I Love to Gaze into Your Eyes…
The reason you like gazing into your lover’s eyes may be because you used to gaze into your mother’s eyes when you were an infant, since this released a comforting brain hormone, which is also stimulated by touches and hugs. And what if those eyes you’re gazing into are blue?
Researchers have learned that the brain chemical oxytocin is released through touch between mother-infant and male-female pair bonds. It is released during hugging and pleasant physical touch, and may actually change the brain in a way that helps human social behavior.
