Love is a human phenomenon that has been studied for centuries.
Even though the absolute truths about love and crushes have not been found so far in any science that has been involved in the study of love and crushes, because of its subjective nature, it is always interesting to see how such a complex phenomenon looks like under the prism of research in science. We can all agree that love is a wonderful feeling that makes us feel alive.
Here are some interesting facts that came to the experimental researchers of love:
Women are attracted to men with a sense of humor because the sense of humor is generally associated with intelligence and sincerity.
If you hold hands with a crush, this contact is able to reduce not only physical pain but also the experience of stress and fear.
People who are happy have minimal chances to be abandoned by partners because the experience of happiness is contagious, i.e. spending time with a happy person is a very pleasant experience.
Women generally think that men are more attractive if they see another woman smiling at that man.
Men with a deep voice are more attractive to women.
Falling in love
Falling in love has a calming effect on the body and mind of a person. This increases the rate of nerve growth and this phenomenon lasts for a year, regardless of the length of the feeling of falling in love.
Attracting someone’s attention
It takes only 4 seconds for most people to decide if they like someone they just met or not. On the other hand, if you want to impress someone, you only have 4 minutes to do it. Attracting and keeping someone’s attention and interest has more to do with the non-verbal behavior and the tone and speed of speech than with the content of what you are saying.
Looking your crush in the eyes
When two people in love look at each other face to face, their heart beats synchronize. For synchronization, it takes 3 minutes of eye-to-eye interaction. How beautiful is that?
Cuddling in people creates substances that are natural painkillers. That substance is called oxytocin. It also reduces headaches and migraines. The effect of oxytocin lasts for 4 hours. So, if you feel tired, stressed, or in pain, cuddling is a great alternative to get rid of those problems.
