Tuesday’s Love Jones – Do You Believe in Love at First Sight?


Since the beginning of time people have had many notions on the topic. Some think it’s very possible to fall in love at first sight, while to others, think it’s utterly ridiculous. Studies have once shown that a person can literally fall in love in about a fifth of a second.

One cannot fall in love at first sight without a good state of mind, so of course, the study was based on the psychological healthy state of one’s mind. During the official study some people fell in love at first sight because they believe love exists and were ready to fall in love. While it was difficult for others to believe in falling in love at first sight. 

Surprisingly, it was discovered that men have the tendency to fall in love at first sight way more than women.  This is due to physical attractiveness factor. It is possible for a man to fall in love at first sight because the more he looks at a woman for the first time, the more he will be interested in her.

But this is not always true for a woman. Women tend to fall in love while in a relationship. A woman can like a man’s appearance, conversation and even shivery, but will not always fall in love at that instant.  For women, when a relationship develops, she then tends to fall in love and is committed.

Apart from scientific researches, is it really possible to feel love at first sight or is it LUST at first sight the people are experiencing. So, let’s look at the definition of love and lust…

Love and lust seem to look pretty similar, but strike different actions and reactions. Lust can be very deceptive and most people develop it easily thinking they have found utmost chemistry with someone they are meeting for the first time. Most people are drawn to outward appearance and not considering other relevant factors that can make a relationship successful.  Those traits cannot be seen outside, they are inbuilt virtues.

The truest test of love happens over time and tends to endure, shines and grows with increased interest, unlike lust which have the ability to fade away, shrinks and disappear within a short period of time.

As for me, personally, I will admit that I once truly did believe in love at first sight.

I have always loved love and may have gotten a little whimsical in my thoughts about how love took place in the beginning of a relationship, but as I’ve gotten older and wiser, I tend to believe that LUST at first sight is an immediate action and LOVE comes clearer the more you get to know a person.
