Numerous people all saying the same thing? How about if these people all said the same thing several nights apart from one another and were all from various locations?
This is the thing that began to convince me. How could all of those people be fibbing?
Could anyone even persuade such a large number to all fib ? (And keep fibbing?)
Much of the haunting stories are just stories.. but not all of them by any means.
Almost every week people coming to see my house will be telling me their personal ghost stories.
I do believe most of them, most of the time because they seem very truthfull and forthright with no agenda of personal gain or influence.
Of course the majority of the stories I an told bare no resemblance to a Hollywood horror movie, the stories are usually fairly quiet, mundane occurrences, the types of events I wouldn't be losing any sleep over, like a self-turning doorknob, the sounds of feet running upstairs (nobody there, of course)
There unfortunately ARE some who tell incredible stories (as per/Hollywood horror movie) and I usually can not believe them. One deciding true and pathetic factor in my decision not to believe is the obvious desperation of the storyteller to get a date.
Wash youself, use deoderant, wear nice clothes, speak more quietly when you actually have something interesting to say, smile once and awhile, don't brag about personal failures or bad luck or incarcerations in institutions ..and you will become much more date-able no matter what message your genetics send out, there is someone for everybody but you have to try, play by common rules as defined by civilization, ours, not the 12th centuary's.
