We’ve become so used to communicating digitally that it’s hard to develop deeper connections offline. So, how can you tell whether or not you have a true connection with someone? Here, we’ll look at some of the main signs of a meaningful connection to another person that goes beyond being a mere acquaintance.
You Feel Happier and Energized Around Them
When you have a true connection with someone, it makes you feel happier and more energized when you are in their presence. You’ll both give off positive energy as you enjoy each other’s company.
You don’t even need to do anything exciting with them to feel happier. Simply hanging out, talking, and laughing together is enough to make you both feel energized.
You are Fully in the Moment
One of the key signs that you have a deeper connection with someone is that when you’re with them, you’re fully in the present. That is, you don’t dwell on the past or worry about the future. Instead, you fully enjoy the moment and the time you’re spending together.
It’s Easy to Open Up to Them
When you have a deep connection with someone, you’ll find it easy to open up to them. You won’t worry about what you’re saying or that you’re revealing too much. This is because you trust them, and they provide a good level of support. Those with a real connection will openly talk about how they feel and what’s going on in their lives.
Likewise, they’ll also tell you things they don’t tell anyone else. A deep connection works both ways, enabling you both to feel open and secure in each other’s company.
There’s a Level of Trust There
The reason you can open up and can be yourself with someone you have a deep connection with is due to trust. There is a level of trust in your relationship which enables you to talk freely.
Real trust can be difficult to find so if you do find it, it’s truly a sign of a much deeper connection.
Signs You Don’t Have a True Connection
So, now we’ve looked at some of the signs of a deeper connection with someone, what signs show you don’t have that kind of relationship?
You’ll typically find there are a lot of awkward silences with someone you don’t have a deep connection to. You’ll largely focus on small talk and won’t discuss the things in life that really matter to you. You may even feel drained after being around them, and you’ll think before you speak to ensure you don’t say the wrong things.
The above are just some of the signs that can help you discern whether or not you have a deeper connection with someone. More than anything, you’ll tend to instinctively feel a stronger connection when you’re around someone you connect with.
Their energy will gel with yours and you’ll feel instantly happier when they’re around. You will also look forward to their company with positive expectation, rather than wishing you could spend time elsewhere.
