Some people say they believe in love at first sight. Personally, I’ve always been a bit suspicious of the notion.

Sure, we all get infatuated with someone upon introduction from time to time, and maybe occasionally that will lead to a lasting relationship, but it’s at least as likely that it will fade as you get to know them, or not be reciprocated, etc etc.

I think the real moments that we know someone is “the one” are a little less magical and a little more magically mundane than that, and they usually come after a long time spent together.

Let’s see if these confessions from real couples can back me up on that.
