Word on the Street : love at first sight

“Do you believe in love at first sight?”

Carolina, 33
"No, I think love is much more complicated than that. I think that love is more about the character of a person, and you can't really judge that in the first instant. I believe in attraction at first sight, but not love."
Serge, 40
"Well, I think that it could happen. I don't know if i believe in it, but I do believe that it happens."
Scott, 22
"I definitely believe in love at first sight. When I saw my girlfriend for the first time, i ran into her on that corner right there on 59th street, and it was like instant electricity like you wouldn't believe. it was unbelievable. And that's how quickly it happened, I ran into her on the corner and five months later we've been going out and it's been the best five months of my life."
Rob, 21
"I think its a nice idea, but I don't think it could really happen too often. But perhaps I'm being a cynic. I mean, I wish it would happen to me."
Talia, 29
"I haven't found it yet, so no. No but seriously, I've met people where it has worked out, just not for me."
