Apparently it can last a lifetime, according to CNN and the researchers at Stony Brook University in New York. *phew* What a relief.
And I’m totally not being sarcastic.
Previous research has suggested that the first stages of romantic love fade within 15 months and after 10 years it has gone completely, the newspaper said.
“The findings go against the traditional view of romance — that it drops off sharply in the first decade — but we are sure it’s real,” said Arthur Aron, a psychologist at Stony Brook, told the Sunday Times.
Lately, love has felt so unattainable. You see lovers move on. Or lovers who can’t move on and seem destined to be alone forever. I’m glad there is research to confirm my idealized vision of love.
That is all, night folks.
