These Funny Feelings...

As Tina Turner sang about in the '80's hit "What's Love Got To Do With It?", we are at the mercy of multiple chemical components of love and lust.

From that bubbly first euphoria to the crushing rejection and heartbreak, here are some surprising insights from the science of attraction.

Scientific American explains how we are subliminally drawn to compatible mates and traces the flow of chemicals in the brain during different phases of romance.

As the narrator concludes. "The next time you feel the flutters the first love or the sting of rejection, remember that much of the way you feel is explained by transient chemical changes in the brain and those same changes are happening in billions have brains around the world right now. Just as they have for millions of years"
