Naveen Kumar answers on Quora: Romantic love is the result of chemical processes in the brain. Modern science has proven that it is the result of chemicals in the brain. In particular, the experience of love is caused by three key neurotransmitters: dopamine, norepinephrine, and serotonin.
a. Dopamine is one of the key neurotransmitters researchers have found to coincide with feelings of romantic love.
b. The feelings of exhilaration and stimulation that accompany love – like butterflies in the stomach or a rapid heartbeat – are caused by the release of norepinephrine.
c. Serotonin is responsible for the increased restlessness and the constant thinking about your beloved.
