    What helps us Fall in love...our brain or our heart?

    We fall in love, with our hearts. because it was orchestrated by us, before we ever came into this world..We contracted with the person or persons, we were destined to meet to work out our Karmic lessons. We recognize each other as soon as we meet

    Good question! I think that first of all to make us fall in love is our heart, therefore our instinct. But then to turn this emotion in a mature and healthy feeling of love we must use the brain . I have already made a big mistake in the past to have followed only the heart!

    You have asked a good question, Ruchira.  Your brian controls all of your thoughts.  It is only imagination that we feel and think that it is our heart. Your heart can't think, only your brain.  I would have to write a long hub on how your brain functions.  Your involuntary movement of arms, eyes, legs, neck etc, are control by involuntary muscles, and nerves. We have taught our brain what we like and do not like. The heart only beats and circulates your blood!

    Aside from meeting a like minded individual that shares your sense of humor, wants the same things out of life as you, and you find them to be physically attractive  as well as sexually compatible....etc
    Generally speaking we must (like what we see, hear, and understand) before we open up our hearts.

    Timing is also a major determining factor.
    If one has just gotten out of bad relationship/marriage they may not be open to receiving or giving love.

    I think our brain and our heart help us equally to fall in love. The heart gets fond of someone and our brain helps us to evaluate the person in terms of looks, appeals, personality etc.

    A little of both they need to work together in order for body to function. Mostly I would say hormones,thats why there's so many divorces

    The heart help us to fall in love, the brain will tell us how we feel.

    Brain. It produces b-Phenylethylamine, the key neurotransmitter involved in creating sensations of love.

    This is the good question.Heart and brain both help us in falling in love.because brain thinks and heart follow the instructions of the brain...

    I think both play apart...the brain picks out the person you desire then creates the chemical signals required to turn your emotions on...he heart then takes that forward and creates the 'Love-Bond' that propels you into unity.  Must admit it is a very good feeling being in love...if only the feeling will last forever.

    As a hopeless romantic I believe that our hearts make us fall in love.

    If the answer is to be an organ of the body then one must say the brain.However;if heart is taken as a social construct within a person it to will have to play a part.As others have said we are drawn to similarities though we dont always see them straight away.

    well, I think we think with our brain and it is the brain that decides what we do. The heart is just mention because of what it shows ( love) the function of the heart is for blood circulation among others but never for reasoning. love is said to be a thing of the heart but the does not think, it is just that the heart has a sign used to show love and poeple are now use to it. Like "  I love you from the bottom of my heart"

    This is a good question. Unfortunately, the masses are being trained to think with other parts of the body. This is creating problems at an unimaginable magnitude.

    Just your brain, to be frank sad. All your heart does is circulate blood round your body and keep you alive. It actually has no effect in falling in love, believe it or not. I know, sad, isn't it. sad

    Easy one it is all in the mind. Love stems from lust, we as a species were either put or evolved on earth to procreate that is our main purpose. Our heart does one function and that is to pump blood through out the body so that we may live. Only reason you feel it in our heart is because our mind disrupts the whole body process when in stress. Love is a form of stress. The mind is in control of all the body functions with that said, I believe a mind alone can love but since we can't live without our other body parts I can't prove it.

    The heart wins everytime.  Not literally, of course!  I try and listen to my heart as much as possible when it comes to love.  If I listen to my head I always head off down the wrong direction.

    I think both. Brain in beginning, wile butterflys flying around. But when heart takes over, mind, or brain have no effect. You can't think right, all you do is thinking on her/him. Love is dangerous addiction of adrenaline, who we all enjoy.

    love has an attachment with heart. Mind thinks while planning for love but heart never thinks, it just fall in love just like that.

    Uh this is a simlple one. Your brain, it controls all of your bodies functions. Involuntary and voluntary.

    Love, being an emotion, dictates that the 'heat' is in control, which means that including the head in the station creates a conflict.

    A good lover is in love using her/his heart. Using brain to fell in love is a not which is not true love..
