Dr. Helen Fisher explains love as, “every time you feel anything, something is going on in the brain because that’s the conductor of the orchestra.” Dr. Fisher has spent most of her studying “all the weird things love does to our brain” and even written six books about ‘love’. So, we can assume she is an expert in this genre.

She even surveyed 2500 college students. Whenever the student saw the picture of their lover, the two areas of their lit up: Caudate Nucleus and Ventral tegmental area or VTA. The caudate nucleus detects rewards like the love interest and VTA produces dopamine and sends it out, which is why “new love can feel like a drug”.

Love has three parts: sex drive, intensely romantic love, and deep feelings of attachment.

As per the research of Stanford University School of Medicine Study that “intense, passionate feelings of love can provide amazingly effective pain relief, similar to painkillers or such illicit drugs as cocaine.”

Researchers claimed that love is a drive that surpasses rational thoughts and form deeper emotions. If your relationship lasts longer, all the feelings are starting on the same level. Serotonin is on a normal level, which causes you less anxiousness and less obsessiveness, and you can drink, eat, and sleep again.
