According to the word of Leigh Fallon, Carrier of the Mark he said; ―This is going to sound crazy, but… from the moment I first set eyes on you I haven’t been able to stop thinking about you.‖
There are lots of argument about love at first sight, some believe in it while some see it as an impossible thing, one thing I’ve learnt about lasting relationship is the fact that; romantic love consists not merely of attraction to external appearance, which is the basis of sexual desire, but also of knowing the agent’s character traits, such as kindness, honesty, wisdom and a sense of humor. Such knowledge cannot be present at first sight, as it requires familiarity and common history.
Love does not merely consist of feelings; rather, it essentially involves activities, and these cannot be exercised at first sight. In this regard, we may distinguish between action readiness and behavioral manifestation. Action readiness, rather than actual behavior, underlies emotions. There are many instances of action readiness that are not translated into actual behavior because of moral considerations, actual cost, or other practical and normative concerns.
You can crush on someone at first sight, you can like someone at first sight but falling in love completely at first sight is mostly impossible. Intense love is developed over time; it depends on certain consideration and not mere attractiveness. I don’t believe you love me until you’ve seen beyond my physique, you’ve seen my good side and bad side yet you stay with me and keep up with the relationship.
This not about romantic relationship alone, even in friendships, you develop the intimacy over time, you place individual in their rightful place as things begin to unfold. No doubt about it, we have successful marriages built on ―love at first sight‖ but if they will be genuine, you’ll understand that; the love was built over time.
