Love and attraction may be something that we romanticize over in movies, literature, and daydreams, but science is actually starting to explain a lot of it. The chemistry behind relationships focuses around hormones. They key to successful relationships, is the release of bonding hormones. So, looking for a summer romance? Here are some activities that release oxytocin and vasopressin, chemicals that cause bonding between a couple.
Do something new:
find a new recipe and cook together
visit a new museum/local spot
learn a new sport, take up knitting, or enroll in a ballroom class together
Do something scary/exhilarating:
go on a roller coaster
watch a scary movie
Have other ideas? As long as its something new or something exciting, it'll do just the trick :) If you think of other good ones leave them in the comment section and maybe I'll post a full list later!
“We were given: Two hands to hold. To legs to walk. Two eyes to see. Two ears to listen. But why only one heart? Because the other was given to someone else. For us to find.”
Have a romantic and fun summer all!
