Disney Lied. Why ‘Love At First Sight’ Seldom Has A Happy Ending.


We all remember those scenes from the Disney movies where the prince lays his eyes on the beauty of the princess (or vice versa) and he instantly falls in love.

‘Magical! That’s how love is meant to be,’ you think by yourself.

Nothing could be further from the truth.

It’s ironic how ‘blind love’ is often based on visual appeal.

And this is exactly the reason why love at first sight seldom ends well.

I am the last person to deny good looks play a role in relationships, but the things that really matter are not visible to the naked eye.

Dive into the deep and make sure you’re not blinded by that what is shiny, before making lasting life decisions.

Once you’re in it, it’s easy to get lust and love mixed up. Force yourself to think about the things that will be left when good looks fade.

Don’t be fooled like Disney’s young royals.

One day, when the honeymoon period is long gone, they too, might find that the beautiful looking person they fell head over heels with, was just as toxic as that shiny apple that nearly ended Snow White.
