Is a hydrogen bond covalent?

Hydrogen bonds and covalent bonds are two completely different things. Covalent bonds share an electron, while hydrogen bonds (just for water molecules) act like magnets- the Oxygen atom has a slight negative charge and it "attracts" the Hydrogen atoms, which have a slight positive charge.
