A new study by leading psychologist Richard Wiseman says that behaving as if you find someone attractive increases your susceptibility to their charms, and increases the likelihood of you falling in love with them. His study suggests that behaviour can lead to emotions just as much as emotions can lead to behaviour, and may suggest reasons for the relative success of arranged marriages versus conventional marriages.

Separate research suggests those in arranged marriages — or who have had their partner chosen for them by a parent or matchmaker — tend to feel more in love as time grows, whereas those in regular marriages feel less in love over time. To test the theory of behaviour affecting emotions, Prof Wiseman, of the University of Hertfordshire, held a speed-dating night, where some of the prospective partners were asked to act as though they were already in love with each other. The 100 volunteers, taking part in the study in Edinburgh, were encouraged to hold hands, gaze into each other’s eyes, and whisper secrets to each other, according to the Daily Telegraph. When questioned at the end on their feelings, 45 per cent of those who had ‘acted in love’ wanted to see each other again — more than double the average rate of 20 per cent.
