5 Ways Being In Love Changes You

  1. It causes us to do things we wouldn’t normally do.
  2. Love changes the body chemistry

    Our brain houses these intensely passionate feelings using the same system that’s activated when a person is addicted to drugs, from the euphoria you feel to your cravings for more.

  4. You start thinking as a couple
