How Love Works

Aphrodisiacs, chemicals, and hormones–love depends on a natural high.  Giddy with desire, blissed out with fantasy, love addicts are people bound together with chains as influential as DNA.  Blind, but feeling, love prioritizes life. Like adrenaline, it prefers excitement and danger and fights and wild conversation. When it leaves, it scorns its hosts. They never understand the sweaty palms, the flirtatious glances, the consuming passions were chemical bonds. They opt for pity and tears and everlasting withdrawal.

Friendship, admiration, respect, lucky lovers are given a substitute drug–without the violent high, but with longer effect.
