Love at First Sight

Love at first sight is a phrase that often refers to when, two people fall deeply in love when they just meet. But, how can you fall in love with a person that you dont haehardly know? All that you may know about this person is what they look like, or maybe their personal backround or past. For many reasons this is why I'm arguing agianst the possibility for love at first sight.

I do believe that somewhere out there, there is somebody that could be your soulmate, but I just can't see how you can love somebody that you dont know. As Juliet says when she finds out Romeo kills Tybalt, "Oh serpant heart hid with a flowering face." Anybody can pretend to be somebody there arnt deep down inside, to win over affection or just to be liked. Eventually that person will show their "true colors"

I think that love at first sight is a fairy tail.

How many people do you hear about that actually fall in love and get married soon after that and then live happiliy for the rest of their life? I think that you fall in love with a person moreeach and each and every day as you get to know them better. Love is like a peice of dirty laundry that is tosed around like it has no meaning, until its lost all value it ever had when a person said it. People shouldnt tell people that they love them unless they really truley mean it.

All of the reasons i have stated are my opinions that support I dont believe in love at first sight.
