Phenylethylamine (PEA), the chemical responsible for the swooning and feelings of adoration, is structurally similar to cocaine. Most people choose cocaine over love when given the chance. I wouldn’t say that’s a bad choice. The endorphins released during infatuation are similar to heroin; only they don’t make you skinny and pale. Oxytocin, the cuddling hormone, most often found in new mothers and newlyweds, is like ecstasy- every touch feels a bit tinglier. Love exists in a bottle. In a syringe. I want mine diluted with water.
