I've been watching this film (Only You), and it sparked a question in my mind, do you believe in love at first sight?
When I was younger, I believed that love at first sight was a real thing, that the movies were so right, that it was possible to meet somebody and instantly fall in love with them.
Do I believe it now?
Well in order to answer that question, I need to take a few steps back, to a few years ago:
I was at university, in my first year, and met someone who is seven years older than me. I had only known him for two weeks, but the minute I laid eyes on him, I thought I was in love. The key word here being "thought"! After having only known me for two weeks, he turned around to and said he thought I was too shy for him. He broke it off straight away, and I ended up being upset about the situation for a year.
Thinking back now, I know it's crazy, because I have had a few since then, and with some of them I thought I was in love as well. However, after being in a relationship for a year and a half with my current boyfriend, I know I wasn't in love with any of them.
So here's what I think (and may people will tell you the same thing), you don't technically ever know what love is, or if you are in love, because each time you are with someone, the feeling will be stronger than before, leading you to believe that you were never in love before, and this feeling you have now, must mean that you are.
I think love at first sight is a myth, because love takes a lot of work. Love is built by memories, and people building a life together. Love is not based on the first second that you meet someone.
Anyway, that is my opinion, but please feel free to share yours, I would love to know what you all think!
As Always, Stay Tuned!
