Your Top Sex Questions -- Answered!

How important is it to feel chemistry for your partner?
If you want a passionate, intense relationship, it's crucial. If the word "content" makes you feel warm and fuzzy, then it may be less important. Chemistry changes the dynamics of a relationship, and the more you have, the more powerful -- and therefore the more dangerous -- it will be. And that isn't for everyone.

It's perfectly possible to click with someone and have a lovely time together without ever feeling "chemistry" with that person. And controlled "sensible" relationships suit many people, as well. At the same time, while chemistry won't guarantee that your love lasts a lifetime, it's a bloody good start. Even the healthiest, happiest relationships have massive boring bits. And chemistry is what keeps us hanging around to see if things improve -- rather than dashing out the door the second problems start.
