The Weirdest Places People Have Ever Bumped Into A Friend

Reddit user Eshoosca asked: 'What was the weirdest place you bumped into a friend?'

It's a small world, and nothing proves this more than when you randomly bump into a friend or someone else you know (or used to know) accidentally.

I've bumped into old friends at my local library, gym, and Starbucks. It's not all that strange, and if we used to be good friends, it's nice to catch up.

However, sometimes, we bump into friends in weird places or through some strange coincidence. I switched workplaces and apartments a few months ago. On my first day, when I took the train home, I bumped into a co-worker at my previous workplace.

We didn't know each other too well, but it turns out we live in the same neighborhood and take the same train home!

Redditors have some stories about randomly running into friends in weird places as well, and are ready to share.

Often, best friends can be the most important people in your life. They are the person you can call if you need someone to talk to at 2 AM; the ones that will keep your secrets, support even your most convoluted aspirations, and help you with whatever you need, even if they think it's crazy.

However, not all friendships, even those with your best friends, last forever.

Sometimes, friendships end naturally, as the two people grow apart. Other times, the friendship ends because one party did something malicious or made an irreparable mistake.

Redditors have plenty of stories of those kinds of friendship enders, and are ready to share.

It can be daunting when one person in the relationship starts to look at your bond differently... when one friend begins to view another in a romantic way. What happens then?

The women of Reddit have shared their stories of what happened when a close friend of theirs confessed to having romantic feelings for them, and as always, the stories are all very different.

Many people seek validation from people they call "friends" when they're actually only acquaintances.

Do you ever contemplate your social life and wonder just how good a "friend" these people purport themselves to be?

Are they actually there for you when you need them or are you just another notch on their friend lists on their respective social media?

The term gets thrown around loosely too often and it seems many friendships are either taken for granted or are conditional. Those aren't friendships.

You got to have friends.

There are shows about the beauty of friendships.

There are shows about the downfall of those connections.

I think we should focus more on the downfall.

We often turn a blind eye to the people we can and have called friends.

That can be a big mistake.

Don't let loneliness lead you.

Sometimes people just have to go.
