Feeling happy, then snappy toward your guy? There's a reason!
You know how sometimes you feel so in love with your guy and other times you want to strangle him?
Well, you're not nuts. Scientists at the University College London say not only is fluctuating between love and disdain totally normal, you also can't help but feel that way.
Turns out the same part of your brain that activates feelings of love, is also responsible for producing feelings of hate -- which explains why sometimes you two are snuggly one minute and screaming the next.
In their study, the researchers showed 17 men and women pictures of someone the volunteers said they hated (i.e.: former lovers or work rivals).
The brain scans identified areas of the brain researchers call a "hate circuit" that switched on when people saw faces they despised. Those same areas also light up when people look at photos of people they love.
But get this: Scientists also say feelings of judgment and reasoning de-activate when looking at photos of loved ones -- which may explain why you often let his bad habits slide in the name of love.
