Helen Fisher PHD states, “In one survey by Ayala Malach-Pines, PhD, of Ben-Gurion University in Israel, only 11 percent of the 493 respondents said their long-term relationships started that way (as in love at first site). Psychologists say for the rest of us, that the more you interact with a person you like (even slightly), the more you come to regard him as good-looking, smart, and similar to you—unless you discover something that breaks the spell.”
Love is the most powerful human emotion. I believe that if you are shot by Cupid, and find yourself falling in love that very first night you meet, the feelings may be real. Stepping out of yourself and seeing the reality of your situation is a wise choice. Love at first sight can cause fireworks to go off with that first kiss. But remember, fireworks can hurt and burn. I suggest cautiously go forward with your feelings, embracing every emotion, but always make sure your mind and your heart are team mates. Sometimes the heart can be more powerful.
