But are vacation romances really just about fantasy suites and too many tropical cocktails?

It seems there may be some science behind why we are more likely to fall in love (or lust) on vacation.  A New York Times columnist reviewed scientific research to see if it was possible to make two people fall in live under controlled circumstances.

Read on to see what happens when she attempted to replicate the study.

After reviewing the article, the premise makes sense to me.  Perhaps The Love Boat was on to something after all!


Now if only the folks over at The Bachelor could catch on… but what fun would THAT be to watch?!
