    And does it ever come back to you?
    Are you talking about the kind of love that happens between a man and a woman?

    Why do you call love 'true love'?

    Is there a 'false love'?

    I understand where you coming from. Love to me is complicated in the sense that it can come in many forms. Love can come back yes, but with hard work and patience. No love is the same.
    That's right! perhaps every single one has an own imagination of true love? So true love exists, but in many forms for many different views?

    No. It's a really cheesy concept created by Hollywood film makers to help sell their films. It plays no part in the real world. Ask anyone who has been married for a few months.

    married couples aren't the best sort of people to ask really. I mean, many have claimed that they are each others true love and people still show that they love each other despite being married for so long.

    Yes I believe it exists though you don't feel it instantly, it grows and develops over time.

    I agree, Love at first sight is probably just based on physical attraction not personality

    Love at first sight is exactly what it says, except it would be more correct to call it infatuation at first sight. An overly positive experience from the hormones and chemicals released into your body, in response to a person matching a fictitious character your subconscious has put together.

    Personality then, as you pointed out has absolutely no influence on this reaction. Except for a few clauses. You got to know each other as pen pals (never physically seeing each other until that point). Clause 2 somebody you know has been telling you everything about this person, which can be awkward if it turns out to be their partner and the experience is mutual. :ninja:
