“I think it can be. If you’re attracted to someone, then that could be like it. It happened to me.”

“Yes and no. I believe that you can get a good intuition and see if someone is on the same level as you in how they are how they carry themselves. You can get a good grasp of how someone is before you meet them.”

“Not sure! I’ve never fallen in love at first sight, but I believe maybe.”
