There's a common misconception that chemistry is instant-- the moment you meet someone you either have chemistry or you don't. However, matchmakers say it's not that simple.
Matchmakers describe chemistry as a "romantic buzz" and "natural flow;" "shared values, interests and excitement about spending time together." It grows over time, according to spiritual matchmaker Heather Kristian Strang and matchmaker and founder of Stef And The City Stephanie Safran.
So how long does it take to know if you have chemistry with someone?
At least two dates, but matchmakers recommend three.
