I want someone who will love me more than himself

On a primal level, it benefits women to pick a man who is far more in love with her than she is with him, because that FEELS like he will stick around, and so we and our babies can have all his resources. However, this is the exact thing many men hate about a relationship, and commitment to a woman. Research shows that men fall in love faster, and way harder than women do. And, research done by the well respected Anthropologist Helen Fisher, also shows that MEN are far more idealistic about love and relationships than women are. The problem is, this makes men feel like crap.

Should You Be With Someone Who Loves You More Than You Love Them?

T here are male dating gurus who train men in the dark art of the female putdown. They tell guys that playing hard to get is the way to make a woman fall head over heels; that women prefer men who behave like jerks, with a touch of humor thrown into the mix.

There is some truth to their claims: when we obtain what is hard to get, we appreciate it more. Sensing signs of love from a jerk may feel like more of an achievement than from a guy who constantly dotes on us or on any woman he lays his eyes on. But these male dating gurus are not entirely right, either. Behaving like a jerk for too long builds resentment. Sometimes those negative feelings surface with a vengeance and we simply fall out of love, almost overnight.

Love advice spreads across the internet Gangnam-style, especially this time of year. But much of the advice on love — and breakups, for that matter — is little more than urban legend. Here are 7 surprising facts about the actual science of love and heartbreak. Why it works? The test creates intimacy, which can increase dopamine, one of the chemicals that floods the brain when you are in love. You may be able to fool the brain with adrenaline, too.

Adrenaline comes along with low levels of the feel-secure-and-safe chemical serotonin — just the right cocktail to fool the brain into producing feelings of love. In one famous study, a woman asked eligible strangers survey questions on a dangerous bridge and also safely on solid ground.

Afterwards, she gave each of them her number. Who were more likely to call her later? The men on the bridge. Perhaps they had confused the adrenaline caused by the danger with the adrenaline caused by new love. Newlyweds vow that they will love each other forever; that their love will never change. But they are deluded. Sexual desire and romantic love always fade. Scientists used to believe it would fade around the seven year mark.

But newer research shows that romantic love may fade even faster, even at just three years, according to recent research by the Pew Research Center and the National Survey of Families and Households.

Just different. What keeps people together? And altruism: a desire to keep our partner happy. A marriage may indeed signal happiness— a study in the Journal of Socio-Economics , which followed married couples over 17 years, found that happy people are more likely to get married than unhappy folks. But the marriage was not the cause of that happiness, these were naturally happy people. In reality, marriages do not make people happy. You want to fall in love, you say?

Be careful what you wish for. Emotional pain can feel just like physical pain by firing the very same neurons in the brain. Your heart can actually hurt. Think again there, too. Heartbroken lovers with stress cardiomyopathy have two to three times as much adrenaline in their blood as people who suffer from a classic heart attack, and they have seven to thirty-four times more adrenaline than normal individuals.

What that means? Taking a Tylenol actually might ease your emotional pain. Expose yourself to just about every reminder of your ex you can think of. Did he ride an Audi S5 Coupe? Go to an Audi store and test drive one. Keep going until the store manager asks you to get lost.

The reason? Our brains get bored when we feed them the same information over and over. They adapt to the stimulants and eventually cease to take note — which enables to forget, and move on with our lives.

This is true even if the information overload may be torturous at first. What explains the need for drastic changes is chemical conditioning. If a heroin addict always takes a dose at a specific time, in a specific hangout, the brain will learn that these stimuli room, time, people mean the dose is coming, and it will prepare itself for the fix. But suppose the heroin addict and his pals agree to quit. The withdrawal symptoms would be worse in the old environment because there the brain knows to prepare the body for a dose.

When you are in emotional pain and crave your ex, you are in the same situation as the heroin addict who suddenly quits his addiction.

So get the ball rolling: move the love seat to the other side of the living room. It takes time for the brain to store events to long-term memory.

But there is an exception to this. When you experience something terrifyingly traumatic — which a breakup can be — the trauma leads to immediate memory storage. But there is a way to bypass this. Excessive alcohol consumption naturally protects against this. So, go get drunk as a skunk.

7 signs your partner is more in love with you than you think

So you love a guy with low self-esteem. Sucks to be you. Who still kind of does. I know the crap you deal with. He must drive you nuts.

I can't remember where I had heard this old adage before or just how far back the saying goes, but it always seems to resonate no matter your view on it, even going so far as to say it might be an interesting thought to contemplate as we trudge through our romantic lives: You should be with someone who loves you more than you love them. It seems simple enough — sure we've all had that one person in our lives that's always been there and who definitely loves us more than we love them and would quite literally do anything to be with us.

Though you might think you have your relationship all figured out, it's definitely possible that your partner might love you more than you think they do. If you think that there's something off in your relationship or you think that they don't love you as much as you love them, for instance, it might be because of misinterpretations and miscommunication. If you feel like the two of you aren't connecting in the same way or you can't put your finger on what's going on, here's what you might need to know. Gary Chapman, PhD , developed the idea that there are five love languages. Essentially, each person "speaks" one of these love languages and one of the keys to a good and successful relationship is deciphering your partner's love language.
