11 Surprising Ways That Happens To Your Body When You're In Love

Falling in love is confusing, scary, funny, and life-changing all at the same time. While many of the physical effects of being in love may be unique to you, scientists have been able to pinpoint neurological and physical explanations for some of the most common.

An expert breaks the process of falling in love into three different stages: lust, attraction, and attachment. The body reacts in specific ways during each stage based on brain chemistry and the release of various hormones.

Your body's physical response throughout these stages also depends on whether you are happy or dissatisfied in the romantic relationship. Your willingness to continue or break off the relationship is also influenced by these neurological factors.

1. You feel drunk
Oxytocin is the love hormone, and researchers have studied the effects of oxytocin and alcohol. Although they affect different parts of the brain, the outcome—feeling less inhibited, fearful, anxious, aggressive, or boastful—is the same.

2. Your cheeks flush, palms sweat, and heart races.
The stimulation of adrenaline and norepinephrine will cause you to sweat and feel anxious.

3. Your pupils dilate.
When you’re attracted to someone and you're near them, be it in bed in the morning or at a restaurant for dinner, your eyes dilate.

4. You feel sick.
Lovesickness is the stress hormone cortisol contracting the blood vessels in your stomach. This is what makes you feel sick before seeing someone new.

5. You could experience hysterical strength.
Falling in love isn’t strictly limited to couples. Many new mothers have so much love for their babies that when under extreme duress, they seem to have super-strength.

6. You can’t keep your eyes off your partner.
The desire to literally look at your love interest comes from the brain’s release of dopamine. When you scroll through photos of your weekend together, you feel a surge of energy as your desire is being fulfilled. Scientists say this is the same affect cocaine has on the brain.

7. Your voice will get higher.
When a woman speaks to a man she is physically attracted to, her voice will tend to get higher and more feminine.

8. You will worry when you’re not around them. Similar to a drug addict coming off their addiction, when you don’t spend time with your partner, you’ll feel more stressed, anxious, and depressed.

9. You may put on weight.
Researchers found that people do gain weight as they settle into marriage.

10. You might not sleep well.
Feel-good crush symptoms are known to disrupt sleep. You’re in the initial stages of euphoria, and that will cause you to have more energy in the mornings and evenings.

11. You may experience less chronic pain.
An all-consuming passionate love affair may work like medication and ease chronic pain. Why? Because intense feelings of love activate the same areas of the brain as painkillers.

Many aspects of love will always be a mystery to us, but these universal effects while falling in love has on many people's physical beings.
