I put yes, because I had this with my better half. In da club, well actually outside in the smoking area (I quit last year, feels good man) Just kinda made eye contact and then she made this smile... I just instantly got this feeling I couldn't describe. Like I just HAD to talk to this girl. Approaching total strangers isn't something I usually do at all, I tend to go by friends of friends, but this just felt different. Love is my best approximation.

Still going strong and getting better nearly three years later.

Being drunk would probably be my first explanation there.

I wonder if this might be a path to love at first sight in a way as well; seeing someone who looks like someone you already have strong love for and projecting some of that emotion onto this person (man sees identical twin of deceased wife for first time). Since the Pit is filled with professional psychologists with an IQ of 140+, I'm sure someone can provide an answer

Indeed, however seeing as its your first sight of said person, one would assume that you're never seen them before

Well there are a lot of theories that we are attracted to people who look similar to us or our parent of the opposite gender, so I wouldn't be too surprised

You can be told a lot about someone character by what they're doing, how they hold themselves, what they wear or how they present themselves, how they're reacting to others... etc etc.

Seeing someone dressed up in very bright avant-garde clothing shouting aggressively at someone tells you more about them than simply their physical appearance. Similarly seeing someone dressed in quite subdued plain clothing, walking nervously and quietly down the street will tell you something about them beyond just their physical appearance.

Of course such inferences might be wrong or might not tell you everything about someone, but first sight of someone can tell you of characteristics of their personality you might find attractive too, not just physical attractiveness.

Indeed. Yet even so I don't think it's possible to feel more than lust at first. For me, bearing/how they hold themselves is all part and parcel of physical attractiveness.

Yeah, I was contemplating mentioning ol' Oedipus, but didn't feel it was necessary.

As for your first point, it was just me being a bit pedantic in order to set the scene for my main point. I realised that you probably didn't mean it in a universal sense

She said that she liked me, that i was a really sweet guy and that my heart is in the right place.

She even said that she wanted to help me get through my unrequited love for her, but i declined because i knew that i could never get over her if we kept in contact. She said to me that she wishes me the best of luck with everything, and that if i ever needed her for anything as a friend, to just ask.

I chose to cut all contact from her at that point. I haven't spoken to her since. This all happened 2 years ago. If Ash wants me to be happy, than that's exactly what i'll try to be.

I don't believe that you can remain friends with someone you love, but then again what do I know.
All I know is that in Deepony's place I'd feel better outside of it.

Only plot twist I can think of is that I hadn't QUITE broke things off with my manipulative, controlling partner at the time...and neither had she

But thanks man, we're very happy

Yes, totally edgy because I expressed what I'd do according to my own personal experiences and believing that you might not feel the same way

Also you're spending way too much time in this thread, don't you have a stuffed pony to hump or what

Basically this, I think 'first sight' is more of an expression.
