17 surprising reasons you feel like you have a strong connection with someone (and what to do next!)

Have you ever felt like you’ve known someone for a long time, even though you just met them?

Why is it that we instantly vibe with certain people and not others?

If you’re curious, read on to find out some of the most surprising reasons you feel like you have a strong connection with someone.

And, what to do next!

Let’s jump straight in.

1) You’ve always been able to predict what they’re going to say

The first reason you feel like you have a strong connection with someone is because of the familiarity that comes from knowing what they’re going to say before they even open their mouth.

Sometimes, it just seems as if another person can read your mind and know exactly how you’ll react in any given circumstance.

This feeling of understanding each other so well isn’t due to telepathy or thought-reading; this closeness arises out of long periods spent together either face-to-face, on the phone, conversing through text messages or email threads—it all boils down to spending more time communicating with one another than anyone else does.

It can sometimes feel quite freaky knowing that you feel like they’re reading your mind.

You may not even be consciously aware of this ability at first, but over time, the two of you will get so familiar with each other that you’ll start to pick up on each other’s nonverbal cues.

So much so that sometimes you’ll think they’re reading your mind! This bond will definitely stand you in good stead because you will be able to communicate with each other non-verbally.

2) You can tell how they feel just by looking at them (and vice versa)

Have you ever felt someone’s feelings?

It sounds nuts but it’s a real thing.

The second reason you feel like you have a strong connection with someone is that you can tell how they’re feeling by just looking at them!

This is because we can pick up on the emotions of others by just looking at them. This “sixth sense” is called empathy.

Think about it: Our eyes are designed to show us what someone else’s eyes mean, and this ability helps us to understand other people’s feelings, thoughts, and intentions.

The ability for one person’s eyes to show another person their innermost thoughts is not just an abstract concept. It has a profound effect on the way we see and interact with each other.

When we’re deeply connected to another person our own body language gives us clues that help us decipher how someone might be feeling without ever having spoken a word.

In fact, research shows that we can even pick up on subtle changes in someone’s facial expressions – such as a smile or frown – within milliseconds (1/1000th of a second)!

3) A gifted advisor confirms it

The signs above and below will give you a good idea about why you feel so strongly connected to another person.

But a surefire way to know for sure is to speak with a gifted advisor.

They can answer questions like if you were friends in a previous life, whether or not your relationship will last and what you didn’t know you knew!

The problem is finding someone you can trust.

That’s why I recommend Psychic Source. When I signed up for a reading, they provided me with a unique insight into where my life was going, including who I am meant to be with.

Having tried several online advisors, I think they’re the most caring, compassionate, and helpful network of gifted advisors out there.

Not only will a genuine advisor tell you why you have this strong connection but they can reveal all your love possibilities.

4) You know their favorite things and they know yours

Another reason you feel like you resonate strongly with one another is that you both know each other’s likes and dislikes.

This is because we have a natural tendency to be attracted to people who are similar to us.

It’s as if there’s a logic that attracts people into our lives that share similar interests, hobbies, values, and personality traits.

This is why we tend to gravitate towards people who are similar to us because we’re drawn to them on a deeper level than just superficial similarities.

We feel like they have the same innermost thoughts as us and can relate with us on an emotional level. This is why you know what their favorite food is and what kind of music they like—they know your favorite things too!

5) You can predict how they’ll react in any given situation (and vice versa)

It’s that little thing called intuition.

We possess an innate ability to intuitively know what someone else will do in any given situation and when we’re deeply connected to them it happens that we “know” before they do!

It’s the ability to perceive something without having any conscious knowledge of it.

Intuition is not just some random feeling or hunch that pops into your head—it’s a real, tangible skill that helps us make decisions and take actions in real-time.

Scientists have been studying intuition for many years, and have found that people who are highly intuitive actually possess a highly developed capacity for pattern recognition.

They are able to see similarities between things without consciously noticing them. They can predict what people will do next based on subtle differences in their behavior.

So if you are lucky enough to share this with another person, use it to your advantage!

6) You have similar life goals or ambitions

Another reason why you feel like you have a strong connection with someone is that you have similar life goals or ambitions!

