Do you believe in love at first sight? Confusion! Here is what experts think about the love at first sight.
A recent study suggests that, love at first sight may be a myth, lovers need to meet at least four times before cupid strikes.
The researchers from the Hamilton college in the United States gave pictures of people's faces to a group of young men and women. Their brains were wired to monitors as the participants ranked the attractiveness of people in the photos. Then, they showed the images for a second time to the participants. They rated the faces which they found attractive highly.
According to the researchers, the attraction was higher on the third occasion and strongest of all on the fourth. The Times of India reported, monitors showed extra activity around the excitement and pleasure centers of the brain.
Ravi Thiruchselvam, psychologist at Hamilton College, said that, "Much to their surprise, people often find themselves drawn to individuals after multiple encounters, even when there was no initial attraction."
"Cupid's arrow is often slow to strike. It may be attributable to the gradual change in attractiveness from repetition," he said.
