underused colloquialism of the week: met on a bridge

it's not really a colloquialism, if no one really says it, but its definition is a concept in need of a colloquialism.

it's about when you've met someone in an exciting (or dangerous) circumstance but you misinterpret your physical excitement as romantic attraction or 'chemistry'. meeting on a bridge was the exciting circumstance used when they were studying this phenomenon, though they found increased caffeine would also increase the affect.

but met on a bridge just sounds like it means that.

"i thought he was pretty cute, but we totally met on a bridge, so who knows?"
