Do you believe in love at first sight? I'm feeling lost and desperate, and wonder if my soul mate is out there to be found.
"Love at first sight" is usually lust. Which is fine, as long as you don't get it twisted and think
it's something it isn't. I don't believe in a "soulmate". I also don't think we always meet "the one".
Relationships are transitory. It's rare when humans mate for life.
Be open to the possibilities. You might not meet "Mr. Right", but you could meet
several "Mr. Right-now(s)".
I believe in attraction at first sight. I don’t believe in soul mates as far as destiny. I do believe in personality mates which would be like a soul mate. But I believe there are multiple possibilities, not just one or “the one.”
I think some people get really lucky and meet someone likeminded. Some people are easily pleased and get along with people and could be happy with different people. Some people just work really hard at staying together and make it work by not giving up.
No, such a thing does not exist. And that's a good thing.
Love comes in stages: from meeting a person, getting to know them, learning about (and from) them, and just plain old feeling comfortabvle with them. And then one day it starts out like a usual date, and then deep down you've both decided to take it to the next level. And then it's like a revelation: things ar different that next second than they were the second before.
Love at first sight? How could that even happen? Love would be a shallow thing indeed if syuch a thing were possible.
Meeting someone and being attracted to them on the first meeting is telling but true love requires trust and that only comes with time. But the attraction is a source to use to build a relationship on. My thoughs are that true love involves completing the "triangle: body-heart-mind" (in not so many words). Once your interest can fulfill all three points (once you get to know their charachter and trust them) your world will truly be turned upside down. Then vulnerability comes into play. You must put yourself out there trusting they will too as either of you can leave at any time if you choose. But if you choose to stay with each other, that relationship could withstand time, and that's very "soulmate" like, a deep vulnerable intimate trusting relationship where you can't live without each other body-heart-mind. Does it exist, absolutely! But a word of caution, in my humble opinion based on my experiences, love is not enough.
I do and the biggest reason i think is that love at first sight is to a degree genetic. in theory we all have perfect genetic matchs in the gene pool with us. and on the rare and i mean rare chance you find that person you click. now the real world gets involved. you might be too young or in a committed relationship already and aren't aware of. well thats what i beleive and i have been an incurable romantic all my life.
