Fun Love Facts

  • Being in love produces the same physiological responses as fear: pupil dilation, sweaty palms, and increased heart rate.
  • Men who kiss their wives each morning live five years longer than those who don?t.
  • Medical experts suggest you are more likely to catch a common cold by shaking hands than by kissing.
  • Love and marriage are boosts for your health, so much so that one doctor admitted that if a new drug had the same impact, virtually every doctor in the country would be recommending it.
  • According to research, love at first sight is not just a fairy tale. If a person is in the right emotional frame of mind, it can take as little as 30 seconds to fall in love. Physical appearance tops the list for attraction, but a desire to know more about the person is another factor. Interestingly, men fall first but are usually the most fickle, a sign that it is possible to fall in love with more than one person at a time.
