Butterflies sensation/ mariposas en el estomago

Butterflies in the stomach is a medical condition characterized by the physical sensation of a "fluttery" or "tickling" (hence butterflies ) feeling in the stomach .

Some believe that this is caused by the release of epinephrine , or adrenaline when one is nervous, pulling blood away from the stomach and sending it to the muscles . This reduced blood flow, in turn, causes the stomach to temporarily shut down, and possibly the reason for reduced appetite during love sickness . Butterflies in the stomach is most often experienced prior to important events, when stress is induced, but can be experienced in situations of impending danger.

Regarding the transition of feelings into desire, we first feel a fairly physical attraction--focussed attention, openning your eyes and other senses to the other person. Many feel a "love high"--with weak knees, butterflies, thoughts of romance and even future marriage! Eventually we move into involvement when, after increasing interaction, we believe the other is also interested. It is noted that we often misread these "signals" of mutual interest!

Courtship is a dance!


Will you stay with me will you be my love
Among the fields of barley
And you can tell the sun in his jealous sky
When we walked in fields of gold

I never made promises lightly
And there have been some that I've broken
But I swear in the days still left
We will walk in fields of gold
We'll walk in fields of gold
