At one time or the other, we must have read where people wrote or said during an interview that they fell in love with their partners, be it husband, wife, girlfriend or boyfriend at their very first time setting their eyes on them, this they refer to as Love at First Sight.
Yeah, falling in love with someone can happen in different and diverse ways, and while some would agree that they built their love gradually after meeting or coming in contact with their partners, others say theirs were immediately.
I have fancied some people of the opposite sex the first time I set my eyes on them and sometimes have glanced at them over and over again due to their body structure and looks and even fancied having them as a partner.
This is quite normal for some folks, right?
I recall in my college days a course mate of mine. A lively chap who brings out the fun in everything he did. I can’t tell what got me attracted to him the first time I set my two big and mischievous eyes on him but everything about him was just cool to me.
Anyway, we ended up as friends and even up till today, years after graduating we still talk once in a while as just friends.
I was just a college freshman, who attended all girls’ high school, where all we talked about was boys, boys and more boys, did I mention boys too?
One thing I know, it is possible seeing someone and loving him/her immediately and also seeing someone and disliking them totally for absolutely no reason. Yeah, either of these two could happen.
Love at first sight could be infatuation or the real deal (attraction towards the other person which in time could grow true).
It’s not merely sexual attraction ‘’something must surely draw one closer to someone’’ and it could be anything about the other person.
There is that instant emotion you get when you see someone for the first time, it leaves you awed.
You get all hot and bothered when they are near you. And you feel down or lost when they aren’t closed by. Very heady feeling, too intense can’t quite say you love this person yet, or that you are in love with them.
You know this even if you don’t want to admit it. Part of you just wants to know them, to learn who they are, and how you can be a part of their life.
People with very attractive personalities and nature radiate likable characteristics everywhere they go and these set of people are more likely to be the object of love at first sight.
They tend to be very jovial, laugh a lot, don’t seem to be bothered about what people take too serious and everything works like magic for them without even struggling for it.
In love at first sight, the high value accorded to the other’s external appearance is projected onto internal characteristics. Love at first sight can be fun, risky sometimes misleading however, it can still be love.
Recently, Tom Ford, a fashion designer-turned-director, told PEOPLE and Entertainment Weekly editorial director Jess Cagle, how he’d fallen in love at first sight with his husband Richard Buckley.
“Our eyes locked and within a month we were living together,” he says during an appearance on The Jess Cagle Interview. “We have been together ever since. This December will be 30 years.”
Even after three decades, Ford, 55, can “vividly” remember the first time he met Buckley, who was a fashion journalist at the time. The two were riding in an elevator together — and it didn’t take long for their connection to become clear. By the end of the ride, Ford says he knew he would spend the rest of his life with Buckley.
In the very words of Israel Zangwill– “the only true love is love at first sight; second sight dispels it.”
William Shakespeare in Twelfth Night, “Whoever loves, loves at first sight.”
Carla Bruni, former French first lady, ‘’it was love at first sight and what happened between Nicolas Sarkozy and me was not quick, it was instant’’
‘’Wise men thread, only fools rush in,
‘’I can’t help falling in love with you’’– UB40 Musical band.
Go live your love, Have a great day lovelies.
