You know that feeling of being into someone, when they start DOMINATING your thoughts all day long? Turns out your brain really can't deal with it.
According to a new study, when people fall in love, they immediately get DUMBER.
The researchers analyzed 43 people who'd been in relationships for less than six months . . . and found the ones who said they were falling in PASSIONATE LOVE did WORSE on tests than people who were just kinda dating casually.
The blame really DOES go to love dominating your every thought . . . your brain has a limited amount of resources, and when most of them are devoted to falling in love, you can't use as much brainpower on everything else.
Fortunately, once you settle into being in love, your brain goes back to working normally. (Huffington Post)
