    dots"Love at First Sight"dots

    Buttercup and Westly, Romeo and Juliet, and countless other literary lovers are examples of “love at first sight”, but are they true portrayals? When in real life does a person come across somebody else and because of one look promise to be together and in love forever? If that happened wouldn’t people everywhere be falling in love easier and staying together, wouldn’t the rate of singles be lower? A lot of the time people are looking back at their first look and because they still love/ or are together with that person claim its “love at first sight”. Doing this further discredits this whole “love at first sight” claim because they are adding the love they feel now to however they felt at the first look.
    Very often the only place someone can find a true and honest “love at first sight” would be in the literary works. Like in the Romeo and Juliet case, though they were only 13/16, which brings up another question all together. Shakespeare wrote the first look between them as how he sees “love at first sight”. Also the one thinks about it wasn’t the first line between them:
    “If I profane with my unworthiest hand”

    and then from there they talk about touching and kissing? Wouldn’t that more correctly show lust not love? Then there is Buttercup and Westly; sure Westly loved her from first sight, but Buttercup waits till The Countess looks at Westly. In this case of “love at first sight” its only half true, considering only one person is inflicted with the phenomenon. So in theory even literary works weren’t that accurate when it came to this simple phrase.

    My own experiences have also lent an ear in discrediting “Love at first sight”. In total I have had 2 boyfriends. My first one I’d known since grade 4, and in total only lasted 6 months. There were never the first look sparks, it was more of a convience; someone I trusted. My other boyfriend, who I’ve been with for 1 yr and ½ roughly, once again there were no immediate sparks, we didn’t even date till the 3rd meeting. So with all this evidence I can say that there is no true and pure “love at first sight” but a mixture infused with lust, and sometimes convenience.

      Well i understand where you are coming from and what you're trying to say here....but i do believe that there is truely a "Love at first sight". I have felt that way before about a guy that i met, and the second i saw him i got this feeling, the feeling of love, much deeper than anything i have felt before. It's different for everybody....maybe some dont feel "Love" until later on in the relationship, and others feel it in a split second. You do have a good point though and you can back it up with facts...so i guess we have different opinions on this....good work though.
