Science proves that love is blind

Science proves that love is blind


They have found that feelings of love lead to a suppression of activity in the areas of the brain controlling critical thought.
It seems that once we get close to a person, the brain decides the need to assess their character and personality is reduced.
The study, by University College London, is published in NeuroImage.
The researchers found that both romantic love and maternal love produce the same effect on the brain.

    “Love is not just physical attraction. It is every single thing the other person is. Every word he says, every step he takes, every move he makes. Love transcends all limits, all boundaries, even expectations… love rules.”

    Health is becoming less and less of an issue as people live longer despite being unfit. People need to realize that beauty is not skin deep, it’s an overall assessment of someone’s health (and ultimately their children’s health). Quality of life is more important that quantity, so if you want to be happy, be fit.

    Why did you label this article Science proves that love is blind and show pictures of a large women and a skinny man, when you could have presented to television models in really tight clothes, then showed up the stupid one, no common seance or a handsome man with a small penis married to a very beautiful woman rich woman that is very smart. Or the most ugliest woman married to the biggest penis man and the man is very very handsome and smart and poor.
    There are so many different types and shapes of people in this world. Some people will never go on a date, some will never find love, everyone wants a prize to bag and bring home to show mommy what they caught.
    The first time I thought I had a winner, my mother said to me that girl is a tramp, after two years with her momma was right again.
    So the morel her is just because she looks unattractive to you does not mean shes not someone else queen.

    I think that it’s quite touching. And for all those who are getting sick and over commenting on the unattractiveness of the two parties of which the pictures feature; NO ONE CARES WHAT YOU THINK ABOUT THEIR LOOKS. Just be happy for them and hope you find that kind of love yourself in the future.

    When it comes to the human male attraction to human females, I believe there are two kinds of guys: “Shallow” and “Deep”. Both types of males start out almost the same regarding their initial attraction to women: They are primarily initially attracted (or repelled) by a woman’s appearance. But after that, the similarity ends.
    With a shallow man, his likelihood of believing that he’s found the woman of his dreams is directly proportional to how beautiful he finds that woman. The shallow man is primarily motivated (consciously or unconsciously) by physical attraction.
    Contrarily, while a “deep” man’s initial attraction is usually based on the woman’s physical appearance, as the relationship develops over time, his desire to have a relationship with her will be decreasingly influenced by her appearance and increasingly influenced by her personality and personal values.

    The woman in the photos very likely has a wonderful personality. As far as the man, well, most guys will SAY that they value a woman’s mind over her looks, but how many of us really mean it? This guy obviously doesn’t just talk the talk, but walks the walk!

    To Cerber: Maybe your gene pool wouldn’t benefit from an injection from their gene pool, but your descendants would surely benefit from the intermarriage, since they would be exposed to more enlightened social views that those you would’ve passed down to them.

    There has to be a genetic factor to being attracted by looks. Personally I think there is an AGE factor; that is, when you are older you look deeper.

    Why hasn’t anyone thought that maybe he has a sexual fetish for large women? That does exist.

    Love is actually nothing more than a chemical reaction that occurs in the brain to ensure that a woman stays with her mate long enough to raise a child. The chemicals affect you for about two years then they disappear.

    They don’t look happy together…

    She looks amazed and THRILLED that something (sorry) someONE was willing to marry her.

    He looks afraid…very afraid.

    And he probably should be. Her massive girth *might* be genetic, but it’s most likely due to severe emotional trauma – that’ll be sure to come out later on in their marriage.

    As he looks to be more the nerdy type who’s just never really been popular with the ladies, he’ll be happy in the marriage – unless he’s a late bloomer…

    In that case, when the looks kick in, and the women start asking HIM out…the marriage will be doomed.

    BUT IT SURE IS GREAT TO PRETEND THEY’LL ALWAYS BE HAPPY TOGETHER!

    Okay, everyone keeps saying that the girls are getting pissed, but I’m a girl, and I lol’d. I hope they’re happy together, they do look like they love each other.

