Do Folks Really Fall In Love At First Sight?

We’ve all seen movies and TV shows where the main characters seem to fall in love at first sight, but does that really happen in real life? Well, a new poll questioned just that.

  • A survey by adult products company Aam & Eve polled customers on the subject of love at first sight and the results were interesting.
  • 40% of those surveyed said yes, they have fallen at love at first sight.
  • Interestingly, in a similar poll conducted in 2011, that number was as high as 71%.
  • 47% of people insist they have never fallen in love at first sight, up from 22% in 2011.
  • 13% of folks say they are unsure about love at first sight, up from 8% % in 2011.

"The sense of falling in love at first sight tends to be a trance-like state where we see ourselves in the other," Dr. Jenni Skyler, resident sexologist at Adam & Eve, explains. "It's a huge hit of dopamine and adrenaline, which can feel super enticing, even if it ultimately doesn't manifest in long-term intimacy. My guess is that these numbers reflect the decline in overall optimism our culture is experiencing."
