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.
