We’ve all been there. Your body stopped feeling like your own. Butterflies fluttered in your stomach; you were almost nauseous. Your heart threatened to beat right out of your chest. You felt flustered, and your palms started to sweat the moment you saw that person. You could not think straight for days. And, oh, you could hardly sleep. You felt giddy; you felt terrific. You had just met someone you really liked.
For a long time, human beings thought that emotions like lust, love, attraction, and attachment arose from the heart. However, science has proven that the brain is responsible for all these emotions.
The most important organ for love is the brain, not the heart.
When you meet someone you like, your brain triggers the release of various chemicals into your body. These chemicals alter your mental state, and you find yourself perceiving and behaving differently from your usual self. There are many physical reactions in our bodies when we meet someone we like, but they all begin in the brain.
