Throughout human history, however, the concept of Love at First Sight has been lauded in countless stories, plays, books, films and oral traditions. Poets and romantics regard Love at First Sight as an unquestionable truth, and millions of lonely people around the world pray every day that it will happen to them.
So, how do you know if you’ve experienced Love at First Sight? Well, if you have to ask, you probably haven’t. But that doesn’t mean you shouldn’t know the signs so you’re better prepared in case it does happen to you.
The following are three undeniable ways to know you’ve experienced Love at First Sight, and that your feelings for this new person in your life may be more than just simple infatuation. And before you roll your eyes and underestimate the power of romance, be careful . . . Love at First Sight can happen to skeptics, too!
Top Three Ways to Know it’s Love at First Sight
1. You don’t want to rush things
This is an unmistakable indication that the feelings you have aren’t just “Lust at First Sight.” If the first thought in your mind is getting physical, then it probably isn’t love. But if you have an overwhelming urge to get to know the person and take things slowly so they work out, you may be dealing with something much deeper.
2. You see things in them that other people don’t
A person’s attractive physical qualities are something that anyone can see and appreciate, but falling in love with someone means noticing qualities in them that no one else can see. If you find yourself noticing attractive qualities of a new person that your friends are blind to, you may be experiencing Love at First Sight.
3. You want to learn everything you can about them
This is a tricky indicator, because it’s also present in pure infatuation, too . . . so be careful. But if the two previous indicators are present, then this one makes it undoubted that you’ve experienced Love at First Sight.
Falling in love with someone means wanting to know about everything that makes them tick, from their likes and dislikes to their life experiences. Just be willing to learn about them slowly, be understanding, and let Love at First Sight develop into a lifelong romance!
