Falling in love, going everywhere together and growing old, happily, together, is all we want. We are looking for love and for loving that same warm feeling. Are you going on a love journey through life?
By looking a stranger in the eye, you can fall in love. The mirror of the soul, as the eyes are called, gives a deep glimpse into the other person’s being. Knowing and being known gives a deeply familiar feeling that your body easily confuses with being in love. This happens even if you don’t know each other and have never met before, because your body produces the hormone phenylethylamine, regardless of your relationship status. If someone stares at you and you keep staring back, you ask for the Cupid’s bow arrow.
Yes, opposites attract, but partners who look too much alike probably won’t last. Recognizability in the other person, or the attractiveness of someone who is as different as you, only works for a short time. For a relationship to be interesting and binding, it needs an equal basis and enough to learn from each other. If the balance moves to either side, chances are, you will grow crooked.
Once you have finally found the person you want to move on with, you will run into strange changing feelings after just one year. The romantic love in a relationship comes to an end around that time. However, it is replaced by a dedicated love. Couples who fall in love with each other are overflowing with romance. Already, after the first year it looks very different. They are much more familiar with each other, know each other on a deeper level and love has become more unconditional. Romantic love, which is associated with euphoria, dependence, sweaty hands, butterflies and the like, lasts only about a year. After that, the deeper devotion begins. The transition, therefore, has to do with increased neurotrophin levels in the brains of the couple.
Research shows that heartbreak is really heartbreak. Intense, traumatizing experiences such as breaking up a relationship, divorce, losing a loved one, or even being physically distant from each other, can be real causes of heart disease. The condition is called broken heart syndrome. Deep emotional turmoil elicits certain chemicals from the brain that significantly weaken the heart. This can lead to severe chest pain and shortness of breath. The condition can, therefore, easily be confused with a heart attack.
What can be done to prevent these violent effects? A good basis for your love will be necessary! The ingredients? Suture, care and intimacy. These are the ingredients for perfect love. According to an old theory, only three basic ingredients are needed for pure love. There are, therefore, three types of love derived from the Greek language that, together, form a total love. First, there is the friendship, the social friendliness with each other, second is caring for each other with a self-sacrificing love, and finally, there is the intimacy that is passionately experienced with a other half. When you combine these three parts in your relationship, you have a foundation for a long life together.
