We use to tell others about our experiences during our first encounter in love? But I will raise a question here: can you consider love at first sight really a kind of true love? Others might say yes, but for me it depends on the situation and the person concerned with. It exists, but the certainty of a true nature of love there must be observed and carefully judged first within ourselves.

kimberlymanuel,
I think, from a lot of experience in infactuation, that you definately have to get to know someone for a good year and a half to two years to know if you truely love someone. But there are a lot of cases where people fall into infactuation at first sight and end up sticking it out for the rest of their lives so it ends up actually being true love, but it always starts out as infactuation. My fiance JK and I are living proof of that. You could say that it was "love at first sight," but we had to really get over some issues and get to know eachother before we knew it was true love. It took a year and a half to iron out all the kinks, but we could always say that we always loved eachother. But the fact is, we were infactuated in the beginning and just ended up truely loving eachother. Do you get it? Did I help at all?

Love is such a mystical thing, though...It sounds so harsh to say it is just infatuation. We can normalize and define all of our emotional experiences, but really...what is love? Did you read that thread? It was very interesting. I mean, how can you explain fear, anger, lust, friendship? Physiologically? We are creature with spirit, how can we restrict ourselves to defining our emotions through the body?

I always felt that, like Joni Mitchell sang, "love is touching souls." I think you can see someone and be drawn to them and love them suddenly. With time comes patience, understanding, obligation, compatibility. But in the beginning, isn't love about an immediate and overwhelming feeling of connection? Where you feel the world revolving around the one person whose eyes you're looking into?

My dad said he loved my mom the first time he saw her, coming out of a hospital in a body cast during the Vietnam war. Then after that, as he got to know her, he became friends. They married, and with time became companions. But that initial surge, he told me, was the first feeling of love he'd had in 38 years. So who knows? Like God, love works in mysterious ways...:)
