Could It Just Be Coincidence Or A Sign Of Something?

I have always believed in signs, but sometimes when I think things are signs, it turns out to just be coincidence, so how can you know the difference? Okay, here is my situation. Most of you know about my crush on the FedEx guy. If you don't then to make a long story short, I want to go out with him and his friend (my co-worker) is supposed to find out if he will go out with me. The crush has been going on for a long while and we have been talking, hugging, etc., but still no date. So, today, I took a vacation day from work to have a "ME" day. I think every single mother should do this as needed. I was not planning on getting to see my FedEx guy today because I wasn't at work. Well, I took my son to the babysitter this morning 1 hour later than I normally do and I headed to a different town to do some shopping. I was driving along the highway and sitting at an intersection waiting for me to go by so he could cross the highway and head to another town, it was the FedEx guy that I want to date. So, I'm writing this off as coincidence, right? I wasn't expecting to see him today because #1, I'm not at work and #2 because I'm going to another town to shop. But I'm still thinking, it's just a coincidence. So, I get my shopping done in the other town and go pick up my son from the babysitter. Now, I pick my son up an hour earlier than I normally do. We head on the road back to the town that I live in. We come to a 4-way stop and guess who is at the stop sign across from me? Yup, you guessed it, the FedEx guy! So, this time I wave and he waves back. So, now I'm thinking, how in the heck did this happen, neither one of us could have determined that the other would be at these "intersections" precisely at the same time. So, how is it, when I didn't expect to see this man, that I see him not once, but TWICE? What do you think? Could it just be another case of coincidence or could it actually be a sign of something? How can we determine the difference between coincidence and signs?

His friend is supposed to ask him if he would want to go out with me. Maybe he will say yes. If not then there will be no date. I've been waiting for him to ask me, but he hasn't and I know he knows that I want to go out with him because his friend told him. I figure that is enough to give him the courage to ask me out because he knows that I WON'T turn him down, but on the other hand, I have no idea if I ask him if he will turn me down or not. So, what's girl to do?

I don't have a crush on my FedEx guy, but I often see him several times a day. He'll show up to make a delivery where I work, or at my home, I may pass him on the road either or both on my way to work and home, I pass him frequently on the highway to the next town, and we may make the same stops in town. So, I would have to say seeing a delivery driver a couple of times on the road, on a day when you're running around, isn't a sign of anything. So, lets move on to the important issue here! You say you talk, hug, etc., when you see FedEx guy, so why no date? Maybe FedEx guy likes you, too, but is just shy and he's waiting for you to make a move. This is the 21st century and it is perfectly acceptable for you to ask him out! Why not see if he'd like to join you for a cup of coffee, or meet you at a community social event, or something else "non-committal" and where there are others around. Maybe your too shy to ask him out... but, you've talked to your mutual friend. Why not get a little more aggressive, without actually asking FedEx guy to go out. Maybe you and your friend could cook up a little get together with friends and your friend could invite FedEx guy. That way you would both just happen to be at a social gathering at your mutual friend's request and you might get a chance to at least talk to him outside of work and who knows where it might go from there.

wow... that could be a sign... :) maybe you were meant to see each other at that day. well, if he ask you on a date and you want to, then go on. It's really nice to have hopes but we also should tell ourselves that we shouldn't expect much, coz if we do and it doesn't conform with what we want, it would hurt a lot. Or maybe the FedEx guy wants to really date you and he stalks you hheeh... just kidding... I hope you have a great time... :)

Cause and effect is a law of the material universe. Science knows that every action has an equal and opposite reaction. Synchronicity extends this law into all of the complex interconnected web of human life. All positive and negative energy that we put out returns to us in equal and appropriate measure, as existence echoes back our inner world, sometimes instantly, but more often in our future. This is the law of balance, or karma. God has a very tidy, just and fair mind. He always perfectly balances everyone's thoughts, words and deeds with appropriate life experiences, eventually. Some of our best scientists are still trying to discover the secret to the mind of God. God's greatest creative challenge and interest - as He is programming every soul with all of the experiences that they require - is the complexity of perfectly balancing all human energy exchanges, between billions of souls over thousands of years. Understanding the law of balance helps you to accept your situation with equanimity, and gives an insight into the cosmic mind of God. Coincidences are often a sign that you are going with the flow of life, doing what your heart desires (divine will) and following your in-tuition (inner guidance - gut feeling). Meaningful Coincidences fill us with a sense of awe, even shock, as we experience more and more unlikely events. Be prepared to take off!!
