In our search for love, we meet, date, and eventually meet our twin flame. But how long does it truly take to fall in love with another person?
The Journal of Personality and Social Psychology found that men typically take 97 days to declare their love, while women take 149 days on average.
In 2016, Match found that it takes the average person 144 days to utter these three phrases.
A person is more likely to fall in love with someone they are attached, which is hardly a surprise.
34% of people "claim" to have fallen in love at first sight, according to Match Singles in America. If you're not mentally ready, it can take longer so you can get to know the person.
Despite the belief that women fall in love more rapidly, males tend to communicate their feelings of love more swiftly than women.
It is thought to be due to evolutionary biology, as women were more selective in choosing a partner because she would be bearing the child.
