Love has been ‘painted’ in many ways that seem so attractive and nice. Everyone desires to experience the feeling of love because of the way it is generally depicted. There are however some new revelations that seem to go in a different direction. Some scientific reports are now insinuating that the ‘rules of passion’ may not be closely related to the feeling of love.
The following have been pointed out as scientifically suggested fundamentals of falling in love with another person.
People with similar traits and likes attract
From a scientific perspective, the thought that opposites attract may not hold. It is suggested that two people with similar interests are more likely to fall in love. The similarities between the couple could be their likes, preferences, or lifestyle. When you find someone who can share similar interests as you the chances of falling in love with that person is higher.
Our unique smell
We all smell differently. It is an invisible attraction that catches the attention of other people. We may not be aware of it, but a close relationship develops with people whose smell is attractive. In this regard, our unique smell has been likened to resilience, confidence, sense of humor, or features that indicate we will be great parents. So scientifically, our bodies play a role in determining whom we fall in love with eventually.
This works in different ways most of the time. Men tend to focus on women’s facial attributes which can make them fall in love. On the other hand, women are more sensitive to the physical features of a man who is trying to be friendly. These physical attributes are interpreted by women as the capacity of the man to protect them, which fulfills an inner need. Men equate the physical features they mentally desire to the ability of women to give them healthy kids and satisfy other needs.
We have such remarkable brains. Our intuition helps us to identify a suitable partner without a fuss. You just connect with the person. This case is also attributed to people who have painted a picture of their ideal partner in their subconscious minds. When they meet, the personalities just click, and they fall in love.
Our social nature
We can hardly control our social instincts to interact and be with other people. This ‘craving’ is one of the reasons why people find it easy to connect with anyone just to avoid being alone. When it happens, they interpret this relationship as an experience of love. It can be addictive. This is why you can find friends who seem to never stay single for long. After a breakup, they meet and ‘fall in love’ with the next person they meet.
Protecting the babies
There are also a group of people who tend to fall in love after pregnancy. The arrival of an entirely dependent child makes them feel responsible for the Childs future. In this case, the partners become closer to jointly provide the love and protection the infant will need from parents. After all, it is very easy to break up a relationship when there are no children involved.
Scientists have observed some close relationships among other animals but none as strong as two humans in love. With these new revelations, it may seem falling in love is not about the romance anymore. However, we have been coping with our situation even before scientists came out to suggest that falling in love may be pre-planned.
