Love at First Sight – The Real Truth

Love at First Sight – The Real Truth

By: Mihran “Mino”

Do you believe in love at first sight? Many people have varying degrees of acceptance when it comes to this kind of love because, quite frankly,  it’s rather shallow. But what does one feel when they experience this? Matt Preston reveals the truth.

 

As cliché as love at first sight may sound, it’s truly an experience of a lifetime.

Falling in love in an instant

I remember the first time I experienced love at first sight.

I was in my eighth grade, just a little boy sitting in an audience, watching a theatrical play at an interschool competition.

I was mildly fascinated, look at all the new faces in the crowd, from different schools. As I scanned the full hall, my eyes saw a girl I had never seen before.

She was sitting a couple of seats to my left, and she was beautiful, divine.

Barely did I see her face for a few seconds and my world stopped for a moment, and everything blurred into oblivion, everything but her beautiful face.

A moment later, she turned towards me and looked back at me. Our eyes met and at that moment, in an instant beyond time frames, I came face to face with a new emotion.

It was overwhelming in all senses of the word.

My stomach jolted and twisted in coils and I wanted to throw up. My body heated up instantly like I was experiencing spontaneous human combustion, and I felt dizzy and numb.

But yet, with all these horrible emotions flowing through me, I felt deliriously happy. And I felt so light, like I could fly, no, like I could just turn into mist and poof!

 

When our eyes met

Our eyes met for what seemed like eternity, or perhaps just a second or two in reality, and I just had to look away. I don’t know why, but if I had stared any longer I would have thrown up [Read: The secret behind the first glance]. It was a perfect blend of ecstasy and fear. My adrenalin was pumping and my heart was beating so hard I could feel my tongue vibrating in sync.

Within moments, I realized I was addicted to her. I just had to look back at her and stare at that beautiful face. I couldn’t help thinking God must have been high when he created her. She was beyond an inspiration.

I kept glancing at her nervously, taking in as much of her as I could, but it was never enough. I was craving to see her face, like a man gasping for air at a high altitude. And every now and then, when our eyes met, I had a relapse of stomach jolts and intoxication. [Read: Law of attraction in love]

This happened back and forth for almost an hour, and with each passing minute, I was drawn deeper and deeper into this experience.

 

 

What happened next?

Well, love at first sight was a good start. But falling in love immediately also makes you lose your senses. I tried talking to her that day, but I was a nervous wreck.

She turned me down, and I never did see her ever again [Read: What to talk about on a date]. But that first memory of experiencing love was so intense that I can still visualize it like it happened just yesterday, even though that incident probably took place close to two decades ago. [Read: Short loves stories]

But now I know why I experienced such emotions and felt that way towards that girl. Frankly, it wasn’t my fault, because there’s more to love at first sight than meets the eye!

Evolution and love at first sight

Over the course of human evolution, we’ve progressed and evolved to become better at a few things that really matter. We’ve learnt to eat, procreate and survive.

And there are a lot of complex processes that subconsciously set things into motion when these three things that really matter enter the picture. When it comes to procreation, evolution has taught us how to fall in love, get sexually excited by someone, and desire someone passionately. [Read: The meaning of love]

Falling in love at first sight

All of us have created a subconscious mental image of our potential partner. When we walk into a room, without really realizing it, you’ll find yourself liking a few potential partners and not bothering with a few.

And at times, a potential partner whom you are attracted to may start warming up to you or get attracted to you too. So does love at first sight work? It most definitely does!

 

Science playing matchmaker

Not all of us fall in love within seconds. It has been seen in studies that men are more prone to falling in love immediately than women. It seems like men are more stimulated by visual appeal than women. On the other hand, women experience romantic chemistry a lot better than men. [Read: Chemistry in love]

What does that mean? Men know they like a woman the very second they see her. But in the case of women, they usually fall in love with someone after the first conversation.

Kissing secrets, body odor and love

Did you know that your first kiss can affect your chemistry in love too? Studies have shown that the exchange of saliva can also be a test for love. Every time you kiss, genes of major histocompatibility complex [MHC] get exchanged between two people, and if your genes share too many similarities, you might actually get turned off and lose the attraction, says Dr. Claus Weekend at the University of Edinburg.

And it’s not just the kiss, your body odor too can predict whether you will experience love at first sight.

