Attraction is a complex phenomenon that involves various scientific factors, including:

1. **Biological Factors:** Attraction can be influenced by biological processes like the release of hormones (e.g., dopamine, oxytocin) that play a role in bonding and pleasure.

2. **Physical Appearance:** Studies show that people are often attracted to symmetrical faces and certain body proportions, which may be linked to evolutionary preferences for healthy mates.

3. **Psychological Factors:** Personalities, interests, and values can influence attraction. People often seek partners who share similar beliefs and goals.

4. **Social and Cultural Factors:** Societal and cultural norms play a significant role in shaping what is considered attractive. These norms can vary widely across different cultures and time periods.

5. **Proximity:** The mere exposure effect suggests that people tend to be attracted to those they encounter frequently, such as coworkers or neighbors.

6. **Similarity:** People are often drawn to those who share common interests, backgrounds, or values.

7. **Chemistry:** There is a subjective "chemistry" or connection that can develop between individuals, which can be influenced by a combination of the above factors.

It's important to note that attraction is highly individual and can't be reduced to a single formula. It's influenced by a complex interplay of biological, psychological, and social factors that vary from person to person.

There is a lot of science that goes into attraction, including biological, psychological, and sociological factors. On a biological level, attraction is often based on physical characteristics, such as symmetry, body proportions, and facial features. On a psychological level, attraction is influenced by factors like personality, sense of humor, and emotional intelligence. And on a sociological level, attraction is shaped by social factors like shared interests, cultural background, and social status. Together, all of these factors play a role in how people perceive and experience attraction.

Once we become attracted to someone, the reward centers in our brains begin to fire and release dopamine, norepinephrine, and serotonin. Simply being physically close to them causes a release of dopamine, which makes us feel rewarded. The feelings of giddiness and euphoria are thanks to norepinephrine.
