5 interesting things about men’s brains when they fall in love



Falling in love can be one of the most spectacular experiences a person can have.

The stage of meeting and getting to know each other, followed by slowly falling in love is truly a beautiful journey. We all know what it means to be blindly in love!

When in love, our brain and body function differently; sometimes oozing happy hormones or at other times, sulking because of a fight.

Quite interestingly, the brain of men take a fascinating turn when they fall in love. Let’s decode what falling in love means in their brain.

1. Feeling ‘high’ in love

As opposed to what you’re thinking right now, men actually feel very elevated and in a state of bliss when they are with their partners. The brain produces a high level of a chemical called phenylethylamine (PEA) that makes people feel falling in love addictive and high. The overlapping neurochemical responses in the same areas of the brain account for both drug addiction and love, and that’s why men appear so happily in love with their partners.

2. Improper judgements

Men will consider their lady love to be perfect in all ways. They will never accept the fact that even their partner can have flaws, resulting in impaired judgements. This also causes them to overlook important aspects of the personality that may or may not project red flags in the relationship.

3. Sense of euphoria

The brain releases a high amount of dopamine, the feel-good hormone which helps men to feel euphoric. This also causes the heart to beat faster and palms to get sweaty as men feel very attracted to their partners.

4. Positive memories

When induced with a feeling of wholesome love, men will automatically start associating with positive thoughts and feelings. It will help them to create new, positive memories with their partner and will also help them get rid of emotional hurt or baggage from their previous relationships.

5. Fear of social judgements

When in love, men also seem to let go of their fear of societal judgements. They start acting all adorable and mushy with their partner, and most importantly, aren’t afraid to indulge in a little PDA as well. Your man will not hesitate to hold hands because he doesn’t care who says what about the relationship.
