- If feelings and emotions are nothing but chemical reactions then ¿Is the inevitable fading of love just a tolerance or a saturation our neurons develop?

- Love, yeah. We all know what it means, but try to find even two people who agree on that meaning. There is more to a successful partnership than the passion or personal liking that may start off a long-term relationship, and while some of that may fade, other valuable feelings may grow to replace it.Apr 30, 2012
- This is a bad idea and is as likely to cause dysfunctional attachments (think Stockholm Syndrome) as functional attachments.
All relationships take two people. Each one has to be capable of being satisfied with what the other can provide.
There are very likely to be anti-attachment mechanisms also mediated through oxytocin. We know there is such a thing as anti-maternal bonding. Think of postpartum infanticide, something that all mammals exhibit (under the right/wrong circumstances). What is the physiology of that? Unless you know (and we know that the physiology of it is unknown), you should be afraid of messing with things that you don't understand.
But then that is exactly where fools rush in.Apr 30, 2012
