When you’re in love with a cute boy, but your insecure and depressed and you don’t want to go to school but you can only see him at school. And when he loves your friend. And you know they like each other. 😢

Me: I just wanted to say... I love you! Me: You Make me feel so amazing! Now that we’re together, I feel so much better about, well, everything! You make me so energised. We can take on the world, together! Me: *hugs pizza box with pizza inside* Me: Plus, you’re totally good enough to eat. I mean, look at you!

Love is the most powerful force on earth, sometimes, we don't always have to rely on science for answers, God gives us these feelings.

Love is just an illusion of temporary limerence. Wedding day: "I promise to love you forever." Two years later: "We're getting a divorce."

Just hearing the complex yet in a way simplistic scientific description of love is in a way heartbreaking but yet so heartwarming. I need a hug.

Love isn't real. It's just a way that people exploit others for their own benefit. The feeling you feel when you are "in love" is just a chemical reaction.

hey ASAPScience! question about love decreasing the levels of serotonin... I always thought of serotonin as the "happy neurotransmitter" and that low levels of serotonin are found in people experiencing depression. Isn't that a bit contradictory, since love decreases these levels but doesn't make someone feel more depressed?

For you are talking about dopamine and pleasures. For God(THE HOLY FATHER,JESUS CHRIST,THE HOLY SPIRIT) IS LOVE. AND YOU MUST STOP THE SIN OR YOU SHALL GO TO HELL. JESUS CHRIST LOVES YOU SO MUCH THAT DIED ON THE CROSS FOR OUR SINS. FOR THE PENALTY OF SIN IS DEATH. FOR SIN MEANS BREAKING THE TEN COMMANDMENTS OF GOD AND TWO EXTRA FROM JESUS. For watch out the devil satan is jealous with all the Love and praise that GOD was getting and now he hates GOD AND HE HATES US AND satan will not stop to bring you down to hell. Like lead you away from JESUS FOR JESUS IS THE ONLY REASON THAT YOU CAN GO TO HEAVEN. BE WARNED....

No one will ever understand what true unconditional love is.. until they experience it for themselves. I used to be a loner before I met my Twin Flame. I didn't care about anyone.. but myself. One day.. I felt a man starring at me. Naturally.. I would not give a shit. Because.. that's how I am. But when our eyes met.. something changed in me. For the first time in my life.. I felt attraction for another human being. I wanted to know who he was and where he came from. It's been 12 years now.. and I can't stop thinking about him. Love doesn't care about your physical appearance.. hormones or chemical reaction. Love goes beyond logical thinking. Love isn't about.. pride, egoism or obsession. It's about giving.. and when you're in love.. you want to give him or her the whole world and all of you. I feel like I'm wasting my time here.. since most people haven't even experienced love. But you'll understand when you grow up and fall in love. Then you'll understand that all of this.. is just bullshit.

I have a very good question. So I'm deeply in love with a girl I've met just 3 months ago and we love each other very much, is it normal to cry of happiness whenever we think how much we love and feel for each other?

Falling in love hurts more the "smarter" you are. I know almost all high school relationships end in heartbreak, but I love her and don't want to see her with anyone else. But if I go out with her we'll break up. See my dilemma?
