the atoms of hydrogen have a single electron that inhabits a single shell. when excited it moves to a second shell. excite it much more and the electon leaves the shell atom completely (ionization). that shells is most stable when there are two electrons in it. 2 hydrogen can share a pair of electrons making them both stable, leaving the nucleuses with only one shell between them. that is different than the bonds of a solid vs gas or liquid.
if your going to discuss apples when the discussion is about banannas your likely to get caught by a slippery a' peel
