While movies have had us believing a LOT of things about love, it is true that being in love changes the way your brain functions (at least alter it in a lot of ways) and helps you be a well-rounded human being!

A study done by Southwest university in China has corroborated the fact that being in love actually makes you a better person!

The results showed that the participants of the 'in love' category had increased activity in 12 different areas of the brain, all co related with the duration of time they've been in love for.

This increased activity was recorded in the areas responsible for regulating motivation, reward, social cognition and emotions, proving that the longer you're in love, the more your brain evolves to become well rounded and in turn make you a better person!
