Allright, I admit it, my hometown is not particularly big. However, it is big enough to get lost in.
Once in a while though, odd coincidences happen that fall outside of statistical probability.
I had met a girl at some summer vacation homes she moved in next to me while I was on vacation. I had several good conversations with the person. I had asked her where she lived, she explained she lived in an appartment complex for young people in my hometown. That left me little clue as to where that actually was specificly. She also never gave me an address, well I did not need it so I did not ask about it. One evening when out walking after having returned from vacation, I walked past a house. I found myself remembering an afterparty 17 years ago in that house and replayed the events in my mind.
While thinking about that incident 17 years ago, I stare at the list of inhabitants but I do not read the names for a good 10 seconds while replaying the afterpart. To my surprise, I was staring directly at the exact same girls door phone. It was in fact the only place I had stared the entire time witout realizing it..
I found that abit spooky and hurried away pondering this surprise.
To this day, I still cannot explain exactly why I ended up there. It was definitely not intentional. From my perspective, I had walked randomly picking random directions. I was puzzled. Was this a so called “Synchronicity” and why? The person was not even on my mind when I walked past the house.. needless to say, this incidence changed that. She was now on my mind.. How often do you meet someone on vacation just to randomly stand before their house a week or two later? It has not happened to me before.
