About This Quiz
Most of us probably don't think of the chemistry lab as a place where attraction and love are fostered in any meaningful way, but when you think about it, it's almost too perfect. Isn't love a very chemical process? Hormone levels and pheromones and all sorts of different chemical reactions are going on when you meet someone you find attractive, and all of those affect the biological functions that help move this whole love thing along. There's just a lot of science in love and relationships, even when we can't see it.
Maybe we don't want to speak about love in scientific terms because it seems to take the passion out of it and make it sound impersonal. The passion gets washed away when it's all scholarly and dry like that. But maybe we can add some emotion to those dry, scientific terms. So how about you tell us a bit about yourself and your relationship and we'll run that info by the greatest quiz chemists we can find and determine with a stunning degree of scientific accuracy exactly which chemical reaction most perfectly represents the relationship that you're currently in. Do you doubt we can do it? Take the quiz and see!
