I think, for me, when that happens, it's just a natural attraction that is pretty much a visceral, physical response, but one that for any number of reasons I do not wish to follow up on. We're human beings, we feel attractions. Sometimes it's a pull toward someone we pass in the street, and we don't know why. It could be a feeling that turns into a crush, or a friendship, but doesn't always have to turn into anything. For practical purposes, we shouldn't always act upon this very natural response we feel within ourselves for another. It's just kinda nice to enjoy it when it happens.
