I'm one of those empaths. I tend to soak up emotions of those around me and can instinctively know how people are feeling. I'm also good at figuring people out. At my school, there's this one girl I like. She seems pretty empathetic too (she's a Pisces). It's weird. Whenever we make eye contact, it's like I can't focus on anything except her. I can make eye contact at the surface and have no effect, but as soon as I try to look inside, I sort of get tunnel vision and feel a connection. It's almost telepathic. When we look each other in the eyes, emotions, thoughts, and energy are exchanged
One time, I had a flashback. I saw us in a large stone room. Looked pretty ancient. We were standing on a stone platform with light shining in from above us (sunlight I think). We were wearing white robes and I was holding her and looking into her eyes. I didn't get much about the situation, except I just knew that in that time, whenever and wherever it was, I loved her deeply. The flashback only lasted a fraction of a second, but it's like a memory. Almost like it was inserted into my head. My mind could have made this entire thing up, but I find it strange how it's lasted with me for this long and came to me in such a short flash.
When we talk, the energy around us feels strongly charged and interacts in a very powerful and dynamic way. After interacting with her, I can still feel her energy almost an hour later. I asked her out, and she politely declined. I haven't seen or talked to her since. Anyway, has anyone had a similar experience? We're both 17.
