What are the Specific Traits That Create a Strong Chemistry Between a Man and a Woman?
Same Sense of Humour
It goes without saying that laughter creates an emotional connection between two people – and it’s always better when a man and a woman can laugh together at the same things.
In fact, research has shown that romantic attraction increases between men and women who share the same sense of humor. It’s also a key form of social chemistry, which allows you to engage with someone because you share something that flourishes so well in a social setting.
Shared Values and Desires
You’ll get on much more easily with a potential romantic partner if the two of you share the same values and desires in terms of where you want to be in life.
Values are, after all, what dictate how we live our life, while desires dictate where we want to go in life. If the two of you have common ground on both of these, chemistry will build because you’re moving in the same direction.
A study has shown that responsiveness is key to the development of a romantic relationship.
When we speak of responsiveness, we’re referring to the interpersonal chemistry between two people. In other words, how you communicate and respond to each other and how you interact with each other.
If, for example, he or she finishes your sentences, it’s a strong sign. If he or she supports you, responds positively to your ideas and ambitions (and even shares them), it’s another strong sign.
Essentially, it’s all about getting into a positive rapport with someone and sharing an emotional connection that increases feelings of a shared bond. We feel in touch with someone, we’re on their frequency – and we vibe with them.
A Sense of Similarity
While some people will tell you that opposites attract, one of the key traits that creates chemistry between a man and a woman is actually similarity.
This is in terms of your personality traits, your communication style and – as we’ve seen – your sense of humor and your values.
The more you recognise yourself in the other person, the more chemistry there will be. Mutual trust and understanding will be there from the start and a strong relationship can flourish.
P.I.E (Physical, Intellectually and Emotional Attraction)
Attraction isn’t just physical – it’s also intellectual and emotional.
While looks are naturally important for chemistry, it’s far more important that P.I.E in its entirety falls into place.
For example, if you “get” them on an intellectual level – you share their ideas, you’re attracted to the language they use and the way they communicate – you’re more likely to bond with them.
It’s the same with forming an emotional attraction, too, which is when you’re on the same emotional plane in terms of maturity and the way you handle things. If you’re both strong, confident and calm people, there’ll be lots of chemistry.
