What are some things to beware of when you think it’s love at first sight?

Cupid’s Advice:

Everyone wants to believe in love at first sight. The romantic concept is in every love story ever told, so why not in our lives as well? While having a good first impression of someone is definitely a good sign, it’s not a fool-proof system:

1. Infatuation: Often mistaken for love at first site, we can become suddenly infatuated with someone we find attractive, or who seems too cool to be true. Sometimes they aren’t that cool. Sometimes you don’t consider if they’re compatible with you when you’re so enthralled with their beauty.

2. Incompatible: After a brief chat it should become clear if your personalities don’t click. However, wait for the second date before writing their name on your mirror. Explore how they feel about life, issues important to you, and relationships.

3. Unavailable: Make sure first of all that this person can offer you what you’re looking for. Maybe they’re avoiding relationships at all costs. It’s possible they work too much to be able to give you much time. Understand how you would fit into their life.
