Do you believe in love at first sight? Do you think there has to be that initial spark, or “it” factor when meeting someone for the first time? I certainly think there needs to be some sort of an instantaneous spark, or connection for me to feel like oh shit, this is someone I need to spend more time with. I totally believe in fate, things happen for a reason and people come in and out of your life for a reason. But I also believe it’s up to you to make sure you take advantage of these particular moments.
So what happens when you meet someone and you have all these feelings, and things just click? Do you tell the person you’re like super into them? No. Do you mention that you guys should go out very soon? No. Do you let them know that you had this awe inspiring moment where things seemed to click for you? Fuck no. So what are you supposed to do you might ask? Simple. First, play it cool. You can’t play on that you have felt this spark because you could very easily scare this person you just met away. Remember a relationship that goes from 0-60 goes from 60-0 just as quickly.
Personally, I feel falling hard and falling fast for someone sucks. And let me tell you why, the quicker I fall for someone, the quicker it fizzles out. It’s a tale as old as time. The longer it takes me to fall for someone, the longer our relationship lasts. It’s sad almost. I’d love it for a once if I meet a girl for us to just hit it off and continue on for longer than a month. One night stands are another story. But I just mean when you meet someone have that instant sexual chemistry and attraction, you wish it’d last a bit longer than it usually does.
Falling hard is rough. I feel that if you’re the one that falls first, and it’s hard. You’re almost certainly the one that’s going to end up with the broken heart. At the end of the day we all long for love at first sight. We all hope it exists, because without it, life seems a bit sadder than it should be. Fate plays funny tricks on you. You think you’re supposed to be with person X when you usually end up with person Y. Chemistry, sexual attraction, sparks, whatever you want to call it all play into something you think is true love or love at first sight. At the end of the day, just go with it. Life’s short so you might as well be spontaneous and just go with the flow. Carpe Diem bitches!
