Hello everyone! Our guest blogger today is Molly, who is a returning MIA guest blogger. Check out what she has to say about those inexplicable “connections from a distance”
You meet someone. You instantly connect. I’m talking a connection that takes you aback. It can’t even be classified as a lust or an in love at first sight. It’s simply a familiarity and an immediately accepted love for the other individual. You realize you KNOW this person without ever having known or ever having met them previously.
For some this sounds a bit out there but, for others, you know the exact feeling I am describing. You are immediately in a deep connection with this someone. Sex doesn’t play a role in your connectivity current, although, attraction certainly does. It’s deeper than that. You are thrilled to have even found this person at all.
Yet, things begin to drift. It’s almost an unspoken understanding between the two of you. Perhaps, this person doesn’t live in your city or you in theirs. Or, one or both of you travel for work.
Regardless, you are still in each other’s lives to check in, talk to, or even spend time with when it’s possible but you are very clearly living your own lives. And, no matter this divide you both still feel very connected to each other. You care for the person, you want updates from their world, you still love them in a special way and all those feelings are reciprocated. But it’s all from afar.
You know this person could be your other if only you attempted it. But you don’t. Nor do they. Why is this? Why doesn’t one party or both push for more? Laziness? Fear of the magnitude of it all?
Has anything like this ever happened to you? And, if so, what was/is your reasoning for not pushing for more? Did/do you ever think about it? Or did/do you prefer not to think about it and just let the love continue on it’s intended yet unguided path…from a distance?
