Is it just a deep intense feeling or some chemical equation happening in our mind? Love is funny that way and the exact science of falling and staying in love aren't very well understood. Scientists have always said it's a mix of both. It's the interaction we have with a special someone that triggers the chemical reaction in our brains which leads to the overflow of emotions. But all that is science.

No, it's not. It's as natural as breathing.
When you see somebody you like, your brain immediately secretes certain hormones that make you want to spend more time with that person. There are different stages of love and here is a list.
Being attracted to somebody is literally feeling butterflies in your stomach when you see them. It's the secretion of dopamine in your mind and your serotonin levels drop. This leveling of your hormones makes you fascinated with this person and you can't stop thinking about them.
Since puberty, our hormone levels rise and we feel the need to experience love. Again, a series of chemicals released into our brain which is facilitated by our partner's body language and behavior towards us. It is affected by the feeling we receive when we're with our partners.
A strong bond between two partners is experienced during the release of oxytocin and endorphins. Oxytocin is released when we hug, kiss and have $ex. It indicates a supreme level of intimacy between two partners. Endorphins are the happy hormones which have a pain suppressing action and create the feeling of security between two lovers.
Love isn't complicated. It is a mixture of your hormones and the feelings you get out of it.
Feeling love isn't a difficult thing but it's probably the best ever when two people feel the same way about each other.
