According to a study done by Robin Dunbar, a professor of evolutionary anthropology at Oxford, falling in love comes at the cost of losing two close friends.
Researchers asked people about their inner core of friendships and how this number changed when romance entered the equation. They found the core, which numbers about five people, dropped by two as a new lover came to dominate daily life.
Professor Dunbar explained that people who are in romantic relationships have only four, rather than five, in their circle. "And bearing in mind that one those is the new person that's come into your life," he points out, "it means you've had to give up two others."
