We have heard so much about love, read so much about it and even talked a lot about it too, but sometimes we see how so many ‘beautiful’ relationships end abruptly, and we can’t help but re-think if what those people actually felt was truly love.
So much have been written, even said about ‘love at sight’, a lady sees a man and her heart skips a bit or it starts beating very fast, she feels she has finally seen her ‘Mr Right’ ‘Her knight in shining armour’. But the question is, ‘Is there anything like love at first sight?’ Does it exist, or does it only exists in our imagination? A young man meets a lady for the very first time at a party and he immediately called the lady and said ‘As soon as our eyes met, I fell completely in love with you’. Is that love?
Of course not.
Some people cannot actually distinguish between sexual attraction and love or distinguish between lust and love.
Some people claim to be ‘in love’ to the point that they ‘lost’ their mind, they start acting weird, nothing else matters in their life, simply because they are in love.
Some people have actually outlined some features they want their future partner to possess; big boobs, hazel eyes, big buttocks, pointed nose, slim, straight legs, spotless face, broad chest, tall, handsome, beautiful, black beauty, light complexioned, someone with a good command of English, speaks with a drawl, etc., and the moment they see someone who fits into that picture, they claim they have ‘fallen in love’. But is this love?
Is love at first sight real? Building your relationship on just the looks or physique of your partner is like trying to build a three-storey building and you’re using mud to lay the foundation. The idea of love at first sight appears to be a misnomer since it cannot reasonably be taken literally. This is as a result of the fact that merely seeing someone does not afford you a sufficient window into the nature of the person seen.
