Do you know what is more addictive and high other than cocaine? Well, it’s Love. Being in a loving relationship releases a horde of neurological reactions within the body. It has been found that there is an increased level of oxytocin, dopamine, and adrenaline in the brains of the people who are in love. This causes euphoria-like symptoms, just like what happens with a drug.
Do you believe in love at first sight? It does exist, but for only guys, it seems! It has been found that guys are more likely to fall head-over-heels for a girl based on her looks, while girls are more likely to get attracted towards a guy’s behavior. It’s also true that it takes only a minute for a guy to fall for a girl, whereas girls take a considerably longer time in order to fall hard for a guy.
This is a dating fact which you surely going to find amusing. It is said that planning an unconventional dating strategy can make someone fall in love with you. Well, it means that on the very first date, plan a date in a restaurant while on a second date, and plan something thrilling and scary such as an amusement park. You both can learn more about each other on the first date to a restaurant which happens to be the most crucial step in creating an emotional connection. The second date to an amusement park can actually make your date to fall in love with you. Want to know how?

If you think that your one true love would be with someone who is really close to you, then you are probably wrong. Studies found that two people who felt too close to each other were as likely to break up as the people who didn’t really feel close enough.

Have you heard of the term ‘lovesick’? While, it is not some disease associated with love, but does actually exist and makes you less productive according to science.

Studies have found that when two people are in love, one person will always love the other one more, at any point of time. Now, this doesn’t indicate that one person is madly in love while the other hates their partner. It actually means that in love, one person plays a significant role in holding the relationship together, while the other one just goes along on the love ride.
