doctor in particular and it was like everything was in slow motion and there was this glowing light around him. Dating and checking out men was the farthest thing from my mind at the moment because my brother was dying and I had just broken up with a boyfriend of five years the same week. In the days following, that doctor kept coming by to check up on me to see if I was doing ok although he wasn’t even assigned to my brother’s team, he was just passing by when he heard the code alert. It’s been months since my brother passed, but I still keep in contact with this doctor. Sometimes we will get too busy with our hectic schedules and lose touch, but he has never failed to pop up again in my life now and then. I am hopeful that things will continue to progress. There is definitely an inexplicable connection between us.

(114) google2support says:

Yes Love at First Sight is TRUE ! . I have encountered so many true stories that proved that love at first sight really exist but the ratio would be 1 out of 100 .

The main reason for that is they get extremely attracted to that person physically and emotionally. There are millions of people in this world and i believe that there is one out there that experienced Love at first sight , ( including my friend who is now happily married with his wife for 5 years) .

There are so many unexpected things that happened or are happening in this world that sometimes we can not believe due to we have not experienced it but Yes Love at first sight exists.

but i need to emphasis that 90% of it comes from attraction and there is a thin line between physical attraction and sexual attraction .

So My advice is once you have experienced this Love at first sight thing you need to control yourself and try to know that person deeply and then if he or she deserves it then let your love flow over him. Take care

I think a lot of you GUYS are confusing lust with love. You see a beautiful girl, maybe she locks eyes with you for a moment, and you think you’re in love. It happens, girls have that ability to do that to a man. I mean what guy wouldn’t love a pretty face locking eyes with them? Is it love at first sight? Hardly.

(116) Amber says:

I for one am hesitant to say that I love this dude I just met because it freaks me out, and I dont really understand how that could even be possible, but I am no fool to say that there isn’t something between us, so I would say I do believe it in.

Starts out kind of silly. Got drunk with my friend and we ended up hanging out with these guys we met. Next morning I wake up with no memory of them. My friend is telling me that I was with one of them the entire night, and how sweet and cute he was. I think nothing of it because i frankly do not care.

So turns out I get this guys number. That morning he tells me how glad he is that he met me. I think nothing of it. Two days later we go out again, I am not drunk this time. This guy is calling me, wanting to meet up with me. I tell him where we are to be nice. I don’t care at all if he comes or not. Why would I? So we are in this bar and my friend sees him walk in. She goes to get him. When she comes back I look at the man who is following her. He sees me and smiles a huge smile. This feeling I feel next is something I have never felt before and it frightens me. I have had many boyfriends. Never did they make my heart feel as content as this man just has simply by looking at me. I don’t understand it, so I don’t dwell on it, but I cannot help it when i feel myself smile as largely and happily as he is. I immediately feel as though I know him as well as I know any other person I have known for years. There is a feeling in my chest that is warm and content. I throw my arms around him and we hug each other.

I never believed until i experienced it myself. Let me start off by saying that I’m a very cynical person, and a rational one at that. I just started a new job and it was my second day, but one day that I’ll never forget for as long as i live. I met one of my managers and after we introduced our eyes just connected. The moment felt like an eternity, warmth took over my body and collected at my head, i felt like my brain was gonna explode. Time stood still, and it felt like me and her were the only two people in the crowded room. I won’t go into any more details beside the fact i kind of messed it up. Instead of following my heart i listened to my head, now i’m trying to get her back. If you feel intense emotions like i’ve experienced upon meeting this girl, don’t write it off… ACT ON IT! Don’t let fear take over like i did..

I believe love can happen at anytime. It helps when you’re an adult verses being a teen. At that age they just have no clue. Anyways, I met this man on a dating site and we began to type back and forth for a couple of days. After that it went to phone calls and texts every day for another couple of days. Talking about everything and anything. After about 7 days we met in person and everything just clicked. It was that feeling that this is right. That comfy warm I can’t stand to be away from this person feeling. You have so much in common and just know that this person has everything In them that you have been looking for and the feelings are mutual. By the second meeting two days later we both expressed that we love each other and its the best feeling in the world. All I can recommend is that if you honestly feel you have that connection with someone no matter how fast it happened, don’t let it slip by you.

I always wondered if it existed until it happened to me recently. My trip was changed last minute and I had to go through another airport and on my way to the airport I was thinking about my family and how I’d like to try a bit harder for my marriage because it had just been going down so much and had even been considering separation (long story I won’t go into because it’s personal) Anyway, my flight was almost changed back to original plan but last minute I had to continue through the different route. I get there and as I’m at the transfer gate, this guy walks up and looks at me and asks if everything was ok. I felt something just go through me. I smiled back at him. We went through customs and I later went to the lounge and sat alone. He came and stood and started talking to me. The more he talked, the more I wanted to reach across and hug him. It felt like the most natural thing to do. I felt so comfortable. There was this warmth and my heart just seemed to go over. I was just overwhelmed with emotions. The entire night on the flight, I was thinking about him (he was sitting right behind me). In the morning, he stood up to go to the bathroom and stood right in front of me, smiled and we kept stealing glances at each other. I felt so shy and so happy at the same time. He gave me his card. I can’t stop thinking about him. I feel horrible because we are both married but I feel have fallen in love with him. I feel so connected to him. He’s like a mirror to my soul. How can this happen? What I feel for him, have never felt for anyone. Have had so many men approach me but have never given any the light of day and then he just parachutes into my life. I have no idea what I’m going to do! Meeting him has opened my eyes to all the convenient excuses have been making to stay in my marriage. Why should this happen now? Whatever happens, I’m glad I got to feel something so profound and I’m glad I found this site and a lot others have experienced the same.

