I think you can have physical attraction to a person at first sight… but love (according to my own definition and experience) develops over time and is built on trust, honesty, acceptance, forgiveness, etc.  However, I will say that my husband and I had a very long, slowly-growing type of relationship.  I’m sure others have different experiences that shape their views on love.

FI and I began dating almost as soon as we met, but it was more of a like at first sight experience. I believe it may exist for some people, but I wouldn’t have trusted it if it happened to me.

Seeing how my SO and I first met at technology summer camp when we were younger and never spoke, and then he pulled my hair throughout class in 9th grade and we argued all the time… probably not! (Though now we joke and insult each other out of love? Hahaha)

I didn’t think I did..until I was sitting in class and he walked in.  Literally I went, “holy crap!” haha.

It takes me awhile to get to that love feeling.  I’m very suspicious of people and their motives.  But 7 years ago, DH told his friend the night he met me that I was the girl he would marry. and lo and behold he did on Saturday!  πŸ™‚

@HnyBee: I agree with @EvaBostonTerrier that real love by its very definition cannot develop instantaneously. But the night I met my husband, there was a moment while we were dancing that we looked into each other’s eyes, and we both felt something we had not felt before. I can’t call it love; it was more like an intense instant connection that we both knew was significant.

I most definitely believe in it! Such a hopeless romantic!

That wasn’t the way it happened for me and my boyfriend though, lived in the same small town all our lives.. and I most certainly did not love him at first site. I didn’t really know him or even like him for that matter. He was four years older then me, but fate brought us together!

I don’t believe in love at first sight. I believe in a physical attraction that can turn into love. But that’s just my opinion.

My FI and I somehow knew right away that we liked each other! He apparently knew that I was “the one”… it took me a few days πŸ™‚ Haha. We can’t remember when we met though, so that’s weird. And looking back two years ago, I certainly can’t say that I loved him… I really really liked him… but I didn’t know enough about him to be as crazy in love as I am now.

But I suppose you can argue that mothers/fathers experience love at first sight. In fact, they probably love before seeing! So cute πŸ™‚

I wasn’t a beliver before meeting my hubby..the moment I met him, everything cease to exist.  He smiled at me and I was totally in love.  He was smittened with me too.  We talked (via text and emails) all day and all night while our work productivities came to a screeching halt for three weeks.  We finally had the courage to setup a face to face date where he came to pick me up.  The night was magical..again i was head over heel and we just did not want the night to end…after our date ended..we stayed up until 6am talking where he promised to spend all his friday nights with me.  We haven’t spent a friday night apart since then. πŸ™‚

When I first saw my DH I thought he was a cocky asshole. I refused to speak or interact with him because the way he acted around others disgusted me. Then, I opened up to conversation with him. He asked me the question, “Who is your favorite person in history?” (Yeah, we’re nerds like that.) I said, “Well, you’re going to think I’m crazy–” to which he said, “I could never think such a harsh thing about you.” And my heart melted. πŸ™‚

ETA- Now he calls me crazy at least once a week. Oh, how things change! πŸ™‚
