Check the next TOP of 10 things that happen to your body when you fall in love.
What happens to your body when you fall in love?
1. You smell rich
Has it happened to you that you bought a perfume and it does not smell as good in you as it does in your friend or that it fixes you better than someone else? Well, although the smell of the perfume you use matters when flirting or to bind someone. When we talk about the process of falling in love that smell goes beyond that fragrance. We speak of the Ph-level of acidity or alkalinity-of your skin, of its own aroma.
Although it is not scientifically proven, several sexologists claim that a person’s body odor may be more pleasing to one individual than to another and that is important in the process of falling in love. For Helen Fisher of Rutgers University in New Jersey, United States, people relate smell to status and look for smells similar to those of parents.
2. Do not shout … Or, yell at me
When you’re with someone you like, the tone of your voice goes up in volume. A study published in 2011 by the Journal of Evolutionary Psychology showed that women who talk to someone who attracts them tend to speak louder and their tone of voice becomes more feminine.
3. Blushed, sweaty accelerated when you fall in love
Once you have established that approach with the person you like, it is time for the first appointment. First date! Far from thinking about what clothes you will wear and how you will manage, your body starts to get so excited that it twitches! Your heart beats faster, your palms start to sweat and you blush. Everyone, men and women, when another person actually likes them, act in the same way and this is due to the dopamine that releases their brain.
4. Larger eyes to see you better
When you are in the dark and when you are in danger, your pupils dilate and the same thing happens when you fall in love and see the person you like.
5. I’m on a diet
In the search of a couple we tend to do diets and follow exercise routines to see ourselves and feel better when that person we hope to arrive, but certainly one of the symptoms of being in love is the loss of appetite and it is not for the same reasons when he is single
According to clinical sexologist Kat Van Kirk, interviewed by CNN, part of being in love is that the hormone that produces cortisol in your body goes into a kind of stress and that tells the blood cells that pass through your stomach that you are satisfied.
6. You do not sleep well
When you fall in love, it is normal for you to become discouraged because you want to be in contact with that person. There is just the common phrase of “that person who takes away your sleep” and that is also the result of a chemical reaction in your body.
Part of the euphoria that you experience when you are in the process of falling in love is that your body feels more energetic, more alert and that means that sleep times are more comfortable and you feel more encouraged.
7. Love is a drug
It will sound like a cliché, but in reality, love turns out to be a drug. When a person is in love they produce as much dopamine as if they ingested cocaine. Its degree of excitement is high and dopamine releases other hormones that produce a high degree of dependence.
8. I want to know everything about that person
Although with the existence of social networks the activity of stalker or monitor has become a fashion and part of a process to meet a person. The desire to know what he does or always want to be by his side is also a chemical reaction and does not necessarily respond to “sickly jealousy”.
Dopamine produces a dependence of addiction to our loved one when we do not have access to communication, we do not see the person or we do not have news of them, our body produces corticotropin, generating anxiety and depression.
9. You already have me
Continuing with the idea that falling in love is an addiction, the chemicals that are released in the body are adrenaline. In addition, endorphin, neuroepinephrine and serotonin are also released, which provoke that feeling of emotion.
10. The hormone of love
While endorphin is what makes us addicted, adrenaline and serotonin make us feel happy and obsessive. Oxytocin is the hormone that is responsible for creating confidence in other people and oneself. This secretion is particularly activated when you fall in love and more in intimate situations such as sexual intercourse and orgasm.
So, dear forever alone, if you want to experiment with new chemicals in your body, you have to fall in love. You can explore all of this when you fall in love.
