    No. I believe in lust at first sight, and I believe in sparks at first meeting, but love... true love takes time to happen.

    I believe. I can still remember the moment I first laid eyes on my now wife. I was 18, she was 16. It was her first day of work in a store I had worked in for a year. She knew the manager, so she walked through the front door, saw the manager, and with a big smile gives her a hello. The smiled knocked me out...BUT she had a rival high school letter jacket on, so I had to tell myself I wouldn't like her. As soon as we talked I found out she was the sweetest, nicest, most caring person I knew AND she laughed at my jokes.

    Unfortunately, it took her about ten years to feel the same way, but it was worth the wait. We've been married over ten years and her smile still knocks me out.

    Love, no. Lust, yes. Sometimes that lust blends into love. Sometime that lust blends into a giant *kitten* that is gonna screw you over. It's all just a crapshoot.

    Not love just lust....I know cause she slapped me and said "my eyes are up here"!
  • I don't know if you'd count it as love at first site but my first though upon seeing my now husband in his plaid jacket when he picked me up for our first date was "daddy would approve" LOL I knew he was the one right from the start! :)

    Well When I met my late wife Zena, it was the end of the Night at a club in Norwich England, I knew by the end of those three dances I wanted her to be my wife, so I did something I never used to do and I asked her for her phone number, she then did something she never used to do and gave it to me. Not sure its first site but took about 20 mins. We were married 23 years 10 months and 9 days when god called her home.

    Awwwwwwww what a sad & yet nice story... happy you had the time you did together :flowerforyou:

    Love is a mix of social conditioning and imagination. If your conditioning and imagination allows you to be in love at first sight, then you are.

    Me, I believe in attraction at first sight. Had that plenty of times. No rhyme or reason or romantic nonsense to it, I've just had times in my life where I saw someone and instantly wanted him.

    Yes. It really was love at first sight and we've been happily married for 31 years! He's my best friend and I knew I loved him the first time I saw him and it's never changed!!!
