Adam & Eve Releases Results of New Survey on Love at First Sight

HILLSBOROUGH, N.C.—Adam & Eve and have released the results of an all-new survey that compares results to the same question they asked 10 years ago: Have you ever experienced love at first sight?

This year, when respondents were asked if they have ever fallen in love at first sight, 40 percent said yes, compared to 71 percent in 2011. Nearly 47 percent of those polled said they had never fallen in love at first sight, compared to 22 percent in 2011. This year, 13 percent of respondents said they weren’t sure about love at first sight, compared to 8 percent of those questioned in 2011.

“The sense of falling in love at first sight tends to be a trance-like state where we see ourselves in the other,” said Dr. Jenni Skyler, resident sexologist at Adam & Eve. “It’s a huge hit of dopamine and adrenaline, which can feel super enticing, even if it ultimately doesn’t manifest in long-term intimacy. My guess is that these numbers reflect the decline in overall optimism our culture is experiencing.”

“Adam & Eve encourages adults to explore their sexuality within their own comfort levels and boundaries,” says Chad Davis, director of marketing for Adam & Eve. “We are happy to provide options and accessories for every stage of relationship.”

The web-based survey, conducted by an independent third party survey company, of over 1,000 American adults age 18 and up, was sponsored by Adam & Eve to study sexual preferences and practices.
