People Share The Biggest Coincidence That's Ever Happened To Them

Knowable

Well that's odd. No?

There are just some moments in life that are just too strange to be random? But it's quite possible life really is just that random. There are implausible situations like sharing the same middle name as your lover or discovering a long lost twin, or finding your hair beret from kindergarten while you're skinny dipping in the ocean; that fall under the moments you swear you can't "make this stuff up" even of you tried category. Those are the times when you have to either leave it all up to the possibility of the random or that there is divine power at play.

Redditor u/Ashaliedoll was wondering what deja vú moments we've all experienced by asking.... What has been the biggest coincidence you've experienced in your life so far?


Adventures in Babysitting! 

When I was in high school my best friend had just moved to town with her family, including her older sister who had a baby when she was 17. I spent a lot of time at her place and babysat the baby occasionally. She moved away a couple years later and we eventually fell out of touch.

Cut to 2015, I meet a guy online, we hit it off and became FWBs and hang out quite a bit. In 2017 he gets a Facebook message from a young man claiming to be his son. The time frames and people involved all add up and yes, it is indeed his son. He is telling me the story, mentions the mother's name and holy f---, it's the same name of my best friend's older sister. Turns out I was babysitting his kid he didn't know he had back in 1995. I had pictures of me with the baby and everything. Hurray_for_Candy

Kismet! 

I lived in an apartment in San Francisco for several years. I moved out. A couple of years later, I met a girl and we started dating. She lived in the exact same unit that I had lived in. I moved back into that unit. We have been married for 25 years. Goldenbears55

Secrets are heavy. Holding a problem or discomfort inside seems to have its own extra dose of gravity. It feels lonely and usually, the best and only way to lighten that load is to get out.
