I certainly don’t, because I think you have to know a person before you can love them. But I’m really curious to know what other people think about this. Do you think you can fall in love with someone the second you see them?

No, I believe that it’s LUST at first sight when people think they’re in love. You can’t love somone until you really know them.

Nope. I think people retroactively look at it as love if it happens to work out (I fully believe in lust – and in some cases that happens to lead to long-lasting love for people). People have the tendency to rewrite history based on how things worked out.
It’s like when a marriage fails and people say, “I knew when I married him/her that it was a bad idea.”
Meanwhile, the happily married couple says, “I knew it would all work out when we got married.” Sometimes, one couple winds up telling both of those stories – they knew it was great when the marriage is happy; they knew it was a mistake when it ends badly.

I don’t believe in love at first sight. With that being said, my now husband and I fell in love within 2 weeks of knowing each other.

@Ruby-Redshoes: I think you can get that instant chemistry, but love takes time.

I believe in infatuation at first sight. Love? No.

I certainly believe in attraction, chemistry, even infatuation at first sight, but not love.

I believe that the chemistry between two people (which is very scientific) can be so strong that you feel something when meeting someone for the first time that feels like it could be love. But true love takes time to grow.

I don’t believe in love at first sight, but I do believe that you can feel something special at first sight

This, for sure! I think there are certain people that you can instantly feel a connection with but that it takes time to figure out what that connection actually is.

- Wedding: September 2013 - B&B
I agree with most PP’s: I believe in SOMETHING at first sight, but not actual love. That takes time to grow.
I saw my FI (across the hot tub haha) for the first time and I swear all other sounds and sights blocked out for a second and I thought “Oh WOW who is that?!” It sounds so corny but it’s true. I glanced over, saw him, and Im sure I had no idea at the time exactly how significant it was, but I felt something for sure. I KNEW I needed to go talk to him lol.

I’m a believer. I knew the moment I met my husband he was The One. I heard his voice, his laugh, saw his face and bam! Turned out the feeling was mutual and I was right. 🙂
This is coming from a woman in her 40’s with LOTS of experience with men and having been through numerous relationships (and divorce). My husband was different. I could tell in some deeply intuitive way, all the way to my bones it seemed.
I never believed in love at first sight before I met him.

I didn’t until I met my FI. We both just knew that we had something the day we met. Too bad it took two and a half years for us to start dating, haha.
