Why Love?

Research shows that selfless love makes us happy

Selfless love stems from deep compassion and desire for someone else’s happiness.  It activates the same reward part of the brain as cocaine.  This kind of love also deactivates the parts of the brain that cause us to think about ourselves.  This shows that humans have an innate ability to truly put others before themselves.


Love is when the other person’s happiness is more important than your own.

-H. Jackson Brown, Jr.

When we make friends then we change from being animals to being human.

Romantic love is addictive.

Romantic love causes wanting and craving, and it activates the same pleasure centers of the brain as cocaine.  Indeed, romantic love is one of the most addictive substances on earth.  That is why people commit suicide, commit crimes of passion, give up everything, and even start wars over love.  When a breakup occurs, the craving parts of the brain are activated at even higher levels, because cravings become worse when we can’t get what we want.  Whether we are broken up or in a relationship, humans just can’t get enough of romantic love.

You can search throughout the entire universe for someone who is more deserving of your love and affection than you are yourself, and that person is not to be found anywhere. You yourself, as much as anybody in the entire universe deserve your love and affection.

One theory of romantic love claims that it is one of the three systems developed in mammals and birds to direct reproduction.  The three systems are: the sex drive (to motivate individuals to seek a range of mating partners), attraction (to motivate individuals to prefer and pursue specific partners), and attachment (to motivate individuals to remain together long enough to complete species-specific parenting duties).
