Check this out! Scientific differences between “Love” vs. “Lust” Great piece by my good friend Katrina!
Thinking about being “in” something, makes me think of being fully absorbed with something completely. Absorbed in thought, in spirit, in body, in mind and in soul. We are involved totally while focused…100% all “in” per se.
I grew up on fairy tales and love stories that taught me to believe that being in love and loving are the same thing. That couldn’t be any further from the truth.
When we say we are “in” love; what does that really mean?
Researchers say that an in love brain looks very different from one experiencing mere lust, and it’s also unlike a brain of someone in a long-term, committed relationship.
Being in love includes:
- Craving one another
- Focused attention
- Increased energy when together
- Motivation to do things that makes your mate happy
- Sexual attraction and thinking about them when apart
