Love at first sight: what’s it?

Many strange things happen in our lives. Strange in the sense, many times they are beyond our imaginations or anticipation. And sometimes we ourselves do a lot of strange things that we don’t expect from ourselves. The actions surprise us quietly. And we get dumped by ourselves. One of such action, I remember, is love at first sight.

The phrase has been mentioned so many times that we don’t get confused with the sense and meaning of the same. We don’t even get deeper to understand the real meaning as everything seems to be pretty clear. A man and a woman come across each other for the first time in their lives, and what happens then? One of them falls in love with the other. Sounds very cute, right?

Sometimes, we come across people who seem to be too cute to us. We feel like loving them. We crave for spending some time with them. Obviously, these feelings are generated in us when we get astounded by the looks and expressions of the same individual. What is it called? Infatuation, crush or Love. I don’t think it should be any of these. This very-short-lived emotion is just the expression of the divine innerness that we have, and nothing else.

Love is defined as one of the kindest and most passionate relationships that demands sacrifice. Can the love that occurs at just a first sight touch the levels of this high spirited definition? Mutual understanding, mutual dedication, respect and caring for each other are the most significant characteristics of a relationship. Is it possible for a bond which is formed without any communication to meet such a huge demand?

Many argue love is blind. It doesn’t have eyes to see differences. I have a term for this blindness, and that is stupidity. I mean, no relationship can be formed without a better sense of communication where both ends up in understanding the choices and needs of each other resulting in making attempts to achieve the same for each other. So please do not debilitate this supreme bond by reducing its grace and divinity.
