A look inside Instant Chemistry's book - The Love Manual: Making and Keeping a Connection. This book explains your DNA results in an easy-to-understand and meaningful way through anecdotal stories with a psychological perspective. This book is meant to provide meaningful information for your relationship.
You’ve met someone and there’s an initial attraction. Your date is not a loser, not a bad person, not a psycho, or a user. Whew, all the run-don’t-walk-away signs are absent. You’ve taken endless compatibility and psychology tests but the dejavu is ringing true again. You’ve practically worn down the path of great beginnings. It starts off well and then there are those private thoughts that start creeping in: Really? I don’t like that at all! That makes me uncomfortable. I’m not sure that would work for me. It’s not the fit I thought it was…
In one of the biggest cities of the world, New York City is known to be an extremely difficult dating scene when it comes to filtering through the crowd that is most compatible with you. Taso and Maria Pardalis, a couple in New York City with two lovely children, decided to take our compatibility test after a bit of skepticism. Maria is a believer in the saying that “things are meant to be,” and never considered using science to determine the compatibility of her marriage.
It is well known that genes are an important part of who we are, but did you know that genes also play an important role in our relationships? We know that genes influence our behaviour and in fact, a whole area of science is dedicated to understanding this – behavioural genetics. But perhaps less well known, is that genes also affect how we look for a relationship and how compatible we are with that person.
Putting the Love Puzzle Together Maybe it was around the time my mother’s third marriage ended that I became interested in the nature of love relationships, what made them prosper and what made them sink like the Titanic, taking down all but a very few survivors. At the time, in an immigrant section of Brooklyn, no one got divorced; the word had barely made it into the everyday lexicon. Years later, with relationship issues practically making the headlines daily, figuring out what makes them work and what contributes to their demise is still a big assignment. It is no surprise that a few decades later, as a psychologist specializing in relationship compatibility, I still have questions and I continue to be intrigued by the intricacies and complexities of this thing called love.
