To have butterflies in the stomach are not the only reaction in your body when you are in love.
A hot kiss can awaken more parts in you and boost your joy.
See some fascinating things that also happen in the body.
When you are in love
Your brain changes.
Falling in love activates about 12 areas of the brain, and the result is that you can fall in love in a fifth of a second. So love at first sight exists.
Your heart beats slower.
Falling in love affects your hormones, causing your blood pressure and heart rate to drop.
Soreness and pain are relieved.
Love activates the same receptors in the brain’s nerve cells as painkillers, according to a study from Stanford University.
You become forgetful.
When you are in love, your brain releases oxytocin (also called the love hormone), which can impair memory and make you more distracted.
Everything tastes sweeter.
In a study by the American Psychological Association, test subjects had to write about love and then taste a variety of foods and beverages. Whatever they tasted, they said everything had a sweet taste.
You get distracted more easily.
As you constantly think about your loved one, you have a harder time concentrating and focusing, according to a study published in the journal Motivation and Emotion.
When you kiss
Face and mouth
It all starts with a tilt to the right. 80% of us angle our heads that way when we’re ready to kiss. When the lips make contact, a sensory explosion occurs. Lips are 200 times more sensitive than our supersensitive fingertips. While kissing, your nose is buried by his scent, which emits chemical lures that can intensify your “greeting”.
If you are really in love with him, a kiss sends shock waves through your whole body, which can help increase blood flow to certain areas – especially nipples, abdomen and genitals.
The physical joy of kissing can cause your brain to produce dopamine, a neurotransmitter associated with joy. At the same time, the brain shuts down negative emotions. At the same time, the hormone Oxytocin is released. It is associated with empathy, trust, sexual activity, and relationship-building. It is sometimes referred to as the “love hormone,” because levels of oxytocin increase during hugging and kissing.
Any kind of intimacy can reduce tension and instead increase the feeling of happiness. Couples who kiss each other often are more likely to have long and satisfying relationships.
