Do you believe in love at first sight?
That’s not a trick question. I’m not going to ask you if I need to walk by again.
Do people instantly connect and have metaphysical fireworks explode in their hearts, or does it take time for love to grow?
Personally, I feel like the older one gets, the harder it is to feel those instant fireworks. But what do I know?
Shakespeare believed in love at first sight. And since this is a series about how to get chicks using the bard’s most romantic passages – well, if you meet someone and feel that instant connection, maybe you can recite this to said individual:
No sooner met but they looked;
No sooner looked but they loved;
No sooner loved but they sighed;
No sooner sighed but they asked one another the reason;
No sooner knew the reason but they sought the remedy;
And in these degrees have they made a pair of stairs to marriage…
– William Shakespeare, As You Like It
Love at first sight or love that grows with time? Is one better than the other?
