The emotional connection between you is powerful and deep, right from the get-go. You may not even be aware of it as such; you simply felt connected right away, even before you knew one another well. There is a sense that your souls recognize one another, that you're bonded on a spiritual level.
You find that you have a lot in common on a basic level -- your fundamental spiritual ideals are in tandem. You also find that you have plenty of wonderful discussions and heart-to-heart talks about your innermost feelings, hopes and dreams, but you have just as many moments of wonderful nonverbal communication. You, especially, are able to tune right in to your lover. You're highly sensitive to their moods, and you respect their feelings. You may finish their sentences or even intuit exactly how they're feeling even when they're not physically in the same space. Given time, falling in love is likely with this aspect in place! There is a sense of willing sacrifice between you -- you get so much out of the relationship that you want to give back by honoring your bond and sacrificing time and tenderness for the good of your lover. You probably view them in an idealized light, but who cares? The devotion between you is real, as is the sweetness.
