Love is: 40 Love Facts You Might Not Know Before

1 year ago

Love is something abstract. It cannot be described in words, it can only be felt. Love is not subject to time, logic, and any laws. It is elusive. We each have our own language and vision of love. Therefore, we will not try to understand this eternal question - "what is love?".


Instead, we will share with you 40 psychological facts that will convince you that love is an amazing feeling.


About love from the point of view of psychology



1. Most people fall in love through eye contact. And this happens within the first 30 seconds. Love at first sight in action!


2. Heart and truth can be broken. Research has shown that major traumatic events—breakup, divorce, physical distance, or the loss of a loved one—can cause real physical pain in a person’s heart. This condition is known as broken heart syndrome. It occurs when deep emotional triggers upset the brain and weaken a person's heart, causing symptoms such as chest pain or shortness of breath. Generally, the syndrome is more common in women than in men and can be mistaken for a heart attack.


3. When we look at a person we like, our pupils dilate by 45%. It makes us more attractive.


4. A person gradually falls in love with someone with whom he spends a lot of time - for example, a classmate or colleague. This psychological phenomenon is known as the exposure effect. Thanks to it, people tend to be attracted to each other depending on the time spent together.


5. People are more attracted to those who are as attractive as they are. This is called the matching hypothesis. Many social researchers point out that people choose their partners or romantic relationships according to a certain pattern. For example, if you are an attractive person, you would most likely want to be with the prettiest person in your neighborhood, at work, or at school/university.


6. Holding the hand of a loved one will reduce mental and physical pain.


7. One look is enough to fall in love. After all, the eyes are the mirror of the soul. So be careful who you look at. When we look at someone, our body releases phenylethylamine, a chemical that is associated with the body's fight-or-flight response.


8. Giving freedom is a love paradox. The more independence you give your partner, the more attached he will be to you.


9. Sometimes love can turn into an addiction. If this happens, it is better to end the relationship.



10. Talkative women and silent men tend to make the best couples.


11. Men fall in love faster than women.


12. When a person sees someone he loves, his heartbeat involuntarily quickens.


13. People marry people they can't live without, not people they can live with for the rest of their lives.



14. If you love cuddling, you'll be glad to know that cuddling is a natural pain reliever. When two people hug, their brain releases oxytocin, the hug hormone. Oxytocin reduces headaches and acts as a pain reliever for up to 4 hours. Therefore, if you feel tired, stressed or in pain, hugs are a great alternative to any painkillers.


15. A photo of a loved one can also relieve pain. Scientists have proven that the presence of a loved one helps a sick patient recover. The same works with his image. In a study conducted among people who were in pain, some participants were shown photos of their loved ones, while others were played with words (for distraction). Pain was significantly reduced in those who were shown pictures than in participants who were alternatively played games.


16. Partners who have similar interests and tastes are unlikely to last long in a romantic relationship.

It's the same with complete opposites, despite the popular belief that opposites attract. As a rule, couples who are either too similar or too different cannot be together for long. According to the researchers, there should always be a solid basis for similarities, as well as what both people can learn from each other.


17. People in love are chemically similar to those with OCD. Studies have shown that couples who are in the early stages of love have lower levels of serotonin, which is associated with happiness and well-being, and higher levels of cortisol, the stress hormone. Similar rates are observed in people with OCD - obsessive-compulsive disorder. This is why we feel, act, or imagine ourselves differently than usual when we fall in love with someone.



18. When it comes to long-term relationships, usually people prefer an attractive face to a beautiful body.


However, when people are looking for entertainment, the body wins - and it's all because of physical attraction.


19. Simply expressing gratitude to the people you love causes an instant surge of happiness.


20. The expression "butterflies in the stomach" is a real sensation caused by the release of adrenaline.


21. Research has shown that if people meet each other in a dangerous situation, they are more likely to fall in love with each other than if they meet in a peaceful environment. For example, two people are more likely to fall in love if they meet on a white water rafting trip instead of in an office.


22. Men are psychologically turned on by women in red. This color is closely associated with desire and attraction. For example, according to some reports, women are more likely to wear red clothes during the fertile phases of the menstrual cycle.


23. When you find out that someone likes you, a small part of you starts loving him back.


24. Some people can't bear the loss of loved ones and die after a few months or years due to mental or physical illness.


25. 64% of people change their appearance after a breakup.



