Does a Law on Human Attraction Exist?

12 replies
"Opposites attract" is a law of attraction, at least where electromagnetism is concerned. But are there laws about attraction between two people? "In a world that is full of strangers" as a line in a famous song of the 1980's goes, is there a clear set of rules that allows two people to fall for each other?

Is attraction a matter of chemistry?

Maybe. According to scientists, the attraction between animals of the opposite sex is all about chemicals called pheromones. The effect of pheromones in behavior of insects is the most studied to date. It has been observed, at least in some experiments, that pheromones are responsible for communication among same species and colony of ants. The horrible odor released by skunks to ward off enemies is said to be a kind of pheromone. Some species of apes rub pheromone-containing urine on the feet of potential mates to attract them. Some scientists believe that animals (usually the females) such as insects and mammals send out these chemical signals to tell the male of their species that their genes are different from theirs. This gene diversity is important in producing offspring with better chances of survival. The perfume industry has capitalized on pheromones as a means to increase one's sexual attractiveness to the opposite sex. Animals such as the whale and the musk deer were hunted down for these chemicals.

Lately, scientists are looking into the existence of human pheromones and its role in mate selection. There are many conflicting views in the realm of biology, chemistry, genetics, and psychology. Most scientists would assert that these do not exist, or if they do, do not play a role in sexual attraction between a man and a woman. But new researches such as that conducted by Swiss researchers from the University of Bern led by Klaus Wedekind are slowly making these scientists rethink their stand. Their experiment involved women sniffing the cotton shirts of different men during their ovulation period. It was found out that women prefer the smell of men's shirts that were genetically different, but also shared similarities with the women's genes. This, like in the case of insects and other mammals, was to ensure better and healthier characteristics for their future children. But researchers also cautioned that preference for a male odor is affected by the women's ovulation period, the food that men eat, perfumes and other scented body products, and the use of contraceptive pills.

Does personality figure in sexual attraction?

Yes, but so does your perception of a potential mate's personality. According to a research conducted by Klohnen, E.C., & S. Luo in 2003 on interpersonal attraction and personality, a person's sense of self-security and at least the person's perception of his/her partner were found to be strong determinants of attraction in hypothetical situations. What does this tell us? We prefer a certain personality type, which attracts you to a person. But aside from the actual personality of the person, which can only be verified through close interaction through time, it is your perception of your potential partner that attracts you to him/her, whether the person of your affection truly has that kind of personality or not. This could probably account for a statement commonly heard from men and women on their failed relationships: "I thought he/she was this kind of person."

So how does attraction figure in relationships?

You have probably heard that attraction is a prelude, or a factor towards a relationship. Most probably, at least in the beginning; but attraction alone cannot make a relationship work. It is that attraction that makes you notice a person from the opposite sex, but once you get to know the person more, attraction is just one consideration. Shared values, dreams, and passions become more significant in long-term relationships.

So should I stop trying to become attractive?

More than trying to become physically attractive, work on all aspects of your health: physical, emotional, mental, and spiritual. Physical attraction is still a precursor. Remember, biology predisposes us to choose the partner with the healthiest genes. Where your emotions are concerned, just ask this to yourself: would you want to spend time with a person who feels insecure about him/herself? Probably not! There is wisdom in knowing yourself: who you are, your beliefs, values, and dreams. And do not pretend to be someone you are not. Fooling another person by making him/her think that you share the same values and beliefs is only going to cause you both disappointments. When you are healthy in all aspects, attractiveness becomes a consequence and not an end. As mentioned in the Klohnen and Luo's research, a person's sense of self-security matters, perhaps even beyond attraction. But remember: do these things for yourself and not for other people. Only then can you truly harness your attractiveness as a person.

I hope that this helps you attract anything and everything that you want!

Be Blessed

    Bypass this writing unless you are looking to go deep. This is advanced writing, based on 'Advanced Inner Technology'...

    I would suggest a study in magnetism to comprehend this next statement. Opposites do not attract, rather, they seek to push through each others area of proximity presence of similar polarity, towards a regional area of sameness of similar polarity, for the purpose of being more of the polarity of itself.

    What we call magnetic attraction, is the physical material particle artifacts, that are magnetically polarized immersions, getting in the way of this pushing through dynamic of the magnetic polarity attempting to reach and augment regional areas of more of itself.

    If there were no physical particle materials imbedded within the polarization of a magnetic field, there would be nothing to stop the polarized magnetic field migration towards a regional area of more of itself. However, as material particle artifacts are imbedded within a magnetic field by means of causing their structural configuration to symmetrically align into a polarity, migration cannot occur, as the molecular structure density of the particle materials impede each others movement, hence, the appearance of opposite polarities attracting to each other. The particle materials are simply stopping each other from passing.

