                                      Mutual gaze increases the feeling of love

  Are you looking for love? Throw away your books about love. A long mutual gaze is the best way to let Cupid's arrows hit their marks. This is said by an American psychologist.

  One day, the psychologist saw a young couple in a small coffeehouse. The man and the woman looked into each other's eyes for a long time without saying a word. The two were clearly in love with each other. Later, the psychologist wanted to see whether he could make people fall in love. He instructed volunteers--men and women who were complete strangers--to gaze into their partners' eyes for two minutes. It worked like magic. "mutual eye-to-eye contact really increased feelings of attraction, interest, warmth, and excitement for each other," says the psychologist.

  Was mutual gazing in fact the key? The psychologist told some of the couples to look at each other's hands. He also made some of them look into the eyes of their partners while their partners looked at their hands. He found these couples were not as interested in each other as the couples that gazed into each other's eyes.

  Why does mutual gazing increase attraction? The psychologist believes that when we imitate acts of love, our feelings begin to follow the example. "Generally, the more you act as you are in love, the more you will be in love. But the gaze must be real. Both people must take part in it."
