Pyaar ke side effects

Summi once told me that Love effects you like drug. I interrupted in between even before she could complete her sentence and told her – “Yeah, Yeah I know. Love gets you high. But do you know – It’s because of the increased blood levels of adrenalin and cortisol which has the charming effect of getting your heart race and mouth dry when you unexpectedly bump into your new love. And also because of serotonin which explain why when you’re falling in love, your new lover keeps popping into your thoughts.” I finished my sentence and thought of the brilliant Sheldon Cooper. I also nearly said Buzzinga in my head but then she cut me off.

She told me that what she meant by getting high is that love make you hallucinate. It makes you read between the lines looking for the meanings which are not there, chasing for the signs which do not point anywhere, searching for the love which does not exist.

I wasn’t really sure about her statement but then she asked me – “Or how else you would explain so many one sided love stories?”

I couldn’t answer her.
