On an innate level, when the brain identifies danger it does not always differentiate between a life-threatening emergency and a stressful, but much safer, first date.

Seeing a lover prompted activity in four distinct brain regions that were not active when looking at pictures of the friend, New Scientist reported last week. One was a spot in the medial insula, the mysterious central lobe of the brain whose function is still a puzzle.

Going on a date and getting to know a new partner in the early phases of a relationship, when you are still relative strangers, is an evaluative experience.
