Have you ever had an experience where you were with a person at the same place and same time prior to “meeting” and never knew it? I did…

I met my future husband in March of 2001. Three weeks later I had my wisdom teeth removed. I had every possible side effect from dry sockets to hole in my sinus to infection to allergic reaction to the fucking antibiotic for my infection.

Despite all of this my boyfriend of 3 weeks still came to visit me, watched dirty dancing with me and brought me chicken soup. That was all he needed to do to win my mother's heart.

I failed to mention. I was told I could not suck out of a straw for 4 months without risking severe sinus complications. 18 year old me did not in fact ask my older male maxiofacial surgeon if that included blow jobs. For obvious reasons.

Anyway, he was in my childhood bedroom, looking at my bulletin board and pulled a ticket stub out of his wallet. Matchbox 20, October 22, 1997 (that was 3.5 years prior), same theater. I was in seat S2, he was in seat T4. Arms width away from each other. 3.5 years before we actually “met.”

  • That's very much coincidence I must say. It happened with me while me and cousins were in the same concert but didn't knew anyone of us were there as we didn't mention to our parents. Later on, after a month we were discussing and found out we both were present in the same concert. It happened in 1999.
