Yeah, that's happened to me before. I met this guy while I was travelling to the US. We had a really, really intense instant connection and we stayed up all night talking, ended up kissing etc. but it didn't go further. Then I had to leave the next day and we exchanged a few emails but we were both realistic about not being able to have a relationship with him in the US and me in Australia after just one meeting. But I don't think I've ever felt so strongly about anyone STRAIGHT AWAY like I did about him and I'll never forget it.
Yeah, I've never believed in love at first sight until now, but man. It was really intense. It was the same with us, all night talking and holding each other and just tons of affection.
Have you moved on from him? I feel like it was probably just an ~experience and I need to move on but man...I've never felt that way before.
Yeah, this was about five years ago, so I've moved on. But I'll always remember how great that time was. Hey, maybe things don't have to end for you guys! You never know, right?
Yep. A guy was visiting some friends of mine, he'd moved to South America a few years prior. We met and it was instant. We were glued together for two days, until he left. We had one sober day and one a little less sober and more like what you had. We didn't stay in touch, I moved 1500 miles away about 3 days after he returned to South America. I'll never forget him. It was quick/instant love for both of us.
I've had the instant connection thing with someone, yes, but it did go further and it ended badly.
Haha I wait until you sober up until you make those conclusions.
Although, when I was in London this happened. I had this crazy connection with a guy I met on a train. We went on a date and texted for a while afterwards but I was about to go back to the US and nothing could have become of it. I still wonder what if though..
Maybe my post wasn't clear? I met him last weekend, so I've spent the last week sober haha!
Oh hahahaha I read it as though you were still tripping on acid.
Yes. But of course, real life got in the way. Our situations were never compatible but we've always felt that connection so we've kinda stayed in touch.
No because usually I have to know a person to care about them. Are you sure you ppl aren't mixing up infatuation with love?
In my wild youth, I had flings that were intensely deep, and very brief. In pondering the intensity of the connections I had with those guys, I guess that's something that happens when souls recognize each other from past life connections.
I'd be curious about what happened if you guys got together both sober. I'd daresay the connection wouldn't be there.
And no, that has never happened to me. I did sort of experience "love at first sight," even though it wasn't really at first sight, as I was actually a little bit confused by his appearance, but love at first interaction maybe? I don't know. It's a bit hard to really put a finger on.
Instant connection yes, but I wouldn't call it love at first sight. He's currently a very dear friend, with benefits.
No, mostly lust or interest.
Yes I have had an experience similar to what youre describing, but i wouldnt label it love.
I experienced an instant connection with my now-husband, but it wasn't love at first sight. It was like-a-lot at first sight, and then turned into love after a bit of time.
I think you were tripping, sorry.
I've felt an instant/deep connection with people because I was under the influence of drugs before. That's what it sounds like is happening here.
Yes, I've felt that before. Mostly on drugs. If you're on drugs you have to take your experiences with a grain of salt. It was real because it happened to you and perception is reality, but drug fueled connections are generally not sustainable.
