Sometimes when you meet someone, you find one of the following:
- Similar hobby or interest (e.g. food truck hunting, cycling, same music band)
- Mutual friend which often leads to let’s all make a reason to hang out or see you at the next event of the mutual friend
- An event that both of you attended
- Some strange instant connection that indescribable—from any gender, not necessarily romantic in any way; but it’s never awkward, it feels right
It’s the last one that is rare. Sure the first few are about similarities, but it’s the last one that…it’s instant that it’s overlap in so many ways. It’s so mutual. And afterwards, you are in a trance—we are soulmates.
