It’s something that people love to imagine happening for themselves, something that we read about all the time in romance novels, and something that gets used over and over again in the movies, but is love at first actually a real thing? If you have experienced it, then you are adamant that it’s real, but if you have never been in love, you can’t imagine something so instant and overwhelming like that ever happening! This is what science has to say about love at first sight!
1. Love is a Drug
Looks like Roxy Music have been right this whole time! When you fall for someone, a chemical reaction occurs in your brain that releases lots of dopamine and serotonin, so much so that a scan of your brain can actually look the same as someone who is high on heroin! This initial effect can last as long as four days, so it is easy to see how a first meeting with someone you are incredibly attracted to can feel like love at first sight.
