Psychology of Romantic Love

Men in love show more activity in the visual part of the brain, while women in love show more activity in the part of the brain that governs memory. Behavioral psychologists speculate that men have to size up a woman visually to see how well she may bear babies, while women have to observe and remember aspects of man's behavior to determine if he would be an adequate provider. Women often feel loved when talking face to face with their partner, while men often feel closer to their partners when they work, play, or talk side by side. In one clinical experiment, strangers of the opposite sex were together for 90 minutes where they talked about intimate details of their lives, and stared into each other's eyes. Many felt a deep attraction for each other, and two couples married within six years.

As romantic love dwindles, a more stable love sets in. To remain in love for a lifetime, therapists advise couples to listen actively, ask questions about feelings, and stay physically fit. If a man meets a woman in a dangerous situation, such as on a trembling bridge, he is more likely to fall in love with her than if he met her in a normal setting, such as in an office. Girls are more likely to fall in love if they are looking for adventure, craving to leave home, are lonely, displaced in a foreign country, or passing into a new stage of life. Women around the world are more likely to fall in love with partners with ambition, education, wealth, respect, status, and a sense of humor. According to social psychologists, women prefer distinctive cheekbones and a strong jawbone, which are linked to testosterone levels.