    In terms of the humankind, the male and female polarities, are actually both in the effort of pushing through and moving through each others psychological and mental densities, towards the being of something that is greater than their present state of either the emotional, mental, psychological or physical condition.

    Repulsion will behave opposite, wherein, similar magnetic fields attempt to occupy and maintain the coherent integrity of afield density strength, within a regional area of proximity.

    Lets go deeper...

    Comments concerning sexual attraction, are less than a surface reflection concerning the 'actuality behind reality'. Attraction is more about harmonic vibration sympathy's dynamically seeking to be more or less in a state of balance, or, shifting their preference towards a greater or lesser frequency resonance. *Behavior follows thought, psychological or otherwise..

    An individuals thought trend frequency pattern, will tend to favorably resonate with in-kind harmonic frequency expressions, hence, our eyeballs might like what they see, or should I say, what they think...

    Really understand this. Simplify the comprehension, as to whats really going on. Sum-up, all features that are particulars to the harmonic behaviors of energy in terms of frequency. Seek to recognize the underlying mechanics.

    Doing this exercise will cause the focus, of a mental psychology to occur, in terms of applying prescriptions of 'relative correspondence' behavioral attitudes, which will direct an individuals thought trend and thought trend patterns, directly towards tangible and or intrinsic explanation. This condition will cause perception to augment.

    *Note: I've been fortunate to have been enabled with the capacity to write a compendium of books based on , 'Advanced Inner Technology'.

    Please be aware, that current day academia scholastic presentations, are less than forthcoming concerning the way this environment communicates, functions, behaves, and, prescribes itself towards operation.


    I might suggest a bit of homework regarding celestial astronomy which will include temporal physics, sacred geometry which will include platonic solids, ancient mathematics which will include ancient differential mathematics as well as current day vortex mathematics, and sympathetic harmonics, which will include the ancient science of vibration. Lets move on.......

    Now think. We are immersed in an electromagnetic environment, that is both of and about ourselves. The protocols involving electromagnetism are subservient to the protocol of sympathetic harmonics, as energy behaves in relative character to its disposition of material presence. This means ALL distillations of energy that are expressed from 'beyond the absolute of potential', that are in this regional dimension of environment that is the physics of this Mother Nature.

    The character psychologies of the humankind species, are effected and directed by the frequency specifics the are particular to the physics of this Mother Nature.

    These mentioned frequency specifics,can be ascertained as to the temperament of their performance in terms of influence, through references expressed through the sciences of temporal physics, and ratio proportion geometries of platonic solids.

    As such, it can be seen, acknowledged, and observably recognized, that the humankind species is intimately attached to the relative behaviors of the physics of this Mother Nature within this regional dimension of environment.

    A clear perception as to the congealing or dissolving relationship behaviors of both organic and inorganic artifacts, can be found in the technologies of sympathetic harmonics, magnetism, and octave spectrum's of music.

    On A Question At Hand:

    On one of the questions at hand, there is a law of attraction, however it is currently presented to general populations in an incomplete manner. The law is part of a set of 7, wherein they behave in confluence to balance any applied potency of their individual characters.

    By the way:

    • A man and woman can naturally, or be artificially, caused to like or dislike each other.
    • Insects respond to chemical excretions, however, this is less than the stimulating cause of this action. Look towards the indigenous frequency that is specific to the life-form first, and then to their organic biological chemical affinity balancing reaction.
    • Skunks release an aromatic spray that is not horrible as mentioned in this case. Horrible, is a relative term of comparison, which is identified as something that is not tagged as being horrible. The term is used because a moral community told you its release is horrible, and is to be termed and treated as such.

    Believe me, the explanation concerning the 'actuality behind reality', can be lengthy to write about. Hope this little writing offers something to think about concerning male female interactive attraction.........

    In case that a law of human attraction exists nobody knows what is based on.
    Chemistry? Hmm... hard to belive... we humans are so disconnected from nature today and even such a law based on chemistry would exist I think it would not have a effect on us.
    Mentally? I tend to believe this is more the case. We are governed by all sort of paradigms and when we receive certain signals we are attracted like flies.

    Awesome post! It is really good to be attractive not only physically, spiritually but also mentally.

    It really feels good that you know that people are attracted to you.

    thanks for your is a very natural phenomena. the attraction can be to the physical or other qualities or traits of a person, or to such qualities in the context in which they appear. the attraction may be to a person's looks or movements or to their voice or smell, besides other factors. the attraction may be enhanced by a person's adornments, clothing, perfume, hair style, and anything else which can attract the sexual interest of another person.
