Chemistry of LOVE: Valentines day Chemistry

February 14th is Valentines day. No need to explain about this day to you. You may be planning to celebrate this day in your way!! To find your love and to have a long term relationship, there is one saying that you should have right chemistry or chemistry should match. For two people to fall in love the chemistry between them has to be just right.

“In chemistry different atoms and compounds combine together to form stable molecules and complexes, In the same way, if you get the right two people they will react together and make a very stable combination."

Do you believe in love at first sight? Or that the subtle scent a person gives off can attract or repel you? Or would you like to know why chocolate just makes everything better? Is romance all about chemistry

Some chemicals that come across love.
First, there's attraction. Nonverbal communication plays a big part in initial attraction and some of this communication may involve pheromones, a form of chemical communication.

The sweaty palms and pounding heart of infatuation are caused by higher than normal levels of norepinepherine.

Meanwhile, the 'high' of being in love is due to a rush of phenylethylamine and dopamine. Lasting love confers chemical benefits in the form of stabilized production of serotonin and oxytocin.

Suppression of vasopressin can cause males to abandon their love nest and seek new mates.
