10 Crazy Things That Happen When You’re Falling In Love
We sing about it, write about it and watch pictures about it, however when you consider it, falling in love is crazy and maybe even weird.
It makes us feel and do things we generally wouldn’t under whatever other circumstances.
First of all, it physically affects our hormones and brain. In fact, scientists have shown that love affects the brain in a way similar to cocaine addiction. Not only that, it also affects us psychologically and behaviorally.
Here are 10 crazy, weird symptoms you may experience when falling in love:
1. Your hormones go wild in love.
When you fall in love, your cheeks flush, your cheeks flush, your heart pulsates quicker, your palms are sweaty and your head begins turning. This is all thanks to a rush of chemicals and hormones that flood your brain and body when you fall in love.
2. You wake up and go to sleep thinking of someone other than yourself in love.
From the moment you wake up in the morning to the moment you go to sleep at night, the person you love occupies at least some part of your mind. How does your brain even know to think of that person first thing in the morning? Doesn’t it have other more essential things to stress over?
As crazy as it may be, it is nice to think of someone beside you every once in a while.
3. You smile when you’re alone.
We’ve all seen them: the smile texters. Smile texting is the perfect example of what happens when you’re falling in love. You experience weird, giddy feelings of happiness, even when you’re not physically with that special person.
4. You become a little obsessive in love.
I wonder what she’s doing right now. I wonder if she’s watching the game. She loves football, which is cool for a girl. But I forget what her favorite team is … I need to ask again. Or maybe I should ask now. I’ll mention it if she texts me later.
5. You do embarrassing things.
Ever heard those sappy stories of boys in the olden days throwing rocks at a girl’s window, and playing her songs on their guitar? That was then, but today, there are videos all over YouTube of men proposing to their fiancés with elaborate flash mobs that take place in front of hundreds of people.
6. You do things outside of your comfort zone.
Along the same lines, falling in love will make you do things you never even considered doing before. Boys, that may mean taking a yoga class or going to get a pedicure with your girlfriend.
7. You suddenly care more about your appearance.
Before, you may have rolled out of bed and thrown on some athletic shorts and a t-shirt, but you now have a reason to try to look good.
8. You sing.
When you’re falling in love, you feel so happy and carefree, you can’t always keep it inside. Whether you sound like William Hung or Ariana Grande, sometimes, you just have to sing at the top of your lungs to let it all out.
9. You go out of your way.
You may find yourself driving out of the way to pick up your love’s favorite dinner, or calling in sick to work just to hang out with him or her.
10. You go blind.
As the old adage goes, love is blind. When you’re falling in love, everything your love does and says is interesting and amazing. Every word uttered from his or her mouth, and every move he or she makes, is magical.
