Hot Summer Romance Giveaway Hop from July 18 - 21! Win a free e-book from me and much more!


Ahhh, Love at First Sight. 
Is it real or is it a perception? 

We could scientifically break it down and at the end, decide the logics don’t fit our scenario, but let’s explore my Love at First sight encounter.

Think about love, it’s an intimacy of your soul. The person you are in love with make you feel a physical reaction. Maybe its excitement or sensuality or even a twisting of your nerves because you were unprepared to have such a visceral response.

I don’t know if it was love at first sight but my eyes locked gazes with a man, the one I’m utterly devoted to, and that experience we all read about happened to me. The sounds of the cold fall day and the other people talking faded into a background hum. His eyes, they were alive with personality. I shook his hand and my body physically responded. I knew that the touch of his skin on mine was something I’d never forget.

All the general things we experience with an immediate attraction were there. He was gorgeous, well built, stunning smile, smooth voice and a perfect hair cut but his eyes….I couldn’t stop staring. There was almost a centrifugal force pushing me toward him and I had no control.

We had our first “interlude” that very night and it was perfect. No nervousness, not a bit of self-consciousness, and it was all about us…several times…oh my!

He never left my mind the days after. What was supposed to be just a good time, didn’t end. I wanted him with my heart like no other. Almost four years later, I still have the same response to him and I swear there is no more masculine, handsome man out there. He spoils me, brings me the sweetest little gifts, tells me how beautiful and sexy I am and I love it and him!

My logical conclusion is it may be gripping attraction that grows to a profound love.
My romantic heart’s conclusion, “Oh yeah baby, just like that!”

What about you? Love at First sight or is there a logic to it? Share, tell me. I’m dying to know!

Cassandra said...

To me it's more lust at first sight and love comes later. That may be because I haven't experienced it yet. Who knows? Maybe one day my opinion will change :)

I don't believe in love at first sight I believe in lust and mutual attraction at first sight. I need to get to know someone before it becomes love. Thanks for the chance at this great giveaway and for participating in the hop!

First, so I don't forget: I would like Somer's Rising. It sounds very interesting. The blurb already has me quite curious.

And to answer the love at first sight question...I always thought the answer was a definitive "no" until many years ago when a met a man and our reaction to one another was similar to the one you described. I avoided him for awhile after meeting him because the visceral response freaked me out, but when I went out with him again, WOW. Nothing had changed...well, that's not exactly true. Our feelings had grown more intense. We had our "interlude" - several times and each time was amazing and perfect. From that point on, we were virtually inseparable. I knew when he entered a room of crowded people. It was the same with me. Our love was beautiful and wonderful and frightening. A friend was jealous and did every sneaky think imaginable to tear us apart until it eventually worked. There has never been anything else like my love for this man. I've talked with him since and he says the same about me. SO, yes, love at first sight is possible, but rare.

I have never fallen in love just in like so I'm undecided in the belief of love at first sight.

Thanks for the chance!

I believe in lust at first sight but I think love is something that has to grow as you get to know someone.

Love at first sight, I don't really think that happens, lust at first sight, definitely, If Love really does happen at first sight,those people must have been soul mates. I would have to pick All of Me. Thanks for sharing the awesome giveaways. evamillien at gmail dot com
