“Turning on the reward neurons releases repeated floods of the neurotransmitter dopamine. And the dopamine activates circuits inside the brain that create a craving…In the case of romance, the thing you need more of is your beloved.” – Diane Kelly

We’re going to assume, at least for the sake of this article, that someone you once loved someone did not end up becoming “the one.”https://www.powerofpositivity.com/happens-brain-breakup/

"Studies demonstrate that individuals in the midst of a breakup show disproportionate activity in the brain regions that determine the body’s response to physical pain and distress. This is potentially dangerous; and again, the more intimate the relationship, the likelier that adverse and extreme harmful physical side effects arise." What can be more painful than being cheated on and rejected by the person we love and lose someone dear to us. It can truly break your heart and can really have a bad effect on your mental and physical health.

This is such an interesting article. I have been in love with my husband for 34 1/2 years. He is an extraordinary man. When he gives me a hug it feels as if things are right even when they're not. He still makes my heart flutter when he looks at me.

I can’t even imagine what the brain of a new widow or widower looks like.

Rejections and break-ups are truly deadly to someone who has very low self-esteem or poor/lack of wide understanding of human nature.

"Interesting, although, each human being is unique, with peculiar ways of feeling, thinking and act.
There are more then 9 billions women and men in our home planet earth, all different. First we should start to know and love ourselves, then, proceed to love others. Be happy.

Enjoy life, nature and this beautiful and magical journey: L I F E."

Before my husband and I got married we broke up. I suffered with the worse pain in my heart. I had a broken heart and the pain was so intense I thought I would die.

Well, of course your brain changes after a rejection. You fire a bullet into it, it's going to change, significantly.

I think about all the bad things, moments and money I spent. To reverse how I feel about missing that person.

Another way to quit smoking is to fall in love, and when dumped, start smoking again. There is no way one could just stop being happy.
