I just told my life's story to someone I've known for only two days, but with whom we shared an instant, platonic connection.
I know that we in this sentence "should" be I, that this phrasing is correct if the group I belong to collectively felt a connection to her. However, I want to take a little poetic license in order to emphasize that the sharing was two-way.
Yes, sharing already is two-way, but I feel that in the "correct" sentence, using I shared, feels mono-directional; to me it feels like saying that I feel this connection to her, but that it may not be shared--or at least not necessarily as strongly felt--by her.
Is there a better way to word my phrase (or sentence)--that may or may not bend the rules--that emphasizes the bi-directionality of the connection but which is less awkward than "with whom we shared"?
