Psychologists from the University of Groningen in the Netherlands conducted a study of the phenomenon of "love at first sight" and concluded that it does not exist. This was reported by the Independent.

In the first stage of the study, which took place in the form of a survey on the Internet, 396 participants, mostly heterosexuals, took part, about 60 percent of them were women. The respondents were asked about their current relationships and then shown pictures of strangers.

Participants had to describe how attractive they seem to them and what emotions they cause: intimacy, passion, affection, or the feeling that "me and this person were made for each other." They were also asked if they fell in love with them at first sight.

At the second stage, respondents were asked to participate in quick dates, during which they spent 20 minutes or an hour and a half with strangers. Only 32 people passed it, most of whom were men. During this stage, the subjects reported 49 cases when they felt love at first sight.

However, the researchers noticed that the higher the attractiveness of strangers, the more likely the study participants admitted to the appearance of hot feelings from the first minutes of communication. At the same time, none of the cases of sudden love on the first date turned out to be mutual. From this it was concluded that the so-called love at first sight is simply a strong sexual attraction that arises either at the moment of the first meeting, or when remembering it.

It is also noted that the study participants who were in a relationship at the time of the study and said that they fell in love with their partners at first sight, called their relationship more passionate.