Subconsciously, all of us are drawn to certain scents in our partner’s bodies. Did you get a whiff of true love when you’re rubbing shoulders at a party? You’re definitely going to experience love at first sight that night.

Beyond the science of love

Leaving how science plays matchmaker apart, falling in love or experiencing love at first sight can be a beautiful sensation. While our pheromones, genes and body odors are hard at work in the background, all we experience in our mind are intense highs and delirious moments like a junkie high on coke.

Instead of worrying about whether it’s going to work out or not, leave the soothsaying questions to evolution. If both of you find yourselves getting attracted to each other when you meet for the first time, there’s a very good chance that evolution has handpicked a perfect match.

So watch out for this elusive kind of love. What follows may or may not be perfect, but that first flutter of butterflies in the stomach is truly something that makes falling in love at first sight one of the best experiences of a lifetime!

Did this feature help you better yourself or your relationship?
You can change someone else’s life too!

  1. natasha – India – After completing my Masters in business managment and chartered accountancy, after setting up a printing business with my husband, I took a u turn in life. I started learning photography as a hobby, this is when I realised my true passion is photography. Married to a foodie I took up cooking after marriage and got very interested in it, for me cooking is like meditation, it's a stress buster. In this blog, I want to use photography to express my various interests in life... The idea of blogging and food photography came to me when I got pregnant and was put on bed rest for the initial four months, this is when I started documenting my recipes, during the later months I was only allowed to move around in the house. That is the time I decided to take up food photography. Thus I dedicate this blog to my darling son Kabir, it is all because of him that the blog became a reality. My special thanks to my dearest husband and guinea pig, Siddharth who eats everything I cook with so much love, it's because we got married that I have taken up cooking. A lot of contribution to this blog is by my parents who suggest me recipes, ideas, inspire me everyday. They are also my biggest critic and this help me achieve my idea of excellence. The reason I started documenting recipes was for my sister Ipshita and my sister in law Saloni and so a special thank you to both of you. Why the name "All Izz well"? It's a long story but I need to write it...there is a Bollywood movie called "3 idiots". I love this movie so much I must have seen it a minimum of 100 times ( I have no count, my family thinks so) It is a movie that changed my life. This movie is a comedy movie with many messages. It talks about following you passion in life, I learnt from it, "woh Kama Karoo jisme tumhara passion hai fir Kaam kaam nahi lagega, khel lagega." That I need to do what I love then work would be play for me, u need to be well educated in life not well trained. I so believe in it, I have taken up photography and I love it so much. Though being a chartered accountant, I didn't care to pick up my membership number as I never enjoyed that work. Another thing I learnt from the movie don't run behind success, strive for excellence, if you reach for excellence success will follow. My aim through this blog is excellence, I try to put up whatever I feel is up to the mark of excellence. Now about All Izz well, the protagonist of the movie tells his friends that when ever there is a problem put your hand on your heart and tell your heart " all Izz well", this will give you the strength to face the problem. When I was pregnant, one night I started bleeding heavily, with no doctors on call in the middle of night I wasted a lot of blood, it took us about an hour to get the prescribed medicine, all this time I kept on telling my self " all Izz well, I am going to have the baby." After all the medications and injections bleeding took a month to stop and I had all possible complications, during all this time I kept on telling my self " all Izz well" and slowly slowly every thing fell into place, the doctors where amazed by my recovery, my baby was born full term and 3.5 kgs, I could not believe when the doctor told me his weight in the operation room, first thing I told my self " all Izz well, yeah!" My husband told me I would sleep talk during those difficult days and tell my self " all Izz well, all Izz well...", thus that is why I gave this name to my blog....

Through our blog and social medias pages, we will also aim to bring you the very best recipes and advice to help you and inspire you every step of the way. A little about our name, the Spoiled Bee comes from the desire of protecting our beautiful bees and of course spoiling them! Did you know scientists agree that if all bees were to disappear from the face of the earth, humanity only has about 4 years left to live due to the lack of pollination? That is why we have decided to offer among many other products and ingredients, a range of bee products which also happen to have amazing properties for your body, skin and hair. Now we know you are probably wondering how encouraging the commerce of bee products will help the bee population? Well, over the last few decades, bee products have unfortunately and often rightly been associated with harsh harvesting and mass production to keep up with the growing demand. We will never be doing that in a million (or trillion) years! We make sure that all our bee products are harvested in a sustainable and respectful manner by carefully selecting trusted bee keepers. All the hives are located in flowery fields and forests, away from all modern pollution and chemicals and the beekeepers always make sure our bees have more than enough honey left for winter. The more hives, the more the bee population of the world will thrive once again so please help us help them! Lots of Love The Spoiled Bee Team Xx

