"We sometimes encounter people, even perfect strangers, who begin to interest us at first sight, somehow suddenly, all at once, before a word has been spoken."

My thing is crowds. Not standing in line or anything like that but just a crowded restaurant or park makes me feel comfortable. I couldn't figure out what the appeal of so many strangers was until it came to me yesterday. It's the anonymity of a crowd. People are there, but not asking a million of personal questions.
In a related note, a stranger on the train in NY showed me a ziploc baggie of his son's teeth that he carried around in a harmonica case.
