ve At Love at first sight is widely debated.  Some say that true love is based on physical appearance without a deeper understanding of a person does not exist.  Others argue that one may be able to see true love immediately.  Shakespeare puts a part of the play to this question.  He makes reference to Romeo and Juliet as "crossed lovers".  In other words, the two lovers are manipulated by their future from the very beginning.  Although not meant to be together, they may still love each other.  Romeo first sees Juliet during her parents’ banquet.  Romeo is completely in love with looks and not personality. His first love, Rosaline, does not return the favor of his love. Romeo becomes entirely depressed and love sick. He still insists that Rosaline is his one true love, even though she does not love him back. Romeo is very stubborn.

 Romeo is struck by Cupid's arrow, when by chance, he meets Juliet. Instantly, Romeo and Juliet are attracted to each other, by Romeo's words, and by Juliet's looks. When Romeo first sees Juliet, he is completely astounded by her beauty. Without even knowing her name, Romeo's eyes take complete control of his heart and mind, setting him in a helpless state of love. He questions whether he has loved before, and realizes that his previous loves have never been genuine.

Romeo and Juliet did not take the time to get to know each other and form a deep intimate relationship. They rushed into their relationship. They were also very young to be experiencing love. Even people much older than them do not know what love means. It may have really been true love that was mutually felt by both of them though. Many people say that they have had experiences with true love but I do not think that true love exists in the real world, only in fairy tales and fiction stories. I do not think that you can fall in love until you are mature enough to understand what love really is. Many people fall in love to fast and end up being disappointed...
