We’ve all gone through a phase, or maybe several phases, where we think we’re in love with someone we just met. Everyone knows this as the “love at first sight” phenomenon. It makes you feel all the right things at the moment of meeting – butterflies in your stomach, your heart skipping a beat, and the rest of the shebang. While love at first sight can feel like cupid’s arrow has buried deep into your ventricular walls, you still need to snap back and ask yourself if you truly are in love or just in love in the moment?
Questions That Assess Whether You Truly Are In Love At First Sight?
Of course, we believe that anything can happen with love so the chance of your love at first sight turning into something serious is not discounted. What we are saying is that you need to set your fluttering emotions aside and ask yourself the following questions:
1. Is It Just Physical Attraction?
Don’t get us wrong. Physical attraction is important in any relationship but physique shouldn’t be the only aspect in a person you like. Physical attraction fades in and out of a relationship, so if this is the only aspect of the person you like, the relationship might not stand the test of time.
2. He or She Is Flawed. Is This OK With Me?
Obviously, the person you have an eye for will have their own flaws. As soon as you simmer down from your love at first sight feeling, you’re going to see that soon enough. You have to ask yourself if this is ok with you, if not, you have to come to terms that you are not in love at all.
3. Will You Have The Same Values?
So you can get along with the person you’re interested in, you have to have the same set of values in life. You can find this out by getting to know the person. What if you find out that you don’t? Are you still willing to work on the relationship, or potential relationship?
4. Is The Feeling Mutual?
You can’t really form a relationship if the other party is not feeling the same as you. Because you can’t really flat out ask the person you like, “are you interested in me too?” you have to find out slowly. There’s chance that the answer is no, of course, so you have to be willing to take the risk if you’re truly in love.
These questions should make you more focused in assessing whether your love at first sight can bloom into a real relationship or if it’s just going to fade away in a couple of days. Share this post if you found it helpful and don’t forget to read more of our posts on our blog.
