    Post Love at First Sight

    Love at first sight


    Do you believe in love at first sight? Scientists study our brain activity and say that it’s quiet possible but everyone is free to believe or not to believe.

    Some people claim that it happened to them and it was like you raise your head, meet those eyes and tell yourself “It is He/She!”. Psychologists say that love at first sight depends on our psychological state at the moment. In some case we won’t even notice those charming eyes in another they can make a lasting impression on as. Also they say that it takes about 30 seconds to fall in love or precisely speaking to estimate whether the person is worth to fall in love with. By the way psychologists claim that men fall in love first.


    Very many factors act in the situation of falling in love from the first sight. These are our ideals, intuition or “fast logic”, imagination etc. When you fall in love at the first sight you are usually ready and willing to fall in love. Less possibility that it will happen if you are tired, stressed, solving problems in you mind. Of cause the main part in falling in love is given to the appearance, voice, gestures, smell. One person intuitively searches in the other the qualities and the feature to complete him/herself. Of causes beautiful people attract attention the most, but sometimes it’s wrong to fall in love with them easily because those people are experiencing much attention from the people of the other sex all the time and your delightful reaction may simply have no answers.


    But if you suddenly fall in love with quiet unknown person and see that it’s mutual that may mean even that mother-nature has chosen a partner that genetically suits you a lot. In this case it is like “aha, match!” when someone happens to fill up all the necessary categories like “tall, blond, blue-eyed, looks good, has a style and nice manners, likes me”.


    Still the cases when people really had fallen in love from the first sight and lived long and happily after that are rather it. You may dream of a beautiful stranger that waits for you just around the corner but it’s wrong to name every slight sympathy and interest to a person the love at first sight. Maybe you’re just a little tired of everything that surrounds you or trying to fill the emptiness inside, yet it doesn’t mean everyone who looks nice will do. Sometimes it takes patience and time to find out the true nature of your feelings, mind that wonders do happen but not as often as we would like them too. If you suddenly have felt the wings behind you back still try to keep your feet on the ground because if it’s really love at first sight nothing will happen to it but if you’re taking illusions for reality falling back on the ground can be really hurtful.


    By the way some theories say that we fall in love not from the first sight but from the first smell. Scientist claim that we pay much attention to what our eyes and ears tell us but on the subconscious level the way the person smells play a very big part in his or her expression on us although we don’t recognize it.


    As always there’re as many opinions as many people. Each one has an equal right to exist because whatever the all those scientifical researches find out love still stays a sphere in which no one quiet sure in anything.

    I have no choice but to believe, as it's happened to me more than a few times. But most of these have been just crushes and not acted upon.

    Smell is a powerful catalyst, both for love or distaste.

    But for our group perhaps the most relevant question is: Do you believe in love at first post?

    Speaking of love at first post......

    My husband and I met on-line. I can't say that it was "love at first post" though. I can tell you this much, he was never one of those internet cassanova's trying to woo every female into his IM box. We were friends long before we were anything more. We held together through good and bad-- as nothing more than friends. And it evolved into more.

    I didn't know the word, a funny one. Very speaking as well.

    By the way psychologists claim that men fall in love first.
    Hmm, I'm skeptical. What's sure is that in love, women change their minds more often than men. There are some good french sayings concerning love and women.

    Of causes beautiful people attract attention the most, but sometimes it�s wrong to fall in love with them easily because those people are experiencing much attention from the people of the other sex all the time and your delightful reaction may simply have no answers.
    Hmm, and why waiting for love? I don't think love is necessary, if you like the person it's enough. Love comes after.

    Feromone. It's all about chemistry. Nothing delibarate. It's why very often it doesn't last.

    Love at first sight

    A quick glance, a friendly smile - sometimes it clicks immediately between two persons. Other people take a bit longer to fall in love.

    Do you believe in love at first sight?

    Love takes a long time, but you can become (forelsket in norwegian, I don't know the similar word in english. "for-" pre; "-elsket" in love) at first sight. To love, you have to really know the person. Or else you'll only love the image you have of that person. The more you know that person, the more complete and correct that image becomes and only when you fully know the person and still love her/him, only then you can be truly in love.

    (Have I gotten it right? Do I understand love or am I totally off track? It is difficult to try to explain something I have not fully experienced.)

    Another question is how long does such last...And how realistic it is.

    Hypnosis or karisma can manipulate people to fall in love in a second, but...fascination are a suggestive technic. Also magic spells may work for some time, but leads often in the long run to personal catastrophes IMO.

    I have more believe in finding out that one shares the same taste, values and culture, as the the common multiplum. Much are done then...

    Although love at first sight and finding your one true soul mate is very rare, it is very real.
    The third shall be the final and decisive one.

    He who knows not, and knows not that he knows not, is a fool - shun him.
    He who knows not, and knows that he knows not, is a child - teach him.
    He who knows, and knows not that he knows, is asleep - wake him.
    He who knows, and knows that he knows, is wise - follow him.

    It certainly is, it certainly is...if its not the one thing that is wrong, then the other...:

    Some are bound to live alone...

    My deepest symphaty with all the hungry hearths that has no one but themselves, but would give "all in the world" to find somebody to love and be loved...

    Our overdeveloped intellects should be turned off sometimes, it has a tendence to complicate such things as love, it simply have not more to do with it, than fishes flying upon the skies...

    When I first swa her, I was in love and now we are a pair for more than 5 years, so I believe in "Love at first sight". After some weeks or months the "first sight love" changed from amorousness into something more concrete. As I´m believing that love is at least a kind of "chemical reaction" and our scent is one of the most inciting powers, maybe I just like her perfume...