I used to think people were crazy when they would say they were in love so quick or that the just had a feeling that that perzon was the one… I thought it was just attraction….Until I experienced it. There’s a guy in one of my classes that sits close to me and I just felt a strong connection between us. I felt like I knew him from some other place but I had never met him before than. It was love at first sight. Everytime I see him I just feel like I need to be close to him. I have never felt like this about any other guy. I know it’s deeper than lust, it’s love.

(124) Richard says:

Studies have actually shown that those who marry someone they claim to have fell in love with at first site have a marriage success rate at 75% in the US. That is pretty nice compared to those who date for years and stick with a flip of the coin 50% marriage success rate.

The thing is, everyone loves a romantic. Attraction is at its highest within the first hour of meeting someone and if you make a fantastic impression in that narrow time zone on each other, you’ll wonder where your partner has been all your life. Those who date for years to know somebody get bored eventually cause the “I love you” bit comes in way too late.

Basically saying, if you think you sincerely love somebody and it was at first site, you have a 55% chance of dating the person and a 75% chance of marrying the person for life!

I’m 20 years old, I’ve never had a boyfriend because my standards are really high, but although, I do believe in love at first sight for some people like my grandparents.

Back in the 1950s, my grandma & her friends went to a club to celebrate St. Patrick’s Day & there was this man (my grandpa) that came up to her & told her he was going to marry her without even introducing himself to her first lol (he was a funny guy). She laughed and didn’t even believe him although she though she thought he was a really good looking man.

He flirted with her the whole night, they laughed, danced, had a good time that my grandma completely forgot to be with her friends lol and three MONTHS later they got married and that lasted for 55 years.

Their love inspires me, I hope I find someone who would make me feel special just like my grandpa does.

R.I.P. Grandpa, I love you <3

(126) paul says:

I consider myself a very rational person – I studied physics.

As a university student 30 years ago, I recall being in a class and felt a girl staring at me, so I looked back at her and the attraction was undeniable and deep.

Every time I had the class, the same thing happened , but I was a very bashfull back then. We never dated that year but I hoped that we could meet the next year, but very sadly that never happened.

I thought about this girl for the next 20 years!

But just recently at work, this new person was hired and when first introduced, I instantly felt very attracted to her.

But this new person is married and so am I. – what to do? I have been shaken to point of depression and have had to seek help through psycho-therapy – to try and break the spell. I’m slowly getting back to normal, but every time I see this person, I suffer.

Good luck to those of you who have experienced un-remitted love – I never thought I would ever experience such pain…

You can fall in love at first sight. I know it’s true and it’s different than meeting someone you find attractive or sexy or hot and you want to know more about them and then you get to know them and fall in love. Love at first sight is like lightning striking and all the air being sucked out of the room and your heart in your throat and every nerve fiber in your body painfully and blissfully overloading. I fell in love at first sight once in my life. I was 11 years old. I was in my first class in middle school and the teacher sat us alphabetically. There were 4 of us at the table and I looked up and I saw his face and that was it. I knew he felt it too. His eyes said it all. Being so young, what we felt for each other was just too much for us to handle. We were too immature to handle the intensity. We “dated” on and off and then my parents moved my family to another state. We still saw each other when I was in my hometown for holidays. Timing has always been our problem. I’m married now and have a child. I love my family but I have loved this other man every day of my life since the very first moment I saw his face . I am now 37 years old. I have loved other men in my life and have known many kinds of love (and lust), but I know that this other man is the love of my life and somehow, someway we will be together. Even if it’s when we’re both in a nursing home. So I know that love at first sight does exist. It’s not lust or hormones it’s like no other feeling I’ve ever felt in my life. And even though we’re not together now I wouldn’t trade having the experience for anything in the world. I guess I feel sorry for people who haven’t experienced it.

I don’t know what to say. Do I or do I not? Well I do. I don’t have any sap love story that ends with “and we’ve been happily married for 25 years” (even though I hope for that one day” I’m 15 and a half. This past Saturday was a close friend of mine’s sweet sixteen. It was semi formal and we were all dressed up at a local country club situated on a beautiful golf course. The sun had already gone to sleep, but the dj in the room already had the music going. Me and my friends just had fun dancing and hanging out. But after dinner I caught one of the guys I didn’t know looking at me. We made eye contact and even without truly thinking about it, I thought to myself, “that’s him”

I spent the next hour figuring out how I was going to meet him, how to introduce myself etc. as it turns out, so was he. Not too long after that, we introduced ourselves. We ended up dancing together, and went it got to hot, we went outside….and took a walk for what seems like no time to me, but actually over an hour. I was automatically comfortable with him. We talked about random crap. We acted like idiots, pretty much wandering around the golf course…in the dark…in the rain…in 50 degree weather. I was cold, in bare feet and a cocktail dress, but I loved being with him sooo much.

It’s been barely over 72 hours since I meant, but deep down inside I know there is something sooooo special about him.

i most def. believe in love at first sight! i just met someone a few weeks ago on a dating website. i was scrolling down a long list of eligble bachelors and saw ‘him’. i knew in an instant i had to meet him. it was so overwhelming. i met him the following weekend. it was absolutely majical to say the least. i had been divorced for over 4 years. i have purposely been alone in my ‘safe zone’. not allowing opportunities to be vulnerable to love. and this knocked the wind out of my lungs. i am consumed with ‘him’. we live over 2 hours away. but. i would rather drive to see ‘the one’ than have someone i don’t care much for in my back door. this is still fresh and new. but. rather we part ways later in life. i will always think of him fondly and wish him well. i will never forget just the first glimpse of his pic….how it made soemthing come alive that was dead inside. for that. i am forever grateful……te amo mucho, mi amor. siempre.

