The Surprising Link Between What You Eat and Who You Fall in Love With

Recently, scientists started making discoveries about how everything is connected, such as how what time you go to sleep can affect your productivity, and how the way you smile can improve your mood. Even on earth, we learned that simple actions like carbon emissions from cars could have an overall effect on the environment.

But then, it seems that there’s another connection that most people don’t know about. It’s the link between the kinds of foods you like to eat and your love life. Sounds surprising? Read on.

Spicy foods indicate a high tolerance level.

When it comes to spicy foods, most people love a bit of fire in their meals every once in a while. Sometimes, all you need is a little taste of hot sauce to “reboot” your taste buds. However, you’ll agree that spicy food isn’t something most people eat daily.

However, some people enjoy spicy food just for the heck of it! In a recent study, it was found that at least 3 out of 10 Americans purchase spicy foods at least once a month. These people are said to enjoy the experience of tasting something hot. Psychologists say that our preferences in one area of our lives often extend to another.

If you’re one of these 3 in 10 people who enjoy a regular helping of spicy delicacies, you might love hot and steamy adventures in more ways than one. You may also prefer to be with someone exciting and always full of surprises.

Trying new foods indicates a sense of adventure.

Most people grow up with certain food recipes. We’re often introduced to the family recipe at a young age, and we go through our lives preparing and eating these foods. They are essentially a part of who we are. That’s why many families often prepare the same recipes every year. This consistency with food and tastes indicates a sense of tradition.

Translating into relationships, this often means that people may prefer more traditional approaches to out-of-the-box ideas. However, people who don’t particularly have favorite foods, but prefer to try foods as they come, are probably more open to other kinds of adventures – like relationships, for example. These people are more likely to embrace slightly unconventional ideas like black and white dating.

If you love chocolate, then you’re a passionate lover.

Most people know that there’s a link between chocolate, love, and sex. Chocolate contains caffeine, and taking caffeine is a little addictive. The more you take, the more you’ll want. When you take a bar of chocolate, you want to take another because your brain loves it.

How does it apply to love? Well, being in a relationship is a little like being on drugs. Your brain releases hormones like serotonin that make you feel good. The more love you give and receive, the better you feel. People who love chocolate are more familiar with this mechanism of giving and receiving and are better at responding to it.

That’s what makes them better lovers. They know that loving makes you both feel good, and they give all the love they have to give.
