Love? Or Lust…

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?
