It's absolutely fine to fall in love at first sight; it is possible for one to find a true love by just that one glance, or it could also be a temporary attraction or infatuation. Do you need to know whether he's 'the one' or not? That's something only you can truly tell, but there are a few sure-fire signs that you've met your soul mate.
Your instinct plays the whole game here. You are the one who can judge what little tale your conversations with your significant other tells you.
A few serious questions can help you determine whether you are really in love or if your emotions are just along for the ride. Here are a few questions to ask yourself if you are wondering whether you are in love at first sight or it's just a temporary attraction:
- Is it love or lust?
When it comes to being in a relationship, it is one thing when you are sure about the feelings of a person you are falling for and another thing when you are oscillating between love and physical attraction. Physical attraction or lust is a huge factor, especially between strangers and new sexual partners; so you would want to really sit down and think about whether it's just lust you feel, and not love.
- Am I sure about entering a relationship at this point in time?
You have to ask yourself--are you really the kind of person who falls in love time after time? Well, in this case, you need to be assured of your feelings for the other person. You are not just passing time with that person, but your feelings are important too. Do you think you're going to marry each one of your partners? If so, you may want to second guess your 'falling in love at first sight', this time around.
- Am I willing to accept that I can't see their flaws yet?
Finding little flaws in your partner when it comes to love at first sight is a time taking process because we don't believe it's possible to see a partner's flaws at first sight. Flaws need time to be visible in the eyes of the other and even more time for the other to accept them. That doesn't mean you should give up on your love, but it does mean you should go into a relationship with both eyes open, ready to find out things about them that you might not expect.
- What does he/she feel about me?
You have to know what the other person thinks about you. Do they really need you in their life as a life partner? Although you might not think this is important at first, it's very necessary that both parties are on the same page if they want a healthy relationship. Same thing works in long distance relationship too. If you are truly and deeply in love with that person, a relationship will blossom only if that person is also on the same tangent as you are.
Falling in love feels like heaven, and love at first sight especially is a really nice, whirlwind ride. So ask yourself these questions before you jump into anything too serious!
