9 signs you have a deep connection with someone you barely know

Have you ever met someone that made you wonder if you’ve known them 20 seconds, or 20 years, as Taylor Swift would put it?

As if you don’t have to ask to have your needs met, and you don’t have to explain to be understood.

If you want to know, read more below as we explore the 9 signs that show you might have a deep connection with someone, even if you barely know them.

2) You feel comfortable around them

You’re not afraid to share your darkest secrets, your bitter past, or your greatest fears because you knows they will listen without judgment-and they will understand.

3) They make you feel understood

It’s like you don’t feel the need to decode or translate your thoughts before sharing them because they simply understand.

If someone makes you feel that way, that’s a very obvious sign that you have a deep connection with them, even if you barely know them.

4) Everything feels easier with them

Life would be so much easier if we took things as they are, but that’s quite impossible, don’t you think?

When you’re with them, it’s easier to decide what to do when you’re free, what to have for dinner, where to go when you feel like exploring…

And what’s more is that you don’t even have to do the mental gymnastics of having to decide when you’re considering other people’s opinions, too!

They just have a way of making you feel like life is so easy; and perhaps part of it is because you have a lot in common.

5) You have a lot in common, sometimes even unexpectedly

You know that feeling when you can’t find the right word to say and someone somehow manages to find it?

It’s like everything suddenly makes sense, and you feel a sense of relief because it means you don’t have to keep thinking hard anymore-no more brain cells to burn, if you may!

Regardless of how long you’ve known each other, you constantly discover shared interests, values, and experiences, and sometimes in the most unexpected ways.

It’s cheesy, but it’s almost like all the universe conspired to bring you this person, and you really can’t be more thankful to finally find a missing piece of yourself that you’ve been looking for your whole life.

6) You’ve both had similar experiences

It makes you understand each other better and easier than other people do, because no one in your life has ever went through the same thing-except for each other.

7) You see parts of yourself in them

And meeting someone whom we see parts of us in makes us feel a sense of relief, because that means we don’t have to keep looking for that sense of understanding anymore.

That’s why you feel a deep connection with someone you barely know-because you’ve been looking for them your whole life, and they understand you like no one else can.

8) They can anticipate your Colombianske jenter datingside needs and emotions

That’s why I fall a little more in love with my friends when they give me something I need without me having to ask.

And if you feel the same about a person you’ve just met, that’s a sign that you have a deep connection with them, even if you barely know each other.

It’s almost like a sixth sense-and nothing feels better than knowing someone in your life understands what you need without you having to ask for it.

9) They make you love yourself a little more

The most important-and perhaps the most obvious-sign that you have a deep connection with someone you barely know is if they make you love yourself a little more every time you’re with them.

You don’t see your flaws as imperfections, because they make you feel special in all the things that make you different.

And even if you’ve just met, the connection will surely last a lifetime if they help you love yourself a little more every day.

They make us feel a deep sense of belongingness, a kind of comfort that makes us feel at home wherever as long as we’re with them.
