    No.

    Of course, there are people who will disagree with this but people, in general, fall in lust...because of some physical attraction. Now, in time, this could lead to love...if they decide to act on this attraction. but that's not love at first sight.

    with that said, i find that people fall in "love" with good sex...quicker than anything else.

    I don't think so. For me love is developed. Lust at first sight yes.

    YES...IT DOES!
    It can happen more than once. For me it has happened three times.
    It takes you by surprise, but unless the other person allows it to blossom it will only be passing.
    With First Sight love time may go into slow motion. It may freeze you for a moment into a gaze.
    It may may not allow you to talk, mess up your thinking, cause flutters, breathing responses and nervousness.
    You may be so struck by someone at a distance and you become afraid. If they speak to you, you may be frozen and cant respond and start mumbling wondering why you responded that way. It just slays.


    42 years later I am still with my FIRST SIGHT LOVE
    My LOVE had to grow. It was reciprocated allowed and it grew.

    Did you know what you were looking 4 in a wife.

    Thank you for posting, HODEE! I was beginning to think I was the only one. And, your description was almost exactly what I experienced. I have only experienced "love at first sight once". I have been taken by the experience of seeing or meeting very attractive men before, but not like this.

    Like you said, I was frozen, he wouldn't stop staring at me, and I couldn't break the eye contact. I was scared. I thought he could see right through me. I couldn't move. It was my first day on the job and from the first time I saw him I was rendered useless the rest of the day. I can still remember the trembling I felt. And, it wasn't lust at all. It was a connection through his eyes, that was "familiar".

    The oddest part about it was we had met a year prior, but I completely ignored him, because he was with a white woman. We were actually introduced, but I paid no attention to him at all. But then he reminded me of the incident. He remembered how my hair was longer, he recounted exactly what I was wearing and who I was with. He said everyone called me the new girl in town. He couldn't believe I didn't remember him. But, I did remember being introduced to a "brothér" with a white girl.

    I was so afraid of the feeling, it took me another year to let him in my life. We stayed platonic friends. He cut my grass, but I never let him in my house. The feeling was so strong it frightened me to the core of my soul.
