The Science Behind Romance, Lust and Love

The Science Behind Romance, Lust and Love
BY ROBIN LALLY
SPECIAL TO NEWJERSSEYNEWSROOM.COM

With Valentine’s Day just a day away, love, romance and the yearning for a satisfying relationship often becomes more magnified than at other times during the year.

If you are in a committed relationship, it’s not unusual to wonder if it will last. If you can’t seem to make that perfect connection, you may ask yourself what you’re doing wrong. And if you are the type of person to go from one romantic hook up to the next, finding a partner who will rescue you from what you may think is a road to nowhere may seem impossible.

To help us decipher some of the science behind romance, lust and love, we thought Valentine’s Day would be a good time to ask three Rutgers researchers to help us understand which relationships seem to work, why others don’t and how to look at your partner in a realistic light.

The three – Diana Sanchez, an associate professor in the Department of Psychology in the School of Arts and Sciences in New Brunswick, Charlotte Markey, a professor of psychology at Rutgers University-Camden and Harold Siegel, chair of the Department of Psychology at Rutgers University-Newark – have been studying love and relationships for decades and agree that being true to yourself may make the journey less rocky and much more satisfying.
