Heads or Tails


This week's Heads or Tails theme is Love. You can see more Heads or Tails participants over at Barb's at Skittles Place.

Do you believe in Love at first sight? Reading blogs over this past year I have read where many bloggers have said they fell in love with their spouse the very moment they met. When you stop and think about this, how could anyone fall madly in love with another person the very second they meet them. You don't know this person! For all you know this person could be some type of criminal.

I have fallen in love at first sight 6 times. The first time was when I first saw my son 37 years ago, then my daughter 35 years ago. More recently was with my three grandchildren.

This past Saturday I experienced this same phenomena again. The very second I laid eyes on Caramia I was madly in love. She is grandbaby #4.

sure. i believe in love at first sight ... i mean romantic love, the kind of love that can end up in marriage. but the question should be - can you stay in love after love at first sight, after getting to know each other before the love ends up in marriage?

you have a cute grandbaby!

Charlotte, Sure I believe in romantic love at first sight too. But I also believe lust. I think many people confuse love at first sight with lust.

"Love at first sight" Yeah romantic love...lasting love...not to sure about that....but instant love at the sight of my children being born...yes now there is love at first sight....

I fell in love when I laid my eyes on someone and believe me it wasn't all it was to be.
After getting to know the person the only word I can say now is "Yuk" glad it didn't be come any thing.

Now my hubby said when he first met me it was love at first sight and when I saw my boys it was love at first sight.

ah I did not believe in love at first sight, after reading this, looks like I need to rethink my stance :)

Well I know that LOVE at FIRST SIGHT is sometimes crazy but you know i believe that about my hubby!! I still remember the first time that i saw him standing there and thought..WOW what a hunk!! I still think of him like that 44 years later. I have been blessed and I know it. I am also like you (surprised) when I first saw my grandbabies and my children be born i was definitely in LOVE instantly!!

Oh she's precious!

I didn't fall in love with my husband at first site, but it didn't take long. But I was in love with my daughters from the second I saw them on the screen (ultrasounds). And I fall more in love with them everyday. I love being a mom!

I don't believe in love at first sight either except in the circumstances you mentioned. (You gave me goosebumps!)

Yeah, I kinda do believe in love at first sight. Sounds like there are good reasons to do so. Congrats on the new little one. What a beautiful baby!

Robyn Jones said...

Your precious grandbaby is just beautiful! I know what you mean about falling madly in love. I feel the same way about mine! How are Mom and baby doing, and how is little Carson? I know it must have been hard for you to leave them. How far do you live from them? I'm 2.5 hours from mine, and thats too far! lol

You are very blessed, Linda.

Congratulations on your new grandbaby!

I have to agree with you - I'm not sure that I believe in love at first sight - maybe lust or attraction, but you can't possibly know that you are 'in love'.

Jen said...

I was going to answer no but after reading your post, I had a change of heart. Yes, in that same context I believe in love at first sight. Seeing my son for the first time was a memorable moment and I'm thankful for each day I lay eyes on him. A great blessing in my life.
