Why do I feel a 'deep connection' with him when i have not met him?
We went to the same school as kids then moved to different countries and lost touch. Met again after more than a decade on a social networking site 2 months ago. Turns out we both were trying to find each other online even though we had not spoken in a while. I don't know why I feel some sort of a connection with him even though its been ages since we met in person or even talked on the phone. I can totally be myself (which I normally am not around most people) and tell him anything without thinking twice. And I feel like he gets me too. Anyway, recently he told me he felt the same thing too. I'd probably be happy to hear this in a different time and setting but I'm actually confused because 1) we've not met 2) we haven't even heard each other and 3) he has not seen me yet. I can't reveal my pictures to him because of religious reasons and he totally understood that and has never pressed me for it either. I've always been of the opinion that you can only fall in love with a person's image online. I really don't know where all this is headed and I'm too confused to think straight. I don't know why I feel so drawn towards him (not in a lustful way) but I really worry and care about him. When I pray, he automatically comes to mind (something which has never happened with anyone before) and I pray for his well being and happiness. I feel like a totally different person ever since we've been in touch. I like doing things I didn't like before because I know he likes them. And I don't FORCE myself to do them, it just comes naturally. Everything around me reminds me of a conversation we had. When something happens, I think about sharing it with him. Am I going crazy? I don't know what's going on! I think I probably like him but then I realize all of this is online so I don't know if there could be a 'we' here.
