    Have you ever felt a strange connection with someone?

    It's hard to explain. Such as, you feel it pulling you to them and you can't seem to control it. It's as if you are metal being pulled to a magnet. Not exactly sexual or physical attraction, something deeper that you can't put into words and somehow you get the feeling that they feel it too.

    It's a very strange and strong feeling of attraction, almost feels supernatural. You feel hyper-aware of their presence, encounter coincidences and synchronicities out of your control that seem to drawn you together, immediate kinship/affinity and deep connection, shared sense of familiarity/recognition and ease/comfort, and almost an intuitive feeling of predestination - that you were meant to cross pathes with this person.

    It's something spiritual to where there is some sort of energy similarity between your souls and that energy is trying to reunite itself, which it obviously can't do since it is being expressed through too many different souls.

    Anyone have any similar experiences to share?
    Is there a name for this?

    I think I have something like this...

    But I have a feeling that it's just me being horny. (men )


    But yeah, I kinda feel bad that I have never felt something like this (or at least acted on it )

    YES. Oh my gosh, yes. I'm not even sure how to expand upon this, but yes. You described it perfectly. (Gosh, it's threads like this that make me love this forum. :P) It's a feeling that I kind of describe as "I need to know you completely", except the feeling is more as though I already know the person and what I want to do is learn every little thing about them and share every little part of myself in return -- with the sense that we almost wouldn't have to explain any of it because the connection would be so strong... like connecting on another level of consciousness or something. The term "kindred spirits" comes to mind, although it feels like even more than that. Soulmates, possibly? (Although there are several different definitions of what 'soulmate' means.) I don't get it very often, but when I do, it's very intense and can be overwhelming. I've learnt to trust this sense somewhat, because I've never been totally off-base with it when I've gotten to know someone better. The most significant experience with this so far ended up breaking my heart; not because I was wrong but because I'll likely never get to be as close to this person as I want to be, for a handful of reasons. It's still painful to think about, especially because I have some degree of contact with the person in question. I dunno, maybe some is better than none and I should feel grateful for even knowing her at all... but damn, it hurts. I want to have so much more with her than will ever be possible...

    Anyway, I hear ya. It's awesome to know I'm not alone in this feeling. :)

    That definitely happens to me. In fact, when I've made friends with someone I haven't felt this way about, I become very confused. "This is not how relationships work."

    I tend to have an instinct for, "This is a person I will get along with." I always give everyone a chance! And I am very frequently surprised, and that is always incredibly pleasant~ I'm normally just not paying enough attention to notice someone unless I notice something about them that makes me think, "You're like me."

    The suckiest part I think, is settling for regular friendships after that person, haha.

    So no, I hope I never feel that with anyone. It sounds beautiful though.

    I have this feeling with my long distance gf. It took me 44 years to find her and its like a great many things that happened in my life somehow seem to have been in preparation for this.
    Through a series of coincidences we both ended up at the same time and place on an internet forum(that had nothing whatsoever to do with dating) and on the exact moment that we were both ready to begin a relationship.

    After a little bit of smalltalk we suddenly crossed a threshold in our conversation and it felt like we were going from zero to warp 10 in an instant.

    Absolutely. I have felt *immediate* and I DO mean immediate connection with people and immediate disgust. It depends but it really makes me think more on the validity of past lives. And no, I can't control my feelings about these people. There is a lady at work, within seconds I liked her &I years later we still continue our friendship. There is no explaining with these people, it's like you've been together for 100s of lifetimes.

    My grandfather and I have always had a very special relationship. We always had an unspoken bond and could relate in ways that went beyond any other relationship I've had with another person.

    He has cancer now and it's very hard. I look into his eyes and I can feel his pain. He looks at me and I know he doesn't care for himself at all, he only wishes he could be there for me longer. It's weird, but we don't have to communicate verbally, it's like we telepathically connect to each other.

    Insane. I thought I might be defunked or broken for feeling this way. The persons I've ever resonated like this with have always been in passing. Like I would just rest my sight on them and know there is something about them that kind of transcends where we are at the time, rarely is there a connection to where I have to meet them, but for the times that I've felt it I never acted on it. The two times that this had happened to me were first in Illinois when I were riding the bus with my g-ma, and these two dudes came on the bus. One with an afro with a massive beaded rosary intertwined along his arm, and the other standing without a care in the world, both harnessing massive backpacks so I can only guess they were traveling monks or some such in a very urban way.

    Second time was this horrific acid trip that I won't get into. This guy there, an infp, I had once encountered years earlier with less than stellar results (I am severely fragmented it turns out). But once again he shows up at a pivotal moment in life, this time a breakdown, but his demeanor was something far beyond everyone else present. For whatever reason though it might've been the acid, I had the strongest urge to meet him as in some predestined way. Oh wells. Hopefully this phenomenon happens again to where I can actually enact on it than sit by the sidelines.
