Love at First Sight Quantified

Because I love you...........(EXPLORE)

Although I am not a believer in love at first sight, scientists have finally released a study stating that all it takes is 8.2 seconds! Now that is pretty quick to fall in love! Do you realize how how long 8.2 seconds even is? More or the less the time it took you to read those few sentences! Okay, so the study isn’t entirety based on love at first sight and all that. Basically, the researchers concluded that men who find their dates attractive will initially gaze into their date's eyes for about 8.2 seconds on average, while those who only find their date to be, umm… “less attractive” tend to gaze at them for a total of 4.5 seconds on average. Not surprisingly, this phenomenon doesn’t work the other way around… although I do wonder why…? :-/ Regardless, I would assume that publishing this research will only contribute to bolstering society’s fear of first impressions! Don't worry though, for better or worse that moment will be over in a blink of an eye... or at least a few....
