Getting into a relationship can have clear effects on our mental state, but it can also affect us physically as well. It might not be as obvious, but there are a number of weird ways your body can change when you get into a relationship, some of which seem a little obvious, but others that don't seem to have any correlation to romance. You're not going to all of a sudden have a totally new body or radiant skin, but you might see some subtle changes in how you feel once you begin dating someone.
