  1. this isn’t like a situation where my gut feeling was warning me about someone or a situation, but I was visiting my grandparents about two months ago and when it came time for me to leave, it felt like the last time I was going to see my grandpa. I even mentioned it to my mom once we got into the car. It just felt like a forever goodbye I guess.

    That night I had a dream of a car veering off the road, which isn’t necessarily abnormal for me, as I constantly dream about getting in car crashes, but as it turned out, 4 days later my grandfather died in a car accident.

  2. Every time I’ve had a bad feeling at the start of a relationship, it’s been right. I’ve been sexually assaulted, cheated on, gaslit, etc, and I always knew something was wrong right at the beginning. Always go with your gut.

  3. Ok story time lol. When I was a teenager I went with my father to visit a friend of his in upstate NY. His friend has 2 sons but they weren’t home. I asked if I could ride one of their bikes cause I was bored. He said sure. My dad said “don’t get lost”. I rode straight down a hill and turned right at a fire hydrant next to a house with an American flag. Easy to get back right? I rode for a bit and decided to turn back. Turns out there are a bunch of houses with American flags next to a fire hydrant…. The roads were long and next to heavily wooded areas. Just private homes and land stretched for miles and cars hardly passed by there.

    I started to panic. At one point I got off the bike and yelled “Daaaaad!” at the top of my voice and it fell on deaf ears. Now it was getting dark.. I knew my dad’s cell phone number but I didn’t have money or access to a phone. I biked down a random road and saw a house on the corner. I figured let me take a chance and ask if I could use their phone. If my gut tells me to bail I will without hesitation. An old man opened the door. First sign looked good (*i can outrun an old man*). He said he had to ask his wife if I could use their phone (*he’s married, also good*). She said yes. I made the call and realized it went straight to voicemail cause my dad gets no service out here (*great, what now?*). I left a voicemail with a trembling voice.

    The old man offered me a ride on his pickup truck. Said we can drive around until I see something familiar. I hesitated a bit but then thought *he’s not giving me creeper vibes, he just wants to help*, so I agreed. After not even 5 minutes of driving I spotted the house! I thanked him profusely and removed the bike from the back of the truck and he waved and left. My dad asked who that was and I said a friend lol. He said “you got lost didn’t you?” and then he laughed at that voicemail for a while even though I told him to delete it. My gut was right that day.

    But things could have gone south very fast if I knocked on the wrong house…

  4. i would say it’s honestly right maybe 85% of the time…i don’t get a ton of gut feelings but I’ve learned to never ignore them. even when they’re wrong there’s usually more than meets the eye.

  5. When I was very young, about 7/8, I got really bad vibes from the stepdad of two of my friends, from day one the way he looked just set off alarm bells.

    Found out years later he’d been abusing them. The mother left him the moment she found out, he went to prison, and they’re both doing a lot better now, but that sticks with a person.

  6. Went on a tinder date, she was 21 I was 24 at the time. She seemed sweet until she started talking about her junkie ex-bf. I just straight up left.

    Turns out that she was a junkie too who wanted someone to buy her drugs.

  7. Not me, but my mother.
    One day when I was about 12 years old, there was a heavy snowfall and that same night when it stopped, my mother asked me to shovel the driveway and I did. The next morning, my father (my parents are divorced) picked me up for our regular weekend visit. After we left, my mother was alone in the house and immediately went upstairs to go take a shower, but a gut feeling came over her that she should stay downstairs for a little while so she sat down on the couch and watched TV. About 7-8 minutes later, someone starts knocking on the door. My mother opens it, and there is how she described a very handsome and tall Hispanic man she did not recognize. He asks her in broken English, “Can I shovel your driveway?” My mother looked at him with a confused look and told him “Uhm, no. As you can see, my driveway is cleared, my daughter shoveled it last night.” He still kept asking to shovel the driveway of snow, and my mother then told him to go away and closed the door. She then thought to turn on our security system. I think the man heard the beep from our alarm system and decided to stay away from the house. Ten minutes later, my mom went into the kitchen and she heard a faint bang come from next door, but she didn’t think much of it. Turns out, our neighbors were robbed by the same guy while they were out shopping. He stole most of their jewelry and cash. If my mother had gone to take a shower, she would not have heard the door open and it’s horrifying to think what that man could have done to my mom while she was in there.

    The robber was never caught. The police came to our house a couple days later and showed my mom pictures of suspects. None of the photos were of the guy she saw.

  8. Family (Me, Mom, sister and Cousin) was on our way home from our grandmas house, i get a feeling we should take an alternate route home, and not the highway we usually do.

    about 10 mins later over a small hill, the traffic had stopped and forced my mom to hit extremely hard on the brakes to not hit the stopped cars over the hill. The car behind wasn’t as fast to hit his brakes and crashes into our back in 75 Km/h. our car was totalled. No one was seriously injured, other than me getting some neck whiplash. (that i can feel from time to time still)

    Had we just gone the alternate route, like my gut wanted us too, that wreck wouldn’t have happened.

  9. When my ex boyfriend was with his now ex girlfriend

    I always had a bad feeling about her, like she was gonna do something bad or she was already doing something bad behind his back

    She cheated on him for a year and admitted it to him, and accused him of gross stuff he never did to her and everyone believed it. I still feel horrible for him and that he had to go through that

  10. My boyfriend told me to wait to ask me mom to text his mom for him to be able to go with me somewhere for a week with my family, my gut was telling me that i should of not waited an asked sooner since i knew people could make plans in the meantime. I waited as he asked to do him a favor, and he ended up not being able to go as his family already bough him a ticket for something taking place while im gone the day prior…

  11. I had a gut feeling your profile would be littered with other lame AskReddit posts that just reveal how uninteresting you are as a person and I was right.
