Love At First Sight

I don't believe in love at first sight. Does that make me logical, or unromantic or both?
It's impossible to love someone who you have just seen. You don't know them or anything about them.
I believe in being in love with the idea of love at first sight. Let's be honest, its a nice idea. It makes for a much nicer story than "our eyes locked and I thought hmmmm he's not bad looking, then casually continued on with my life". Its better dinner party conversation to say I saw him and knew I loved him than to say I saw him and wanted him. 
I understand why people do believe in it. You love him now and can't remember a time when you didn't, so you call it love at first sight.
You look back to when you first met. You remember that butterfly feeling you got when he first looked at you, first spoke to you, first touched you. And you casually forget that you had those same feelings with countless other men, but didn't come to love them.
I believe in lust at first sight. The power of attraction is strong and could be mistaken for love, but then you get to know him as a person, realise you have nothing in common, he doesn't treat you as you want to be treated or one of a million other reasons and you move on. The next time it happens you do the same. And again. Maybe even again. Then you find the one, and that initial attraction genuinely does become love so you tell yourself you always loved him. It doesn't mean you actually did.
Do you believe in love at first sight?
