Did you know that a long-term relationship is beneficial to your health?
Apparently people in committed lasting relationship have better health and fewer doctor visits!
Research says all kinds of positive things happen to our bodies when we cultivate a happy and long relationship!
Everything from depression a better immune system and even pain control!
We are biological organic social animals hardwired for connection. Loving and being loved is a basic human need. In fact without human connection we cannot function as human beings in the long term
Recent Research says that romantic love is similar in its manifestations and as powerful as hunger! WOW! You can’t even go 8 hours without giving in to your appetite and some people go years without love…
According to author and anthropologist Helen Fisher (author of “why we love”) there are three desires linked to the drive behind love:
sexual attraction, romantic love and attachment.
Guess which one the good doc found was the most powerful?
Nope, it’s not sex, its actually romance! And then she ads a really really, striking comment : “people don’t die for sex, they die for love, live for love!” True dat doc! True dat!
So if romance is more powerful then sex to sustain a long-term relationship (which is, as we stated above good for your health and longevity) the trick is to keep romance alive during the stages of attachment). Attachment is beautiful but the point is to keep those dopamine levels up and to keep things interesting as we sustain our amazing long-term union!
