I met him for the first time two weeks ago at a lunch my friend organized. We chatted for about 5 minutes. Still I didn't think anything of it.
Later that evening a big group of us went to a bar. I was sitting at one end of the bar chatting with a group of friends. He was sitting across the bar, but facing me. My back was to him. I knew he was sitting there, and for some reason I had a sudden urge to look at him and check if he is wearing a wedding ring. I don't know why I thought to do that when I never thought he was attractive. But I did. And as I was searching for a wedding (that I did not find) he caught me staring at him. We locked eyes for maybe 3 to 5 seconds, then he looked away, and I looked away. I didn't look back, so I don't know if he looked at me again. He left early that night and I haven't seen him since.
Since then I feel REALLY attracted to him. It's been two weeks and I think of him all the time. I looked him up on facebook and found out he has been divorced for 3 years. I don't want to approach him because he is my friend's cousin and I think he is off limits.
I'm just trying to understand how I all of a sudden became so attracted to him to the point that I can't stop thinking about him?
I am talking to 2 other guys (not serious) but I feel like I'm not interested in either of them. Why did I all of a sudden feel this strong attraction and connection to Robert?
