Hitomebore 一目ぼれ Love at First Sight

Here is a word you can use every day! Well, if you live in a Meg Ryan movie that is.

love at first sight

"one eye," 一目 hitome here means "a glance" or "a look" and ぼれ is from 惚れる horeru and means "fall in love."

Here is our example sentence:


kare wa, kanojo ni hitomebore shite, sugu ni puropo-zu shita.
Falling in love at first sight, he soon proposed to her.
