Love at First Sight

3 years, 7 months ago

Does it exist?
Why you think that?

I for one believe it does exist.
I believe this because I believe to have experienced it.

To be honest anytime I hear people start using brainscans to describe persons’ behavior I want to stop listening. Our brains react to the situation, the situation is controlled by the persons invovled. Also, the brain is still a vastly unexplored and misunderstood machine. I doubt you can make many conclusions (especially conclusions concerning ‘love at first sight’) by scanning it.

I think….I think people confuse what love really is with what THEY think it is. And while all things are based on perceptions and relativity, etc…I think SOME things…even…well, even intangible but somehow very concrete (until shattered) emotions, like love, are FACTS…and that no matter WHAT the people experiencing said feelings THINK those feelings are, sometimes, they REALLY just are NOT love.

KWIM?
