The chemistry of love

The stages of Valentine love: Rutgers University says there are 3 stages of love which are lust, attraction and attachment. Each of these stages can be driven by different hormones and pheromones. The first stage of lust-love is driven by the sex hormones testosterone and estrogen in both sexes bringing strong sexual urges. The second stage attraction-love is the truly love-struck and totally focused/can’t think of anything else/blind in love stage driven by adrenaline, dopamine and serotonin. The stage 3 attachment-love is the bond that keeps couples together for them to have and raise children and this third stage of love is driven by oxytocin (the cuddle hormone) and vasopressin (the commitment hormone).

Nothing else is like the first love.