26. Good relationships are about two things: firstly, you need to appreciate similarities, and secondly, you need to respect differences.


27. Research shows that long-distance relationships are just as satisfying as regular relationships in 

terms of communication, intimacy, and commitment.


28. The main cause of depression is unsuccessful love stories.


29. Women are involuntarily drawn to cheerful men with a good sense of humor.

Girls like to be happy, so a man who makes them laugh attracts them like a magnet.


30. We always associate the person we love with our favorite songs.


31. They say the most important thing in a relationship is trust. But it's not. Time is what matters most. It is over time that trust, friendship, and boundless and inseparable bonds grow.


32. Happiness Is Contagious, Research Shows It can be difficult for people to walk away from someone who is happy, or not to love someone who is happy, simply because such people are nice to be around.


33. The more you ignore someone you like, the more you fall in love with him.


34. Men with a lower voice are more likely to sound attractive than males with a higher voice.


35. Women first experience pleasure psychologically before experiencing it physically.

For men, it's exactly the opposite.



36. It takes only 4 minutes for a person to understand whether he likes someone or not. So if you want to make a good impression on someone, you don't have much time! It is believed that getting and holding someone's attention has more to do with body language, tone, and speed of your voice than what you actually say.


37. When two loving people look into each other's eyes for 3 minutes, their heart rate is synchronized.


38. Testosterone is a powerful male hormone that attracts women with its scent. Cologne that mimics the smell of testosterone can make a woman pay attention to a man.


39. Falling in love is like a cocaine addiction: it produces the same chemical euphoria and almost the same effect on a person's mind.


40. Twenty-year-old men feel emotional pain after a breakup more than women.

How to understand that this is my man


Perhaps that is why people so often fall in love in such an environment ... but not all lovers can admit this to the object of their adoration. But he doesn’t have to admit it because it’s not so difficult to calculate for a woman, and we will give 20 signs indicating that someone nearby is breathing unevenly toward you.


The good news is that you can catch a lot of signs that will give away true feelings. And best of all, they are all scientifically based, so you can be sure they will be accurate! Here is a comprehensive list of signs a man is in love with a woman, from his subtle change in habitual behavior to apparent signals that he is head over heels in love with you.



1. He talks about a future together


If he talks about how fun your next vacation will be together, what kind of house you would like to live in, or your idea of ​​a family, it means one thing: he has a vision for your future together and wants to talk about it!


Marisa T. Cohen, assistant professor of psychology at St. Francis College, says, "When partners push each other to answer these questions, it shows a certain level of intimacy." This doesn't necessarily mean he wants it right now, but he does show interest in your aspirations. This matters a lot because he wants to ensure your intentions are compatible.


2. He tries to make you happy


Although these gestures are lovely, this does not mean just giving you flowers and dedicating songs. He does everything possible to correct the situation when he sees that you are upset or sad. He might offer to cook for you when you're tired from work, or if he sees you're having a bad day, he might try to cheer you up with a surprise gift or an unexpected visit. He wants to make sure that your life is as comfortable as possible because he sincerely wants to see you happy.


3. He steps out of his comfort zone for you.


It's one thing to be nice, but it's another thing to go out of your way to try something new just because your partner wants it. Research published in the Journal of Personality and Social Psychology shows that if he is willing to try new activities or experience new experiences that he is not used to, he is trying to bring the relationship to a new, trusting level.


4. He looks into your eyes


One win-win method can help determine if a man has fallen in love with you - and this is his look. When a person is in love, his eyes naturally turn to another person's face; this is one of the bases of psychology and human behavior. So if he looks at you with dreamy eyes, as if he is trying to look into your soul, he may be in love with you!


5. He is not shy about revealing his intimate details in front of you.


Don't let the word "intimate" fool you. Sex certainly plays an important role, but it's just a component of what creates intimacy, according to Marisa T. Cohen. He may talk about his first kiss or favorite book as a child. Maybe it will be something more serious, like his biggest fears and secrets or his family history. It doesn't matter what it is - the point is that he opens up to you, and you see him as the most vulnerable, which means that he feels safe enough around you to reveal something that he has not told anyone before (or almost nobody).



