So, you met this person recently at meron kang hindi ma-explain na chemistry or connection between the two of you. ‘Yun bang tinatawag na “spark.”
Could this be love at first sight?
Hinay-hinay lang, because the truth is, baka attracted ka lang sa kanya.
According to Florian Zsok, Matthias Haucke , Cornelia Y. De Wit , and Dick P. H. Barelds in their study What kind of love is love at first sight? An empirical investigation, “Love at first sight is not a distinct form of love, but rather a strong initial attraction.”
Yes, love at first sight is not love but a strong attraction.
Ang attraction kasi is “the action or power of evoking interest in or liking for someone or something,” says Oxford Dictionaries.
So when you find someone attractive, lahat ng senses mo gumagana. Your senses of sight, smell, hearing, touch, and taste play a role when deciding whether papasa siya sa’yo or hindi, as explained by Dawn Maslar in The Science of Attraction.
Kaya ka kinikilig when you see the person kasi may mga chemicals na nare-release sa brain mo. Those chemicals produce the feelings of euphoria similar when you’re high with drugs.
Pero paano kung mawala na ‘yung warm and fuzzy feelings na nararamdaman mo? Doon pumapasok ang totoong definition ng pagmamahal. Sabi nga, it far surpasses physical attributes.
“Love is more than just an initial attraction; it’s about being invested in another person’s emotional and spiritual growth,” says Dr. Salida Afridi, a clinical psychologist, as cited in an article entitled The science of love at first sight.
“There are deeper issues than just beauty and attraction at play. So, while it’s possible to fall for someone initially on a superficial level, you have to work to keep the relationship alive,” she added.
So, take this time to slow down and examine yourself kasi baka you’re just driven by your emotions. Love nga ba o attraction lang?
Don’t rush into love. Guard your heart as pointed out in Proverbs 4:23 NIV, “Above all else, guard your heart, for everything you do flows from it.” Guard it by praying to God tungkol sa nararamdaman mo so that you can see clearly and make wise decisions.
