Anytime I link a website from mine, you can bet your butt that it means a lot to me and is relevant to my message here and my path in life. This website is authored by two scientist, Lucy Brown and Helen Fisher.
Lucy Brown is a Clinical Professor in Neurology at New York's Einstein College of Medicine. She holds a PhD in Functional Neuroanatomy and Movement Disorders, and has pioneered numerous groundbreaking studies on the neuroscience of romantic love.
Helen is a PhD Biological Anthropologist at Rutgers University and a Senior Research Fellow at the Kinsey Institute. Her work focuses on the evolution, brain systems, and cross-cultural patterns of romantic love, marriage, divorce, and infidelity. She is considered one of the leading experts in the field of love, and serves as Chief Scientific Advisor for Match.com. She has received the prestigious “Distinguished Service Award” from the American Anthropological Association. She has published books titled Anatomy of Love, Why We Love, and Why Him Why Her? Her TED talks have been viewed by millions.
In my research of “Love” and being in it, I wanted to learn why we fall in Love, why we choose who we choose in an intimate relationship, and, the why, the how, and the what that causes the feeling of being in love to dissipate between one or both people in the intimacy. My research lead me to the discovery of Helen Fisher, PhD. D., and her work on the subject matter. Ms. Fisher has written many books on the subject matter. The following are links to the books I am most familiar with:
I would encourage you to click your way over to Ms. Brown's and Ms. Fisher's website to learn about what happens to us when we fall in love. There is so much literature, videos, blog posts, and other great sources on the subject matter.
I recently saw Helen Fisher on a debate about whether dating apps have killed romance or not. One of my favorite quotes during the debate was the following by Helen Fisher, "Women piling into the workforce is what's killing romance. Not dating apps." She also said that dating apps shouldn't be referred to as dating apps. The better term would be "introduction apps". I couldn't agree more with Helen on this. As a matter of fact, I cover this subject in great detail in my eBook, "Dating App Strategy Guide". If you're single and utilizing dating apps to increase the amount of dating opportunities, you should download this today!
The debate was a lot of fun to watch. You can also view it by clicking on the image below:

What Can This Website Do For Me?"We are scientists, not astrologists, psychics, or kitchen witches. We don’t read tea leaves to tell you why you fall in love, whether a particular relationship will last forever, if your partner is cheating, or what phase the moon should be when you attempt a reconciliation. We’re not even love advisers, or wise friends giving advice. We’re not therapists, either. We help people manage love in a different way. We offer an educational and fun look at the surprising science behind romance and love. This will give you insights into yourself that will help you manage. We offer easy brain science, but we’re the “real deal.” We did the science. We give the TED talks about it, and we know the questions people need answered. We can help you understand why you feel the way you do, teach you how others in your situation tend to react, and give you some scientifically valid techniques and principles for maximizing your success in love. If you found your way here, you must be interested in love. And no wonder! Love is arguably the most powerful feeling of all. Yet it is also the most confusing. Whether you are currently in love, wondering if you will ever fall in love, losing the spark, or coping with heartbreak, we can help you understand and manage. You see, love is not just an emotion or feeling like euphoria and happiness. It is like hunger or thirst. That’s why it’s hard to control."
