    I fear I share your dilemma of getting my ideas mixed up when trying to process a thought verbally.
    Good speech. But my head hurts trying to follow you.

    Now a great follow up question would be: How long does it the average guy before that chemical commitment takes effect within the brain?
    Also as for women:
    Are we talking love chemicals after a great one night stand?
    Or more specifically, how many orgasms until a women hits this chemical peak?

    can someone explain to me the very end. What I understand from her words is that she says, the two groups (married and committed men) have lower testosterone. She says the testosterone dropped when they committed. When I look at her graph I would say a high testosterone level was key for love. Isn't this controversial? or am I missing something?

    Yes girls please stop sleeping with guys so quick 😭 wait at least a year. Fully get to know him. If you wouldn’t have a baby with him don’t sleep with him. You will avoid unwanted pregnancies and the world will be a better place. Choose your babies father wisely and listen to your gut feeling always

    I was attempting to make love potions when I was 13 by injecting these hormones in certain amounts to make the person fall in love...but the question was...whether the production of these hormones that help in falling in love or it is falling in love that produce these hormones in the I gave up for the time being...and now I am going to go to medical school hoping to study the human body...may be then i will have more facts and info to make love potions....

    What if they do commit, but something scares them and they break it off even after you've done everything for them. I gave my first time to a guy who later told me he couldn't commit even after we talked about wanting to settle down. Grandma is right, but anyone can choose to leave at anytime. Love can fade overtime...sadly :(

    Granny is right. If a girl sleeps with me the 1st night, why would she think we're a couple in the morning? She's the last girl i would date. Then they cry & say this never happens. Right, like I'm so special she had to bang me the 1st night. LOL .
