When I'm with my girlfriend my mind just seems to focus on her, my eyes get drawn to hers, my heart starts racing I feel like I have the energy to do anything its just an awesome experience that's hard to describe words do it no justice
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.
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
