I suspect this to do with weak ..
- Sometimes a person will hold eye contact with me to show they're interested & I briefly see their eyes but vaguely their face for the first time, and the look away. If I like them I'll start thinking about approaching them (developing a bit of a mental crush in that time) but when I see them again face-to-face they'll often look completely different than what I had imagined in my head & I get somewhat disorientated and upset. < this has happened about 3 times already. I even convinced myself I was seeing twins at one point, and at another time thought one person was different coworkers at the same workplace because of some day-to-day variance in outfit/ hairstyle.
- I bump into people on the street and at times I seriously can't figure out if they're a certain person I already know or a stranger I've never met before.
^ Is this the kind of thing an IEI might experience? Does anyone have an explanation for this? or am i just NTR strange lol
