Sustained eye contact even among strangers stimulates feelings of liking and loving. Gazing into your partner’s eyes rather than at your electronic device can help to remind you of your tender feelings for one another.
Also, eye contact with an attractive companion and observing a smile enhances activation in the area of the brain associated with reward. The reward center of the brain is also involved in feelings of sexual desire and love. Studies have shown that our pupils dilate wider than normal when we are excited about something and even someone.
Try gazing into your partner’s eyes without smiling, and I’m certain you will soon be both gazing and smiling!
