Love At First Sight
Love is a complicated matter and many people seem to take it too lightly. Mostly at a young age, physical attraction can lead to infatuation and misguided intentions. When a young couple begin engaging in activities that they are driven towards because of over active hormones, more often than not, they place themselves on a path to a hard, unsatisfying, or at least, a very inconvenient life in the future.
Why Love at first sight is not practical
Okay, I am certain that the romantics will argue that love is not about logic and practicality and I couldn’t agree with your more. Love as a form of reason or motivation has been known to create some of the worse situations a person can find themselves in, for example, the assassination of presidents.
At a young age, when you are most susceptible to the idea of love at first sight, you have no clue what it means to love someone, or what a functional relationship demands of each member. That aside, at this stage in your life, you have no idea of what you want for yourself in the future. Yet, here you are engaging in life changing and life creating activities, without any thoughts to the consequences.
How it should work
Love is a beautiful thing, when expressed correctly with full awareness of life and reality. Love at first sight can be an amazing experience if the two parties involved are conscious, thoughtful people who can discuss the situation honestly and rationally. Sadly this is often not the case, most people pretend to be someone they are not because they believe that their crush would be better attracted to that version of themselves.
Over the years, society has found many ways of making discussions about sexuality and relationships, somewhat taboo. As a result, many young people find themselves engaging in these activities without any guidance other than that of their natural desires. This is dangerous, in our attempts to discourage these activities among young people, we have made it likely for them to make huge mistakes due to lack of proper guidance and instruction.
So I agree, love at first sight is a wonderful thing, however, more focus should be placed on understanding what life is about and how our decisions can affect our future happiness. With the right approach, each of us can enjoy a long, happy, fulfilling life with the person of our dreams.

Well I use to believe that love couldn't be made at first sight. But yet now today I do think it happens. I will now share what I think love means.
Love is affection, devotion, passion, desire, warmth, respect or loyalty. You choose. It doesn't really matter which one because they are all forms of love. Some are powerful and demand attention while others are more subtle and just below the surface. In recent years, love has drifted from these subtle levels to the more noticeable ones, namely passion. In my opinion, our society downplays the real necessity for genuine affection. By this I mean that we, as a society, spend so much time focusing on only one level of love (passion) that we tend to neglect and not recognize the need for…show more content…
By this I mean to share one's life, feelings, and downfalls, not just one's personal property. Sharing is being honest about yourself and allowing the other person involved in the relationship to really get to know who you really are. It takes more strength and courage to be able to share in a relationship. It has been my experience (which hasn't been that long) that sharing keeps the relationship growing. Not only do you share life experiences, both new and old, but also you learn to communicate.
Communication is a very important aspect of sharing. Just being able to communicate your problems or solutions with each other is a step in the right direction to a loving relationship. So many marriages or friendships in recent years have ended simply because the couple could not communicate and share their feelings. Sharing is not an easy thing to do, but it is fundamental to the success of a relationship.
Love is compassion. Compassion is being able to care about the feelings of another. It is understanding and listening to the loved one's needs and desire's. To me, in order to have compassion one must first feel empathy towards another person. Compassion and empathy go hand in hand. They are the state of being ultimately concerned about the health and welfare of another person.
Love is faith. This has to be the most difficult form of love to conquer. Most of the time when people discuss faith they are referring to the relationship
