What happens to you when you fall in love?

When you fall in love, your brain releases chemicals such as vasopressin, adrenaline, dopamine, and oxytocin, which light up your neural receptors and give you a euphoric sense of purpose. Romantic love is a habit. The more you practice it, the stronger it gets.

The heart is a muscle, and like any other muscle, it can be strengthened by exercise. Just like you can build muscle strength and tone by exercising your body, loving someone else gives your heart muscle a work out it will love again and again.

Love is powerful. It has the ability to change lives for the better. It has the power to heal. Love is also dangerous. It can cause you to do things you wouldn't normally do. It can make you feel like you're ready to jump off a cliff or into a fire. Love can destroy you too. Destroy your reputation, your career, your life even. You must be strong enough to hold on to yourself and your feelings during times of trouble.

When you first start dating, everything is wonderful. You're happy all the time, you have no problems communicating with each other, and you don't want the date to end. This is normal relationship behavior at its best. It shows that you are comfortable with being around each other, that you enjoy each others' company, and that you both want to continue spending time together.

What is the feeling called when you fall in love?

You feel energised and exhilarated in their presence. Falling in love includes a lot of hormones, which may boost and drastically vary your sentiments. Increases in dopamine and norepinephrine contribute to emotions of joy and giddiness while you're with the person you love. These chemicals are also responsible for feelings of attraction and passion.

The feeling of falling in love can be very pleasant. You should know that there are other feelings around love too, like being in love, being in lust, etc. The most important thing is that you enjoy this time with yourself or someone else. If you're not sure about any particular emotion, then just take some time to think about it. Love has many faces, so there's no right or wrong way to feel about it.

Can falling in love change you?

Falling in love can induce physical changes such as palpitations and compulsive thinking, which are a natural reaction to the new hormones you're feeling. "Not only are psychological changes associated with new romantic love." says Dr. Jain, "but physical changes also occur."

These changes may include increased heart rate, dilated blood vessels, sweating, shaking, fever, pain, swelling, and loss of appetite. Many people who fall in love for the first time feel these changes immediately. For some, it takes more than just one encounter with your future spouse to cause these reactions. Some scientists believe that these reactions are our body's way of preventing infection by bringing about changes necessary for greater blood flow and oxygenation of vital organs. The result is that your body is putting out signals to its environment to prepare it for pregnancy.

It is normal to experience many mental and emotional changes when you meet someone special. But if these feelings are not shared with someone you care about then they could be a sign of emotional attachment called "love addiction". Love addicts suffer from excessive feelings of love toward another person or thing. They need this intense emotion to feel alive but it keeps them trapped in a vicious cycle of addiction.

People love to talk about their experiences in love. We all have a story to tell about our first loves or lost loves.
