Did U Know There is Blood Test For Detecting Love ?

Hormones Produce Love
Our brain generate love using the same mechanism by which it seeks out other rewards, such as food, drink, shelter, drugs, video, games, perhaps love is not as closely linked to addiction as one might think. Love is constructed by several brain regions. The tegmentum is fired up by attractiveness and indeed, stalking behavior may result from over activity of reward-seeking pathway, but thinking about love activates other brain regions-the caudate nucleus and ‘fusiform’ and ‘angular’ gyri(ridges) of the cortex. Love is after all a many splendored thing, so it should come as no surprise that several different parts of the brain are needed to produce it.
Did you know that there are two hormones which produce love?
Oxytocin and arginine vasopressin are the ‘hormones of love in humans’. We certainly secrete both of them: oxytocin causes uterine contraction during birth and ejection of breast milk during suckling, while arginine vasopressin makes us produce concentrated urine. These chemicals play an important role in ‘love ‘related phenomena. When Oxytocin is sniffed into nose, it produces trust. Arginine Vasopressin is involved in inter-male aggression and male sexual arousal, also a surge of oxytocin is released to orgasm in both sexes, lasting up to 30 minutes. Within the brain, these chemicals could promote a feeling of ‘attachment ‘to others, and may create emotional bond that forms between parents and children’s, as well as between lovers. The transmitters  dopamine and serotonin are probably involved in the mechanism underlying mood, so it is no surprise  their level also change when we fall in love-the former increasing and the latter decreasing .This alter the activities of cerebral cortex, perhaps causing the cognitive alteration often described subjectively as ‘losing one’s senses’. Along with oxytocin and arginine vasopressin data, this suggests that love involves pervasive re-balancing of neurotransmitter in brain. All this help to draw two people together, establish them as a intensely attractive in each other’s eyes, suppress their inhibition and alter their cognition and judgement. The multi-chemical nature of love also means that we should be cautious about how we play with people’s brain chemistry. The selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors commonly used to treat depression alter levels of not only serotonin, but also dopamine, oxytocin and arginine vasopressin.

Till date we know that there are various blood test for detecting diseases but now there are even blood test to detect Love disease .Nerve growth factor is a protein involved in the formation and maintenance of nervous system .Level of nerve growth factor in the blood increase when people fall in love, and rather sweetly the increase correlates with the reported intensity of their romantic feeling. This does not mean that increased amounts of nerve growth factor ‘cause ‘the love, as love could just easily be causing the increase in nerve growth factor. But this increased level of chemicals invariably decline after a year or two. This suggest that there is cerebral cut-off which limits the initial surge of romance, just as  the adolescent tendency for intense infatuation lasts only two to three years. So when you fall into Love and you face problem in your love life ,breakup with your partner , then don’t feel guilty about this fact and blame yourself that why did u meet the latter and why did u fall in love with latter , because once you start feeling guilty about yourself then you experience all negative vibes in life and ultimately go into depression so the best way is to think positively and think that it was not your fault , it is a human phenomena , the function of your hormones which creates feeling of “love” and emotional factor which leads to breakup , “breakup” never takes place from one side there is some kind of misunderstanding from both the partners.Thus there is no point of lamenting over and feeling guilty about it when you where not only the person who was involved i it but both of the couples where involved in “Love “and “breakup”.

Teenage Romance

Intensity of Teenage Romance
The defining feature of adolescent romantic relationship ids intensity  .There is a period of three years during adolescence when romantic attachment are often so intense that they are described physically painful. After this period of infatuation the drive to be with targets of one’s amorous desire is still strong .Novelty is the another feature of teenage romantic relationship .You have little experience of love hen you are a teenagers and it can feel delightfully and frighteningly unfamiliar .Romantic Love is entirely outside a teenagers experience, at least the first time because this is one form of social interaction for which platonic friendship do not prepare us.
One question that arises in Readers Mind is, How Secure and Supported Teenagers feel in their romantic Relationships and how they view their friendship?
Maybe friendship and love are simply very different Things and this presumably explains the strong emotional jarring often reported  when a previously platonic friendship  metamorphoses into a romantic one .Surprisingly there is one prior relationship  with our parents :teenagers feeling of security in matters romantic correlate well with how much they  say they are supported by their parents , so this is one of the reason  for parents to try and maintain good relation with teenage children, even when there does not seem to be much reciprocation .
LOVE is tough; it has difficult, painful aspects that can hit inexperienced, vulnerable teenagers hard. The first reason for this is that ‘love’ consumes us and drive us ‘mad ‘or in more scientific terms it subverts our cognitive fuctions.Teenagers sleep less when they are in Love, although they may wake more rested and feel more alert during day, they find it harder to concentrate, certain teenagers develop erroneous convictions that another person loves them _a state that in adults are considered abnormal:’emotional’. Indeed teenage love has even been claimed to resent a state of disordered mood and thought only slightly removed from mental illness. As well as neglecting other aspects of life, the urge for romantic fulfilment can cause all sorts of problem, including unpremeditated infidelity and acquisition of sexually transmitted disease. The thought-altering effects of love are also what make it pleasurable-it is matter of letting yourself go, and falling helplessly into a new mental state.
Another Complication in love is jealousy, romantic love  almost always involves an element of protectiveness  about ones partner, even if it is never articulated, in this racy, fluid teenage world, sexual jealousy often builds to a point where it cause conflict between partners. Teenagers are simply very attractive to each other, so most teenage relationship is continually beset by the predatory interest of others. This is worsened by the widely reported tendency of humans in romantic relationship to retain some interest in the attractiveness and availability of others. In fact jealousy is such an established part of adolescent romantic life that many teenagers report that they worry if their parents are never jealous.
Teenage romantic activities can have direct effect on mental well-being. Just as the first flush of infatuation can be intensely felt, the end of adolescent love affair can be a shattering experience; lost love can trigger clinical anxiety and depression, probably because it is often leads to a period of intense introspection. Most of us find it very difficult to explain the end of a romantic relationship, even when we are the partners who have actively caused split .In the absence of clear reasons for breaking up, many teenagers can direct the blame inwards, assuming the relationship failed because of some intrinsic defect in themselves. Self blame can destroy a teenager’s fragile self-esteem-a – well-trodden path of depression. Many teenagers also respond by learning to tolerate subsequent relationships which, while superficially providing the frame work of a long-term romantic pair-bond, are inherently destructive or abusive and serve only to perpetuate low expectations of how they deserve to be treated.
So what is love?

Is it a feeling , an ambition, a commitment, an internal personal struggle , a social contract or is it a human’ way of coping with the realization of death: that only love makes it possible to temporarily forget the terrible fact of our own morality .But I wonder what is teenage love ? Adolescence is the time we first discoverable all have an uncontrollable drive to seek the affection of strangers. Unlike most drives, which can be satisfied by the acquisition of some goal, be it food, comfort or sex, the drive to love is uniquely unsatisfied , love is an unquenchable thirst-it is the only drive that cannot be calmed by possession of its target, You cannot ‘possess ‘ another person, because they remain an autonomous ,independent ,unpredictable being. Romantic Relationships are often an emotional pendulum swinging between a warm togetherness which can become oppressive, and a refreshing separateness which can become lonely. Love cannot be satisfied because a loved one cannot be fully ‘acquired’. If something is worth having, then it probably cannot truly have. So if love is this tremendous productive –destructive mental force built into teenagers, what are the biological processes which generate it?
