What is love at first sight like?Watch
The true means to gauge if someone genuinely cares about and respects you, apparently is after approximately 6 months, once the initial 'high' of attraction wears off on their brain. If you're still together after 6 months, talking, and enjoying each others' company... then you know it is probably real.
It can't be their personality, first of all.
It's generally best described by a smooth continuumm between infatuation and love. Nobody really knows love at first sight but if after an extended period of time an initial infatuation develops into a deeper love, people will describe it as such, since there wasn't a break in the strong feeling.
I am starting to think there is something wrong with me
Wasn't exactly love at 'first' sight with my boyfriend; I literally bumped into him at work, and we realised we had seen each other, though never spoken, when he visited one of my previous workplaces. This time, though, it was more than recognition; something just felt immediately right between us and, even as one who can be more practical than romantic, he said he knew, too. Three days later we had our first, and second, dates, after about a total of 4 hours chat.
When I was house-hunting for my first property, so many people told me you just know when you've found the right one, and it was true. I looked at places that I really liked, then walked into one and immediately knew I'd found home. I said this to a friend in the same situation who told me she was keen on a flat; I replied that she didn't sound totally convinced and a week later she phoned to say I was right and she'd found the house for her.
Why can't it be like that with a person? When I bumped into this guy at work we could have just laughed it off and gone our separate ways. We didn't have to continue the conversation, but we did because we both wanted to know more about each other, so it was much more than physical or sexual attraction. We talked again later in the week, went out for 2 'dates' the next day, and about 12 hours in his company, over 4 days, just confirmed what I knew from the start, that I'd found the one. You can't describe it, because you don't actually think the words "yes, this is him/her"; it's a feeling, and you just know.
