The sensations of infatuation and chemistry are identical. They are the same thing. The scientific name for it is limerence.
If the person experiencing it is a tween or a teen, we call it infatuation and discount it as immature. When it happens to us as adults, we write poems and songs about it. We laud it as if it were a god. However, it is chemistry that often blinds us to red flags and leads to dysfunctional relationships.
Mature love is conscious love, not hormones.
