Do you really think that love can be quantified in the terms of several neurochemical reactions. I myself have never been in love but there are some people who are more susceptible to falling in love I think. Maybe this is because they have more of some kind of protein in there brain. In books and in movies people relate love to someone's soul which we haven't yet found. In Michael Cordy's book "Lucifer" they find away to connect to the soul but as far as I am aware it hasn't been done in real life yet.

Speaking as a man, most of us probably fall in love with a sudden rush of blood to a certain area.

But love is not "a sudden rush of blood to a certain area". It is something more than that. :) I'm female but I think our male members, who really knows love, will agree with me.

I've found this.Have a look at it:

A person who falls in love more easily than others probably doesn't have an excess amount of a certain protein, but is more likely suffering from insecurity or vunerability. Its psychological, actually.

What does that have to do with anything?

Back on the topic...

Love is kinda hard to quantify but if you were to ask about arousal, it would be much easier. Usually the signal cascade starts at the brain, causing euphoria and giddiness.

Enjoying one moment at a time;

love reaction also connected with hormone reaction which is represented by PEA (Phenylethylamine) as a 'happy' hormone... :D

It is all in Ozge's site.. Very interesting, bookmarked. And yes, i agree: when it comes to love, the whole is more than the sum of the parts
