London, Jan 10: As per a recent study at the Purdue University in Indiana, USA, sweets can help you win your date. The research revealed that tempting sweets could have you more interested and make your potential date or lover appear more attractive, the Daily Express reported.
The researchers said that the brain scans have previously shown that similar nervous systems link sweet taste and feelings of love and the recent study reveals that sweet taste and feelings of love share a similar part of the brain.
Lead researcher Dongning Ren added that the research shows sweet food taste increases dopamine levels, a key biological substrate of passionate love, and although dopamine is involved in many experiences, it may be part of the link between taste and romantic interest. Research has also shown that just thinking about romantic love makes people think food is sweeter.
The study is published in the Journal of Social and Personal Relationships.
Here are some grooming tips to ensure you've swept your date off their feet:
