The journey to finding true love leads us to our twin flame. When it comes down to it, though, how long does it take to fall in love with someone?

The Average Time

According to the Journal of Personality and Social Psychology, men take an average of 97 days to declare their love, while women take an average of 149 days.

Time to say I Love You

The average time for a person to say these three words is 144 days, according to research conducted by Match in 2016.

It is not surprising that a person is more likely to fall in love with someone to whom they are attached.

Why we fall in love?

Love at first sight

According to Match Singles in America, 34% of people claim to have experienced love at first sight. Getting to know someone can take longer if you are not mentally prepared.

Despite the common belief that women fall in love more quickly than men, men tend to express their romantic feelings more quickly than women.

Men express faster

This is likely rooted in evolutionary biology, where a woman's reproductive role made her more picky about a potential mate.

Biology behind love

The ventral tegmental area in the brain is responsible for the release of the naturally occurring stimulant dopamine, which is then distributed to many other brain areas.

When our brain produces dopamine, we feel pleasure, the emotion associated with love.
