Love. The human way of expressing an unbreakable bond between two people. Love is something that most humans want to achieve at some point in their lives. Typically, this can be found within the mid to later points of young adulthood and usually happens once one has found themselves. Within this season of love, I thought this topic fit perfectly! There are some crazy facts about love that I would love to share with you today!

Here are 9 crazy facts about love:

~It takes only four minutes to determine if you like somebody or not. Crazy right?! Yes, your heart and brain work together faster to decide something like that. 

~If you and your lover stare at each other’s eyes, your heart rates will synchronize. That by far is the cutest and most amazing fact by far. Something like this can change just by looking into their eyes! Awwww, how romantic! 

~Cuddling releases natural painkillers. If you have a headache, curl up with your significant other and watch The Notebook and put away the Advil; the cuddling will do that for you. Even looking at a loved one’s picture or holding their hand can relieve the pain. 

~People at the same level of attractiveness are more likely to end up with one another. So, yes, you can probably stop dreaming about marrying Zac Efron! Now, this is not always true because we know that opposites attract, but this is a pretty common occurrence between lovers. 

~Heartbreaks are physically possible. When one occurs traumatic pain, it can actually release pain in the heart area. This may just be a coincidence, but either way, that is pretty intense. Having a heartbreak is not just a metaphor. 

~Butterflies in your stomach are real and are caused by adrenaline’s response to the flight or fight method that occurs when seeing your partner, but this happens in a good way. When you get aroused by seeing them, this triggers the same feelings of arousal as if you were going to be chased or hurt. Crazy what love can do to you! 

~Having dilated pupils means you are attracted to someone and therefore ends up making you more attractive. This happens when you are paying close attention and focus on something. 

~Looking into a stranger’s eyes can make you fall in love. That may just be a coincidence, but it has been proved to have happened on many occasions. Just be careful how many eyes you look into!!

~In the end, love is all that matters. It may take awhile to find, but it is definitely worth the wait. Just keep looking, and if you have found it, you are in for a wonderful ride! Happy Valentine’s Day!
