Where You Look Shows Whether You're In Love—Or Just Lusting

There may be something to the cliché of lovebirds gazing into each other's eyes, new research suggests. A glance at a person's face tends to indicate romantic love, whereas looking at a person's body is associated with feelings of sexual desire, according to a new study.

Love Or Lust? N-EYES-REVEAL-LOVE-large570

These telling glances can last less than half a second, lead study author Stephanie Cacioppo, director of the University of Chicago High-Performance Electrical NeuroImaging Laboratory, said in a statement.

"Although little is currently known about the science of love at first sight or how people fall in love, these patterns of response provide the first clues regarding how automatic attentional processes, such as eye gaze, may differentiate feelings of love from feelings of desire toward strangers," Cacioppo said. [5 Ways Love Affects the Brain]

Feelings of romantic love and sexual desire activate different areas of the human brain, according to a 2012 review Cacioppo and her colleagues published in the Journal of Sexual Medicine. The new study examined whether researchers could identify the difference between feelings of love and lust, based on eye-tracking data.

In the first of two tests, the researchers showed 16 heterosexual students at the University of Geneva, in Switzerland, 120 black-and-white photographs. Each photograph pictured a young heterosexual couple interacting with one another. In the second test, the students looked at 40 photographs of attractive people of the opposite gender. The researchers did not use any nude or erotic pictures in the experiments.

In both tests, the participants had to quickly and precisely report whether they felt lust or love after looking at the pictures. Glances associated with both love and lust took about the same amount of time, which highlights the brain's ability to rapidly process the two emotions, the researchers said.

However, an analysis of the eye-tracking data showed that those who looked at people's faces tended to report feelings of romantic love. In contrast, those whose gazes lingered on a person's body tended to report sexual desire. The results were the same for both men and women.

"An eye-tracking paradigm may eventually offer a new avenue of diagnosis in clinicians' daily practice or for routine clinical exams in psychiatry and/or couple therapy," said co-author John Cacioppo, professor and director of the Center for Cognitive and Social Neuroscience at the University of Chicago.

The researchers published their findings July 16 in the journal Psychological Science.

I found an island in your arms,
A country in your eyes,
Arms that chain, eyes that lie
Break on thru ...

I've always said...know me by my thoughts and words...the face then you will come to know.

physical is lust...the mind is love

keep all physical images away and you can fall for someone...no matter what they look like

What's that phrase that us women have to repeat all the time (mostly in our heads):

"......my eyes are up here......."

I don't know....... I think that when you fall for somebody it doesn't matter what they look like...

BUT, you don't know how it will feel face to face........smells/scents are crucial.

In evolutionary terms, men seek out sexually desirable females whose youthful features indicate good health and the ability to bear children, while women look for mates with abundant enough resources to provide for their children.

So does this mean that women are genetically programmed to seek out only high-status men with lots of money and resources, and to disdain more average guys with lesser earning power — that what women really go for is that big bulge in a man's pants (his wallet)?

Most women are married to men who don't earn enough to feed the family, hence they have to go to work......SOME women and SOME men want money.

I don't.........I want a toyboy.......
hahaha

just kidding!
