Why I’ve advocated the arts of gaining and replenishing the perpetual springtime of love.
There are different types of happiness. There is the dopamine ecstatic in the moment rush high type. The oxytocin warm meaningful connected contentment type. The endorphin/opioid feeling no pain body buzz pleasure type. And there is the top of the social heap serotonin type.
If being happiest means maxing out as many types as possible, then that happens when in passionate connection relationship, and as far as I know only then.
