Love is a powerful feeling that can change our lives. It is a complex emotion that varies from person to person, and from culture to culture. Love can be a positive force that brings us closer together, or it can be a negative force that drives us away. Despite the many different ways that we experience and understand love, there are several common themes.
Typically, when we are in love, we feel euphoria and happiness. We want to spend time with our loved ones, and we may even ignore our responsibilities in order to spend more time together. We also tend to see our loved one in a more idealized way, which can cause us to believe that they are perfect and that there is no way that we could possibly find someone else who is better for us than them.
Another common sign of being in love is intense feelings of passion, infatuation, and obsession. We might think of them all the time, daydream about them, and feel like our heart can’t possibly hold their love and is going to burst. Similarly, being in love can make us blind to the negative aspects of our partner, which is where the saying ‘love is blind’ comes from.
When we are in love, our brains become overloaded with oxytocin, which is a hormone that makes us want to be close to others. This is why it can be so hard to listen to others, get work done, and follow a regular schedule when we are in love.
