Does Wendy Williams, host of GSN’s new show, “Love Triangle,” believe in love at first sight? Not quite, but she does believe in love after first conversation. Dude, story of my life. I have seriously said, more times than I can count, “Oh my god, I think I love him!” after having one lengthy and deep conversation with a dude. Most recently, my boyfriend, and thankfully that hasn’t fizzled — but so many others did the minute I realized that one lengthy, deep conversation was all that homeboy had to offer. Sigh. Anyway, don’t forget to watch “Love Triangle” weeknights at 7:00 p.m. EST /6:00 p.m. CST on the Game Show Network. [“Love It Or Leave It”] Keep reading »
Have you ever wondered if people who are blind can experience “love at first sight” without being able to see? Well, Damon Rose, who is blind, writes in an article for BBC News, that they can, but with different criteria. It’s more like “first listen” than “first sight” when it comes to attraction, and voices can communicate everything from humor and intelligence to quirkiness and attitude. If you have a gross, croaky voice, well, good luck finding love.
But don’t think that just because they can’t see, blind people aren’t as shallow as the rest of us when it comes to looks. Rose writes that when he and his male classmates at a boarding school for blind children heard that the new girl was blond, she instantly became attractive in their minds simply because flaxen-haired women are classified in society’s “hot” category. Instantly, this girl became popular, and all the boys wanted her despite not knowing whether she looked like Blake Lively or Brooke Hogan. When one of Rose’s blind friends was told that the girl he was totally into was a dog, he dumped her. Apparently, superficiality doesn’t discriminate. It’s an ailment from which we all suffer.
