What is an emotional attraction?
Have you ever noticed how you instantly connect with some people? It’s as if you know them from some other dimension or maybe a dream (perhaps an earlier life).
Whatever the real case may be, you feel a bond, unlike any other bond you have made before and the chemistry is undeniably strong. This is what you can call ‘emotional attraction’.
Why is emotional attraction so important?
You will come across several people (especially women) stressing upon how important it is for them to have an emotional attraction in a relationship. This is because emotional attraction can help you form relationships that will potentially last longer than those without it.
In romantic relationships, physical attraction can diminish with time and that is why relationships that are based solely on physical attraction may not always bring you the joy you’re looking for.
However, once coupled with emotional attraction, these relationships can take you to new levels of ecstasy.
This is precisely why you will find women all over the world going crazy over finding a man they have an emotional connection with.
Experiencing emotional attraction is like connecting on a whole new level. Unlike physical attraction (which may only be one-sided), the emotional attraction is usually equally strong at both ends in a relationship.
When this is the case, people develop a deep sense of care for each other. Such an intense emotion will lead you to have meaningful conversations as well as comfortable silences.
How to tell if you are emotionally attracted to someone?
You can surely tell when you’re attracted to someone. Whether or not it’s only physical, emotional or both is a different argument all together.
To determine what it is that you are feeling, here is a list of questions you need to ask yourself:
- Do you find yourself caring deeply for the person you are attracted to?
- Do you feel like you have known them for a long time? (even if you’ve only recently met them)
- Do you lose track of time while talking to them?
- Do you feel at ease when they are around?
- Can you talk to them about almost anything and everything?
If the answer to these questions is ‘yes’, then there is a very high chance that you are, in fact, emotionally attracted to the person in mind.
Does emotional attraction always lead to romance?
If you are lucky enough to be romantically involved with a person who is emotionally attracted to you, then that’s great!
Romantic relationships based on physical and emotional attraction prove to be the strongest and most magical ones.
However, not everyone is fortunate enough to get both forms of attractions in such relationships and you’ll find many people who try to make it work despite what they’ve got.
It is no compulsion to be romantically interested in the person you are emotionally attracted to. Emotional attraction is a bond that your soul makes with the soul of another person.
Often, you’ll see friends who claim to be soul mates. In such cases, the emotional connection that the friends have is largely based on the emotional attraction they feel for each other.
Friends who connect on this level, are always there for each other. They can go on talking to one another for hours without pause and they may even share similar thoughts and interests.
You might find them completing each other’s sentences and laughing at the same jokes. It is as though they know exactly what is going on in the other person’s mind.
It is because of this strong sense of attachment, that people who’ve experienced emotional attraction value it so seriously.
