Why Is Unrequited Love So Damn Hard To Overcome?

Anyone who claims not to have suffered the pains of unrequited love is either closer to 14 than to 40 or lying. Most of us have been through this upsetting situation where the person we are after is simply unavailable. What makes this kind of love so difficult to get over, though?

This Is Why Unrequited Love Is So Addictive

If you rationalize it, why would anyone want someone they can’t have? In an ideal world, it would not even cross our minds to pursue people who are emotionally or otherwise unavailable. Why, then, do we cling on to them like a moth to a flame?

The truth of the matter is that we don’t consciously choose who we fall in love with. Unreciprocated love may be a situation where we love someone who is already in a relationship, so can’t return the feeling even if she wanted to or just someone who doesn’t feel the same way about us. Either way, it hurts.

Despite the fact we have little say over who we develop feelings for; most of us tend to idealize that person. As we fall more and more deeply in love with her, we only tend to notice her good features and traits. And while in romantic relationships partners will slowly appear more flawed than we originally thought they were, in a situation where you aren’t involved with your crush, she will continue to appear close to perfection because there is no friction between you or any real-life situation tests to her character.

Another reason why unrequited love is hard to let go of may be that some of us actually get a thrill out of them. If you keep finding yourself in the same pattern of one-sided love, perhaps there are psychological reasons for it. They could range from low self-esteem to a taste for drama, or even deeper reasons. In any case, an honest look into the causes you keep fall for those you can’t have will probably shed some light on the situation and help you move on.

Strange as it may sound, have you thought of the possibility that you are sabotaging yourself without even realizing it? Setting goals that are too high or unrealistic, like falling in love with a Hollywood actress or a woman who’s happily married, also sets you up for failure. Could it be that you are making this choice out of fear of rejection or commitment? If this is the case, unrequited love may be your refuge, your safe place – despite it sounding like some kind of an oxymoron.

For whatever reason you are experiencing this hurtful situation of not being loved back the way you’d like to, there are always ways to move on and find happiness. You just need to be determined and focused on your goal to find the love that you deserve.

A Love Drug That Will Solve Our Romantic Problems Is Becoming A Reality

From the magical potions witches made in fairytales to an era where we are coming to understand our brains so well that there are now ways to experience emotions through drugs, one thing has always been the goal: love. It seems that a love drug is about to change the way we perceive the strongest emotion of all.

Why Would You Take A Love Drug?

After many years of constant and systematic research and experimentation, scientists seem to have come to understand how our brain experiences love through activation of its complex subsystems. By experimenting on two different kinds of prairie voles – one that’s monogamous and one that isn’t – scientists have come to identify the brain system behind romantic feelings in long-term relationships. Apparently, the difference in the oxytocin systems of the two species is what causes their different approaches to love.

Because there is not one kind of love though, as there are different chemicals released when we first fall in love and different ones when we are in a long-term, stable relationship, neuroscientists are more likely to focus the love drug on bringing the rush of the first stage of a romance back to long-term relationships.

The Various Uses Of A Love Drug

There may also be other uses, though, or even other types of emotion-controlling drugs, like the one that may act as an antidote for love. This could potentially be useful in abusive relationships when the abused partner would rather fall out of love and leave their abusive partner for good.

It is hard to tell, but some may say that there are already emotion-inducing drugs out there, some legally and others not. For instance, MDMA or the Amazonian hallucinogenic ayahuasca both bring about the release of oxytocin in the body. However, the effects they have are too short-term to have any true and lasting effect on a couple’s relationship.

A Question Of Ethics

As concerns the ethical aspect of love drugs, and whether it is morally right to interfere with love in a relationship, Anders Sandberg, a neuroethicist at Oxford University’s Future of Humanity Institute, has his own opinion. He says, “Should people having trouble in a relationship go to a marriage counselor? Shouldn’t a marriage just fall apart naturally? If someone goes away on a romantic holiday that costs a lot of money and comes back with a better marriage, we’d probably say, ‘Yeah, that’s great.’”

Despite the fact there is still a lot of research to be done, what’s probably more difficult to do than produce the love drug (or drugs if different kinds of them are produced), the big question is how and when it will be alright to take them. True life is a little more complicated than fairytales.

Things You Didn’t Know About This Polish Beauty, Hottest Model Today

Emily Ratajkowski, who’s of Polish descendant, is one of those women who turn heads when they walk down the street and just can’t go unnoticed when they enter the room, that’s why she’s been called the hottest model around.

She made a bang in 2013, with her saucy appearance in Robert Thicke’s “Blurred Lines” video and became a household name after her equally sexy role in the “Gone Girl” thriller one year later, alongside Ben Affleck. From then on, it’s onwards and upwards for the 25-year-old model and actress, but we bet there are things you still don’t know about her.

The hottest model right now almost didn't accept the job in Robert Thicke's music video
She almost turned down the “Blurred Lines” job.

Surprising Facts About The Hottest Model Right Now

You can’t judge a book by its cover and you shouldn’t judge a lady just by her looks. Emily may be smoking hot, but there’s more about her that makes her irresistible. Here’s a taste.

She was signed by Ford Models at just 14. While for most of us early adolescence is an awkward mess, Emily Ratajkowski was so pretty she was scouted as young as 14 years old. The modeling agency Ford Models signed her and she started out as a catalog model at once. Since then, she’s modeled for the biggest fashion houses, like Marc Jacobs and Miu Miu, and featured in the biggest fashion magazines in the world, like Marie Claire and Vogue.

She doesn’t like playing the pretty girl roles. Emily hates being typecasted, so she aims to play more diverse roles that are not based on her looks, but her acting talents. This has led to her being rejected for specific roles, one of which being the lead in Ewan McGregor’s 2016 film “American Pastoral”.

She originally rejected the offer to play in the “Blurred Lines” video. Despite the fact it is what catapulted her to fame, Emily was at first skeptical about taking part in Robert Thicke’s daring music video. Apparently, it was a meeting with the director himself that convinced her to finally say that significant “yes”.

Her parents wanted her to become a neurosurgeon. With both of her parents being in academia, the entertainment industry would have lost Emily to science had her parents’ wish for her to become a brain surgeon come true. The beautiful girl attended the University of California, Los Angeles for one year in 2009, but found that the way art was taught there was not in agreement with her views and decided to pursue her modeling career instead.
