a. people who genuinely fell in love at first sight or people who believe in it
b. people who didn't fall in love at first sight, but who claim they did b/c it's just so romantic
c. people who don't believe in love at first sight
We must define what "love at first sight" is, firstly. There are some that say they took one look at their man or woman and knew immediately, "Okay. They're the one." I think that is the definition of love at first sight, and that few people actually have that happen to them, as romantic and publicized by movies as it may seem. Then again, that's just a theory. I've thought about this a lot.

(263) Have you ever posted in the "personals"? yeah *cringes*
(264) What would you do if you were walking down the street and saw some hot guy/girl standing on the sidewalk? if i was feeling shy that day, i'd probably look away. if i wasn't, i'd probably just try to make conversation out of nothing.
