So what attracts us? Biology vs love (ahh)

I couldn't help think how many people on the internet find themselves a mate. Now I never considered myself a very good candidate for that because I've always found mates through some completely random occurence where the face to face interaction was key.

That got me thinking to the whole biological aspect to it. Now i'm not going to break down the chemicals and other shit that would be way too tedious here. But there is that basic idea that hormones we secrete at a very minor level are picked up subconsciously by a potential mate. That mate also uses sight to subconsciously "look over" a potential to look for child bearing capabilities weaknesses strengths etc. Don't know where taste fits in. Guess the fun part!

Now that seems all too cold and very unstory like. But I can personally say that the women i have absolutely been the closest too have all had a particular scent that is extremely magnified. If they're wearing a certain scent and I am attached to them, my nose goes crazy. I could pick that scent like a hound dog. Always gave me a sense of comfort. Hence the biological aspect.

Now what about the love (ahhh) fate aspect. Many women I've talked to have said they had this dreamy idea of a night shining armor and the grand life as a little girl. Ok but where does that idea come from? Sure there's stories movies and such. But did those all stem from the need for more? To have something more than nature putting us together at random?.
Is coming together just that? Random chemicals coming together creating a sense of euphoria and dizzying wonderment? Or is it some wonderful hollywood like souls coming together type scenario? And where does the internet fit in? I have my ideas but trust me the volumes could be written! What are yours?

I think it depends on whether you are looking for a life partner or just a quick shag. Looks become less important when you are looking for a life partner other qualities seem more relevant. Both biology and love at first sight can happen. We come together for a reason and it might not always be the one we think it is.

Very true we often go for the reasons we least thought it was!
