Lovers no good in spotting others in love
The next time you’re at a party with the love of your life, don’t spend a lot of time trying to identify other couples in love – chances are, you aren’t very good at it.
Golfers may be able to identify a sweet swing, and runners admire a lengthy stride in others, but a new study has found that when it comes to identifying couples in love, no one is worse than – well, couples in love. “Love is truly blind,” said Frank J. Bernieri, professor and chair of the Department of Psychology at Oregon State University and one of the authors of the study.
