catch feelings (for someone)
To develop a strong romantic attraction to someone and see them as a possible partner, especially when it happens unexpectedly, as of people in a casual or purely sexual relationship. A: "We're just hooking up. No one here is catching feelings, don't you worry." B: "Uh-huh. Right." Oh, I caught feelings for you the first time you sat across from me in that Victorian lit class. Your hair was wet from the rain, and I'd never seen anyone more beautiful in my life.
