A Study done by the researchers of Hamilton College in the United States states that a couple need to meet at least four times before falling in love and hence the love at first sight may be a myth.
To find out the conclusions, researchers showed the pictures of people’s face to a group of young men an women, whose brains were wired to the computers. The participants ranked the people on attractiveness of people in the photos. For the second time, the photos were shown to the people and they rated faces which they found highly attractive.
According to the study, the researchers found out that the attractions was much higher during the third time and and strongest of all during the fourth time. Researchers also said that the monitors showed extra activity around the excitement and pleasure centers of the brain.
Ravi Thiruchselvam, psychologist at Hamilton College, said, “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 further added.
