Do You Believe in “Love at First Sight?”


I got asked this yesterday and I’m really torn on how to answer it. In some ways I do, but I’m also still basically a child. I know more about politics and history than love.

My boyfriend is an amazing person. He cooks and doesn’t suck, cleans, and treats me so well. I adore him very much, and I honestly can see us getting married one day. But love at first sight? Hell no. Sorry babe. We knew each other for about a year before we got together and it wasn’t until I saw the genuine joy when he saw me dress up for him, or even the excited tone when I asked him how his day went. I’m sure that those are the moments that make you fall in love.

Even people who at first glance are the 11/10 type I don’t really find I’m falling for. The real smiles and asking if I want to share their fries are what really speaks to me. So I guess in a way that’s a “first sight”, right?

I do however believe in “true love”. I’m such a sucker and want to believe in that with all my heart! I feel the heart just knows ya know?

“I hope you know that every time I tell you to get home safe, stay warm, have a good day, or sleep well what I am really saying is I love you. I love you so damn much that it is starting to steal other words’ meanings.” — Open 365 on Tumblr and the most accurate description of me showing affection.

Thanks for reading!
