The latest study by US-based website DatingAdvice.com has found that Americans aged 35 to 44 are 46% more likely to believe in love at first sight compared to 18 to 24 year olds.

67% of 34 to 44 year olds believe in love at first sight compared to 46% of 18-24 year olds.

Nearly two thirds (64%) of 45-54 year olds and over half of those aged 54 and older (56%) said that they believe you can fall in love when you first meet someone.

Male respondents were more likely to believe in love at first sight (61% of men vs 53% of women) and gay participants were more likely than their straight peers (63% vs 57%).

Interestingly, 60% of divorced participants also said that they believe in love at first sight – which suggests that even after a break-up, people still maintain a sense of romance and optimism when it comes to new relationships.

DatingAdvice.com surveyed 1,080 respondents over the course of three weeks.

Rachel Dack, the site’s women’s dating expert explains that Americans over the age of 35 may be more likely to believe in love at first sight because they have more clarity about what love means to them.

‘In terms of relationship success, it is key to understand that love at first sight might be an amazing starting point, but it certainly does not keep a relationship going,’ says Dack. ‘What is most important is nurturing your relationship and partner so the love between you grows and lasts.’
