A Magnetic Force

So...I used to have this job...There was this one guy who used to come in there from time to time. I have no idea what it was about him...I had never met him before, knew nothing about him...he was just some random guy, another customer. Yet, every time I saw him I felt like there was a force pulling me to him. I was rather ashamed of it to be honest because I was already seeing the guy who is now my husband. I could barely even talk to him because I felt that connection...it was so strong it was as if I should have been able to see it! It made the air seem thicker, time slow down, and it took all I had to NOT walk towards him. I felt as if I could just float towards him, pulled by the force against my own will. Eventually I started noticing a girl, apparently his girlfriend, who was with him from time to time...which only made me feel even weirder about this strange force I was experiencing. I remember one day, I was waiting on a friend of his while he stood next to him...all of a sudden he randomly asked me my name, and I nearly fell apart with nerves. It was like I was a shy, awkward little schoolgirl all over again. I managed to blurt out my name, and then I literally just made an abrupt exit. lol. It's kind of embarrassing to look back on. I had to get away from him though. The connection was so intense and I blushed 10 shades of red when he asked my name....everyone I worked with knew my soon to be husband and I didn't want them getting any ideas or saying anything to him. I have no idea why that guy asked my name....he probably just wanted to know the name of the weird girl who was always staring at him or something. God I hope I didn't stare at him! I tried my best to act completely oblivious every time. I wonder what it was about him that literally pulled me towards him like a magnet though?

I can totally relate to this. I have just met someone who pulled me in with a couple of words. I was overwhelmed, felt I couldn't breathe without being near him. Everywhere I went, he seemed to be nearby and we kept looking at each other. He even stopped to wave at me when he was leaving. Like you, I wanted to run over and hold him. I just wanted to hold him and never let go. I too am married and would never go seeking this with another man. But, it has found me. Powerfully so. I wake up thinking about him and go to sleep thinking about him. I don't want it to stop.
