According to a Valentine's Day poll conducted by, 55 percent of Christian singles believe in love at first sight -- 58 percent of men and 53 percent of women. Twenty-four percent said they didn't, and 21 percent were undecided. When asked, "What do you want most for Valentine's Day?" 81 percent of men said they wanted a significant other, compared to 61 percent of women. "Even after everything we think we know about love and commitment, singles still believe you can tell from the first impression whether a person is right for you or not," said Ashley Reccord of ChristianMingle. "These results are contrary to what we expected. While the stereotype is that women are more romantic at heart, our poll suggests men may trump women in believing in romance, even if they don't always show it outwardly." Additionally, 46 percent of Christian singles believed there was one right person in the world for them, compared to 34 percent who disagreed and 20 percent who were undecided.
