Sweet Love

Do you fall in love with your heart or your brain?

When researching the first question I have concluded that you use your brain to fall in love. It was researched that, “different parts of the brain fall for love”(Falling in Love takes). Your brain does involve your heart as well to fall in love studies also have shown, “ [Love is] formed by both bottom-up and top-down processes from the brain to the heart and vice versa”(Neuman).

How long does it take to fall in love?

I concluded that for the most part “People fall in love over time, but most often it is sudden, developing quickly”(Neuman). In fact studies have shown that, “Love at first sight really is possible because it takes just milliseconds for euphoria-inducing chemicals to flood the brain”(Blake). But as I said it is different for everyone but for the most part it is very fast hence “falling” in love.

How does love affect your body and brain?

. For the third question studies reveal that, “When we fall in love, blood flow increases in [center of the brain], which is the same part of the brain implicated in obsessive-compulsive behaviors”(What Falling in love does). Love affects your brain, which then sends signals to your body that create physical effects like blushing, sweating, and a faster heart beat.
