Exploring the Myths and Realities of Love Chemistry

When you think about the qualities found in a true "soul mate" relationship, one word comes up most often on the top of your list, CHEMISTRY! Is There Really a Chemistry of Love? I don't think there are any magic love potions that you can use to make someone fall in love (my opinion), but I think chemistry does play an important role in how a relationship starts and progresses.

Just the mention of Chemistry conjures up powerful feelings and images for anyone who has ever been in or seeking a love relationship. It is often described as a feeling that leaves you breathless, excited and weak in the knees. Palms sweat, the heart races and the body tingles with nervous anticipation.
It is believed by virtually everyone that true love cannot exist without chemistry. Therefore, the conclusion most would-be lovers come to is that if they experience these intense feelings towards someone, they have the basis for an ideal and lasting relationship. This definition of love chemistry is limited to one's physical response to another person. It lacks an entire dimension that resides in our values, beliefs, personalities and worldview.
In order to know you have the right connection with a potential (or existing) partner, it's important to have a basic knowledge of what real chemistry consists of, instead of embracing only the myths that surrounds it. This can be difficult to do. This intense, physical passion is the stuff that Oscar winning movies and best-selling books are made of.
