1. Love works quickly.
It only takes up to 4 minutes to decide whether you like someone or not.
2. Hugging your significant other will instantly relieve stress.
If you’re feeling stressed, hug it out. A study conducted by psychiatrists at the University of North Carolina found increased levels of oxytocin—the hormone responsible for lower stress levels and mood boosts—in couples who embraced.
3. Animals get married too. Kind of.
We aren't the only species in the animal kingdom with monogamous relationships. Beavers, otters, wolves, seahorses, and barn owls are just some of the wild ones that commit to their partner for life.
4. There’s a cuddle hormone.
Oxytocin, a powerful hormone that acts as a neurotransmitter in the brain, is produced during an embrace or cuddle and is often referred to as the cuddle or love hormone.
5. Hearts become one.
Couples' hearts begin to beat at the same rate when they’re in a relationship. A study conducted by the University of California-Davis suggests there are physiological signals between two people in love.