I searched love at first sight on google because I was just so scared of what happened. I mean, is it possible to love someone you’ve only just made eye contact with? I was at a restaurant with my friends, and we were short of a chair. So I went to the table beside us to get an extra chair. He was just sitting there and I could’nt say anything…I just looked at him gesturing at the chair, and when he nodded, my face just broke into a smile. Realizing what i was doing, i hurriedly just pulled the chair over to our table and sat down. I could just feel him looking up at me and i just could not bring myself to make eye contact with him anymore…I REGRET IT SO MUCH!!! when he left, i just felt this great sense of loss and loneliness, and crap…im just so sad i never spoke to him. I just keep remembering that moment we locked eyes and his soft eyes were just seeing right through me…i know that ill never see him again and i guess it makes me think love at first sight is really painful especially for shy people like me…

I do believe, back in October I met this guy, It was so weird great, like a scene from a movie. I was getting out of my mechanics drive way heading home, ready to make a left turn, just as I look over to my left, there he was at the car wash vacuming his car.I was mesmorized just by his looks, it was of course physical attraction at first, I believe I stared at him for maybe a whole entire minute, right away I decided my car needed to be vacummed as well. So I pull into the car wash and park my car next to his, (at this point I’m so nervous) and when I do decide to get out the car, I tried not look directly at him. When I decided to look over to him our eyes locked immediately and all we did was look at each other for a brief moment, and than we smiled back at each other (By the way, he’s smile just made me melt) Long story short, I see him finally getting ready to leave, & I felt like I was loosing him, and I never even knew his name, I’m watching this guy getting in his car and out of no where, he shakes his head in disappointment and somehow knew it was for me. So he closes the door from his car and walks over to me and we end up exchanging numbers. We both get in our cars and now they won’t start, so now we’re both stuck there, he has AAA (Thank God) and I called my friend to come get me but to take her time!!! As we are waiting for our help to arrive we talked for almost an hour, an unforgetable hour, (it felt like 5mins). We connected right away and every minute that went by and the more we talked the more I felt like he was the one, I didn’t want to leave, I didn’t want him to leave, everything just felt so right, like it was meant to be! So we are now a couple and the feelig I had when I laid my eyes on him are just getting stronger and stronger as each day goes by. I feel like he’s the one for me! I love him! but I have yet to tell him. (sight) =)

It is absolutely real. How often do we get ‘butterflies’ in our stomachs just thinking about another person? How often is that once your eyes lock it’s as if you are the only 2 people in the whole world and you don’t want to turn away? How often does a person make you so nervous you can’t speak to them and shy away? How often does another person take up so much real estate in your heart & mind unless they are close relatives? I’m telling you it’s rare, not just lustful in nature but an extreme feeling that you are in love with that person from just looking into their eyes or exchanging brief conversation.
In 2007 I started to work for a company and I saw this guy around from afar and instantly thought “you have to get to know him”. I found out he was ‘married’ when I asked a co-worker who he was and not only was/is married but she worked for the same company at the time. Whatever was going on with my intrigue I shut off and moved along. It was a year later that I saw him staring at me – I couldn’t help but stare back at him and we began to always ‘look’ at each other by staring into each others eyes or stealing glances etc. It’s been going on for years now eventhough I’ve shied away and tried to steer clear from him because the energy I feel around him is deep connection/love and I am not the kind of person to betray another.
In fact it has felt like a longing and I’ve been unable to shake my feelings for him. I think he knows by the way he looks at me but I’ll never know if he fell for me too. I don’t think it has to be two sided either, love is love. In fact I really shouldn’t care what he thinks of me but if I could tell him that I think he’s beautiful I would.
It’s real.

Maybe this should be posted in a blog or something, but while visiting another country I met the most beautiful girl I could ever imagine. And I think I say that shes the most beautiful girl ever because of what this blog post is about. It wasn’t at very, very first sight, but I do remember sitting down in a room with her and several other people and our eyes just locking, and holding for several moments and feeling this incredible feeling of connection. Do I believe it was love at first sight? Yes. Do I believe that it is going to work out? I have no idea as I have not seen her since leaving the country almost three years ago, which truly does sadden me. To be honest, any advice or comments regarding this topic and the next step would be much appreciated! Gracias!!

It’s 4 AM. I literally read almost all 130 something comments, and it seems as though I can relate to everyone that talks about this love at first sight thing. I’m a confident young lady, don’t get me wrong, and I get a fair amount of play. I’m in a position where many people know my name and my face – gives me a huge advantage; sounds pretty ridiculous, but literally I pick and choose the guys that interest me. But there’s something about the things he says, his smile and his aura, that just get me. Funny, he is so opposite in character to me – I’m high energy and loud, where as he is most definitely shyer, more level-headed. Odd, because generally speaking I am attracted to the loud and confident beastly guys haha. We met, drunk, hooked up However, i by accidently took his jacket home. so, I needed to return it to him… a couple days later where he picked it up from me. It seemed he wanted to start a conversation, I could tell he was nervous, he was trying pretty hard to search for topics. We chatted for a long while before he headed out to get lunch, when I offered to join him he seemed pleasantly surprised. We ate and chatted for about 2 hours. He fascinated me. He was intuitive and teasing and witty, but soft and kind, he was not too bold. At times I had to catch myself from staring to curiously at him with a stupid grin on my face… he is tall and broad shouldered… He is so simple and yet so complex. I felt like I understood him, and yet I found him so intriguing…I asked if he would take my number. He seemed relieved and grinned. I remember him saying (when we were drunk) that he couldn’t believe that this beautiful girl was with him etc. But here’s the thing, it’s been 3 days and he hasn’t texted me yet. He waved and smiled at me today, but no text… I have openly displayed attraction for him, which I have never done for another guy. But should he be the one pursuing me? Did he never actually felt this mutual attraction? Is he just shy?

How many lafs who date, end up married?

