Carson McCullers (via desalpes)
When I am feeling love/lust/like for someone, it’s definitely a nostalgia feeling.
Like, ‘oh yeah, this is what it’s all about.’
That feeling of an expansive-wanting-to-know someone feels so familiar, yet it’s a familiarity with what’s unfamiliar. I dunno if this makes sense…
I’m always happy to get to know someone, but there is a particular sparky feeling sometimes with certain people where getting to know them is more like, ‘I want to remember what I’ve forgotten about you, because we knew each other once before, sometime & somewhere.’
This makes so much sense…I felt it a few times with special people who continue to be in my life in some way. With each, there was an instant sense of comfort around that person, and yet I want to ask them everything and anything about themselves, as if I’m reminding myself of something.
