We spend our lives craving it, searching for it, and talking about it. Although poets and songwriters can put many of our romantic thoughts and feelings into words, love is so inexplicable we need the help of science to explain it.Its meaning is felt more than it is clearly expressed. After all, psychologists have a lot to say about how and why people fall in love.Only rarely do these studies account for other possible causes of diminished psychological wellbeing.For instance, a test subject might be depressed because he or she just lost a great job, not because he or she is having casual sex and feels badly about that.
It seems rather inaccurate to say “falling in love” because experiencing love is more of a high that puts people on cloud nine.
From pornography to merely surfing the web, the Internet is clearly the television of the 21st century, an electronic drug that often yanks us away from the physical world.

While the desire for new romance is generally reasonable and expected, it requires a period of adjustment.
While socialization continues after you are settled into a marriage, the dynamics of a new romantic relationship become unnecessary to maintain.
