I will be sitting at my desk doing the usual, posting in here. Or downstairs watching TV. Or just sitting reading. Doing my usual things and then I feel a big breeze like someone runs past me really fast. It's the same feeling as a person running past close to you, your hair moves, you feel the breeze. No fans on, no a/c. I get this a LOT. Upstairs, downstairs. Like someone is in a big hurry and they run by on their way to somewhere.

I have never had that happen, but I think if I did it would creep me out.

Do live in an old house?
I lived in a house that was really old and even when the windows were closed, there would be sudden drafts.

Not in that sense, but I have felt someone in the same room with me and when I look around no one is there. I have come to realize someone was there at these times, just not there physically.

I have not personally had *any* paranormal experience. But my husband told me that once he was playing the piano at the Delta Saloon in Virginia City Nevada and someone tapped him on the shoulder. When he turned around to look, no one was there.

I had a weird experience just after moving into my "haunted" old house.

There is a hall that runs down the middle of the house from the bedrooms to the kitchen, as I walked down it light bulbs in the hall, bathroom, one of the bedrooms and breakfast nook went out right as I walked by them down the hall on one of our first evenings in the house. The lights were already on; the bulbs just went out!

I first thought we had a serious electrical problem, then I wondered if it was just a bizarre coincidence (the house had been unoccupied since the year before), then later as other strange things began to happen I blamed it on ghosts.

I still don't know what caused it... and I haven't had a repeat of the incident since.

Yes, my house is really old. 2004. lol
Sorry, it is not a draft. If feels like someone runs past me. It does not happen constantly, just now and then, a few times a week. I know the difference between a draft and someone invisible running past me!

Oooh the light bulb thing. One old apartment complex (built in the late 1980's) I lived in from Feb.2000 to Jan.2004 had issues like that. Had constant lightbulb blow out issues. And most of the time it was when I just put a new one in. It would blow out right when turning the light on. Not the same as you walking by and them going out. Always in the second bedroom where other weird things would happen.
But...
When I go walking in the evenings around my neighborhood, the streetlights that are way up high...they go out as I walk by them. Now that creeps me out. Because then I am walking in the dark. I can walk by several, they all go out one by one. Explain that naysayers.
