What is love?  There are loads of things we don't know about it still. How come something abstract becomes a huge part of our lives?

It’s that time of the year again to find our summer loves! So let’s talk about love!


1. According to scientific evidence, you become more productive when you’re in love.

You start to make future plans and build a strong connection with your partner when you’re in love. Your brain applies this to your daily life also. Then you start to think more about your future and to make future plans, which makes you more detail oriented and focused to solve more problems.

2. It’s not possible for your brain to distinguish between the chemistry of love and obsessive-compulsive disorder.

Your serotonin hormone level reaches the same level of a person with obsessive-compulsive disorder. So you become someone with anxiety disorder when you fall in love. I think this explains the reason why the person we’re in love with seems completely different from the other people in our lives.

3. Taking antidepressants suppresses emotions like love and romanticism, along with causing sexual side effects.

6. Our bodies have the ability to sense the people whose immune system is different then ours, and we tend to fall in love with those ones.

7. However, we are much likely to fall for someone who looks like us.
