It turns out that the devastating pain we feel when we break up is not just emotional in nature. In fact, it closely mirrors the feeling one has when in withdrawal from several drugs. Imaging studies have found that the pain involved in a breakup is registered by the brain as real pain—similar areas of the brain light up after the collapse of a relationship as when we break a leg..
So, indeed, love hurts.
