Love at First Sight or Love After Being Friends

Love at First Sight or Love After Being Friends

I’ve been through a lot of relationships, and I’ve always wanted to find true love that lasts. But sometimes, it can be difficult to know whether you’re in love or not. The signs are there, but they don’t always come easily. So I decided to ask myself some questions about my past relationships and compare them with the ones I’m currently in. This helped me figure out what true love really is. And now I think everyone should know these things too!

Love at first sight vs love after being friends

Love at first sight is when you fall in love with someone at first sight. You may have met them at a party or through mutual friends, but there was just something about them that made your heart skip a beat and gave you butterflies. Maybe it’s their sense of humor, or maybe they’re just really good-looking (or both). Either way, this kind of love can happen quickly. And sometimes it’s not even reciprocated!

Love after being friends means that two people become close friends before falling for each other romantically. This kind of relationship often develops over time as both parties get to know each other better and realize how compatible they are as partners or spouses. However, some couples who start out as friends later develop feelings for one another which eventually leads them down the path towards marriage or engagement rings!

Love at first sight

You may be familiar with the feeling of love at first sight. It’s that dizzying, heart-pounding sensation that you get when you see someone and think: “This person is my soulmate! I’ve finally found ‘the one.’ I must have them!”

But what does it mean to be in love at first sight? And how can you know if your feelings are real or just an illusion created by hormones and pheromones?

Love after being friends

When you meet someone and fall in love, there are certain things that can happen. You may be able to tell that they’re the one for you from the moment you lay eyes on them. You might not even know how or why it happened, but it just did! You two were meant to be together forever and ever until death do us part (and then some). That’s great!

However… it doesn’t always work out that way. Sometimes we meet people who seem perfect on paper but then turn out to be total jerks after we get to know them better. Or maybe even right away! And sometimes we meet people who aren’t interested in dating at all and just want friends instead of boyfriends/girlfriends (or vice versa). Whatever happens with these folks matters less than what happens next: if they don’t work out romantically, should they still stay friends?

You love them for who they are, not because you want them to change.

You love them for who they are, not because you want them to change.

I’ve been in a relationship with my boyfriend for six years now and I can confidently say that this is true for me–and it should be true for any person who has found their soulmate. When you love someone, it means accepting all of their flaws, quirks and habits without question or judgment. If someone were to try and change your partner into something they aren’t (or make them feel bad about themselves), would that really be love?

It’s easy to be yourself around them

You don’t have to pretend to be someone else when you’re with them. You can act like yourself, and they’ll accept you for who you are.

You can be honest with them, because they won’t judge or criticize what comes out of your mouth.

There’s no pressure with this kind of love.

There is no pressure with this kind of love. You can be yourself, and hang out without expectations or pressure to be a certain way. There’s no pressure to do anything–you just enjoy each other’s company as friends!

You can love someone without being in a relationship with them

You can love someone without being in a relationship with them. It’s more difficult, but it’s possible. Love is a feeling that you can have for many people–your parents, your siblings, your friends (maybe even your dog).

There are many reasons why you might not want to be in a relationship with someone: maybe they’re too busy or too old; maybe their interests don’t align with yours; maybe there’s no spark between the two of you. But when one person falls head over heels for another and they don’t feel the same way? That can hurt like hell!


Love at first sight is a real thing for some people. You can fall in love with someone after being friends and even dating other people, too! But what matters most is that you’re happy and comfortable in your relationship–and that your partner feels the same way about you.
