TCP must have a connection established befre it can send anything. In a TCP connection theres what we call a handskake. I'm in a bit of a hurry right now so let me give you a link.

TCP is a connection-oriented Protocol, it garantees that the end-station receives the data with various checks and balances, if not it gets resent. This is different in UDP as it is a connection-less protocol and can send data without first establishing a connection to the end-station.
Along with links that Cheyenne gave you, check this one as well.
Transmission Control Protocol
