It Turns Out That Falling in Love Makes Us Happier, but Less Intelligent

On average, men fall in love faster than women, and they are usually the first ones to say, “I love you.” Well, that’s how it usually starts, but right after both people have fallen for each other, we tend to follow the same path, often losing our minds for a while. Professors at Leiden University suggested that people who are in love have less control over their actions, and conducted some research to see if it’s true.

We think most people could feel like there’s something wrong with them when they’re in love, and we want to talk about this research that proves love is truly blind.

Falling in love makes us happier.

Researchers say that falling in love also affects our mental abilities. To check this, they conducted an experiment with 43 young people who have been in love for starting from one to 6 months. The participants were asked to do several tests before and after being put in an amorous mood by thinking about their loved ones and listening to romantic music. While in a romantic mood, the participants showed worse results on the tests.
