It always makes me cringe when people say it was "love at first sight." In my personal experience, I've had someone say that he was in "love" with me the moment he laid eyes on me. I was just weirded out and wanted to run the other way. He was serious about that because he's been stalking me for the past 8 plus months, and says he "loves" me every week to the point where I want to put a restraining order on him. Then again, I'm also appalled at the fact that this stalker is at least 45 years older than me.
All I know is he has a head full of gray hairs and shouldn't be going after someone my age. I only think it's true love at first sight if both parties return the same feelings to each other. If I had a daughter and this creep was doing this to her I would tell him to, "Get Lost."
I think it's all lust, including someone knowing a friend for years, until people really get to personally know the each other and not with other people around for some time. Knowing someone for years then going on an intimate first date is still lust to me. Only if people are serious about each other does it become more than just lust.
Do you believe in "love" at first sight? Have you said this to someone and had them reciprocate it?
What is "lust" and what is "love?"
