Stage 2: Attraction This second stage is classic love part often featured in romantic comedies. When people are in stage 2, they lose their appetite and often need less sleep. They instead find it more interesting to daydream about you-know-who.
During this stage, body secretes a number of hormones. One of these hormones is serotonin. It is one of love’s most important chemicals and it may actually make people temporarily insane.
Stage 3: Attachment If you have guts to talk to that person, then you may well have entered this stage. If a relationship is going to last, this attachment process is last stage.
Attachment is a longer lasting commitment and is bond that keeps couples together when they start having children.
But are all these stuff really important at all? Scientists think so. By understanding paths that regulate social attachments, scientists might be able to deal with some people’s inability to form relationships. Some people even see love being guaranteed in future generation because love will be chemically provided: in pills.
Well when we say that love is madness, it’s sort of true literally speaking. And if you still doubt this, that hormone serotonin is there, somewhere in your body, to prove it.