Unfortunately, I’m one of the 45% that, for one reason

Haven’t thought about her for years, until recently.

Bittersweet memories. (cont.)

I’ve had my share of infatuations and
brief romances and I eventually married,

But only once in my life did I fall in “love”
a first sight.

I actually remember the date March 11, 1974,
I was a junior in high school ready for another day
of school. I go to 1st period chemistry class.

Another day as ususal, when before class
starts, the teacher introduces a new student,
who just transferred. That’s all it took.

As soon as I looked at her I got an adrenaline rush,
like when you’re surprised or startled.

I was thinking that’s the one for me. But fate
had no such plans..

I soon found out that I was so in “love”, that I didn’t
know what to say to her.

The worst part was she seemed to have an interest in me
too, you know the occasional glances and little smiles.

I’ll never forget the time, I was doing some schoolwork at
my desk and for some reason I just felt the urge to look up
and when I did, she was sitting at her desk staring right at me
with her beautiful smile.

However, I soon found out from the school grapevine
that she already had a boyfirend. I was thinking okay,
I can see why, I can wait. However, that made
it even more difficult for me to try and talk to her.

Summer comes and I’m thinking about her, hoping
maybe she’ll break up with the boyfriend. No such luck.

Senior years starts and I’m at 1st happy to see that we
have a class together. But things seem different.

Guess what? Not only is she still with the boyfriend,
They’re getting MARRIED. WHAT?!

Guess what? Apparently she wasn’t pregnant or anything,
they just went and got married.

bittersweet memories…. to be continued.

bittersweet memories (cont.)

She went and got married. I wasn’t expecting that.
I could handle her having a boyfriend, but married?

I was devastated at first, I ended up dropping the class
I had with her, mostly because of her and I didn’t
need the credits to graduate anyway.

I didn’t see her much for the rest of the year, I do
remember seeing her graduation day. As beautiful
as ever. Life goes on.

Almost 2 years after graduation, I’m driving along and
notice a car just like mine turning in to the local
hardware store. Can’t see who’s driving. Okay, it’s
not that big a deal to see someone driving a car that
has the exact same paint job as yours.

A week or two later I go to the hardware store to pick
something up. I notice the car like mine parked there,
so I figure the owner of the car probably works there.
As I walk in the door past the counter to get what I wanted,
I suddenly realize the store clerk is her and she’s asking,
“can I help you?” with a little smile. She realizes it’s me.
Turns out it’s her car. Coincident maybe?

What do I do?

I was so surprised, I don’t remember what I did next. I think I might
have mumbled something or shook my head. I was so flustered I
walked out of the store, I don’t know if I bought anything.

First, at this time I’m thinking she is married, but I could still
go back there and at least talk to her. A week or so later, I go
back and I notice her working in the back office, I didn’t want to
hang around too long so I bought something and left.

I attempted to go back and talk to her again but when I
parked, I couldn’t make myself go in and actually had
an anxiety attack. So I told myself to just let it go.

bittersweet memories (to be cont.)

bittersweet memories (cont.)

It wasn’t easy, but I was able to get her out
of my head. Afterall, she is married. Let it be.

That summer I had some fun and even had a
brief summer romance. However, that’s another story.

Within the following year after the hardware store disaster,
sometime in winter, I go to a friends small party.

I’ve had a couple beers enjoying myself, when the doorbell
rings. I go downstairs to answer the door and it’s kind of dark
and when I open the door I see 2 couples, but can’t see their
faces. At the same time I opened the door I felt or sensed
something, it went as quick as it came.

Anyway, we all go back upsairs, people are having a good
time. I may have been talking with someone when I see
her sitting in the chair and she see’s me.

Inside I’m thrilled to see her and I assume she’s with her
husband. I never seen him before. Thanks to the beer,
I don’t get nervous or anything. I had to take care of some
business (bathroom). When I came out she was still sitting alone
and (wait for it) we’re actually going to talk.

I remember she asked “do you remember me?”. After that
and 30 plus years, the rest of the conversation is a blur.
I’m pretty sure I called her by name and the first thing
I found out was that she had been divorced for a while
and she’s with a new boyfriend (who seems like a nice guy).
She got divorced because her ex did too many drugs.

We talked about what we’ve been doing since graduation.
We didn’t mention the hardware store incident, but I’m pretty
sure she remembered it. I also mentioned how we both drove
the same car (I had since gotten another car). She remembered
seeing my car driving around town. I believe we both noted
the coincident.

When we were out of things to talk about, I made sure
I told her how nice it was to see her again. She gave me
a nice smile, she knew what I meant.

bittersweet memories (conclusion)

Well, it only took almost 4 years since I first
laid eyes on her, but we finally had a conversation.
Better late than never I guess.

The next day I was still thinking about her and was
glad to hear she was divorced, but had a new boyfriend.

Than I remembered the hardware store incident and it
occurred to me that she very well could have been available
then and may have had a chance to ask her out. BUT NOOOO!!!
I was too surprised and shy to talk to her that day.
I’m thinking I REALLY blew it.

Maybe things won’t work out between her and the new
boyfriend, I’m thinking to myself. I tried to be philosophical.
If it happens, it happens. Well, it didn’t.

Over the next couple of years I saw her and the boyfriend
at one of the popular local taverns, 2 or 3 times.
Every time we saw each other we smiled and said hello,
but that was it.

I kind of got the impression the boyfriend didn’t want me
coming over to their table. I didn’t want to cause any
awkward situations. Be a gentleman I tell myself.

I figured if she really wants to talk again, she could
come to me. She didn’t. That’s okay. Such is life.

I’m pretty sure her boyfriend and I met at a pick-up
baseball game, one hot summer day through a mutual
acquaintance. I don’t think he recognized me. Like
I mentioned before, he seemed like a nice guy.
I kind of remember somebody mentioning he was
getting married. Good for them.

