Secondly, in general, love at first sight is attracted by other’s appearance, which can easily make people blind. It is one of our weaknesses that we sometimes can be easily attracted by good looking persons, especially at first sight. Love bases on well understanding of each other.

She tried every means to approach him and talk to him, but when she finally knew him, she was upset to find out that he was rude and selfish. The first attraction is like a plant without root. It’s fragile and can hardly last for a long time. Last but not least,

Hmmm, love at first sight, there must be something like that. Look at so many love poems, love novels and...
