a definition of "Chemistry"

I sometimes experience a state of mine where being with a person, or doing a particular thing with a person, feels magickally smooth and easy, like we have an instant, universe-given shared context without having put the work into creating it. It feels like getting away with something.

These are the people you can be comfortably silent with from day one. I completely agree that it's a gift to find them ("gift" = my translation of "getting away w/ something"), because such ease just doesn't happen very often. Certainly not to nervous, awkward sorts. I usually end up falling in love with people I connect to like this--cannot tell if this is wise.

BTW, I enjoy the epigrammatic style of your writing. Brevity is the soul of wit and all. Nothing wasted. That kind of thing. Or maybe you're just in a hurry? *g*

To me it kind of is love to feel that way about someone. The nice thing about falling in love under those circumstances for me is that it's not the handwringing kind of love, it's the kind of love where I feel perfect and whole every moment I'm with the person.

Thanks for the praise of my LJ writing. My writing tends toward brevity anyway but on LJ that gets exaggerated because I copy LJ-appropriate bits out of other things I write.

Can't say about that really. I don't get non-handwringing attraction that often. I certainly would love to have a romantic experience where I wasn't second-guessing myself, foot dragging or telling myself "You eeeedeeyot". I guess it would take someone who made me say "I might get hurt, I might be wrong, but it looks good from here, and even if it ends badly, I am making my mind up not to regret this."
