Is There Really An Equation For Staying In Love?

Psychologists John and Julie Gottman spent years observing couples’ behaviour and developed a method that claims to predict a romantic relationship’s chances of long-term success. They have (of course) used what they learned to create a $US750-per-couple workshop that aims to help people become better partners.


Here's What Breaking Up Does To Your Brain

When the love of your life dumps you, you’re going to go a little nuts. But it’s a very specific form of crazy: There are actually conflicting neural systems active inside your brain. It’s like you’re falling in love all over again, only in reverse. Here’s how neuroscience explains it.


The Best Stories About Scientists Working Together And Falling In Love

Two weeks ago, Nobel-prize winning cell biologist Tim Hunt created a storm of controversy when he made a comment about how he can’t work with women because he always falls in love with them, or they with him. But why does he think love in the lab is such a problem? Here are four stories of couples who met through science, fell in love, and created a productive scientific collaboration — though not necessarily in that order.


Short Film: A Late Night Phone Call Can Bring Back So Many Memories

Dan Woodliff’s Still is a powerful short film that shows the emotional roller coaster ride that can happen when you look back at your memories with someone you love. It’s a mix of tense feelings, a whole lot of regret, a dash of hopefulness and a bit of happiness. Anyone who’s been on the phone with an ex after a relationship can relate.


Short Film: R2-D2 Adorably Falls In Love With A Blue Mailbox

Say it with me: Awwwww. In a story that’s a little like the first hour of Wall-E, this short film, Artoo In Love by Evan Atherton, tells a cute love story of R2-D2 and a blue mailbox. R2 starts holding picnics with it, zaps away people who want to mail things and holds an umbrella over its head when it rains.


This Oscar-Nominated Film About A Couple Growing Apart Melted My Heart

Video: Sometimes life — and love — seems to pass before your eyes at the speed of light. One day, you wake up and realise that the person you’ve been living with for years has changed so much that they have almost become a stranger. Head Over Heels is an Oscar nominated stop-motion film by Timothy Reckart that perfectly depicts that feeling.


A Love Story Filmed Exclusively Looking Down On A Bed

Jack Tew and Sorcha Anglim came up with such an awesomely creative way to tell a love story and one that makes so much sense: From the sole perspective of the bedroom. The short, Me & You, is filmed completely from the ceiling of the room, giving you a bird’s eye view of the entire relationship, from start to finish.


Great Animated Short Film Is As Sweet, Fun And Sad As Real Love Is

Video: I read somewhere that love was invented as a cure for loneliness. I don’t know if that’s completely true, but this brilliant short film — directed by Julio Pot — illustrates that thought perfectly.


25 Of The Most Desirable Objects Ever Made

First of all I have to make this clear: I am not an objectophile. Really, no. Not really. OK, maybe a bit. Bit who isn’t? We’re surrounded by scores of gadgets so well-designed it’s almost impossible not to fall in love with some of them. The following set of images serves as a confession for me. Call me a pervert, but I adore these objects so much, that simply to touch, to hold them causes a pleasant and tickling sensation in my nervous system.


These Are The Songs You Have Sex To, According To Spotify

Music for the bedroom is no longer a case of slipping Barry White onto your vinyl player and leaning in to your loved on. More likely, it means firing up a cloud-based playlist and routing it through your Bluetooth speaker. So, perhaps, unsurprisingly, Spotify knows exactly what you’re listening to when you do the deed.
