Chemical reaction

"The meeting of two personalities is like the contact of two chemical substances. If there is any reaction, both are transformed." - Carl Jung

What is this thing called "chemistry?" And why is it so important when a man and woman meet? Why are internet ads so utterly inadequate at communicating it?

I think of chemistry this way. You can preach all you want about how much you hate smoking. But you never know when you're going to fall in love with the Marlboro Man. Sometimes I think by specifying so narrowly our wants and needs, our requirements and "no ways" that we deny the simple fact that opposites attract.
