Light And Sweet.....

a: Hydrogen bond ~
b: two people hugging

What: This is the association from the linked page. Ionic bonding is a lot more intense and the electrons go in just 1 direction and the energy it takes to break these bonds is very high. So if a hydrogen bond is like a hug an ionic bond is like sexual intercourse.
