Why is hydrogen bonding so strong? What is unique about the force that attributes to its strength?

Hydrogen bonding is a strong intermolecular forces because it occurs between the hydrogen atom of one molecule and another atom of another molecule that has a high electronegativity value.

Hydrogen bonding is unique because it relies on a partially positively charged hydrogen atom that is attached to an electronegative atom bonding to another electronegative atom.
The more electronegative the atom is, the stronger the Hydrogen bond will be. It's because of these qualities that water has such unique properties. Hydrogen bonding also holds the bases together in DNA.
