6 Reasons Why Love at First Sight is Fake
Movies and books often glorify the concept of love at first sight, and even before we understand and realize what love actually feels like, we think that the feeling of spotting someone first time and feeling a little funny inside is true love. Well, that’s not really the case. That funny feeling inside needs to be told to relax a little, because love doesn’t happen just like that. Yes, it’s true that we start to fancy someone right since the moment we see them for the first time, but that necessarily does not mean love. Here are some of the reasons why love at first sight is actually fake.
1. It’s the setting, not the person
In a lot of situations, the setting or the ambiance in which you meet or see a person is so romantic or fantasy filled, that you start to feel everything is perfect. However, the truth is that some settings such as friends’ weddings, parties put you in a mental zone where you want to celebrate that happy moment with someone special. And when you see someone attractive in such a setting, you think that this is it. And that’s it meant to be. In other words, the setting or the environment fools you. So technically, the setting just led you to think that way, but that doesn’t mean you really are in love.
2. You’re conditioned that way
As mentioned before, the setting of the chance encounter between you and your supposed ‘love’ makes you feel that you’re in love. And part of the reason why you get fooled like this, or think this way, is because of the way you have been conditioned, seeing love at first sight work in films and books and TV shows. Truth be told; it may work in fiction, but doesn’t work in real life.
3. You’ve fallen for the appearance
If just seeing the person has made you feel that this is perfect love, then you have technically only fallen for that person’s physical attributes and nothing more. You need to realize and understand that love means a lot more than just being with someone good looking and attractive. You need to see that person in a less-than-perfect attire as well, and still feel the same way to know that he’s the one you love really.
