    Experienced it, but it came with a powerful sense of "This will end in tears" - which it did

    No! Love is based on knowledge. It's not possible at first sight

    Lust at first sight which may lead to love is though

    I believe in "Lust at first sight" and "Fantasy at first sight"
    but love is something that is earned slowly overtime. Most of what people call love at first sight is simply casting a stranger in a romantic fantasy before he has even auditioned for the part.

    Well it happened to me at a gay bar. I saw this guy and immediately knew I wanted him, something I never do, not being aggressive like that, but that night I was. Struck by the thunderbolt and unable to keep my eyes off him.

    Got him into my bed that very night, and the next morning I still couldn't believe this beautiful hunk was lying naked next to me. I fell for him totally, a lovely and wonderful man in more ways than one, as I was to learn in the months ahead.

    We stayed together for a year, until he dumped me for another guy (not surprising, since I'm not very attractive or desirable). We still remain friends, now years later, and he still hasn't settled down, having gone on to other guys since the one he left me for.

    Love at first sight is possible; it's the outcome I doubt! LOL!

    Don't believe in it. Unless you're really horny and desperate, then perhaps it works on some.

    But that body better be attached to a wonderful mind.

    LOL I can relate.

    It happen a few years ago to me.

    I thought it was Love at first sight... we got along so well and was one of the best dates I ever had. We both were floating on clouds from mutual attraction and had similar interest and morals. Nervous around each other and getting lost in each others eyes.

    What went wrong?

    He was intimidated by me due to his own insecurities. He was afraid of the age difference and thought perhaps I couldn't be seriously into him, because I was so young. Eventually he admitted to being wrong. (I just turned 23 1/2 yo at the time and he was 37)

    Eventually we postpone dating due to him relocating to Chicago. It crushed my little heart because I thought he was the "one". icon_cry.gificon_sad.gificon_twisted.gif

    We are still friends, but I matured since then and realize Love at first sight was only a fiction of my imagination. Love develops over time... not in a few secs/mins.

    i don't believe in love at first sight. Maybe great attraction or a serious crush. but love is much deeper than that and requires time and work

    I do believe in destiny. I met my mate during a once in two-years trip to a gay bar and he seldom hung out in this bar. And no he was not online at all because he was too busy working. The probability of our paths crossing was very small. That's not love at first sight though, I believe your destiny is not revealed easily to you if you haven't done the homework.

    Yes and no actually. After a few dates yes. But at first glance it would be lust.

    I was 20 and he was 33 . . .

    We rode horses made of sticks . . .

    He wore black and I wore white . . .

    He would always win the fight. . .

    Bang bang, I hit the ground
    Bang bang, that awful sound
    Bang bang, my baby SHOTME DOWN

    I agree.. Lust at first sight happens all the time.. love takes a little longer but can happen pretty quickly if there is chemistry and a connection...

    It happened to me once. I still think about him. He was much older but the best kisser and sweetest man I have ever met. Unfortunately, he was married.

    Nope.

    There's LUST AT FIRST SIGHT. Even INFATUATION AT FIRST SIGHT.

    But LOVE AT FIRST SIGHT? Not a chance. Not real love anyway.

    Yeah in "DREAMLAND" but not in the "Real World". Real love is something that developes and blossoms in to a beautiful flower. Like the perfect RED ROSE!.icon_biggrin.gif

    I didn't think it was possible, but, now I'm not so sure. This is the deal. I met this guy (Kevin) a couple of weeks ago and we have had a few dates. We get on good and their may be something there. Last night I was in the supermarket and in the pet food isle there he was getting dog food. We talked for a few minutes and as neither of us had any plans for the evening I asked him over to my place for a little cook out. The evening went along great and as we were cleaning up he leaned over the table and kissed me. Then I kissed him back. One thing led to another and lets say that things didn't get cleaned up last night. My point is; it would be very easy to fall in love with him. He's everthing I like in a man. He has a good job, he's x-military, takes good care of himself, he's sweet and caring, love dogs and muscle cars and a lot more. So how could I not fall for him. icon_biggrin.gif

    Great situation above me right here, KScott6671. Nice! I hope something really good and long term comes of it for you. I have a similar situation so I know just how you feel.......mine originated right here on R.J. So I guess love at first sight can happen - or at least love after a period of intensely good times / conversations with someone very, very special ....... even if it isn't at first sight.

    I suppose I could believe in "Love at first sight"

    I haven't experienced that sensation yet, and I would probably adopt a cynical standpoint to say it's lust; however, I think I could be hopeful that it may happen.
