‘The fastest way to a man’s heart is through his stomach’ is an adage that doesn’t tell the whole story. Back in 2015, Dr. Alice Ely and her team of Drexel scientists concluded a study on women that found greater neural stimulation from romantic imagery.
In layman’s terms, this means that the way to anyone’s heart is through their stomach. There’s good news for couples who love to eat, too: couples that cook and dine together are more likely to stay together, according to statistics.
While love and relationships shouldn’t be based on material goods, there are a few small trinkets out there that can help spice up a relationship. After all, you can never go wrong when your gift is something food related; everybody loves a good meal, and a good meal tastes even better when love is cooked in.