I assumed they got married. I occassionally wondered
what happened with them, but eventually forgot about her.
Life goes on.

No regrets for having fallen in “love at first sight”.
However, what is “love”?

I could go on, but nevermind.

Thanks Bonny

Yes, I believe. Three months ago I met someone in the church and I was in love with him at first sight. It’s also my first time that I was in love with much older than I. I myself don’t understand why I can do this.

Since then, every time I see him, I am so happy. I don’t care what his feeling to me. Currently, if I can meet him it’s more than enough for me. Thanks. Juz my 2 cents.

So I read through all the comments that was left and still thinking about these different opinions. Though I cannot explain what happened to myself a few days ago. I ahve not dated in about two years and the men that tried to talk to me surely did not interest me. I somhow felt extremely negative about the thought of dating someone. the idea of Love at first sight seemed sooooo dumb to me. I always thought people who say that have no backbone and just fall for the wrong idit for all the wrong reasons. I thought they are scared of being alone and run straight for the first guy that comes along. Pretty hardcore you might think. So, I talked to someone online for a few weeks rather more out of a bordom thing. We decited to talk over the phone, and I thought sure, why not, lets see what this moran has to say. Oops, I heard his voice and Im not sure what happened but we instantly decited to meet for a coffee.
Ans here it comes, I seen him and my heart went into double time, he hugged me and smiled from one ear to the other. We sat down and talked and I did not even feel like talking anymore, I just told him that I thought it was crazy how strong I feel for someone I JUST met. He said the same and his eyes got watery. No he is not a wimp at all, it just felt as we have been looking for each other all of our lives.
Call me naiv, foolish, all you want to, but me, as a person who never ever would have thought something like that could happen, IT HAPPENS. There is no better way of meeting someone on this kind of level, it is uniq, and to all the non believers…………I wish for all of you to be able to experience this just once in your lifetime.

I searched this topic to try to understand what has happened to me. I am married with children. I love my family and care of them everyday. In the past years I have lived with the unusual premonition that my husband will leave this life earlier than expected. Since those thoughts and feelings became part of my life I have innately realized I am ill equipped to be single again. First, let me say that this premonition has been a force to grapple with. I have searched my soul and prayed from the depths to learn if it comes from a true place or is my imagination. I come again and again to the conclusion that it has been revealed to me so that I can be prepared. I was married young and did not spend the usual time dating. My husband and I have had our lessons to learn like everyone else but we continue to love one another through all of life’s challenges. So I know I made the right decision marrying him.

This is what happened to me just two days ago. While at a training intensive a musician came to accompany our class. It was his second time, he had come last week on a Sunday. I saw him then and was struck by, of all things, the texture of his skin and the beauty of his face. I thought nothing else of it. Two days ago I set up in the front row, he was there again, but this time he was the one who took a second look at me. It was brief and polite. But I felt it. Class went on. His music is beautiful. I have one of his songs already. I had wanted to buy a CD the week before but didn’t get a chance. I decided to try again. After class I saw the CD stand behind him and tried to read the price but it was too far. So I walked up closer to see it. Somehow we just fell into an interaction about getting a CD, I asked him what kind of songs were in it, told him I already had one of his songs etc…words were just rolling out, nothing spectacular, but it felt so smooth and easy to talk to him. I asked him if he was based in LA and he immediately asked where I was. When I told him I lived 40 miles away he responded with a bit of gladness. I already had the money in my hand to I gave it to him, somehow while I was looking down to get it he had pulled out his business card which he handed to me. I managed to pull out a card from my back pack and handed it to him, a bold move for me but did not frighten me at all, felt very natural. I asked him if he did live gigs, silly question, he said he did and that he had three bands that he plays with doing such and such…I couldn’t really understand what he was saying…I guess my head was in a bit of a daze because of how he looked into my eyes.

May 6, 2013 at 7:46 pm
(147) Ananda says:

By this time the teacher had come out and was approaching him to talk about another gig. I thanked him and to my surprise I gave him a quick hug. It felt like I might not be able to see him again. I made a gesture of reverence, bowing as I bent to pick up my bags and looking into his eyes for the last time. I sent him a smile because I felt genuine love for him. His eyes were likewise kind but a little sorry that I was saying goodbye. I turned to leave as the teacher was already beginning to talk to him.

The day before this happened I had been going deeply in meditation and prayer to figure out why it is that I should know now that my husband will leave us. There have been a couple of other men who have sent me vibrations of attraction which put me in a position to think about them. The day before I pleaded for help. I don’t like thinking about other men while my husband is still with us. I remain faithful in my marriage in spite of advances of men through the years. The thought came to me that I need to think about these other men now so that I would know what I want. Because if I am left alone without considering what I want now I will likely make the wrong decision because I will be so lost. So I accepted the thought that I need to figure out what I would want in another love.

May 6, 2013 at 7:48 pm
(148) Ananda says:

I thought of the other men. I have felt their attraction to me. I had resigned that I would love whoever God gave me to love. But God wants me to know for myself who I want to love. The musician whose kind eyes reached my heart feels like the one I want. I want a quiet, peaceful love where words are secondary to feelings, where out spirits melt into one another and we think each other’s needs, where loving is easy because neither of us would ever do anything to hurt each other. I liked feeling deeply attracted without feeling afraid or threatened. I don’t want to feel conquered. I want to feel safe submitting my love which is deeply faithful. I had not experienced that with any of the other men. That feeling of mutual soul attraction is the one I want. He is beautiful to me and I sense that I am beautiful to him in equal proportion. That is what I want.

I have his card, he has my card. I am devoted to seeing my marriage through with complete fidelity and love to the very end. My hope is that when the time is right the musician and I will come together again and continue our conversation. I do believe in love at first sight. I believe that forces beyond have a hand in our lives. When we love true, true love will find us.

