Love at first sight? by MoonChildStamps Love at first sight? by MoonChildStamps
It doesn't exist.
Even for a baby that parents say they "fell in love with on sight".
No they didn't. They became attached to the idea of what their baby could be and what it would be, and became attached to it in the womb.
You do not develop a deep emotional connection with someone at first sight.
That friction burn in your pants from an erection isn't from love, it's from lust.

Sure is bullshit, you can't love someone because you saw them.
If you feel something lovely at the first sight of an attractive person,
you are either in lust or infatuation. Love takes time and is based
on closeness and connection

EXACTLY...
Lust is a carnal desire envoked by hormone flow to the brain that leads down to your nether regions...IT DOES NOT CONSTITUTE IF YOU LOVE SOMEONE.
Romeo and Juliet? LUST STORY. The Notebook? LUST STORY. The Fault in Our Stars? LUST STORY. The Titanic??LUST STORY.
NONE OF THOSE STORIES WERE ABOUT TRUE LOVE AT ALL. NOTHING BUT LUST.
You want to write a real love story? DO NOT HAVE THE CHARACTERS SAY "I LOVE YOU" WHEN TEHY FIRST MEET AND THEN HAVE SEX.
Build it up over several chapters, have them have their ups and downs, and so forth.
THEN you can decide about the sex (I prefer until marriage but taht is my morales and limiting my chances of getting STDs)

I know! This is so true. It's like "Hello stranger, I just met you and I want to marry you!" The worst offender of this IMO is Thumbelina. The movie where a pinch sized girl falls in love with a fairy, gets thrown to Hell and back by frogs, cockroaches, and ALL OF THEM experience love at first sight to her, but noooo, she wants the fairy. So you know what she does about it? She cries and broods. Grow a spine girl!

Unfortunately, it's a cliché in so many movies. Maybe because it's an easy way to avoid the hard, hard work on actual character development. It's really a shame. Especially the fact that it's usual in too many family movies like Disney's and Dreamwork's, and even many otherwise great movies commit using it. Even the newer ones like Wreck-It Ralph. I wonder how come professional screenwriters with the ability to create multidimensional and relatable characters not be able to pull an equally complex thing like falling in love well. I think movies/cartoons/books/et cetera where the plot lasts for less than one month shoudn't have any characters falling in love, unless they already know each other.

"love at first sight" is just a fancy way of saying someone is infatuated.

If love at first sight exists, I sure as hell haven't experienced it. The person I like I met almost six years ago and I didn't even really like him at first, then I got to know him a bit and a couple of years later I knew I loved him. Though he doesn't know, but...I should shut up now.

Love at first sight is bullshit. End of story.

Okay, possibly there is a 0,0000000000000001% chance to fall in love at first sight... but it's like winning a jackpot without buying the ticket. If I didn't believe that anything is more or less possible I would say it's complete lie XD

Trufax, man. Tru motherfucking fax.
If you think about it, love at first sight is a really unromantic idea. Since you can't know someone's personality just by looking at them, in order to fall in love with someone at first sight, you'd have to be in love with their looks. Either that, or you'd have to believe that "We're soul mates and FATE brought us together and that's why we fell in love at first sight!!!1" bullshit, which is equally unromantic, because you have no choice in the matter.

I believe in fate, in the sense that SOME things are predetermained, only by the choices you make. Like, picture yourself in a round room, with doors all around, each choice you make, is one door, that one choice, you open the door, sometimes, there's just a straight hallway, but most of the time, there's at least one other door in that hall, you can take it, or you can just keep going on that path. Fate and your life MAY be predetermined, but the choices YOU make determine where it goes.

I think people that talk about love at first sight might be actually talking about feeling a bond with someone when they first meet them. You know, when you feel like you met someone before, or that you are meant to know that person. Initial attraction to someone has a lot to do with physical appearance, but also compatibility (numerology is a good example), parental figures, just so many things. I find that the people I've been initially attracted to are usually very compatible with me when numerology is concerned-- which is a strange coincidence, I think.

Of course, you are right, you can't fall in love at first sight without knowing someone, but you can feel drawn to them on a deeper level at first, I think. At least, this is my interpretation. :) :peace:

Yes. Lust is a very non-complex emotion. It is a physical natural desire to "mate" rather than a admittedly complex emotion.

I met this guy ones and I liked him a lot. It wasn't lust but it wasn't love either. I just liked him a lot. But as we became closer and I got to know him I became to like him even more. So, maybe it's love but I do agree that the first time you see someone you feel attracted to, it isn't love. Just deep like. There is a difference.

So you fell in love with a PERSONALITY.
Not a sight, a personality.
If you people would actually read, I say "love at first sight" you know those cheesey ass romance novels and movies that have all the sparkly lights and frilly fru-fru shit when someone "sees" their "true love" not talks to, not interacts with, SEES. With no form of communication other than that.

Love = deep emotional connection based on someone/something's personality and attitude.

Lust = a shallow feeling based solely on looks where you want to sleep with them or try to get with them because you think they look good.

So if love is a deep emotional connection based on someone/something's personality and attitude, I must have experienced love at first sight.

When I saw the stranger, not only did I have the typical stomach feeling and magicalness, I sensed that he had a good soul and something told me that he was different than all the superficial boys I knew.

Just saying my opinion. :)

I can understand intuition. I've felt it before. xD But you really can feel like you love them. But, you can feel like they're a good person, but not actually love them. :shrug: I just really feel you have to know them for awhile before you can say for sure that you love them. Hell even a week is better than seeing a random stranger and saying you fell in love.

Yeah, I get what you mean.

Thing is though, most of the crushes I get are people I barely know.
And once I really get to know a crush, they aren't as attractive anymore because most people are actually really trivial and stupid in my town.

Someone would have to be really special if I were to continue loving them for the way they are xD

You can't have a deep emotional connection with someone based on their looks alone. That's my point. I thought it was fairly clear. Are you retarded?

Nice attitude I see. Classy.

By "first sight" I would think that it means first meeting. If you take "first sight" literally, then it would be impossible. If you take it in a figurative sense and replace sight with "meeting" then it's very well possible.

:iconmoonchildstamps:
MoonChildStamps Featured By Owner Jul 5, 2011
No. My stamp flat out said "love at first sight", not "love at first meeting."
So why did you take that to mean "meeting"? Unless you are being clueless and reading more into this stamp than there is.
I think you could become attached to and attracted to someone in your first meeting, maybe even infatuated, but I still don't think one "meeting" would equal actual love.

Starlow-FTW Featured By Owner Jul 5, 2011
Because nobody says love at "first sight" in a literal sense. Even in the fairy tales, the two don't just glance at each other, they meet each other, and yet it'll call it love at "first sight". It's a metaphor.

No. People have actually fucking done this in the school I went to.

"I love him!" "how do you know?" "I just do!" "Have you ever talked to him?" "No! One look is enough, I know we're meant to be together!!!!!!"

And what about those cheesy things of sparkly lights and shit in movies when someone sees someone and thinks "OMG It's love!"
It happened in several movies
"The Last Unicorn"
"Jungle Book"
"West Side Story"

And the classic that no one should model their relationship after, it happened in "Romeo and Juliet"
