Time for love!

If you’re sick and tired of being single, it’s worth knowing that you could already be falling for someone right in front of you… In fact, if you’re currently talking to somebody, you could end up falling in love with them in the near future. According to a study masterly led by French dating site AdopteUnMec, it could only take about a year to seriously fall in love.

To explain further, the experts behind this study claim that it takes 254 days and 268 messages to fall in love. And what’s more, ladies, you should know that you fall in love quicker than men! For you, it only takes 232 days to fall in love in comparison to 276 days for men! And to add to this, the study has claimed that men need to send more messages to make their minds up: 312 in comparison to the 224 for women.

How do you know if you're falling in love? This can vary from person to person, but there are telltale signs. These can include being distracted and preoccupied because you are always thinking about the person, and always talking about them. If you are together a lot, such as at work, it's hard not to be constantly looking at them. Sometimes falling in love can be hard to spot yourself, but those around you can usually tell. The question now remains if love is merely chemical, or something a bit more complex.
