10 Heartwarming Facts About Love

March 28, 2016
1 - Historically, sweat has been an active ingredient in perfume and love potions.

2 - The Mexican chief Montezuma considered chocolate a “love drug” and drank 50 cups of chocolate a day before visiting his harem of 600 women.

3 - Studies show that if a man meets a woman in a dangerous situation (and vice versa), such as on a trembling bridge, he is more likely to fall in love with her than if he met her in a more mundane setting, such as in an office.

4 - The maple leaf is a symbol of love in China and Japan—and in North America, it was often engraved on beds of early settlers to promote peaceful sleep and pleasure.

5 - Romantic love lasts just over a year, perhaps because the brain cannot eternally maintain a revved-up state of romantic bliss. As romantic love wanes, attachment love, a more stable love, sets in. To keep the passion alive, experts suggest doing satisfying and exciting activities as a couple.

6 - Women often feel loved when talking face to face with their partner; men, on the other hand, often feel emotionally close when they work, play, or talk side by side.

7 - The term “love” is from the Sanskrit lubhyati, meaning “desire.”

8 - Scientists suggest that most people will fall in love approximately seven times before marriage.

9 - It takes less than four minutes to decide whether you have feelings for someone and that decision is based mostly on body language. 55% on body language, 38% on tone of voice, and only 7% on what the person is actually saying.

10 - When two strangers are forced to talk and maintain eye contact for a while, it can make them fall in love. “In an experiment, strangers of the opposite sex were put in a room together for 90 minutes where they talked about intimate details and then stared into each other’s eyes without talking. Many felt a deep attraction for each other, and two married each other six months later.”