One last thought. My husband knows about this premonition. In the past few years I have even sensed him letting my know in subtle ways what kind of man he would like me to be with after he is gone. As I thought of the musician I feel certain my husband would approve of his kind and gentle manner. This thought brings peace to my soul. It all seems to fit.

Love at first sight most definitely is a fact, though not all will receive the utter daze of the experience: We all have different brains with individual peculiarities of perception. I came to understand its very clear manifestation for myself at age 24. Since then it’s happened a small handful of times; and, while I believe, in retrospect, I the feeling was mutual between at least three of them, only one developed into a heavily-bonded relationship, three weeks after talking on the phone, and that delay only because of her busy schedule (or, she was observing due caution, for which my respect overrides the annoyance of having had to wait to meet her–only a little, heh).

For those who doubt, or merely wonder how in the heck it could be–and I’ll be the first to say it sounds nuts–speaking only for myself, I see *her*, and instantly know how I will feel about her ten years from now, in the event a relationship does develop. For women who want their man to have eyes only for them, there is such a thing. When I’m in love, nothing can induce me to be interested in the slightest with another woman, no matter the provocation. Intellectually, some random beauty will register as that, but the feeling of just having come into possession of multi-millions simply doesn’t obtain for anyone else.

It’s the woman’s physiognomy, her countenance (and, to a slightly lesser degree, her carriage) that grabs me, and affixes my permanent attention. Her body type is relevant only insofar as it isn’t outrageously far outside my general parameters of taste.

I feel fortunate, never being able to hope I slowly fall in love. It’s within the period it takes that proverbial bolt to hit you, and not a fraction of a second beyond.

(I could detail this more; but in the interests of not providing an unwonted soporific, I’ll stay my hand, lol.)

Ok, here goes…Ive always kinda been a hopeless romantic but never believed in love at 1st sight. Still not actually sure of what to call it. So this guy has been a (well a patient in the office I work in, for 6 years) Ive nevera actually worked on him before orseen him I dont think. Well 1 month ago I assisted with him, there was a very strong attraction that day, He stood up and looked at me and I felt like I would die, he kinda smirked at me and I smiled back feeling embarrassed because I think I just undressed himwith my eyes, and Im pretty sure he saw that. I walked him to the desk to make his next appt. While he was standing at the desk he had this unease about him, kept turning around to face my room and then back again, over and over. A week and a half later he came back again and I went to the reception area to gethim and I called his name and he looked up at me, met my eyes and held this powerful gaze with me that seemed like forever. During the procedure I kept seeinghim almost staring at me , almost asking with his eyes, the same I feel towards him, “what is it with you?” 2 days later I was I was at walgreens and I was backing out and I stopped for some reason and looked towards the door and saw him walking in. I just ended up driving away. I ALWAYS THINK OF HIM, LIKE ALL DAY EVERYDAY! It scares me a lot, I know he’s divorced and a dad to 4 older children, im much younger than he and a mother of 1 child. Well I know that I get to seehim again in 4 1/2 months for a check up, its gonna be a LONG WAIT!!! Even if nothing ever comes of it, thanks to him I feel alive again!!!

I only met this guy at a Tangra restaurant through my Dad’s common friend. The moment he stepped out of the car I couldn’t take my eyes off him. I thought to myself ” he is so handsome, is he married?” The sad part is we only exchanged hi and bye. In the restaurant he sat all the way in the front, I couldn’t see his face properly. So I got myself busy talking to his niece and nephew. His father, middle brother and sister in law ended up asking questions about my college and career plans. I swear I must’ve looked silly talking and playing games with his niece and nephew. He probably thought this girl is 27, doing her bachelor’s degree yet she is acting like a 5 year old. Towards the end of the dinner, for some reason he walked up to me and stood next to me. I was just so nervous to look into his eyes, therefore I kept talking to his sister in law. It’s been a week n I can’t stop thinking about him. I can’t sleep nor can I eat properly. I want to see him again but how? I always keep thinking maybe he has a girlfriend I mean he is every girl’s dream man. He is handsome, comes from a good family, rich, did his bachelor’s degree in engineering, has a great job, smart, polite and sweet. Sometimes I think maybe he has a girlfriend or he’s gay(no offense). I am not sure it’s a love at first sight but I never felt like this about anyone. How is that just meeting a guy once can have so much impact in my mind and feelings that I end up sleeping for two hours everyday and rest of the day I think about only him. Weird part is I cried almost everyday after seeing him.

Yes, I believe it. It just happened to me this week. Totally head over heels and it feels like I have known this complete stranger most of my life. I can’t wait to talk to him, be near him, and laugh at his quirky sense of humor…..and it’s only been 9 days since we met.

I am a grown woman who has had several relationships and an 11 year marriage….this is something completely different.

I was 29 years old, twice divorced, living with a good girlfriend for 3 years. I had no children, no debt, no responsibility other than showing up at work 5 days a week and satisfying my girl twice a day. My friend introduced me to a girl with 3 young kids. I wanted nothing to do with this sort of thing. My life was very uncomplicated and I liked it. The moment I met her, I could not look away, although I tried. My buddy tried to drag me away from her, always the wingman that he was, to no avail. I was mesmerized. I made excuses to see her over the next couple of weeks. My girlfriend worked 2nd shift, I worked 1st. Every piece of the puzzle fell into place. I thought she was using me to make her ex jealous. She thought I was using her for…everything I could get. We finally got over the angst and formed a partnership. We had 2 more kids. That was 25 years ago. We still talk about the miracle that happened when my old wingman introduced us. We fell in love with each other the moment we met. We speculate that we probably were in love with each other 20 years before we met, but we were being “prepared” for the actual meeting. I don’t want to get too spiritual here, but real love is all about two spirits becoming one. My wife has strength where I have weakness, I have strength where she has weakness. We are gold. Our kids, on the other hand, are all idiots. But they are all adults, so that’s not my problem anymore.

