Where does love come from? God’s gift?
Does it arise as an instinct for procreation? And maybe, love decorates our lives thanks to our own fantasies, but in fact it does not exist?
Interesting facts about love will help you to consider this great feeling from different angles.
A lot of words are said about love. This song is dedicated to songs, composes poems and odes.

However, to this day no one can confidently answer the question – what is love?
Romantics endow this feeling with tenderness and loftiness, pragmatists believe that love is just a passion and affection, and scientists come to the conclusion that falling in love is a chemical reaction of the body.
Probably, the versatility of the views and opinions that are hovering around this feeling, is due to the fact that to everyone, love is represented in different guises.
20 interesting facts about love are written below:
1. Monogamous love exists
Some psychologists tend to believe that a person at an instinctive, natural level is polygamous.

8. “Broken Heart” exists
Experiencing a love tragedy, we often resort to a beautiful metaphor: “a broken heart.”
