Young at heart: Age increases belief in love at first sight

Love at first sight is not the sole property of the young. It seems that as you age, you’re more likely to believe in love at first sight. Those who are middle-aged are 46% more likely to believe in love at first sight than their younger 18-24 year-old counterparts.

Love at first sight is not the sole property of the young. It seems that as you age, you’re more likely to believe in love at first sight.

Those who are middle-aged are 46% more likely to believe in love at first sight than their younger 18-24 year-old counterparts, says a survey by datingadvice.com.

Men take a lead here as according to the study, 61% men believe in love at first sight compared to only 53% women. Of the 1,080 respondents, 67% of those aged 35-44 and 64% of those aged 45-54, believe in love at first sight.

This is because those above 35 have more time to experience and evaluate the relationship and have greater clarity about what love means to them than those under 35,” study’s dating expert Rachel Drack said.

Only 50% of single people surveyed believed in love at first sight. 60% divorced people and 61% married people also believed in the same.
