In so many romance novels, we see an instant connection with the hero and heroine before they ever speak to each other. Is it love at first sight? Or something a little less sentimental and a little more…physical?
My own personal experience has led me to believe that you can have an instant attraction to someone, but a real connection can only come when you have an actual conversation with them.
Case in point: I’m 15. At work. A new employee is spotted across the room. Not any ordinary employee. This one is of the male variety; tall with jet black hair, sky blue eyes, built, and literally just walked out of GQ magazine. Yes, literally. Ok, maybe my memory is a little fuzzy because if I’m 15, he’s probably the same age or a year or two older at the most, so maybe he just walked out of Teen Bop magazine (is that still around?)
Anyway, I said to myself, “Holy hell, I have got to go talk to this boy.” I go to introduce myself and to this day, I have no idea what he said, or what I said, or what his name is, but it didn’t take long to realize there was no connection. I’m sure he’s a great guy, just no connection.
What do you think? Can there be a real connection before conversation?
