Are they one and the same? Does attraction guarantee chemistry? Does chemistry guarantee attraction?
Has this ever happened to you? I can look at a guy and be instantly attracted to him. Then we hang out and there are no sparks.
We don’t click.
On the other hand, I can meet a guy and not be instantly attracted to him (almost indifferent) and then hang out for more than a couple days and find there’s fireworks.
Isn’t it crazy…
how you can be in a crowded subway and not notice how everyone is pushed up against you…
but when the guy you like even so much as reaches over for popcorn and accidently brushes his arm against yours… that’s ALL you can think about?
That’s what chemistry does to a girl.
So what if it wasn’t love at first sight! Who cares about instant attraction?! It doesn’t guarantee chemistry.
80% of married couples interviewed in a survey (over 1000 people) reported they did not feel an immediate attraction to each other when they first met.
