Spiritual attraction is a form of attraction based on valuing a particular individual's opinions, emotional and mental reliance, valuing their existence more than others (non-obsessively), desiring partnership or guide-like relationships, spiritual bonding, doing things together exclusively, friendship, possible familial bonds, possible physical affection, performing spiritual practices together, fascination, interest in their persona. It is based on the belief or feeling that such a relationship is “destiny,” or that the object of such attraction once had a relationship with the subject in a “past life” of sorts. In some cases, it can be used as a subset of social attraction- desiring a mentor-student-type relationship with someone based on their strong spirituality. A spirtual attraction crush can be called a spirit or soul.
The spiritual attraction flag was created by Tumblr user mourningmogaicrew on July 9th, 2021. The flag was based off the colors gold and purple, and the concept of pairs, which are all commonly associated with spiritual attraction.
