    Default Connection to or with

    What will be the difference in meaning using these two prepositions in the following context?

    They read the book you wrote recently. So although they never met you, they feel a special connection with (or to?) you.

    The construction of the sentence can be changed to sound natural; as:
    So although they had never met you, they felt a special connection with (or to?) you.

    Both the prepositions means the same and can be used to connect something or somebody to/with something. But if people connect for relationship, that is, someone feels liking for another and understand each other as in the present context, use connect with
