It's just another monthly game night with your friends. A new person is invited into the mix; no one you've ever met before. But immediately, there's this charged connection. No words are yet spoken. No hands have been shaken, but you feel it. Your eyes can't fall from this person's hold. So you ask yourself: Is this what love at first sight feels like?I've heard of it. This said "connection." Some have told stories of experiencing it on train rides. When you hear nothing but the train riding the tracks and the beating of your heart in your eardrums, while still holding this strangers attention. Some have experienced it in bars/clubs. When the blaring sound from the DJ's speakers can't even interrupt the hold they have on you from across the room.All of this from someone you've never heard speak a word. The sound of their voice is foreign to you. You don't know if their smile even touches their eyes or stalls at their mouth. But somehow, none of that matters; just that moment. That second when your eyes meet theirs and the whole world stops on its axis.
But at what point does this translate into the warm fuzzy feeling that symbolizes love? Once those eyes are met and the moment has passed, does that person still invade your thoughts?I've heard of this "connection." We're strangers though. I've never experienced it in my mid-twenties life span. We've crossed paths, but I was often distracted by his friend, infatuation. Not to say I don't believe in it, but I don't necessarily do either. It's just one of those things, like you had to be there? Well, I'd have to experience it for myself.
So tell me, have you? Do you believe in love at first sight?
