The Speed of Love

"The time taken to 'fall in love' clocks in at about one-fifth of a second, not the six months of romantic dinners and sharing secrets some might expect."

“A recent study used functional magnetic resonance imaging to see how love affects the brain. Its calculations of love has attracted plenty of attention. … 12 areas of the brain work together during the love process, releasing euphoria-inducing chemicals like dopamine, oxytocin, adrenaline and vasopressin. Love’s high is similar to cocaine’s rush. Love influences sophisticated intellectual processes of the brain too. When a person feels in love, their mental representation, metaphors and even body image are also affected. … Overall, [researchers] found, love is really good for you.”
