Sympathy for the devil

What drives people? What are the mechanics behind attraction? What compels single people from pairing up with a life partner they hope will be with them until the end? One of my friends is recently going through a somewhat ugly breakup on her eleven-hundredth attempt to find prince charming, which had me wondering about the science behind relationships and attraction.

When you first meet someone you like, you do not notice how his breath smells or that he has the ugly habit of scratching his butt too often, during the infatuation phase he is prince charming, everything you wanted and more and the science behind the whole process is your brain feeding you dopamine (which produces a high similar to that of cocaine) resulting in phenomena such as energy boosts, appetite suppression, heart palpitations, accelerated breathing, hyperactivity, and insomnia.

All of this induces hormone levels to rise and before you know it, you are having sex as often as it is humanly possible, but what happens when the infatuation ends? The chemistry at work here responds to the dopamine withdrawal and studies have found that regions of the brain which are activated during a breakup are the same that come into play when experiencing physical pain.

So how do you keep a level head and avoid a potential broken heart? My most recent advice to my friend has been to keep her eyes open and maybe on her next attempt, perhaps lower her standards a level or two, surely the guy you date next will not be super hot, but there is a number of things he will not be, self-absorbed, narcissistic and a liar and with the chemistry at work against you, it might be best to go with the sane choice than dating the devil and hoping that with a little love and patience, he can be turned into Mr. Right.

That almost never works, just FYI.

Life is a series of transitions. It’s not about where you are right now. It’s about which direction you’re going. Smile, and drink a frappuccino.
