Chemistry not dating
Love itself is as close as human beings can come to being selfless. Romantic love, on the other hand -- what so many confuse for actual love -- is little more than an obsession.
Helen Fisher, an American anthropologist and human behavior researcher focusing primarily on romantic interpersonal relationships has over 30 years of experience on the subject -- and I believe she’d agree with the distinction I’m making.
Better understanding the chemicals, functions and reasonings at work when we fall in love will help us be better at loving.From the research Fisher herself has so far collected, it is now believed that there are four basic personality types that decide what type(s) of person(s) you could potentially fall for.These types are classified according to the production levels of each of the four chemicals I previously mentioned. Builders: cautious individuals who tend to follow traditions and value persistence.2.She certainly agrees with my believing that romantic love is an obsession.There’s a very interesting TED talk by her that, if you have time, I’d recommend watching.
