    Only a fragment left? What a shame. Well, in any case, I would be curious to know if others have had an experience the subject reminds me of.

    Very rarely, maybe only twice, I've looked an attractive girl in the eyes and they were looking me in the eyes too. I feel kind of a rush from it because it's very intense, but neither of our expressions change. It's just kind of like a wave washing over me. Intense enough, actually, that in both cases, I was the first to look away. But having looked away, I felt a bit like I had to get away. It's a very connective experience because in that moment you feel penetrated or pierced, like you're being seen straight through.

    But, it's a highly pleasant experience. I would have it again any time, but instead of freezing, I would smile. The second time I remember the experience, it was with someone I didn't know I liked until later. This girl was actually very much like me, but I didn't comprehend that. I only thought she was strange and avoided her. But you know, avoidance is my first response to people I'm fond of. It's hard to distinguish avoidance from disinterest sometimes, but when you feel something powerfully connective like this, it has a way of persuading you about how you really feel.

    It's a remarkable experience that says for both at once, "the two of us are alike." Has anyone here had the wave-wash-over-you-eye-contact experience? It's interesting to me.

    I'm interested to know how you found it pleasant?

    I have had it happen with one person, who by the way is nothing like me - an ESTJ. I avoid him like the plague.

    Hmm. Maybe it comes in degrees? I experienced it kind of like a lock. I felt captivated. "Don't look away!" ... but it's intense enough in a fraction of a second that I did so anyway. I was scared! It kind of shook me up although I pretended that nothing had happened. I was kind of embarrassing! Like I'd revealed myself.

    Pleasant perhaps in retrospect. It's kind of in the same vein as the experiences related to starting a new relationship. Approaching a girl can be terrifying! ... but yet later even that feeling of terror makes you feel just so very alive. The whole experience takes on a glossy finish. (It's what keeps even us shyer types looking for relationships. )

    There might be more to likeness than overt personality ... do you avoid this person because you would feel awkward before him or because you find him distasteful?

    Trust your initial reaction.

    If you're wrong to be freaked out, in time the situation will make itself more clear.
