After having a cup of coffee with my girlfriend, I started thinking …
Why do we choose to use the word “chemistry” in our conversations so often, especially when we refer to “falling in love?”
And when did the term “Falling in Love” fall out of Fashion?
I understand that the food we eat that comes from animals and plants is preserved with chemicals, the fabric used to make our clothing is often treated with chemicals, medicine, vitamins, and just about everything that can be found in a grocery store or pharmacy contains chemicals of some form or another…but our emotions?
Of course there is scientific evidence that a chemical reaction occurs in our brains when we experience that moment of attraction. But when we refer to these amazing, wondrous physiological simulating responses as some version of “laboratory results” in our everyday conversations, we desensitize the incredible emotions they truly are.
I don’t know about you, but I much more enjoy hearing someone say “I love YOU” than… “I am having a chemical reaction for you!”
In fact, if someone said that to me I might have to strongly consider ending the relationship! 🙂
I am joking of course!
But what is your take?