  5. Caro – I am a writer of creative fiction and poetry. I recently dipped my toes in the world of blogging..with my blog Pensuality and it was enough to get my feet wet and learn some amazing things, ideas, thoughts, creative expression, spiritual and supernatural ideas and so much more from fellow writers and bloggers. I freely admit I write romance/erotica quite a bit, but with this blog I am going to take some turns around the erotic avenue and broaden my spectrum and focus more on becoming an independent writer while also adding more music and art showing that I am definitely a lover of beauty..in an array of forms. I will still post some sexy material, but I do want to learn and grow as a serious writer. There are misconceptions and stereo types about being a writer of erotica and the genre in general, but I am much more than just a messenger of all things naughty. I have respect for the genre however, and for all ghostwriters. We work hard for not much. I write because it is mu oxygen. I hope to show my meager talent but mostly I love to enjoy creative expeession.Thank you for your visit. I appreciate every blogger who has supported my work. Huggsss xx Caro .. May the passion of the willow's feathered arms softly guide me to a new perception and a firm foundation grafted into the real fairy tale of love.. Caro

My books may be found on Amazon in Kindle and print format, my art in local Ajijic galleries. Hope to see you at my blog.

    I fell in love with my husband at first sight. I was 38 years old and had never been married. Many told me I was looking for an impossibility and that I should settle as they had. I stubbornly held on and when I saw him immediately knew he was the man I would marry. Luckily, he eventually came around to the same thought! Judy

      Judy – I am flattered – wow – I had to share your comments with my parents, they have been married for 43 years – that was also a love at first sight from Piano. It could happen so quickly and love can become stronger and grow. My father tells me the following: He always listen to my mother, compliment here, praise her, speak gently and simple language and honest! WOW

    What an intriguing post. 🙂

  8. Wow. Such helpful facts. Thanks for sharing.
    When a woman truly loves, her passion can beat a man’s. May be that’s because women are more towards the emotional side. Whilst love at first sight is not the forever kind of love. But attraction at first sight plays key role in evolving the ” forever kind of love”.
    thanks again for sharing this 🙂

    I hope soon, A Prince will stand and you will experience it!

  12. 4 year old adult – Hsinchu, Taiwan – When passion and career fail to reach a mutual understanding, then a person like me gets nurtured. A weird guy who is yet to learn to complain about anything but ready to offer a piece of advice to someone in need. I have an innate ability to observe the veiled truth, I see it when nobody expects anyone to watch. I am an unknown identity looking to explore the depths of this world in order to attain a meaning of my presence. I don't know who I am, because my own reactions deceive me sometimes. A responsible but careless, resourceful but crazy, focused but diverted, that is me. Life is my passion over anything else and everything else is secondary for me.
    4 year old adult says:

    I experienced this feeling when I was 18 years old. I asked out the girl that time and what began as a infatuation led to a strong relationship of five years. Unfortunately, her father disagreed with the prospect of taking the relationship to the next level. My heart still has hope, but my mind has given up. This post has been written in a nice way, thanks for sharing 🙂

  13. Baydreamer - Lauren Scott – United States – Welcome to my space where I share my poetry, short memoirs, and anything else that comes to mind. My husband and I have been married for thirty-three years, and not only do we still love each other, but we still like each other too. We have two adult children and I'm grateful that we're still a close family. Our furry family member is Copper, our 80-lb chocolate lab mix, and he sheds and drools a lot, but we love him just the same. I have published two collections of poetry: New Day, New Dreams and Finding a Balance. And my latest book that was published in September of 2021 is a memoir in verse and prose. When you visit, my wish is that you find something to take with you, but that you also find something enticing enough to keep bringing you back. I truly appreciate your visit. Love, Lauren

    Thanks so much for this interesting take on falling in love at first sight, Mino! I do believe it can happen, providing other factors fall into place as others have stated, too. My husband and I met in our late twenties and I do remember that exciting spark. After a month of dating we both confirmed we had fallen in love and six months later, were married.
    In January, we’ll celebrate 26 years, so was it love at first sight? I don’t know, but it did happen quickly.:)

    We both feel that getting married later in life will lead to a better chance of a “forever” marriage and relationship. We both had dated and knew by that time what we wanted in a life partner. Let the early twenties be for dating others and living life so as you get a little older, you know what you want and what you don’t want. I think less divorces would happen if many followed this rule.

