Dating is at best another extracurricular, number six or number seven down the list, somewhere between Model UN and intramural badminton.

And it certainly won't bring you lasting love and fulfillment.
Researchers have identified a hormone that can embolden men sexually and make them less anxious about pursuing women.
It’s called kisspeptin, and codes for a gene called Kiss1. Researchers studied the effect of increased kisspeptin activity in male mice via a pharmacosynthetic technique called DREADDs (it stands for Designer Receptors Exclusively Activated by Designer Drugs).
Kisspeptin seems likely to be responsible for that phenomenon, too; it's usually associated with puberty and pregnancy.
