FUN FACTS ABOUT LOVE–week of love

heart1Our week of love continues…..

I can’t go a week without either doing some form of trivia or fun little facts.

I searched the net and found this interesting article. I scratched my head on a few and some made me chuckle.

Check it out, and if you want to see the entire list  CLICK HERE.

— Men who kiss their wives in the morning live five years longer than those who don’t.

— People are more likely to tilt their heads to the right when kissing instead of the left (65 percent of people go to the right!)

— Two-thirds of people report that they fall in love with someone they’ve known for some time vs. someone that they just met.

— There’s a reason why office romances occur: The single biggest predictor of love is proximity.

— Love can also exert the same stress on your body as deep fear. You see the same physiological responses — pupil dilation, sweaty palms, and increased heart rate.

— Brain scans show that people who view photos of a beloved experience an activation of the caudate — the part of the brain involving cravings.

Now, I’m not endorsing the article from where I got these…I just thought a few of them were interesting. But, I must say, my most favorite idea of love is:

4Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. 5It is not rude, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. 6Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. 7It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres.  8Love never fails. But where there are prophecies, they will cease; where there are tongues, they will be stilled; where there is knowledge, it will pass away. 1 Corinthians 13: 4-8

Doesn’t get much better than that, does it?

    Funny, I go left when I kiss. Which, I guess, means my wife does too. And that’s fine, since we’ve never been ones to go with the flow.
