Love at first sight is a serious thing to some, yet fun words to others. If youve never felt what it feels like, here are a few signs. You of course get really nervous, and you may have a stomach dropping moment. You may just want to be with them constantly, feel like you’ve known them forever or want to know every detail about them. But is this real love? Or is it another powerful emotion called lust? There are plenty of people who argue that love at first sight just isn’t real.
1. Your stomach drops.
When you set eyes on someone and it’s love at first sight, your adrenaline will immediately start pumping through your veins. When adrenaline is released, that feeling of butterflies in the pit of your stomach is the result. And if it’s really love at first sight, these will be some of the most powerful butterflies you’ll ever feel in your life.
2. You get really nervous.
Nervousness usually comes from having a big event, presentation, or an announcement to make. You get butterflies, sweat, and shake at the thought of going through with whatever it is you have to do.
When you experience love at first sight, you will probably get really nervous for virtually no reason. When just setting eyes on a person makes you sweat bullets and stutter your words in a nervous wreck, it’s a huge sign of love at first sight.
3. You feel like you’ve met them before.
When you feel that you’ve almost instantly made an immense connection with someone, despite only having met them recently, it could be love at first sight. You will feel as though you’ve known them for years, when you may have only met them that night! You won’t look at this person like they’re a stranger, but rather that they’re an old friend whom you haven’t seen in a while.
4. You feel an intense desire to talk to them.
Not only do you feel that you know who this person is deep down, but you’ll also feel compelled to go talk to them. This can be especially noticeable if you’re usually a quiet, shy person who never goes up to a strange person and introduces yourself. You will feel an almost subconscious pull toward them if it’s love at first sight.
5. They’re not your usual type.
Everybody has a “type,” even if we don’t like to admit it. For me, it’s athletic. For others, it might be the bad boy/girl, the artist, or the cute nerd. Bit if you experience love at first sight, you may be surprised to find that this person is the furthest thing from your usual type.
You will not only be pulled toward them by a seemingly invisible force, but you will be really confused as to why, since they’re not the type of person you normally go for. But remember, your true love isn’t always the type of person you’ve always imagined yourself with.
6. You can’t stop thinking about them.
If you’ve experienced love at first sight, your mind will constantly wander to their face, their voice, and when you might talk to or see them next. It’ll feel as though you’re a teenager experiencing a first crush. You won’t be able to think of anything but them for days and maybe even weeks. If your love was strong enough, you may never forget them at all.
7 You genuinely want to know about their life.
With this kind of love, it’s not necessarily a sexual attraction right from the get-go, although this could be wrapped into your feelings. But more than a sexual connection, you’ll also immediately want to know about their childhood, where they’re from, and what their hobbies are.
This kind of love touches you deeply, making you feel the need to get to know them on a much deeper level.
8. You find them really attractive.
Just because physical attraction isn’t the main thing you feel for this person when it’s love at first sight, it’s still something that you feel with intensity. The difference is that it’s not an overwhelming attraction that makes you want to rip of their clothes and have your way with them.
This kind of physical attraction makes you appreciate everything about the way they look. You find them sexy, cute, hot, and beautiful all in one. This is can also be a classic case of becoming so attracted to their personality that their looks seem to simply follow suit.
9. You immediately picture yourself with them.
If it’s really love at first sight, you’ll most likely start picturing yourself in a relationship with them. Most of the time, this can take a little getting to know them before you automatically feel as though you could really be with them for the long haul.
But when it’s love at first sight, you’ll starting daydreaming about dating them, being with them, buying a house with them, and maybe even starting a family.
