Every time he comes over and walks past me (within a 3 feet range), there is a horrid stench of body odor smacking me in the face. I try not to make a face and i do tell my sister but then she says she "doesn't smell anything bad"... Maybe it's his long hair thats making hims sweat a little extra?
So I'm wondering, is there a connection between smelling a person's BO and finding it revolting versus being attracted to them and being around them and not smell the BO at all?
(opposites attract like protons and electrons?)

Yuuuuup phermones. They're released all the time but tend to be stronger when you sweat I believe. When you're attracted to someone and see them as a potential mate etc etc you'll like the way it smells, when you don't then their BO is terrible to you. It's why your family members always seem to smell terrible to you. It's the body's way of preventing you from mating with people who have similar genetics so you dont produce offspring with higher chances of disabilities.2
