Miss You till it hurts

Why do we miss someone? And why does it hurt when you do?
At first you meet someone, you go out a couple of times, gradually you start spending more and more time with him, specially if this person makes you happy, and then you start experiencing symptoms of addiction, Am I right? My not so scientific explanation is probably the brain makes a sort of a link between happiness and that person.. And suddenly, everything that you do without him is not satisfying anymore!
In the end, you wake up one day and you feel that the absence of that person creates a gap that the presence of other people can’t fill 🙂

The cure: Always go out with the person you miss… Even if you have to be with him 24/7 it’s better than missing him till it hurts

    I couldn’t agree more on your blog post, and I have been experiencing these missing feelings a lot lately.. And you just made me curious to know the biological side to your question!

    My findings:
    The part of your brain that regulates emotional reactions, the anterior cingulate cortex, may respond to stressful experiences (including missing someone) by increasing the activity of the vagus nerve. The vagus nerve connects to the neck, chest, and abdomen. It’s overstimulation can cause pain and nausea.

    Cheers and keep on posting interesting blogs 🙂

    I absolutely agree with your cure, under one condition : the other wants also to stay with you 24/7!!!! If not : miss him till you die
