When you FEEL love, which part of our body feels it?

Report as

Kind of like in your head and in your whole chest and stomach area i guess. It's hard to explain.

It is... but the heart only pumps blood. Love comes from the brain.
Report as
really???......umhum.... don't know....
but i know that when my mom does something for me it always touches my heart...:]
Report as
These guys are too logical... I think I know a bit about love... Not just" oh he's so cute!" But like, actually risk your life for them... For my lil bro. And the guy I like, I feel hollow when not near him, and even thinking bout him makes my heart race...
Report as
Yes... it does make your heart race... because your brain releases the chemicals to make it do so.
Sinful... touching your heart is an expression... unless she actually touches your heart... which can be pretty gross.
Report as
Alright, explain the empty hole...
Report as
You explain it?? Does your heart go away?? It is just a feeling... something that again, comes from your brain and central nervous system.
Report as
wow wow WOW............. i know that touching the heart is an expression Neanderthal.............i always feel real happy and warm and I feel it in my heart....
but that is just me....maybe everybody has got different feeling for different people....and maybe they feel it in different places.... as far as i'm concern the only LOVE i know is b/w my mother, father, friends etc.....and so i feel like this....

it's up to everyone ...... let them feel it where ever they want....
Report as
i know that it's because of all the hormones and all.....
let's just not fight about all this....
Report as
LOL... whatever. I am just trying to explain that the only thing your heart does is pump blood. It does not control emotions. Never has.
Report as
PEACE l!!!!!!!!!!!..........:P
Report as
oh well....everybody has got different opinions.... let's just keep it that way...:]
Report as
Sigh- he has a point... Besides, I'd rather not waste my time arguing with someone who just doesn't get it, especially cause this is making me depressed about HIM... •_;
Report as
They arent opinions though. Medical knowledge has come so far that we now know that the heart pumps blood. It is a miracle how it keeps it up for as long as it does. But that is all it does.
Report as
uumhum..... u sure know a LOT on medical things.....
but anyways.... let it be....everybody thinks of things differently.... everyone has got different feelings.....so i just thought it's bst to let it be....u know....:]
Report as
That is because I worked in the medical career field for a long time. That is a good way to acquire medical knowledge.
Report as
oh !!!!..........o.o...
that's cool.... so u r a doctor???

Nods head- on that note... Later!!!

It should be your heart... But for those who don't think of in love being different than making love... It's southwards... -_-

Actually it should be from your brain. Your heart pumps blood.... thats all.

Obviously, you've never experienced your heart pounding faster than a hummingbirds wings can move, or the deep hollow feeling when you miss them...

Hey where do you think that the heart is pumping blood to
Report as
I have... but an accelerated heart rate is still caused by your brain as well. Your heart only pumps blood. Your brain controls everything. They should put brains on Valentines Day cards.

icic6772.... everywhere... and it controlled by your brain too. Amazing huh?

Are you guys nerds? Like, a+ average people? Because I don't feel my hollowness in my head... It's in the left side of my chest, right, where. My. Heart. Is...
Report as
Nean why you gotta be smart on us
Report as
Thank you! Finally, someone who understands!
Report as
Lunar.... Your heart is in the center of your chest... not on the left side. The heart is HEARD loudest on the left side because the left ventricule is the strongest part of the heart. It has to pump blood to your entire body.

The feelings of love toward someone come from your brain. Physical responses to emotions usually mean sweating, increased heart beat and breathing, sweaty palms, dry mouth, and dilated pupils.

You guys are too logical... And probly haven't experienced love...

I gave an actual answer. Saying "soul" or "heart" wouldn't make any sense.
Report as
Does to me... I literally feel it where my heart is... No where else...
Report as
That's the increased heart beat I was talking about.

And hollow emptiness?

Are you being sarcastic? I'm not a robot lol it's just hard to tell reading it.

No no, the hollow empty feeling I have when in not with him and think boy him... Like now...

Oh okay. I'm pretty sure that is your brain, but whatever floats your boat.

You recognize it with your brain, which in turn sends out the signals that you FEEL with the rest of your body - for example, the warm, fuzzy feeling in your heart, the butterflies in your stomach, the tingling of your skin, etc.

U don't feel love u feel some of the side affect's from the chemicals/hormones your body is releasing into your body when u feel affection towards someone/something.

Helpful Fun Thanks for voting Comments (2)
Report as
That applies to emotions. Because when the chemicals ear off, the emotion goes away. But with the feelings, its different. Because feelings remain. But the chemicals dont keep the same reaction, but yet, the feelings stay. So you can feel love.
Report as
You still have the thought and affection after the hormone dissipates but any physical feel of love is caused by some metabolic reaction ether in the mind or in the body. The thought of affection releases those hormones, just like any other strong emotion.

Well, the heart works by itself. Not by the brain. So if the brain hromones can affect the heart automatic system, then the heart can adapt to that reaction in the case the brain interprets that the person you love is near. I would believe the heart is the one that feels love and feelings, the brain is the one that feels emotions. If the automatic system of the heart learns to act up specifically with someone, its a feeling. But if the heart does not learn, then its an emotion. Ik that when I feel love, I feel it on my chest, not my head. Would make an interesting investigation. Gby
