Romantic pairings have long been a mystery to outside observers. How do you account for the bus driver married to the physicist, the staunch Republican partnered with the die-hard liberal? Learn about empirically rigorous answers to why we fall in love with one person rather than another, explore the roles of temperament and personality type in romance, and gain some fascinating scientific insights into the essence of dating, love, and marriage.
Helen Fisher, Ph.D., a professor of anthropology at Rutgers University, has been doing for a number of years what many thought could never be done--determining the physiological base for such seemingly unquantifiable states as romantic love, attraction, and long-term bonding. She’s the author of the acclaimed Anatomy of Love and Why We Love: The Nature and Chemistry of Romantic Love, described by eminent biologist Richard Dawkins as, “poetic, sexy, beguiling and, all at the same time, scientific.”
