Love At First Sight - My Experience.

Do you believe in love at first sight? Many people
have varying degrees of acceptance when it comes to
this kind of love because, quite frankly, it's rather
shallow. But what does one feel when they
experience this? Matt Preston reveals the truth.
As cliché as love at first sight may sound, it's truly an
experience of a lifetime.
Falling in love in an instant
I remember the first time I experienced love at first

I was ten, just a little boy sitting in an
audience, watching a theatrical play at an inter-
school competition.
I was mildly fascinated, look at all the new faces in
the crowd, from different schools. As I scanned the
full hall, my eyes saw a girl I had never seen before.
She was sitting a couple of seats to my left, and she
was beautiful, divine.
Barely did I see her face for a few seconds and my
world stopped for a moment, and everything blurred
into oblivion, everything but her beautiful face.
A moment later, she turned towards me and looked
back at me. Our eyes met and at that moment, in an
instant beyond time frames, I came face to face with
a new emotion.
It was overwhelming in all senses of the word.
My stomach jolted and twisted in coils and I wanted
to throw up. My body heated up instantly like I was
experiencing spontaneous human combustion, and I
felt dizzy and numb.
But yet, with all these horrible emotions flowing
through me, I felt deliriously happy. And I felt so
light, like I could fly;No, like I could just turn into mist
and poof!

When our eyes met
Our eyes met for what seemed like eternity, or
perhaps just a second or two in reality, and I just had
to look away. I don't know why, but if I had stared
any longer I would have thrown up. It was a perfect
blend of ecstasy and fear. My adrenalin was pumping
and my heart was beating so hard I could feel my
tongue vibrating in sync.
Within moments, I realized I was addicted to her. I
just had to look back at her and stare at that
beautiful face. I couldn't help thinking God must
have been high when he created her. She was
beyond an inspiration.
I kept glancing at her nervously, taking in as much of
her as I could, but it was never enough. I was craving
to see her face, like a man gasping for air at a high
altitude. And every now and then, when our eyes
met, I had a relapse of stomach jolts and intoxication.
This happened back and forth for almost an hour, and
with each passing minute, I was drawn deeper and
deeper into this experience.
What happened next?
Well, love at first sight was a good start. But falling in
love immediately also makes you lose your senses. I
tried talking to her that day, but I was a nervous
She turned me down, and I never did see her ever
again. But that first memory of experiencing love was
so intense that I can still visualise it like it happened
just yesterday,even though that incident probably
took place close to two decades ago.

But now I know why I experienced such emotions and
felt that way towards that girl. Frankly, it wasn't my
fault, because there's more to love at first sight than
meets the eye!
Evolution and love at first sight
Over the course of human evolution, we've
progressed and evolved to become better at a few
things that really matter. We've learnt to eat,
procreate and survive.
And there are a lot of complex processes that
subconsciously set things into motion when these
three things that really matter enter the picture.

When it comes to pro creation, evolution has taught
us how to fall in love, get sexually excited by
someone, and desire someone passionately. [Read:
The meaning of love]
Falling in love at first sight
All of us have created a subconscious mental image
of our potential partner. When we walk into a room,
without really realising it,you'll find yourself liking a
few potential partners and not bothering with a few.
And at times, a potential partner whom you are
attracted to may start warming up to you or get
attracted to you too. So does love at first sight work?
It most definitely does!
Science playing matchmaker
Not all of us fall in love within seconds. It has been
seen in studies that men are more prone to falling in
love immediately than women. It seems like men are
more stimulated by visual appeal than women. On
the other hand, women experience romantic
chemistry a lot better than men.
What does that mean? Men know they like a woman
the very second they see her. But in the case of
women, they usually fall in love with someone after
the first conversation.
Kissing secrets, body odour and love

Did you know that your first kiss can affect your
chemistry in love too? Studies have shown that the
exchange of saliva can also be a test for love. Every
time you kiss, genes of major histocompatibility
complex [MHC] get exchanged between two people,
and if your genes share too many similarities, you
might actually get turned off and lose the attraction,
says Dr. Claus Wedekind at the University of
And it's not just the kiss, your body odour too can
predict whether you will experience love at first
Subconsciously, all of us are drawn to certain scents
in our partner's bodies. Did you get a whiff of true
love when you're rubbing shoulders at a party?
You're definitely going to experience love at first
sight that night.
Beyond the science of love
Leaving how science plays matchmaker apart, falling
in love or experiencing love at first sight can be a
beautiful sensation. While our pheromones, genes
and body odours are hard at work in the background,
all we experience in our mind are intense highs and
delirious moments like a junkie high on coke.
Instead of worrying about whether it's going to work
out or not, leave the soothsaying questions to
evolution. If both of you find yourselves getting
attracted to each other when you meet for the first
time, there's a very good chance that evolution has
handpicked a perfect match.
So watch out for this elusive kind of love. What
follows may or may not be perfect, but that first
flutter of butterflies in the stomach is truly
something that makes falling in love at first sight one
of the best experiences of a lifetime.
