Do you believe in love at first sight?
Was it that way for you and DH / SO?

Gentle parenting is about guiding instead of controlling,
connecting instead of punishing,
and encouraging instead of demanding.
It's about listening, understanding, responding and communicating.

I don't. Actually, my husband and I did NOT get along when we first met.

I would say no. BUT it took a VERY short time for me and my hubs to fall in love.

I don't believe in love at first sight.

DH and I weren't that way... I don't even remember the first time I met him, apparently He never fails to bring it up, though.

I think that you can tell some of a person's qualities at a glance, but it's guesswork at best.

When I saw my husband I immediately knew I was going to marry him, but I wasn't too happy with the idea at the time.

I believe at sparks at first sight...you can't love somebody you don't know on the inside.

I knew when i saw dh that he was someone i wanted to know better, and eventually may fall in love with.

I knew the first time I met DH that I would marry him. We have been together almost 12 years now and married for almost 7.

We met online in a chat room and ended up moving in together about 3 weeks after our first date..

I'm the odd ball here. I absolutely DO believe in love at first sight because the first time I saw a picture of DH I KNEW I loved him. Sounds crazy, but true! He feels the same.

Instant connection/vibe, yes. I felt it with Chris, I'd never noticed anyone like I did him and the second we met I just knew he was the one.

When you put it this way, I think yes. Not necessarily in a romantic way, but every single person that I felt a strong connection with on first sight have turned out to be my most enduring friends. I can think of 4 occasions this has happened in the last 9 years and I'm still close to every single one of them, including my husband.

Yes but with my husband we met while we both worked at KFC. The first thought in my head when I saw him was, " *Beep*, there go all my hours!" He just got hired in so I wasn't too happy about it

I did not like DF at first.. he kept chatting me up and I was just like ugh whatever, hi. When I went back to Wyoming, he called me and we started talking everyday. For like 8 hours at a time. By the time I came back to CO with everything I owned, we started dating and the rest is history! I don't know if I believe in love at first sight. Every time I thought I experienced it, things ended badly. But I like reading the stories where it all works out!

Nope, I don't. Unless you count my babies

I also was less-than-thrilled when I first met DH. I thought he was a dork and he kinda irritated me. Lol. But, I was kind of in a rough patch of life and didn't give him the benefit of the doubt. I will say it took a while for him to grow on me. It was more like a lazy river to love instead of a jump off the diving board, kWIM?

Dh and I had locked eyes when we first met, it was weird and awkward. His mom and my aunt knew each other and set us up on a date, the rest was history. We fell in love pretty quick, we have been together for 14 years married for 11. So I'm not sure if it was love at first sight but definitely a connection of some sort.

I think its so amazing to see couples together now that did not like one another at first, or felt no connection!
