Many individuals claim that they knew that their partner was right for them the moment they laid eyes on them. Although it may feel this way, studies have shown that the real factor in leading people to believe that they have found their soulmate is rooted in the absence of red flags. When someone doesn’t notice something that makes them uncomfortable right off the bat, the positive emotions that they feel are more likely to outweigh any negative ones.
- Love at first sight does happen, but in some cases the couple did not feel any connection and even argued with each other.
- Some people realize the other person is the right one for them after time has passed and no red flags have been raised.
- Sometimes a strong instant attraction is more related to resolving a personal issue from childhood rather than an indication that you should be partnered with this person.
