I must tell you that there are quite a few things you might not know about love.

I didn’t know them either, until I came across a very interesting article written by Barbara Fredrickson, who is the Kenan Distinguished Professor of Psychology and director of the Positive Emotions and Psychophysiology Laboratory at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill and also the author of an amazing book, "Love 2.0: How Our Supreme Emotion Affects Everything We Feel, Think, Do, and Become." Even if you think that it’s more important to feel than think sometimes, you should still be aware of these next few things you might not know about love:

1. It Can Be Hard to Talk about Love in Scientific Terms

One of the most surprising things you might not know about love is the fact that it can be hard to talk about it in scientific terms because everyone has strong, pre-existing ideas about it.

You may be surprised to find out, but apparently love isn’t romance, isn’t sexual attraction and isn’t that special bond between you and your family.2

As your body experiences it, “it’s a micro-moment of connection shared with another.”

That love can increase your heart rate and have more blood pulse trough your system. However, a heart break can literally cause your heart to break. Traumatizing emotions can cause the blood to pump back into the chambers and stretch out your heart strings. Your heart can literally collapse from a heart break.
