It has been a proven hypothesis by psychological and social research, that people with the same level of attraction are a good fit for each other in relationships. Whether we know it or not, we are subconsciously in search for a partner who looks similar to us, with approximately an equal level of attraction. With 2 partners having differing levels of attractiveness in a relationship, this could possibly lead to the arising of insecurities in some cases! - Bored Panda


However, do note that attraction is not limited strictly in the physical sense, as it encompasses all traits which makes one socially desirable. This includes one's personality traits and behavioural attributes as well!

Heartbreak may have been dismissed as a metaphorical term to some, but research has proven that this condition actually exists, being know as the Broken Heart Syndrome. Upon going through traumatising events, such as through relationship break-ups or the loss of a loved one, this could affect one greatly and cause real physical pains in one's heart. In the event of such situations, experiencing of deep emotional distress actually triggers the brain to distribute chemicals which weakens one's heart, resulting in strong chest pains and shortness of breath. In cases, this condition could be misdiagnosed as a heart attack. - Bored Panda



6. Being In Love Heightens Our Nerve Cells

When we first fall in love, we tend to experience heightened senses due to a protein in our bodies - known as the Nerve Growth Factor (NFG). This protein seems to thrive especially during the 1st year of being in love, which heightens our senses and makes our fight or flight response system more active. - Life Hacks
