If only it were that simple but it isn't.
If it was merely a chemical reaction, everyone would react the same and have very similar symptoms. Just like a drug or any chemical,
we would all have the same reaction, and would know for how long.
And there wouldn't be different kinds of love. If it is indeed just a chemical and hormones, then we wouldn't love our grandmothers differently then
our friends. How would parents adopt children and love them as their own?
There is no biological connection there.And it certainly doesn't fit the ecological profile.
There are a million factors into how we choose our mates, and it is quite complicated. For most species, it is the most biologically fit.
There are only a few species that mate for any duration.
While love may be biologically based, it is not logical in a lot of ways. Humans love past child bearing years. I have seen one spouse die quickly
after another. There is no sense into loving into old age. People stay in love despite not being able to reproduce. Again, that doesn't happen in
yes, the instant attraction and the honeymoon stage is biological. But nature's concern stops there. You breed, you reproduce, you raise the child
together. But the biology stops there.
So a sincere question for the "Just say no to love" campaign or AAL, or atsers against love, why isn't any breakup only temporary? Any addictions
the withdrawels last from a week to a month. So why do people die of broken hearts? Why are people gunshy for years after a bad breakup? Why are the
symptoms completely different then a typical addiction?
Why isn't there a cure? A cure for heartbreak would reap in billions. So why hasn't one been developed yet?
