While we try to learn how to use this phrase in different languages of the world, there are a few facts about love we need to remind ourselves of:

  • That it takes less than five minutes for us to decide whether we like someone or not and we also have the same minutes to create a good impression on such a person.
  • Being in love with someone has some neurological effects similar to those of cocaine. Research has proven that our hormones, interests, and upbringing all play a role in determining who we love — and who falls for you.
  • Psychologists also say that human beings are not capable of being “just friends” with members of the opposite sex because the act of falling in love is known to have a calming effect on a person’s body and mind.  This, in turn, will raise levels of nerve growth for about a year.
  • That love is sweet but at most times, very painful. Research has proven that intense, traumatizing events, such as a break-up, loss of a loved one or betrayal can cause real physical pains in one’s heart. It leads to what scientists call the Broken Heart Syndrome. The condition is often misdiagnosed as heart attack and tends to affect women more often.
