    Have you ever felt attracted to someone purely based on their writing?

    Do you feel close to someone just by reading the way they write and express themselves and feel attracted to them? ;-)

    YES! I have never believed that I will say this - but YES...

    Oh yes.  It happens.  Especially these days with technology.  In the early days of
    AOL people were falling in love and attraction all over the place without ever meeting the object of their attraction face-to-face.

    When someone writes, they have time to review, edit and change. In the real World, it only takes a second to utter something hurtful and it lasts forever-there is no deleting, editing or correcting, not even with an apology.

      In those days, I met a woman online, progressed to phone calls and met a few months later. It was quite a romance for over a year, but we were just too different in many ways for it to last.

    Yes definitely so Docmo

    A picture paints a thousand words! But, not in this case.

    This is how I met my previous girlfriend, on facebook, there was only one photo shot of this stranger & that wasn't much to go by but, she crept up & entered my domain accosting my wall post & thus, we became entangled within a roller coaster of witty banter with penned intentions so magical kept us both up most of the nights & tell you the truth, the way she expressed her words, really inspired me towards her like a mouse to cheese so attracted I became invigorated she was like no one else I ever met, what a clever lady I thought, got to meet her, thus I manifested, she rhymed so well to my versus & communication was amazing to say the least needless to say, we eventually met up after 3 weeks & physically not long afterwards, the sparks they did fly lol.

    I became attracted to this lady before I met her in person, then, I was attracted to her physically once we met.

    Pity she never trusted my exclusivity to her in our time together.

    Regards Dale

    Yes. I think there are times when a person's inner self is so expressed in their writing, or when I connect so much to the subject matter and how they convey it, that I can't help but feel a connection with them. There is something about writing that opens up the soul unlike anything else.

    Well attracted as far as I'll follow and look out for their newest,but to want to actually be with them just from their writitngs ...No.

    I've made quite afew friends,followers here on HP but to date no one that has swept me off my feet like that.

    yes.   Quite a few times.  I just presume  is because a true writer cannot help but have some of his personaity shine through hi work.

    Yes. Sometimes it seems like someone is looking into my soul and I feel a connection. However, I know that I'm actually projecting my desires onto the author who may or may not feel as s/he states.

    If the words are potent and the images bring forth sensuality, not only is it a perfectly lovely attraction- provided it's a real respect for the author, but it proves that person did their role as an artist well: open a window of possibility.

    Indubitably.  I cannot think of a more sincere response so I'll leave it at that.

    I definitely have felt attracted to someone purely based on their writing, and it could be either gender as physical has nothing to do with it for me. Yet if it happens to be a lady and she is also very physically attractive then I just consider that a bonus yet no guarantees that we will ever be a match or for that matter ever meet. I am attracted to a number of fantastic female scribes and looks have nothing to do with how I feel about their extremely talented gifts. I am simply happy to be able to gain their respect as a fellow poet and enjoy their work as they may mine.

      I also feel the same Vincent, the same.

    Yes, I have been attracted to someone because of their writing.  I have read things by others and found myself wanting to know more about the person behind the words.  I have never fallen in love with someone based on what they write, that takes a lot more, but definately caught my interest.

    This was one of the many reasons I had to step away from tumblr.  It is far too easy for me to fall for girls who write well AND like Doctor Who.

    it's definitely possible. I've been in awe several times that a person just purely based on how they expressed themselves in words (i.e. writing). perhaps sometimes it has to do with how I process their letters in my head. There'll always be a little inner voice speaking out each and every word physically in my head and it sort of feels like they are speaking to me directly rather than through something as passive as words on paper.

      very true- it is always a sign of good writing when it speaks to the reader personally.

    Yes--  I  read Jonathon Carrol's books from the beginning, and loved his voice.  I wrote and had a few answers from him in person...

    Still love some of his books, but not interested in talking to him anymore.
