"I don't get it.. I'm attractive, smart, sensitive, accomplished. Why doesn't he or she flip for me? Why can't I find love?"
Why, when history is strewn with broken hearts, do we now claim the means to make someone fall in love with us? Because, after centuries of resistance, science is finally unraveling what romantic love actually is, what triggers it, what kills it, and what makes it strong
Just as ancient tribesmen saw an eclipse and thought it was black magic, we looked at love and thought it was enchantment. but, as we enter the 21st century, we are discovering that love is a definable and calculable blend of chemistry, biology, and psychology. (And, well, maybe a little black magic thrown in.)
