8.2 seconds needed to fall in love
The time needed for a man to fall in love at first sight is 8.2 seconds, scientists claim.

Last Updated: 4:01PM GMT 25 Mar 2009

The longer a man's gaze rests on a woman when they meet for the first time, the more interested he is.

If it last just four seconds, he may not be all that impressed. But if it breaks the 8.2 second barrier, he could already be in love they say.

However the same is not true for women. They let their eyes linger on men for the same length of time whether they find them attractive or not.

Hidden cameras were used to secretly track the eye movements of 115 students as they spoke to actors and actresses. They were then asked to rate their conversation partner's attractiveness.

The men looked into the eyes of actresses they considered beautiful for an average of 8.2 seconds, but that dropped to 4.5 seconds when gazing at those they rated less attractive, the journal Archives of Sexual Behavior reported.

The female students, however, looked at the actors for the same length of time. The researchers believe that men use eye contact to seek out fit and fertile mates.

But women are more wary of attracting unwanted attention because of the risks of unwanted pregnancy and single parenthood.

8.2 seconds = I love you
4.5 seconds = You're not attractive
0.0 seconds = holy shit you have some big tits

There is no such thing as love at first sight. The entire concept is completely asinine. I don't know why people even think it sounds good. Why would you want to love someone on looks alone? That is what love at first sight is. I have "I want to ejaculate all over her face" at first sight. But that is about it. Just another article written to raise some eyebrows, that was it's only purpose.

I wonder if a blind man has ever wanted to ejaculate all over the face of someone he just met.

I like it when you're out in the world, and your eyes meet, and your eyes stay locked until you pass eachother.

That's my type of commitment.

I would beg to differ. I think love at first sight is quite possible, as long as you believe that specific features, mannerisms, speech, etc., are indicators of who a person is.

For example, when I was single, if I would see a woman with a perfect combination of thoughtful eyes, a slightly worried/sympathetic tilt to her eyebrows, a very slight little overbite, an angular jaw, a shy smile, and shoulder-length hair that she tucked back behind her ear, that information would tell me that she was smart, thoughtful, caring, attractive, and (the ear thing) a little kinky, which defines the perfect wife.

Now, having fallen in love at first sight, the key was that when I would get to know such a woman she would inevitably fall short of my ideal and I would fall out of love with her, but that doesn't diminish the fact that I did fall in love with her.

For example, if I was single and my heart wasn't already filled with love for my smart, thoughtful, caring, attractive, and [censored] wife, I would be in love with this woman.

Love is about wanting and doing what's best for another person. Looking at someone from across the room for 4 seconds and getting all excited aint it.

I fell in love with a set of twins early in my teens. It took more than 8 seconds. Maybe 2 minutes. We've been together ever since.

Nice dude. When hope and experience collide. Yeah.
