Couples in love sometimes synchronize heartbeat and brain patterns.
Not kidding! Couples who have been hooked up to monitors for their heart and brain functions were found to synchronize, every few moments, while interacting with each other. This is often explained as “momentary love,” in which we have a moment that makes us feel loved, and is the backbone to long-term love.
Thinking Of Love And Sex Influences Creativity And Concrete Thinking, Respectively
Research based on the construal level theory found out that reminders of love influence more abstract and creative thinking because they are associated with more distant and abstract considerations – long-term relationships, devotion, commitment and intimacy. Reminders of sex trigger concrete thinking, making a person focus more on momentary details than on long-term plans or goals.
Falling in love is as addicting as cocaine or nicotine.
Dopamine, a chemical that is released during the initial attraction stage of the relationship is also activated when using cocaine and nicotine. It gives you that rush of pleasure and happiness that makes those drugs so addicting. It also enhances the release of testosterone, which as stated above is essential for attraction. I suppose falling in love would be the safer drug of choice if you had to choose between the three.
We also tend to fall in love with someone who looks like ourselves.
Do opposites really attract? Despite what you may have grown up hearing, studies may reflect the opposite—interestingly, especially when it comes to looks.
According to research reported in the July 2010 issue of Personality and Social Psychology Bulletin, we are attracted to people who resemble our parents or ourselves.
