I don't necessarily mean in a romantic way more like meeting your favorite musician or comedian or something like that, just really anyone you have always wanted to get connected with. I was thinking of the phrase "special someone" but I am looking for something that might not have to do with anything romantically. Any help or insights would be greatly appreciated. thank you.
I don't know of any word or phrase other than "meet your heroes".
And it's usually prefaced with "Never". And there's a good reason. The world is full of stories about people who met their heroes, and were disappointed.
