Falling in love is a refinement of lust that allows people to find a mate. This state is characterized by feelings of exhilaration, and intrusive,
obsessive thoughts about the object of ones affection. According to her book, Why We Love: The Nature and Chemistry of Romantic Love, Dr  Helen Fisher of Rutgers University suggests that the actual behavioral patterns of those in love — such as attempting to evoke reciprocal responses in ones loved one — resemble obsessive compulsive disorder (OCD).   

Psychologists have shown it takes between 90 seconds and 4 minutes to begin the process of falling in love.

Research has shown attraction is:

55% through body language

38%  through tone and speed of their voice

And only 7% is through what they say

Kissing can literally serve as a taste test for true love.
"There can be testosterone in men's saliva." says Jeffrey Kluger, the science editor at Time magazine. A kiss could potentially determine whether a couple's genes are compatible enough to produce a healthy offspring.

When you kiss, a cluster of genes called MHC are exchanged in the mouth through saliva. If your genes are too similar there could be
problems carrying a baby to term.

Smell also plays a role in falling in love. In a study of exotic dancers, women who were ovulating made an average of $70 in tips an hour. Those who were in the nonfertile part of their cycle only made $35.

For a woman, a deep, confident voice is attractive because it suggests an abundance of testosterone. One study showed the richer a man's voice, the more children he had.

Scientists say the birth control pill may cause a woman to pick the wrong mate, because altered hormones mess with nature. When a woman is on the pill, she may like a man. When she's off, he may no longer be the right guy.

Enduring an emotional crisis together such as a death or a plane crash can make people think they're in love even if they're not. Alcohol or
drugs can also confuse things.
