What is love? Chemistry?

Symptoms of love are known to everyone: pensiveness in thoughts, strangeness of behavior, mad confidence that all Universe spins around the only person and that nobody ever tested before similar feeling.

But until recently the science did not want to have with it nothing in common. Serious scientists simply believed that love - the imagination fruit which sprouted in brains of people many centuries ago when the civilization provided enough leisure for the romantic nonsense immortalized by poets and writers, musicians.

When people with academic degrees nevertheless paid attention to it, it was found out that love at all not nonsense and not nonsense, but the phenomenon generated by evolution of the nature, biological and chemical processes. The fact that at first sight it seemed unreasonable and uncontrollable behavior of the person, actually is the major element in system of natural powers - the vital mechanism helping mankind to survive, fight for the future and to breed many thousands of years.

Hardly people from four extremities rose by two, an opportunity to make out each other in all beauty was presented to them. Unlike animals, people opened for themselves new sex - a position - face to face, being in embraces of each other. Appearance began to play an important role.

Chemical processes in a human body turned sex into a romantic adventure. Lovers feel drugged. It`s true: they are overflowed simply by a stream of chemicals, researchers explain. The meeting of views, a contact of hands, a smell of perfume are fixed by a brain, the signal is transmitted on nervous cages and comes to blood. The result is known: cheeks redden, palms sweat, breath becomes frequent. If the love also suspiciously reminds a stress, nothing surprising: chemical ways are identical.

The lover falls into euphoria, and in it there is nothing surprising too, considering that many chemicals set in motion are included into the category of amphetamines, including such strong as a dopamine and feniletilamin. feniletilamin forces you to smile idiotically, hardly you see someone who very much is pleasant to you.

But the feniletilaminovy dope is not eternal - the fact which is confirmed by life experience which says to us that the passionate romantic love is always rapid. The human body gradually gets used to a feniletilamin, the increasing and high dose is required to cause a love dope. And after a while the organism becomes unreceptive to this substance.

Cancellation of chemicals means the end of mad passion, and for many and the end of the relations.

And still many novels have this time. What forces people to remain together? Other set of chemicals! Long presence of the partner influences production in a brain of endorphins. Unlike amphetamines they act soothingly. Natural soothing, endorphins give to partners feeling of safety, peace. That is why we so awfully feel when we are thrown by darlings or they die, we do not receive the daily share of the calming drug Chemical processes are capable to explain

why we love. but why we choose someone from millions of one?

In an early stage of love own feeling which you receive from the relations with darling is pleasant; in a mature stage you love the person it what he is.

Such is a scientific view on love. Are satisfied? Most likely, no. At heart all of us - hope that the love will never open to us all the secrets
