Synchronicity: Dialing True Love

One of my favorite life mysteries is the study of Synchronicity. It's the fundamental question in the film Forest Gump. Is life a box of chocolates? Or is there such a thing as destiny? Are coincidences - as amazing as some are - simply the human brain searching for a pattern among random events? Or are there some coincidences proof of some things just being meant to be?

Without getting into Quantum physics and such, the topic is fascinating.

I'm going to share some very incredible stories of synchronicity. Some are incredibly funny, others are tragic. All of these stories share one theme: they rely on the power of coincidence.

Last year, the story of David Brown of England made headlines. His run-in with synchronicity begins innocently enough: from a dream. One morning in 2002 after David had been out partying at the pub the night before, he awoke with a phone number in his head. It stuck with him all morning, so he decided to send a text message to this haunting phone number.

Michelle Kitson, who lived 60 miles away, got his message. It read:

"Did I meet you last night?"

Michelle was dumbfounded. She replied with a text of her own: "Who are you and where are you from?"

David explained his whole weird situation and Michelle found it strange, but intriguing. They had NOT met the night before, and easily concluded that they had never met. They text back and forth, and David reached out to her the old fashioned way - he sent her a letter with his picture. Michelle likey! She summoned the courage to finally call him. Although they were strangers, they agreed to meet. They picked a particular spot between their homes to finally meet face-to-face.

Nevermind that the dude could be some deranged serial killer.

David had gotten there first. He called the phone number once again, only to see a young woman approaching as she answered her phone. It was Michelle. "It was love at first sight for me -- I loved everything about her," David said.

They fell in love, and five years later - in 2007 - got married. Even to this day, David can't explain how destiny brought true love to these two strangers.

"I've no idea how I ended up with her number in my head,"said David.

You can bet David and Michelle's single friends are now getting wasted at the pub and hoping to wake up with a hangover and the phone number of their next true love. Alas, the closest thing to finding true love was one of his buddies getting a bad case of crabs after a night of revelry with some brunette with fake eye lashes.

Interestingly, Michelle recently dreamt a mysterious phone number herself, and after dialing it she discovered the number belonged to a divorce lawyer.

I used to draw a picture of a woman on all of my notebooks when I was in high school.

My wife -- who I asked to marry me 10 days after we met -- looks just like my drawing.

I definitely believe in stuff like this but I do feel guilty for my good fortune (in this area) when so many people struggle to find love.

By the looks of the bride, he most likely picked it up the number off the bathroom wall.

That's kinda cool...
I like to think that things like this could happen and not in some Meg Ryan/Harry Met Sally/You've Got Mail sort of way.

What a coincidence! I just dreamed that you would post about this story ... and that I'd leavet this exact comment.

Perhaps he met ANOTHER girl who gave him that number as a fake. Which would be even weirder.

No! Say it isn't so!!
That's a sweet story. I could see that as a romantic comedy movie starring Matthew McConnaghy and Kate Hudson.
Michelle better not divorce him because she will never have a love story encounter as cool as that again.

Happy Thanksgiving to you and your family!!!!