Yes, there is. And, you don’t have to prepare.
Not very social. I had good friends. I was 19yrs. old. I turned and across the room,SHE was there. The most beautiful woman in the world.
But, I tell you that wasn’t necessary. Maybe
enough to catch my attention.It was the “Dance at the Gym”
from West Side Story. Everyone, just faded away. Long walk.
I stood there. SHE said,”Do You Know Me”? I said, “I’d better, you’re the only one in the room”. Later SHE said her knees went weak when I said that.
We didn’t, “Work things out”. I was far from prepared. We never fought. We could not stand to see each other hurt. When SHE was cross with me She would call me “Mister”.”Now listen here, Mister”, her hands on her hips. So beautiful AND cute.
I took her to the Russian Tea Room for her birthday.When she walked in to the room,I had to lean on the wall. SHE ran over. “Are you alright, Alan? We can stay home if you aren’t
well”. You are just too beautiful, Princess”. (And she was,
a”Princess”. Her grandmother was full blooded Cherokee. Chiefs wife). “Wherever we are is fine. As long as there’s you. I love you, you know”. I said, “I love you more”.
For almost 3 years our lives were blended. The feelings did not
wane, did not get tangled in problems. It was not work. She never hurt me. And, DAMN, SHE could cook!
Ending was not due to problems or unworkable
problems. We were together 33 or 34 months. As the time
passed we just got deeper.
There is no mistaking it. And, in this case, my “LAFS” WAS EVEN MORE ASSURED, NOT LESS. Because it was a state of being from head to toe. And I was totally unable to dislike, be angry (for more than 10 minutes), or have to change (myself or HER) anything.
I love her still She called 5 years ago on my 50th
birthday. It was like I had spoken to her the day before. “I told
you I would always love you, Alan. I always will”. “You’re always
with me, Princess. We will be together some day”.

I never really thought about love. But recently it’s all I think about. There is this boy I’ve seen for 3 years going to the same swim team pool. I’ve never had a practice with him because we were on different teams. I would watch him swim 3 year ago right before my practice and I developed a little crush on him because I really loved his laugh and thought he was pretty adorable. Recently 3 years later I saw him again and I felt like little lighting bolts were pulsing through my body and I wanted to cry and laugh at the same time. He walked by me and accidentally bumped into me, I didn’t realize it was him. I said sorry even though it wasn’t my fault. And when he said sorry to our eyes met and my breath hitched and I started shaking. Everyday since then I think about him and I feel a strong fondness to him. I have no idea if this is “love at first sight”. But if it is I’m very happy it was with him

I’m fourteen so I am still a novice when it comes to to the enigma called love. Still though, connotation wise (litterally speaking) no I do not. Lately though, i thought of it metaphorically and thought what if instead of the “first sight” being a physical image, what if it could also be translated into ‘Love at first sight’ with “first sight” meaning first sight of her( i’m saying her because I’m a guy) true personality. That I believe is true. Just putting it out there.

(159) lera says:

Most of you may not believe me, but its true, LOVE at first sight exists. I met mine in high school. When he saw me, he didn’t know me, but to this day he tells me that he had an urge to know me and have me. When we first hung out, we were sitting on my couch, and he looked down at me and was filled with every amaxing emotion possible. Thats when he knew and I knew that we were those two people that were meant to find eachother. This is the hard to believe part, I was seventeen and he was eighteen when we met and felt this way. A year later, we amaze people more and more by how we look at eachother and how we act. Are there some people who believe we don’t know what love is yet? Yeah there are, but they are wrong. Love is wanting to be with that special all the tine because you never get bored, its loving everythinf about eachother, even the flaws. Love is feeling what that person is feeling and finishing eachothers thought, and even thinking the exact same thing at the same time. Its like having an attached ora that everyone can see! So the next time someone tells you that you don’t know what love is, even when you know you do, that’s because that person doesn’t know what love is. I feel sorry for those people, because they don’t have that happiness and fullfilment that you do.

It’s hard to decipher what is felt when your eyes fall upon someone who actually makes your heart skip a beat.
I had jury duty for the first time in my life recently. I was not looking forward to it at all. I was picked for the first case but then dismissed for whatever reason. I returned after lunch for the start of the 2nd selection. In walks this man. I saw him before he saw me. He and another nicely dressed man sat down at the defendent’s table. From the seating arrangements I thought he was the defendent. A criminal!, I thought… turns out he was the lawyer.
Even when I was thinking he was a criminal, I was melting with lust for him!
Then it happened…… I was picked. I walked up to the box and sat down (a nervous wreck). When his eyes met mine something happened. Time stopped for a moment. All 200 people in the room disappeared. A feeling of love rushed through my soul! I knew I wanted to know him. I wanted to share my life with him. Sounds silly but I believe love at first sight can happen. The trial is Monday. I plan on approaching him soon after!

You cannot tell if you belive in love because love wouldn’t explain for it.
When your inlove there’s no love at first sight because when your inlove you woludn’t explain your feeling…Love doesn’t need descreption neither explanation…you just need to feel it..

