For me at least- incredibly rare. I’ve felt it twice in my life. That instant of knowing something’s different, special and fiery. There has only been once when it was almost like the energy in the room changed. Neither of us could take our eyes off each other, the whole date was just spent in our own bubble. Every date since the connection only got more intense. That’s super rare for me. Usually it takes me awhile to really feel anything for someone.
Instant connections are not rare. Happens all the time. The ones that last for a lifetime, on the other hand, are incredibly rare. Especially nowadays... we can meet people all over the world at one's fingertips. However, we just forget about them the next moment and move onto another person. So,. maintaining that connection for a long long time is WAY more rare.
Very true. Thanks for sharing your point of view
Thanks for MHO :)
Yes, they are very rare! It's an incredible feeling though. There's just something so magical about realizing that you have found a piece of yourself in another person. Even more so, realizing that you want nurture and love that person with everything you have, and then seeing that they want the same for you.
That's so nice. Thanks for sharing
Have an opinion?
I think that depends on what you mean by an instant connection. With my current girlfriend, I felt right away that she seemed like someone I would like to get to know better and be friends with, so there was that connection immediately. I had no idea then that we'd end up in a romantic relationship though. We were friends for a while before realizing how much we liked being with each other and having the relationship become romantic. So that part wasn't instant.That's how it's been with most of my girlfriends over the years. I felt right away that I liked them, but wasn't sure at what level until I knew them for a while and realized I wanted a romantic relationship and not just a friendship.I usually can tell pretty quickly whether I like someone enough to want to spend time with them, but it almost always takes longer for me to feel a romantic connection so if you mean an instant romantic connection, then I guess I do feel that those are rare.
I wouldn't say so, and that can be both for romantic connections or friendships. One of my closest friends, I met her last year when she was brought to one of my social group evenings by a mutual friend. We got talking and it was as if we'd known each other for years, with how easy conversation flowed and how comfortable we were with each other.I'll admit in the context of the question, it's rare that I meet someone who I'm that comfortable with so soon but we've stayed close friends ever since, and I've known her for a lot less time than my other best friends.
Yeah I would think so. The only time I can think of making a instant connection with someone was when I was tired, exhausted, hungry, and homesick because I had been on a 9 hour flight, and then I had to get on another 1 hour flight to get home. Anyways, this random 21 yr old guy next to me just randomly started talking to me and I remember being surprised bc usually people don't make a effort to have a conversation with me, and we ended up talking the entire plane ride about random stuff.
That's sweet, thanks for sharing
Yes Considering.. Connection are part of communication.. And not everyone is as good at communicating with other humans.. Since, people often lack in vocabulary or practice with words, using words as they are tools to express themselves.. It's rare for an individual to find someone with same level of experience who shares same interest.. Or operate on same way of thinking..Also.. When when someone achieves a control over words.. Naturally books and other novels begins to taste more delicious than conversation with other humans..Hence.. Reduction in human interaction also act as a negative factor and reduce such chance
They are very rare l had a connection with a girl on GAG and l told her about it so she was posting stuff asking others on GAG about it and over 30 people said in there reply if you have got a guy like that you should keep him but l don't think she could take real true love on board as she had been hurt so bad by an Ex we spoke for 12 hours a day for a whole year then she went away to university l miss her so much
Yes its all true the girl told me how much she wanted me and trusted me so much as l am very honest and caring and pure loyal and so loving and l would never ever cheat and that l don't use any social media she even asked if she could come and live with me and l said yes you can as l am a single decent guy we are only 240 miles apart l was able to tell her everything about herself it was a very real connection my home is always open for this Girl and she knows that Thank you for all of your hearts l love them all god l am so fun loving and so Romantic
No, It's not rare, just not the common outcome. It's rare that the average person finds it tho. There are a large number of people you would have an instant connection if you talked to them. But how many new people are you talking to on a regular basis? If a lot, then you probably connect with people pretty regularly. If you barely talk to 5+ new people you probably think instant connection is a 1 in a million chance and you can't believe it's happened to you even once in your life.
I would say no quite the opposite I meet people and we hit it off right away but I also meet people and hate them and they hate me then we end up being friends out of that I even dated someone I hated and then after me and her hated each other again lol
Yes. I've only had one so far and it was with my doctor lol
😅 Wow, did you act on it?
No 😆 he's married. Hopefully I'll find someone else who's single
Damn hopefully 🤞
No I don't think they're THAT rare. But instant connections that turn into real, deep conections over time... quite rare.
They are very rare me and my girlfriend finish each others sentences all the time..
Awww that's cute asf
depends if the two people are emotionally open to each other, show positive body language, trust each other...and a whole lot of other factors.
definitely rarer than meeting people you don't like.
Yup, they were real easy during times in school, but once that passes and you enter the real world yeah real connection are a one in million to come by for some damn reason
Damn, that hit me straight as a bullet
They're not that rare but the odds for it to happen is like winning the lottery. All that you need is the right time and place with the right person who is in the mood to be emotionally involved
I ain't had a instant connection I've only had crushes which stopped at the age of 21 or 23 i haven't had a crush sense just lust for any girl who gives me attention lol
Honest people will have no problem making connections quickly
Very very rare form what I have come across thus far
I have had an instant connection before, I dont think they are rare, what is rare is keeping that connection going.
Yes very much so. They can happen but usually have have to hit on just the right topic in a conversation early on.
I've had 2 in my life. With my most recent ex and my best friend.
Very rare. That's why they're so meaningful, because you don't find them often.
I don't think they're rare, but it takes time to form a connection whether it's quick or in depth.
Yes that's very rare only happened to me once. Has it ever happened to you?
I feel are rare connections are only when first sight love!
When you're 16 they are.
You are honestly so annoying, don't comment on my shit if you have a problem about my age
You are honestly MORE annoying. Like a barking dog. Listen bimbo, you don't get to make the rules. If you don't want comments don't ask the question. The term 'tard' keeps coming up in my head. "Instant connection". What, like instant coffee? Dear god.
You're basically bullying me, you keep replying to my questions like this and then feel the need to start some sort of fight with me EVERY TIMEGot nothing better to do in your life than pick on young girls? Makes you feel better about yourself doesn't it? You could be mature and ignore my questions, as they never directly involve you what so EVER... but instead you choose to be nasty for no reason what so everby the way my question has had 55 people comment on it this far (including YOU), and in addition to that is has been selected as "Great"...Let me reiterate that I haven't done anything to you! But it sure if entertaining knowing now how much I must get under you skin for no reason 😊👍What a shame I won't be hearing from you again 😂 I win
Well, it can happen. About 1/4 the time in my life experiences.
Very rare I agree 😭😇
Absolutely! at least in my case.
For me yeah but for my mom no
Not really, i can get along with almost anyone
Yes. I feel like they are rare.
They are rare but not unheard of.