You both have the same goals and aspirations: to be happy, make a difference in the world, and live life to the fullest.

You both have the same goals and aspirations: to be happy, make a difference in the world, and live life to the fullest. You see eye-to-eye on so many things that it is easy for you two to work together.

Your different backgrounds bring balance into your relationship by providing new perspectives and insights as well as fresh ideas that would not otherwise exist if there were only one of you involved with this specific project or business endeavor.

When this is the case, you two should use your combined strengths and motivate each other to do even better.

Who knows, you might have the capability to change the world!

7) There’s an energy between you… It can’t be faked!

Call it chemistry, fireworks, or twinning.

When we’re deeply connected with someone there’s a special kind of energy between us that can’t be faked.

We feel it when we’re around one another and when we’re not there’s an emptiness that’s hard to explain.

We don’t always understand what it is about this “energy” that makes us feel connected to another person, but we know when we’re in the presence of someone who has it and when we don’t.

The energy can be as subtle as a feeling we get in our stomach or as strong as a deep feeling of knowing what the other person is going to do next.

Sometimes it can be a combination of both.

When you know you’re connected with another human being there’s a special kind of energy between you two that cannot be faked and cannot be explained by anything else but the fact that you are deeply connected with one another!

But if you want more clarity on this, I’d suggest speaking to a gifted advisor at Psychic Source.

I mentioned them earlier. They have helped me out in the past and I’ve always found them honest and compassionate in their readings.

So instead of trying to solve all your love problems on your own, speak to an advisor who’ll give you the answers you’re looking for.

8) You can instantly feel when something bad happens to them

When you have a strong connection with someone it is not uncommon to feel when something bad happens to them. It’s a type of sixth sense almost.

You can feel when something bad might happen to them in a way that you cannot explain.

It’s like when you see someone who is sad, or even if they are in pain. You know they are feeling a certain way, even without them saying anything.

You can tell by the way they look and act.

So, if this is the case, be sure that you pick up the phone and let them know your concerns. Chances are, you’re connecting and at the right time and they are in need of your help.

9) You share the same sense of humor

The ability to laugh and find humor in life is something that can bring people together.

It’s another surprising reason why you have a strong connection with someone.


Humor is contagious. When you see someone who laughs a lot, and you laugh along with them, then you are likely to start laughing too!

Humor also makes us feel good and laughing often releases endorphins that help us become more positive and happy overall.

Also, when you laugh along with someone, it makes them feel good too. It’s kind of like a form of self-care.

If you’re lucky enough to have a special bond with someone, enjoy every moment of it and laugh until your bellies ache!

10) You have the same values and beliefs

If you spend time around someone who has similar values and beliefs to yours, then you will begin to think of them as being similar to you too – even if they do not share the same views!

For instance, if you are a very religious person who is deeply passionate about helping others and making the world a better place for everyone, then you might start to think that someone who shares these views is also similar to you – even if they don’t share your views in every way!

You might find yourself automatically associating the two of them together in your mind as being “like-minded”.

11) You can relate on an emotional level with each other

Developing empathy for others is a key attribute of being human.

The ability to relate on an emotional level with each other is yet another reason why you might feel a strong connection with someone, which can be explained by the mirror neurons in our brains that are activated when we see someone else experiencing emotion.

When one person sees or hears about what would typically trigger an emotion – such as happiness, sadness, anger, etc., and they have experienced those feelings before themselves- then their brain will automatically react accordingly since it remembers how it felt like to experience that feeling too.

12) You are on the same wavelength as each other

The ability to be on the same wavelength as each other is yet another reason why you might feel a strong connection with someone.

Being on the same wavelength is not limited to feeling a strong connection with someone.

It can also mean being able to understand or anticipate each other’s thoughts and feelings, share interests, and be in tune with what one person wants from another.

You may feel like you’re always synchronizing your movements and words accordingly when conversing with them — whatever it takes for both of you to achieve this sense of “oneness.”

13) You have shared similar experiences

The ability to have shared similar experiences is yet another reason why you might feel a strong connection with someone.

