Yes and yes. And ... maybe? The chemistry I'm alluding to here isn't sizzling. It's warm, but not sizzling. It's more like an awareness of the other person's physical presence. I'm struggling for words, here. It's as if the person for whom I feel ... that thing ... is in sharp black and white contrast, in a room full of people in sepia tone. And it's not sexual, yet. I don't know what it is. It's hard to describe, and I feel it instantly. And, btw, I don't trust the sizzling stuff either. Do rather enjoy it, though, IIRC. :wink: For me, the chemistry that comes with deep and lasting friendships can take a long time -- years even -- to evolve.
