The Science Of Love: We Know What Happens, But Not Why Or How



I really love it when science can’t explain some of the most beautiful things in life. It just makes it feel more magical, am I right? Well, actually, science can explain what happens when we’re in love, but not how or why it happens.

Romantic, familial, platonic. “Love has captured our imagination and curiosity.” I concur wholeheartedly. When we fall in love, our brains make us fall in love with the entire world, not just that person. I know it’s very romantic, but they also compare love to being on cocaine and having OCD. So there’s that.

Like they conclude, there are physiological and psychological components, but science doesn’t know how or why love works, but we know that it’s real, and we all know when we feel it. Amen, scientific people.