6. He shows affection in public


A man in love will often not be able to take his eyes off you and his hands. They will unnoticeably end up on your shoulder, waist, or even your forehead when he removes a strand of hair from your face one day. He may even take your hand while talking to someone else, just like that, for no apparent reason.


7. He's become more optimistic lately.


If he's acting happier than usual, he has some strong feelings for you. A German study reports that stable relationships help us feel better about life and reduce our tendency to be irritable, anxious, and emotionally unstable.


8. He makes plans


Does he seem excited about what you guys are doing together? Does he remember your work schedule and try to align it with his so you can spend more time with each other? This is a sure sign that he is involved in a love game and wants to build something more for two.


9. He invests a lot of time in your relationship.


If you're curious to know if a man is in love with you, here's a little tip: check how much time he invests in your relationship. According to a study from Purdue University, we are naturally more likely to be committed to someone with whom we have a satisfying relationship. If he does his best to spend time with you, he is clearly in love.


10. He does everything for you.


You may have heard the saying, "You will know them by their fruits." When a man does something for you, it shows that he cares about your needs, wants to make your life easier, and helps you when he can. The best thing to do is not just thank him but ask him what he needs help with. This will show him that you also care about him and his feelings.



11. He thinks about you


He might tell you a funny story, ask you questions about himself, or comment on something you've posted on social media before. Or maybe he can mention a song, video, or something else that reminded him of you - all signs that he thought about you and would like to tell you about it.


12. He always puts you first.


We are not talking here about the fact that a man in love will leave all his friends so that you become his top priority for the rest of his life. That would be crazy, or at least not very healthy behavior. But you might start noticing that he lets you choose your next date, does things for you without much objection, and generally tries to do something that pleases you. Do you think it's disingenuous? Not always!


A study published in Europe's Journal of Psychology concludes that these small but selfless acts are clear signs of compassionate love, which correlates with romantic love.


13. When you laugh, he laughs too


This may seem like an obvious sign, but laughter is truly one of the best ways to connect with other people. Evolutionary psychology research shows that men use humor to gauge a woman's interest. If the two of you constantly laugh at each other's jokes, it's a sign that the love chemistry is natural and his feelings for you run deep.


14. You are already in love with him


When it comes to love, things are a little easier for women. A Spanish study found that women in love are more likely to get love back than men. The study goes deeper, theorizing that women tend to be more selective about their partners. Conversely, men tend to say they are in love, even if they know this feeling can be unrequited.


15. You can feel his heartbeat match yours.


The natural connection of partners is more profound than we think. According to a study from the University of Colorado Boulder, when two people in love sit close together, their heartbeats and breathing tend to naturally sync and match—the body does this unconsciously.



16. He says “we” all the time


It's one of those things that may not be easy to notice, but it indicates that he's in love with you. And he says this not only because he feels that he needs it but because strong couples sincerely consider both parties to be essential elements of the picture when they make plans or discuss with others something that concerns both of them. This is why the verbal shift towards "we" is so natural.


17. He stopped cleaning up after himself.


This may sound like a bad sign, but hear us out. When a relationship starts, we all try to be the best version of ourselves. Graceful, gorgeous, charming - whatever. But over time, once we begin to feel comfortable with each other, it's okay to let down our guard and show those sides of ourselves that aren't entirely pleasant, says Marisa T. Cohen. It's not a reason to be repulsive or disrespectful, but it does show that he's comfortable enough around you.


18. He reciprocates your interest


Sex and relationship expert Shan Budram explains that the way he interacts with you speaks volumes. Suppose he gives you his full attention when you're together, responds to your text messages at a relatively reasonable time, and doesn't cancel plans at the last minute. In this case, it is safe to assume that things are going in the right direction. Especially in the early stages of your relationship, he is already looking forward to spending time with you and wants to ensure that he does not miss any opportunities for intimacy or communication.


19. He interacts with your social networks


It's not necessarily a sign of love per se, but asking about your friends and family or commenting on your photos in an attempt to make contact means a lot in this age. Christy Overstreet, a clinical sexologist and psychotherapist, confirms that these are all great signs that what he feels for you goes beyond friendship.


20. He writes and mentions you


As soon as this happens, know - this is a vital sign! Shan Budram is sure that this is a clear signal that he is in love, as he is comfortable informing his closest friends and family about his feelings for you.
