12 facts about love that explain a lot about relationships

\The following is taken from a letter written by Albert Einstein.

“There is an extremely powerful force that, so far, science has not found a formal explanation to. It is a force that includes and governs all others and is even behind any phenomenon operating in the universe and has not yet been identified by us.

This universal force is LOVE.

This force explains everything and gives meaning to life. This is the variable that we have ignored for too long, maybe because we are afraid of love because it is the only energy in the universe that man has not learned to drive at will.

To give visibility to love, I made a simple substitution in my most famous equation.

If instead of E = mc2, we accept that the energy to heal the world can be obtained through love multiplied by the speed of light squared, we arrive at the conclusion that love is the most powerful force there is, because it has no limits.”

Here are 12 examples of the power of love.


1. Monogamy exists in the animal kingdom

Humans are not alone when it comes to monogamous relationships. Just to name a few, wolves, swans, gibbons, and even termites share this trait with us.


2. It only takes 4 minutes

In marketing, there is the 3 second rule. That’s the amount of time you have to catch a buyer’s attention. If you’re looking for a relationship, you have 4 minutes to make a good impression.


3. Completely in sync

Guess what some researchers say happens when you gaze into the eyes of the one you love. If a couple is in a bonded, romantic relationship, their heart rates sync after 3 minutes.


4. High on love

Falling in love is a natural high. The neurological effects are much like a dose of cocaine, where the brain triggers sensations of euphoria.


5. Feel so good

Are you a cuddler? Research says that cuddling with your love produces oxytocin, called the cuddle hormone. It’s said to decrease headaches and for some makes the pain go away completely after 4 hours.


6. Pictures of you.

It’s well-known that when patients have loved ones around them, their health improves faster. An experiment has now approved that even having a picture of a loved one can help reduce pain and speed up recovery.


7. Like attracts like

both psychological and social studies indicate a pattern of people choosing romantic relationships with people who share their own level of attractiveness. Meaning that they are equally socially desirable.


8. Too much of the same

You’ve heard that opposites attract. And that is partially true. However, couples that are too similar or too different probably won’t last.


9. Heartbreak.

A broken heart is more than just a metaphor. Traumatizing events such as divorce, breakups, or the death of a loved one do cause real physical pain in the area of the heart.


10. Stands the test of time

Love changes. What started out as romantic love in a couple will eventually change to something called the “committed love” stage.


11. Love = OCD

Yes, there are similarities between the two. Early in the relationship people through lower levels of serotonin, which is exhibited by feelings of happiness and well-being. But at the same time, they have higher levels of cortisol which is associated with stress. This is basically the formula of OCD.


12. What are you thinking about?

Research says that reminders of love will influence abstracting creative thinking leading to thoughts of long-term relationships and commitment. Reminders of slacks influence a person to focus on fleeting details.
