Why do guys always give chocolates and flowers to the one they like or love? Why do these things the main symbols of courtship? Except of course the song they offer to serenade the woman he is courting… Why do these things considered as a peace offering?
I have learned in our Biochemistry class that chocolates are composed of a chemical known as Phenylethylamine which have a physiological effect in our body. It causes changes in blood pressure and blood-sugar levels leading to feelings of excitement and alertness. It works like amphetamines to increase mood and decrease depression, but it does not result in the same tolerance or addiction. Phenylethylamine is also called the “love chemical” because it causes your pulse rate to increase, resulting in a similar feeling to when someone is in love. It is also said that this certain chemical is also present in the petals of a rose.
To the ladies, don’t be fooled by the things your suitors gave you. Be sure in making your decisions… or else… oh well, I don’t know! LOL! For the gents, now you know all these, make sure that you always give chocolates or roses when courting. It will definitely help you in making the girl fall for you and give her sweet yes. LOL!
