Chemistry is one of those things that you either have with someone or you don't. You can't force chemistry, but when you meet someone new and you have it, it's an incredible rush. So, what are the early signs of emotional chemistry that you should be keeping an eye out for when you're dating someone new? Is it something that happens immediately? Or is it something that builds over time? How long do you have to wait to be sure?
I don’t know about you, but I'm impatient, especially if I'm talking to someone new who I really like. So naturally, I want to know right away if the chemistry I'm feeling is just sexual or if there's something deeper there, too. Not that there's anything wrong with just having sexual chemistry, but if you're looking for more than something casual, then it's best to know if there's potential or not before you get too deep into your feelings. So, I reached out to NYC relationship expert Susan Winter to see what insights she could give us about early signs of emotional compatibility, or, as she describes it, "that instantaneous 'click' that we feel when we meet someone new. We immediately sense a connection that indicates we share a mutual understanding." Here's what she says to look out for.
