Obsessed by someone, daydreaming about the person, pondering about your future together and so on may be sings of love.
Scientific studies have been proven that an in-love brain looks quite different from one experiencing mere lust, and it’s also unlike a brain of someone in a long-term, committed relationship.
Here are 8 signs that will tell you are in love with someone
If you are truly in love tend to be optimistic about your beloved, while overlooking his or her negative traits. You also focus on trivial events and objects that remind them of their loved one, daydreaming about these precious little moments and mementoes. This focused attention is also thought to result from elevated levels of central dopamine, as well as a spike in central norepinephrine, a chemical associated with increased memory in the presence of new stimuli.
Falling in love often leads you to emotional and physiological instability. Slight setbacks in your relationship will make you feel the exhilarated, overpowered, loss of appetite, tremble, anxious, panic, despair. Surprisingly these mood swings properties can also be found in the behaviour of drug addicts.
3. Niggling thinking
More than 85 percent of people who are in love, waking hours musing over their “love object,” according to Fisher. Niggling thinking may be caused by decreased levels of central serotonin in the brain, a condition that has been associated with obsessive behaviour previously.
4. Contemplating a future together
You are seeking for long emotional union with your beloved, make out ways to get closer and day-dreaming about your future together.
According to Lucy Brown, who is a neuroscientist at the Albert Einstein College of Medicine in New York, “Functional MRI studies show that primitive neural systems underlying drive, reward recognition and euphoria are active in almost everyone when they look at the face of their beloved and think loving thoughts. This puts romantic love in the company of survival systems, like those that make us hungry or thirsty,”
5. Feeling out of control
It is scientifically proven that individuals who report being “in love” commonly say their passion is involuntary and uncontrollable.
You can’t help thinking about your love. If someone says or does something that reminds you of him and before you even realize it you’re talking about him.
