Do you believe in true love? What about love at first sight?

  • No such thing. Attraction at first sight, yes. But love? Doubtful. Love takes time to build.
  • What we know as "love at first sight" doesn't really exist, since many times, people often confuse attraction as love. Love has to happen over time. Do I believe in true love. I don't know. Sometimes, what we feel as love might not be what it is.
  • I believe in true love. I've been happily married since 1964. We still love being together and sharing new 'adventures'. I do not believe in love at first sight. Although I have felt immediate attraction to some people, in getting to know them it didn't always turn out to be a person I could like or love. I think communication is the big key to "true love". Learn to ask questions and find out what the person you're interested in values. Share your feelings and listen carefully to theirs. If these things are compatible and you can openly share with each other, you have a good shot at true love.

  • Yes, I believe in true love, but in order to experience it we must first know what it is.

    This is how we know what love is: Jesus Christ laid down his life for us.
    And we ought to lay down our lives for our brothers
    . I John 3:16
  • I don't believe in true love because from my experience, it doesn't exist. I also don't believe in love at first sight. To truly love someone, I have to know the person, I mean truly know the person. How can I say I'm in love with someone when I don't know anything about him.
  • What exactly constitutes "true love?" From my perspective, love takes a great deal of time and effort to grow and express it's potential (of what love really can be) between the people involved. I think it's entirely possible to love multiple people (romantically) at the same time and equally, because everyone is different to a certain extent and you're sharing in their difference, of what they give to you and you to them. Love, ultimately, is not simply a feeling, it is a way of living and knowing someone other than yourself and what that brings to your own life, no matter the type of relationship. That said, I absolutely do not believe in love at first sight. I think it's possible to be attracted to someone upon first meeting them, but that's not love; it may lead to the idea of "potential love," but it's not yet actual love. Love, I think, grows out of the experience of "knowing" another person, something you can never completely fulfill (because our minds are disconnected from our beloved's). Over time, as you share more of yourself and they of themselves, your mutual compassion, respect, care, sharing (mindfully and bodily) all attribute to what love has the potential to become. Love is a mutual experience; it grows from our connections with others and teaches us about ourselves. There's more I wish I could say but I can't find the wording right now....
  • Уай нот. Меня любили. Я любила. С одним была взаимность афигенная - но не было любви, так, дружба. С удовольствием влюблюсь в кого-нибудь:) Но только чтобы не как в том анекдоте: "брак - это сосуществование двух личностей, каждая из которых считает другую своим домашним животным".
  • а я верю...только в последне время сомневаюсь в ее существовании...но продолжаю верить...
  • Yes to both questions!
