Sure, lust at first sight is a totally real and tangible thing — that gorgeous guy across the room that makes your heart (and other places) flutter. You want him and he seems to want you, but that doesn’t mean you’re in love. Here are 9 reasons love at first sight doesn’t exist and you should find something else to believe in:
1. IT’S ACTUALLY A TERRIBLE IDEA.
Love is supposed to be emotional and deep-rooted, so believing that you can know the minute you lay eyes on someone that they’re the one meant for you is ridiculous. Think about it. Is anything that lasts really something that happens immediately and without effort? Definitely not.
2. ANYONE WHO SAYS THEY’VE EXPERIENCED IT IS A LIAR.
When your grandparents say their meeting was love at first, tell them to STFU because they’re lying! OK — maybe don’t do that to Grams and Grandpa, but you get the idea, but seriously, it’s basically their generation’s fault that we buy into this BS in the first place. You might be attracted to someone upon seeing them, but you can’t love someone you know absolutely nothing about.
3. LOVE REALLY SHOULDN’T BE DEVELOPED BY “SIGHT.”
Lust after him all day long, but realize that the emotion of love is not rendered through the eyes. Love should take a little time and a considerable amount of actual interaction. If you’re going to love him, you actually need to talk to him.
