Everyone is looking for love.  Most of us in all the wrong places.  Well, luckily for us, science is here to try to prove everything we thought we knew is wrong.

Here are four weird theories about how you fall for someone that are actually backed by science -

1.  It only takes four minutes to fall in love.  Sort of.  According to a study in the "New York Times", four minutes of staring at someone might be enough to fall in love.  I'm sorry, what?!  Four minutes?  That can't be right.

2.  We look for someone who's like our family.  This is based on the idea that we like familiarity.  So, subconsciously we search for that in a partner.

3.  It's like cocaine.  According to a study from the Albert Einstein College of Medicine in New York, the way our brains light up when we're in love is the same way they would if we were high on cocaine.  I get that.  You must remember the feeling of fresh, young love and the high it gave you... oh... those were the days...

4.  Diet plays a role.  According to a study from the dating app Are You Interested, men were more likely to contact vegetarian women, while women were more likely to hit up meat-eaters.  This is crazy to me!  And, during #GuyDayFriday we asked our panel if they were into chicks who ate meat, and all of them said "Yes!"  Soooo.... if you can figure this one out, let me know please!

Not sure if those theories will help you on your quest to find to love, but they are enough to make you go, "hmmmmmm".
