Love at First Sight

Following Valentine's Day, I wonder

Do you believe in love at first sight? 

I can't say that I really know the answer to this question; but I would venture to say "No".

I think what happens at first sight is infatuation and that can definitely lead to love.  But I question whether it happens instantly.  To really love someone, you need to know who they are. 

When I first met my husband, I thought I was in love. He was tall, dark and handsome, kind of looked like Elvis Presley to me.  On our first date, we went to my prom and danced all night; then afterwards we ate pizza with my  brother and his date.  At the end of the night, he kissed me at the door.  I can tell you I thought I was in love.  I was in love with how he made me feel, not who he was.  I didn't even know him. 

We have been married for over 48 years now and I can tell you that I do love this man.  I love my husband for who he is.  He is a man of integrity, kind, caring, supportive, and a good provider.  He is my friend and I can trust him to be there for me.

What do you think about love at first sight?   I would love to hear your comments.
