Love at first sight

The phrase ‘Love at first sight’is defined as an emotional condiciton whereby a person feels romantic attraction for another person on the first encounter with the person. The person may or may not be aware that the other person has any such notion, and may not even be aware of the other person’s presence. The term ‘love’in this phrase could be refered to an attraction or romantic feelings.
I believe in ‘love at first sight’as a physical attraction you feel towards another person but not as a romantic love that you feel from the first moment you see a person. It is impossible to have romantic feelings or fall in love at first sight with another person but it is possible to feel physical attraction or the desire to get to know a person once you see them.
Scientist who had study our brains activity say that ‘love at first sight’it is possible. But, I believe they refer love as an attraction or desire.

Authors from past times have made their interpretation on the phenomenon of ‘Love at first sight’. For example in Plato’s Symposium in Aristophanes’description of the separation of primitive double-creatures into modern men and women and their subsequent search for their missing half.
