Blood pumping nitwit!. In humans, Donatella Marazziti, Professor of Psychiatry and Director of the laboratory of Psychopharmacology at the University of Pisa, h

In humans, Donatella Marazziti, Professor of Psychiatry and Director of the laboratory of Psychopharmacology at the University of Pisa, has found that early stages of romance are linked with diminished levels of the neurotransmitter serotonin and of a serotonin receptor. These two molecules are also depleted in obsessive-compulsive disorder. Since both conditions (to different extents) also give rise to feelings of anxiety and obtrusive thinking, it is tempting to think of early love as a mild, temporary form of obsessive behavior. Early romance is also characterized by higher levels of several different molecules related to stress response. Twelve to 18 months into a relationship, both serotonin and the stress molecules are restored to normal levels.

Falling in love shows the same neurological signs of insanity. The more you know.

Infatuation, perhaps. I think what brain functions quantify "love" are very much up for debate, actually.

I'll pray for your relationship if it helps at all.

If you don't want it to then don't let it, that's all you can do

I was with my girl friend for over a year and a half. Last tuesday she broke it off with me because she didn't want to be locked in a relationship during senior year. I was crushed, I still am but I'm able to think about what we had. All the moments we shared. Those will be forever even if the relationship ends. I don't think you should live in fear of the relationship ending when it might not happen at all. Everyone goes through heart break but it does get better.

Lemme tell you something buddy, I've been in your position, what you do is you spend as much time with her as you can, while at the same time giving eachother space to grow. It worked for me, and I've been dating this girl for three years.

The reason we often associate the heart with emotion is do to the physical effects caused on it by chemicals released during emotional activities.The most notable of these is when we experience negative emotional stress. This causes the brain to release catecholamines into the cardiovascular system causing a weakening of the cardiovascular muscle, most effected is the central muscle known as the heart. It literally starts to deteriorate your heart in an effort to save it, but causes it become physically painful. If the emotion is sad enough then the heart can become so soft it can rip in half. This is known as stress cardiomyopathy disorder, or broken heart syndrome. So remember, the next time she breaks your heart, she really is breaking your heart!

well, the heart does pump extra blood to the penis during an erection

The heart actually has its own neurological system, and there have been cases where recipients of heart transplants have gained personality traits from the hearts previous owner.

So that explains why during this period so many people get married so quick and then divorce shortly after because they realize they really can't stand each other.

Yes, I know there are those who it has worked for, but they're more the exception rather than the rule, just look at the high divorce rates.
User avatar #7 to #6 - TheMather ONLINE (07/13/2013) [-]
I'd say that's because of genitals that go "I want to make love and I don't care with whom."
#8 to #7 - teenytinyspider (07/13/2013) [-]
Probably a combination.

So what does it mean if i've been going out with a guy for 5 weeks and he's told me he loves me twice?
User avatar #22 to #21 - darthtomale (07/13/2013) [-]
that he's in love with you?
#23 to #22 - anon (07/13/2013) [-]
Oh i just wasn't too sure how to feel because it was the second week of going out, and it's an online relationship so i just didn't know how to feel about it
User avatar #24 to #23 - darthtomale (07/13/2013) [-]
gents can become attached quickly to the gratification a woman's attention brings them.
#25 to #24 - anon (07/13/2013) [-]
Uuuuhhhhh......... that's the thing
User avatar #26 to #25 - darthtomale (07/13/2013) [-]
well id say if youve never actually met he's... very... interested for one reason or another. could be creepy, could be romantic
#27 to #26 - anon (07/13/2013) [-]
I said "Uuuuuuhhhhh" because i'm not a woman.....
and yeah, i suppose. we both think the same things about each other, we both think the other is really sweet and cute
User avatar #30 to #27 - darthtomale (07/13/2013) [-]
lol. i dont why i assumed you female.
User avatar #31 to #30 - darthtomale (07/13/2013) [-]
nvm. yes i do.
#32 to #31 - anon (07/13/2013) [-]
Why did you assume I was a female?
User avatar #34 to #32 - darthtomale (07/13/2013) [-]
because statistically speaking the people who date men are women. but it sounds like youve got a neat set up. and hey, as long as you don't take it creepily id say its all good.
#35 to #34 - anon (07/13/2013) [-]
Oooohhhh. and yeah i know... I've just never been in a position like this before. I have a bf, and there's someone else who wants to be my bf... but they both live in america while i live in england :L
User avatar #37 to #35 - darthtomale (07/13/2013) [-]
aww. thats ****** . well whatever you do be careful. the heart is most fragile.
#38 to #37 - anon (07/13/2013) [-]
yeah i know. and i know, i let the guy who likes me down gently and he's still fine with me, and my bf knows that there's a slight chance we wont be together for long and he's fine with that
User avatar #39 to #38 - darthtomale (07/13/2013) [-]
yeah? that kinda sounds generally ****** .
#40 to #39 - anon (07/13/2013) [-]
Yeah, it's only because in spetember i'll be telling my crush i like him so if anything happens (which i doubt) then we wont be together anymore and he knows that. tbh, in the second week we were going out he told me to tell my crush then and just forget about him but i said no, because i liked him too much and my crush could wait
User avatar #43 to #40 - darthtomale (07/13/2013) [-]
well i hope that goes well for you.
#46 to #43 - anon (07/13/2013) [-]
yeah thanks
User avatar #47 to #21 - holycrapimacupcake (07/13/2013) [-]
That you have found a rare man who is not afraid of commitment. Consider yourself lucky, we're a rare breed nowadays.
#50 to #47 - anon (07/13/2013) [-]
He's a sweet guy but we haven't spoke for about 8-9 days
User avatar #51 to #50 - holycrapimacupcake (07/13/2013) [-]

User avatar #53 to #52 - holycrapimacupcake (07/13/2013) [-]

User avatar #55 to #54 - holycrapimacupcake (07/13/2013) [-]
Well hey, I can't tell you how to live your life buddy, just do what you think is best for you.
User avatar #56 to #55 - victreebro (07/13/2013) [-]
I know, and it sucks because i cant even speak to my bf because he hasn't been on or anything
User avatar #57 to #56 - holycrapimacupcake (07/13/2013) [-]
Just make sure that when you do get to talk to him you don't stall it.
User avatar #58 to #57 - victreebro (07/13/2013) [-]
