‘Why do people love?’

Falling in love is a magical experience that happens between two people.
We usually fall in love with a person that we find attractive and appropriate for us, but also someone who shows that they are attracted to us. The fact that they are attracted to us offers a significant opportunity — when we observe this, we feel a surge of exhilaration!
Contrary to what most people think, the statistics show that most people fall in love with someone that they have known for a while. People only report falling in love quickly about 1/3 to 40 percent of the time. Of course, this varies from culture to culture. Falling in love happens differently between cultures but it does occur in most cultures.
Two important characteristics, kindness and intelligence, are extremely important in the process of falling in love and attractiveness is not connected to these things. These two attributes are things that people learn about someone from knowing them over time. Intelligence is important in all aspects of life, especially in love. But kindness is the strongest indicator for a successful long-term relationship.
