You get a chemical rush when you snuggle
When you snuggle, it feels like there is electricity running through your skin—in a good way. You’d swear you were glowing, and you feel a sensation that is both like tingling and complete stillness at once. In fact, your heart rate slows a little.
If he can’t sleep, neither can you
You both have restless nights on the same nights. It’s not even necessarily that your partner woke you up by making noise; you just both sensed that the other was restless, and it kept you awake.
You feel his stress
If he is under stress, you are under stress. You cannot just watch a show on your laptop, oblivious to the fact that he is panicking across the room. His emotions infiltrate you.
You’re extremely protective of him
The thought of him getting in a car accident or suffering a severe illness gives you a feeling almost as if somebody had kidnapped your own child—and you don’t even have a child. But that’s what it feels like when you think of someone you’re chemically bonded to being hurt
You feel calmer than ever after sex
Having sex with your partner makes you feel some of the similar sensations you feel after an incredibly deep and long sleep. When you’re chemically bonded to somebody, being physically close to them sends very relaxing hormones through your body.
You picture your children a lot
You can’t help but imagine what your children would look like. You don’t even necessarily know if you want children, but these adorable images of kids with his hair and smile keep popping up in your mind…You can’t help it when you’re chemically bonded because your body believes your partner is family now.
