1.falling in love is as addicting as cocaine and nicotine.
Dopamine,a chemical that is released during the initial attraction stage of the relationship is also activated when using cocaine and nicotine.it gaves you that rush of pleasure and happiness that makes those drugs so addicting.it also enhances the release of testosterone,which is essential for attraction.i suppose falling in love would be the safer drug of choice if you had to choose between the three.
2.love can literally make you crazy.
Something you may or may not know about love is that it can lead to serious infatuation.the same levels of serotonin that bring about the infatuation are found in those with obsessive compulsive disorder,which is an anxiety disorder.this is probably why you cannot think of anyone else when you have fallen in love.
3.your nerve cells work better during the first years of love.
A protein in our bodies called nerve growth factor (NGF)that is important for the functions of certain sympathetic and sensory nerve cells seems to thrive during the first years of being in love.basically our senses are heightened and our fight or flight response system is more active during young love.
4.we are attracted to those who look or similar to one of our parents.
A partner who looks similar to one of our parents is found to be more comforting.if you are a female and your father wore certain cologne,it is a familiar and comforting scent.this makes sense but let's not bring Freud on this.
