This is more of the physical symptoms of falling in love such as sweaty palms, your heart pounding or the butterflies in your stomach.
  4. Serotonin is present in many other aspects of your life other than falling in love and it is the chemical of mood balance. In the aspect of follow your love, serotonin is the reason you might have an obsession, or you might lose sleep over someone.