This was posted a year ago but I cant help but feel hopeful reading everyones comments, and wanted to share too…

My story is a little different, I was 17 and in my math class when my friend mentioned his older brother(whom i had never met/seen), how he was the captain of the soccer team and how amazing he was and etc. I remember being curious of him at the time but i brushed it off… then a few months passed and I dreamed of this stranger.. long dream short, he hit my left arm with a cooked turkey leg… yeah kinda weird Lol anyway I woke up and my left arm was aching.. I had never experienced that before in my life and I had a hard time falling back asleep because I had this weird feeling wash over me…Few weeks pass and I go to this huge church event with my family, and I see the stranger from my dream there, and i instantly felt drawn to him, like I was connected to him, like I knew him… I asked my sister if she knew who he was and she said that he was my classmates older brother, the captain of the soccer team.. I was stunned, we held eye contact throughout the event that day, and I could tell he was curious of me too but nothing ever happened…. He didnt know me, we didnt go to the same church, or work together or anything.. there was no way for us to really talk or get to know eachother… years passed by and he was always in the back of my mind, in my heart.. and it was unlike any “crush” or “lust” or “infatuation” …the only way I could think to put it into words was like he, was a part of me…
Part 1.

Part 2.
Thats crazy talk huh? …Anyway I had several dreams of him since then, one in particular that was so intimate and beautiful I woke up with tears in my eyes, I dont think ill ever forget that one….. As time went by i decided to reach out somehow…. So I was naturally shy and never really made the first move on men, I would let them pursue me..but I made the first move with him… through FB.. Wow, this sounds lame typing it.. anyway we didnt really hit it off aswell as i would have liked but we had some short cute conversations here and there… Probably didnt help that he was working out of state at that time(and still is)..
But then he comes back into town to visit, and we saw eachother on Easter, and later that day he comes to play volleyball with the youth of the church.. And i was so nervous, i went completely silent, we never really talked much in person it was all on FB and we didnt really that Easter day either but when he came he hopped onto the oppisite team, and when we began playing again neither of us could take our eyes off eachother…he was very athletic and very good, and then he kept hitting the ball to me and all my cousins were looking at me confused, I honeslty thought I was seeing things until my girl cousin confirmed that he was doing it on purpose, and I wasnt crazy…
I thought I could die happy.. Lol I thought that was it, he would ask me for my number, and everything was going to moving forward… but then he went back to work out of state and never wrote me… I was a little more than heart broken…..
But then I realized that its okay, because
I, in my own way tried… I wont always wonder “what if” … I trust God. Because I do believe that it is some sort of spiritual tie… I trust him..

There is this girl in my class who i just cant take my eyes off of course I stray my eyes away to avoid being caught in a awkward scene but she is just wow and i haven’t said one word to her (in college) I plan on telling her how attractive she is and how I think shes a rose among pedals and I’m glad that I met you Rose then proceed to ask her out for coffee to get to know each other I would have done so already if i wasn’t cockblocked by my friends I would say but the next class i have with her is in a couple days I must ask her out!

Okay, I’m reading all this because I want to tell myself that what I’m feeling is infatuation, just a feeling that will go away.
I met this person three years ago at this annual conference briefly. It was the eyes. When I looked at him, I saw myself drowning in it. My stomach knotted so I had to stay away and avoid eye contact until I left that meeting. I was smitten. A year later, same thing happened. He walked casually? past where I was and I was rooted to the spot I was standing. I couldn’t look at him (I was afraid he’d see through me) and I couldn’t stay away from him. So I tried casually to walk up to him, make small conversation which I did but couldn’t stay for long. I had to take off again. Again we parted ways and met up again this week. When I walked into the hall where we were supposed to be in, I found out his booth was located one booth away from mine. And when I saw him, and him I, we just gravitated towards each other. As I’m writing he is in another hotel getting ready to go home as I’m doing the same. Last day of conference and I tried to say goodbye casually and walked out but I couldn’t leave. After walking to and fro outside the hall for an hour, I just had to go back hoping he was still around. Not to say anything but just to see his face, the eyes. I walked into the hall where I’d left and there was no one so I walked out to leave and he strides from across the room to where I was. We didn’t say anything. We just walked together as if we’d always done that. He walks me out and I couldn’t say anything right. I just wanted the moment to last forever.

It’s true I had just moved to Jacksonville Florida. I got off from work one day & decided to go to the grocery store to buy some gatorades before I went to go play basketball… I went to check out & I saw the most beautiful girl in the world, she literally took my breathe away…. We exchange numbers however we both moved to new states… It’s been since 2007 & I Think about her everyday… I pray to God we see each others again… I talked to a lot of people about it & they all say it wasn’t meant to be,but I can say I love her….

I met someone 14 years ago at a house party. As soon as my friend Gabe told me to turn around to meet Derrick, it felt like someone pushed my chest with 2 hands. I immediately saw him kind of throw his head back as if he experienced the same thing. We talked all night until 7am the next morning. We had the best relationship ever and dated for 2 1/2 years.

The last year of our relationship we had to part due to his mom hating me and demanded he break it off with me. We lost our townhouse due to losing jobs and not having enough income, so he broke up with me.

His friends told me he was in terrible shape, but he broke it off, not me! I moved away to forget about my shattered heart and pain. Left all my friends and family. I think about him and dream about him almost every day.

Was engaged to another guy for 6 years, date him for 8 years. Felt unlike myself for years, so I broke it off recently.

I found Derrick in my old town. I’m going to “accidentally” bump into him this weekend. An old friend of ours is having a party in the town I used to live in.

wish me luck! I still love Derrick…can’t shake him from my heart. I believe love at first sight does exist.

It was very Unusual for me and im 14 and these things dont normally happen to me but I was sitting in the back of my aunts car waiting at the intersection for people to get buy and i saw this man this guy walking buy my car with a group of friends and we immediatley locked eyes and it was a very strong feeling that i felt i dont know what it is yet but i looked away and then looked back and we instantly met eyes again he looked about 17 or 18 and lets be real i would be very scared and skeptical to date a guy that much older then me but i don’t know what it was if it was love at first sight or just wanting somebody but it was something magical that i think you only feel once in your lifetime i cant tell the future but i do feel like i will be seeing him again soon.
