Cute story - but I will admit my first thought was they were going to find out that they were related. :-0
Charming coincidence, but not “fate.”
If anyone’s seen the Korean film “Windstruck,” it ends the exact same way. Weird!
I hate that word.
Cool story, though.
Like Costanza at the beach.
My husband and I were at a toddler theme park on the same day in London, Ontario when we were both 3 (neither family lived in London). Both families had labeled “slides” from the same date. We are not in any of each other’s pictures, but possibly slid down Jack and Jill’s hill at the same time.
10 years later I went on a six-week exchange to a tiny town in Quebec ... we both attended the town summer festival on the same day (one-day festival ... the only thing to do in those parts, so “everyone” was there).
We could have saved six years had we met that day. Been married 27 years now, and it was “love at first sight” when we finally did meet in ‘89.
I recently discovered that a Freeper and I attended the same USAF technical school at the same time. I was one class ahead of his. The school lasted nearly a year, so we certainly met at some point.
My sister and her husband were looking through my wedding album one day and realized his band played at my wedding. He appeared in the background on a picture of her dancing.
Turns out that we knew each other as kids, our parents had been friends, and we didnt recognize each other. It was kind of weird for a while, it was a feeling like I had just found out I was dating my sister or something. She felt the same. We dated for a few more years.
My little ice pick in the eye and I have been together 26 years now. Cant imagine that there will be a day when one of us will wake up without the other.
My wife and I took our ACT test at the same place. We were from different high schools and lived in different towns.
We didn’t officially meet until 2 years later.
