Today, my fiancé and I were having sex. In the middle of it he said, "I want us to be covalent bonds". I didn't understand what he meant, and he actually stopped to explain it to me. FML

I guess it's more of a hydrogen bond now, right? Not so strong.

Chemistry just isn't your thing, Na mean?

Don't underestimate the power of H+, especially when pumping.

I think the fiance suffered a dipole, literally.

I think you mean London dispersion since hydrogen bonds are the strongest IMFs ;)

No, I meant hydrogen bonds, since they're weaker than covalent bonds and even ionic bonds.

Hydrogen bonds are the strongest intermolecular bonds. I'd rather my relationship with my SO be inter rather than intra.

Some of these comments are a scathing indictment to the education system...

My bad, I would have said dipole dipole since they're even weaker than hydrogen bonds Though yes I am aware they're weaker than covalent and ionic bonds

the level of retard here is STRONG. INTRAmolecular forces are way stronger than covalent bonds. London despersion forces LDF are the weakest, followed by dipole bonds, then hydrogen bonds, then the latter. No need to downvote #36 Just because you don't know what LDF are.

More like dispersion force that connects them right now

Nah, Hydrogen bonds are the strongest!

It's the third time I see you commenting on a FML post. I recognize you by your profile picture xD

In strength from greatest to least it's covalent, hydrogen, dipole dipole, then London dispersion

I'm married to a chemist. He likes to do it on the table, periodically.

I'm sad I missed out on making these puns. They were right on the tip of my tungsten.

All the good puns argon. If I can get a little He He that's good enough for me, K.

At least he didn't say that you have 67 protons.

I bet they do it on the table periodically.

Na I deserved it. Ill just sulphur through it.

You had a golden opportunity there, and you took it.

Lesson learn: don't ask him what it means just go along with it.

Exactly, #5. Better to just say, 'Yeah. Oh, **** yeah!' because geeks need love too.

for those who dont know: covalent bonds are like really big versions of chimpanzees

#6 Maybe you and OP can go back to high school and take chemistry again?

What the **** are you smoking, man.

I feel like the reason there are only five other comments is because nobody wanted to think about the long explanation of what OP's boyfriend meant

Which was what, that he wanted negative forces to come between them? His comment still makes no sense to me.

Stop being so electro-negative about all this OP, other wise you'll jeopardise your bond.
