Are you going to be one of the 61.8% people who celebrate Valentine’s Day with your loved one? Whether you’re in love or not, your feelings stem from your brain and not your heart. Yes, that’s right. On average, it takes the human mind 1.5 to 4 minutes to determine attraction.
The 3 Stages of Love
The first stage is fired by oestrogen and testosterone in both genders.
This second stage of love is sparked by 3 neurotransmitters: dopamine, adrenalin and serotonin. Ever had your heart race, your palms sweat and your mouth go dry when attracted to someone? You can thank adrenaline for that. Dopamine controls the reward and pleasure center of your brain and has been linked to devotion, focus and addiction. It can make you think “This One’s Perfect”. And, serotonin makes you lose your appetite and day-dream about your loved one all the time.
This last phase is driven by 2 key hormones oxytocin and vasopressin which leads to long-term love. Oxytocin, the ‘cuddle hormone’ cements bonding, comfort and intimacy when the intense passion wears off. Vasopressin also facilitates commitment.