    And to what several people above have said, yes, there is something biological about being attracted to people who are beautiful, but it isn’t cut and dry. Men are attracted to women with boobs and at least some sort of hips because it shows fertility, symmetry of the face shows health, as does nice hair, and plump lips shows sexual maturity.

    to all you romantics out there:
    technically love is mostly facial symmetry, similarity in looks and constant presence (the more time you spend together).

    What an offensive article. Love is not physical attraction. They imply that his reasoning is flawed just because he fell in love with someone who is not very attractive.

    i approve what someone had said above – all of you who loose breath and bow before this so-called god-given and sacred love are nothing more than hypocrites.

    honestly, do you ever stop to think why humans have reached a point in their path where more and more people are born and/or suffer from genetic diseases, viruses mutate and so on? maybe, just maybe the reason lies int he fact that people who should never be allowed to produce offspring do (yeah, i know it sounds racist, but open your eyes and see it). in nature the sick and unfit animals die – it’s cruel, but this way every generation carries only the best of genes and is perfectly capable of adapting to its surroundings or surviving viral outbreaks,etc. what happens in the human society? we have hundreds of organizations, which defend the rights of poor,diseased, weak human beings to procrastinate – i am sorry, but i DON’T think it’s a good idea HIV-infected and malnourished africans to give birth to 4-5 children, nor is it ok for poor, again diseased indians to do so. Western culture screams and defends this people’s rights, but what you fail to see is that this way we are seriously fucking up our genetic fond and in the near future it will turn against us. Seriously, nothing personal – just biology.

    by the way – i am sick and tired of everyone bombarding me with anti-smoking advertisements. I am a vegetarian, perfectly fit and yeah, i can afford this bad habit. But what do we do about overweight americans, who are so weak psychologically that they need to drive their mini fat person van to Mcdonalds, because they can’t stop stuffing their face? I am sorry, but being this fat shows complete disregard of respect for oneself, and for others for that matter …So yeah – no sensible human being (not at all a wonderful person like someone called this tube of lard) will do this do themselves or their partner…

    xenomorph—- Go have a veggie burger and reconsider your arguments. They are poor, insufficient, and most importantly hypocritical. If I’m going to worry about the future of my species, my main concern is going to be stupidity…from people like you.

    I’ll do you a favor and break your argument down for you.

    First of all you state that people who ‘suffer’ should not have children and follow this up by saying you know this might sound racist. Are you suggesting only one particular race suffers from mutations, viruses etc? Have you left your house recently? Read the news perhaps? Diseases, mutations, death and sickness are rife throughout the entire world. Causes can be traced back to numerous factors, many that have nothing to do with the things you seem so overly concerned about. And newsflash, white people have just as many problems as the diseased ‘brown’ people.

    Your little biology lecture suggests a serious lack in formal education if only because you make it sound like by being fat or sick you are certain to pass on these traits to your children and this is simply not true. Certain aspects are hereditary yes, but being fat doesn’t mean your children will, nor does being sick give your children less of a chance at life.

    My favorite part of your whole sermon was where you said you smoke and can ‘afford’ the bad habit. Alright. So lets say someone is heavy but doesn’t drink, doesn’t smoke, works out and takes vitamins. They also would be able to ‘afford’ the habit. Don’t stand on your soap box being all zealous when you’re busy inhaling smoking ash into your lungs. If you’re so concerned about the future why not think of what all that second hand smoke is doing?

    Nobody can tell you what to think or how to feel, but maybe before you go putting it all out there, you’ll get a little bit better reasoning. All people have just as much of a right to live and love as you do, how dare you even for a second think that you’re better than the rest of the population. You’re subject to the course of nature just as much as the rest of us.

    I completley agree with Xeno, I have held the same outlook on human life for a long time. They shouldnt be allowed to mate…well her anyway, look at the rest of her family, that is seriously messed up, the only reason they are that way is because the first person that ever bred in their family did breed and sucessfuly raise, god knows how many children, beauty isnt skin deep in the long run, beauty (most of the time) will help your children to create offspring. (I say most of the time due to the fact that there is this horrible student at my high school who’s parents are good looking and rich yet he is a complete deusche and will never actually make a baby…well I hope to god not)
