New Delhi, Jan 29 (IANSlife) Seventy-three per cent of dating App QuackQuack users have felt irresistibly attracted to someone they have seen or met for the first time at least once in their lives. This could be solely based on their appearance, personality, aura, or scent.
The survey was conducted on users between the ages of 24 and 30 in Tier 2 and Tier 3 cities had a slightly different opinion. A whopping 53 per cent believe that love at first sight is not true love, but rather infatuation, crush, or a “butterflies in your stomach” type of feeling.
Closer look at falling in love gradually
Long-held belief holds that the best way to determine if you’re in love with someone is to spend as much time as possible with that person. When users were polled, 81 per cent of men aged 28 to 32 from Tier 1, 2, and 3 cities said the only true love that exists is the one that happens over time. Sure, meeting new people and having new experiences is important, but not everyone is meant to stay in your life forever, and not every connection you make with them is one of love.
It’s all a personal choice
When it comes to love and relationships, most of us have the “love at first sight” idea ingrained in our heads from watching it in movies and sitcoms so many times. According to a the survey, 60 per cent of users aged 18 to 23 were interested in finding a partner they were instantly drawn to and with whom they could share a deep, meaningful connection. On the contrary, 73 per cent of users desired to take their time and allow their best relationships to form, with both partners understanding and respecting each other. Perhaps the best way to find out what works for you is to experiment and learn from your mistakes.
Mr Ravi Mittal, Founder & CEO of QuackQuack, expressed his thoughts on love at first sight vs. falling in love slowly, saying, “We are seeing an increasing trend in the younger folks to be open to various experiences. As a result, love-at-first-sight is no longer regarded as a fictitious concept. Many people meet and instantly connect. Sometimes the most wonderful connections are made in the most unexpected places, and sometimes a couple who has been dating for 6 years breaks up because they no longer see mutual love in the relationship. It’s all a game of hormones and the human heart.”