That is how you might be able to say that someone ‘gets’ or understands your situation. You can feel a sense of validation, which may not only make the person who has experienced something similar more sympathetic towards those with whom they share this experience but also increase their own self-worth and confidence in knowing they are not alone.

For instance, if you have experienced a disappointment that they have also experienced too, this can mean you will feel more connected to them than someone who hasn’t.

14) You’re not just thinking of yourself anymore (and vice versa)

You start thinking more about this person’s happiness as opposed to your own and that’s a great thing!

When we’re able to understand someone else’s feelings and perspectives, we’re actually able to understand ourselves better too.

This is because our thoughts are constantly influenced by the things that other people think and feel.

For example, if you spend time around someone who feels very stressed out and they happen to tell you about it, then the next time you feel stressed out, you might start thinking about how difficult their life must be too – even if you never thought of feeling like that before!

15) You see yourself in them

When people have a common interest, they have similar beliefs about the activity as well.

For example, if you like going to art museums and your partner likes going to art museums too, there’s a good chance you share the same beliefs about art museums.

In general, the more your viewpoints match up with someone else’s, the more likely you are to like them.

You probably already know that if you see yourself in someone, you’ll have a totally different reaction to them. However, this doesn’t only apply when you see yourself in pictures.

When someone looks like you, it may be hard for them to make eye contact with you.

But the reason they can’t look at you is that they want to avoid looking like they want to get close. (Think about this for a second – it’s hard for someone to make eye contact with you just because they don’t want you to mistake their intentions.)

One thing I know is that when you see yourself in a person, there’s an immediate connection between the two of you. This is because there’s no space between your thoughts. And if thoughts are connected, there is no space between you and them!

16) You feel like you’ve known them forever

This is definitely one of the most common reasons why we feel like we have a connection with someone.

Sometimes we just see someone or talk to them and feel like it’s something that has been missing in our lives.

When you meet someone who fits this description, then you know right away that you’re meant to be.

When this happens, it doesn’t matter where you met them or how long you’ve known them. It just feels like “nature taking its course.” You’ve just been looking for the right person and they’ve just been looking for you.

This feeling is so powerful that it can even make you feel like you’re meant to be with someone from the moment you meet them. It’s very similar to how we feel when we fall in love!

17) You recognize them

It’s hard to describe but it’s like you know who they are!

So how can you know that you’ve met “the one”, your true soulmate?

Let’s face it:

We often waste a lot of time and emotion on people we’re not suited for. Recognizing your soulmate isn’t always straightforward.

But what if there was a way to remove all the guesswork?

I’ve just stumbled upon a way to do this…  a professional psychic artist who can draw a sketch of what your soulmate looks like.

Even though I wasn’t sure at first, my friend convinced me to try it out a few weeks ago.

Now I know exactly what my soulmate looks like. The crazy thing is I’ve known them for years.

If you’re ready to find out what your soulmate looks like, get your own sketch drawn here.


It’s a great feeling when you resonate strongly with someone and how you approach the situation and what you do next largely depends on you.

Hopefully, the signs above have shed loads of light on why you feel so strongly connected.

But if there’s a part of you that still wants to know more, I recommend speaking to a genuine advisor.

And there’s one company that I always end up recommending, Psychic Source. Not only did they blow me away with their accurate reading, but they were also kind and understanding of my situation.

So if you’re tired of wondering about why you’re drawn to certain people, get in touch with a gifted advisor and take your future into your own hands. I did, and I’ve never looked back since.

Can a gifted advisor help you too?

If you want specific advice on your situation, it can be very helpful to speak to someone with special intuition.

I know this from personal experience…

A few months ago, I reached out to Psychic Source when I was going through a tough patch in my relationship. After being lost in my thoughts for so long, they gave me a unique insight into what my future holds, and the confidence to make the right decisions when it comes to love.

If you haven’t heard of Psychic Source before, it’s a site where gifted advisors help people through complicated and difficult life situations.

In just a few minutes you can connect with a highly intuitive psychic and get tailor-made advice for your situation.

I was blown away by how kind, empathetic, and genuinely helpful my psychic was.
