“… Chemistry Is A Connection Between Two …

…   …

 … Passion Is A Stirring In You …”



The Hallmark Channel

… I have long wondered aloud … Why I LOVE to watch the Hallmark Channel … Though in reality I actually have my seasons when I watch regularly … And then I have times when I take extended breaks from Hallmark Channel Movies …

… After all … The scripts and plots are very similar … And the outcomes are generally preordained … 

… But for some reason they fascinate me … 

… My most recent fav is Fashionably Yours


… I get it … I am a ‘Hopeless Romantic’ at heart … But that does not fully explain my attraction to the Hallmark Channel …

… I finally figured it out one day …


… I like to see and figure out if the paired couple in the movie have …

… Real Chemistry … OR … If they are just scripted to come together in the end and they exhibit some form of self-directed, internally motivated … Passion toward each other … Based on what they once wrote on a piece of paper … or thought was ‘Their Type’ …

… Watching the Hallmark Channel … Is just my way of being … 

… A self-proclaimed ‘Highly Trained Observer of the Human Condition’ … 

… A Personality Portrait Stuff …


Chemistry vs. Passion

In short …

… Chemistry is difficult to define … But you know it when you see it and ‘FEEL’ it …

… You also know when you DONT have it …

Passion on the other hand is easier to spot … It is simply some internal drive to have and likely hold someone … 

… Now that other Someone may not likely nor initially return your Interest … And they generally do not share the Drive or Intensity to …  ‘Get With You’ … In the same way that you Desire to … ‘Get With Them’ … But eventually they might exhibit in return … Some SHORT TERM … Desire toward you …


Chemistry is a manifested True Connection …


Passion is just your Soul or Ego (Freud) working overtime …


Chemistry USUALLY works long term … 

… Because it is SO RARE AND HARD TO FIND …


Passion fades … 

… Particularly … If you actually ‘Get What You Want’ …


Help Me … Help You … 

… Here is one way to tell the difference … A person once told me … 

… A person that I actually, gladly do not speak with any more … 


… “You have to learn to distinguish the difference between the people who are Sent to ‘Help You’ … 

… From the people who you are Sent to ‘Help’” …


… Or Stated Another Way …

… Is there real Chemistry between you two …


… Is (s)he a helper …

… Made Just For You? …



The Lord God said, “It is not good for the man to be alone … I will Make a Helper who is Just Right for him.”

Genesis 2:18 (NIRV)