    That’s not to say that people who marry young can’t be happy and stay married. My sister is a rare example, 44 years and she and her husband married when they were 20. But I think the percentage is very small.

    My husband is my best friend to this day and we have a daughter, 23, and a son, 19, who are the best. We feel very blessed…

    My parents were married for 67 years when my Mom passed away and Dad is still living and driving around at 95. 🙂 My husband’s parents were married for 38 years before my mother-in-law passed away.

    Anyway, thanks again and I love your photo on your right side bar, very lovely! I hope it was okay calling you Mino, too. Wishing you and yours a very Happy New Year! Lauren

    I guess I am a romantic my friend. so yes I believe it can happen.. Love at first sight… You said “Instead of worrying about whether it’s going to work out or not, leave the soothsaying questions to evolution. If both of you find yourselves getting attracted to each other when you meet for the first time, there’s a very good chance that evolution has handpicked a perfect match.”…

    This is so true.. I do believe in destiny. and our energy bodies recognise each other.. Maybe this is the connection ( that electric shock ) that reverberates between two souls especially when they first meet..

    Like Lauren.. I have been married for a long while.. we celebrate our Ruby Wedding this year.. 🙂

    This was a wonderful read to start off my New Year..
    Happy New Year again my friend.. ‘Mino’ 🙂

      I want to wish for you both of you a vibrant, positive, healthy and fun life together.

At thirty-six I had my first child and now have four adult children (who chronologically could each be my grandchild). They keep me young or add more gray hairs, depending on which child and which day.

    I became more selective as I entered high school, but in grade school I fell in love at first sight with a majority of the boys that came into sight! Unfortunately, most of them could run faster than me. One of the few that didn’t run got blinded (temporarily) when I squeezed a puffball in his face. Young love or infatuation comes and goes so easily.
    I enjoyed this post very much.

I have a ministry called Stand In The Gap where I make silk flower arrangments that are given for free to those sick in the hospital. I love to take photographs of people, places and things, to capture the joys, excitement and sometimes sorrows of life. I like to document my photos with information or historical facts, if possible. Sometimes I take photos in series to tell a story or show different sides of a subject. In my retirement years I would love to travel more, meet new people and photograph all aspects of life. I love to read, sew, make silk flower arrangements,listen to jazz and praise and worship music. I am a follower of Jesus Christ and strive to use the teachings of the Bible in my everyday walk through life. I hope this blog will cover my journey and be a source of inspiration to those who read or view the photos posted. I also made a Wordpress commitment to postaweek in December of 2011, that I wish to continue in the following year. To God the glory! Be Encouraged! Be Blessed!

    This is a great post clearly illustrating another wonderful point upon your range of talents. I do not believe in love at first sight. I do believe in “lust at first sight”. Love has so many layers of complex feelings and thoughts that go so far beyond what the senses can absorb in a single glance. While body language can communicate volumes it is not until the souls, hearts, and minds meet do you consider whether it is true love you are feeling or whether lust has captured your senses. Love at first sight is a fairytale and often ends in heartache because relationships need so much more than love to grow strong and endure the challenges real love demands.

  21. Whether or not it’s love at first sight or simply a ‘definite interest,’ I don’t really know. I met my future husband in biology class and did not particularly like him. I had already made a list of what I wanted in my mate, and he did not meet most of them. Yet, I felt a strong attraction to him that made no sense to me. Did my body know something that my mind didn’t? Over the next few years we dated off and on. I never felt the same ‘interest’ with any other guy I dated. Shortly after I graduated from nursing school Jack asked me to marry him. Without hesitation I accepted. We will be celebrating our 46th wedding anniversary come April.

    Hi Mihrank! You have a great post here. Its a formidable read. You don’t stop until you get to the finish. I feel a little sad that your lovely girl just disappeared. It can pain, can’t it? I think love at first sight can work but one has to make sure. Such love could vanish just as it came; but it can also last. There must be some people who have succeeded and some who have failed. Love is definitely not all that matters. Other factors count. Thank you for this excellent post. Have a great day.
