Scariest experience I ever had that involved a ghost.


I was dating this girl. After a few dates it got intimate and she said; "I'm not a virgin because we have a ghost who has sex with me."

That's frickin' scary as hell.
Not the ghost. The Girl.

I believe several times I have felt or seen something. A shadow in the night? A cold feeling? I have no proof other than my own mental interpretations of those moments. I don't consider myself crazy or with deep rooted mental issues, but there's been nothing strong enough to make me believe my encounters were with an actual ghost/spirit.

Yes. We were living in a small house built in the late 1800s. I had saw a few times a shadowy silhouette in the dining room moving around one side of the dining room table. I just sort of ignored it. After some time, I said to my husband, "We have a ghost." and he said "Yeah, I saw it."

It was the shadow of a small woman, much like many of the citizens of that particular town, dressed in a long dress. Basically, she was "light" in stature and just sort of swept through the air.

I have not seen a ghost, but something happened I cannot explain. I'm not convinced it's paranormal.

I was about 12 years old, and sitting at the top of the basement steps petting my cat. The stairs are straight steps down with a clear sight-line (no landings). The basement lights were on. Suddenly I saw a dark blur at the bottom of the steps and it was accompanied by a loud sand-papery noise. My immediate thought was "That was in my head" except, the very next thing I noticed was that my cat had stopped purring and had snapped to attention, staring down the basement steps. One side of the steps is a continuous wall, so nothing could have run past, it would have dead-ended into the wall.

I screamed for my dad, told him what I saw (he doubted me at first, but I told him that the cat saw it too and THEN he took me seriously) and he went downstairs with a knife. Of course there was nothing there, anywhere. No ways out of the basement either, just a door that was locked with a key still in it.

To this day I don't know what it was. It was much larger than a mouse, perhaps a raccoon, but why did we NEVER find an animal or even an animal carcass sometime later?

My parents still live in the house (have lived there since 1982) and it's the only questionable thing that's EVER happened there.

We live in a 100 year-old house in Ohio. Never saw any human apparitions but my wife and I both occasionally see a cat.

It seems to come in waves. We'll see it repeatedly over a few days, then nothing for months on end. Repeat. Have probably seen it 8-10 times in the 16 years we've been living here.

Occasionally I'll mention having seen it again, and the missus will say something like, "Wow, you too! I saw it yesterday!".

We typically don't even mention it anymore as it's become pretty commonplace.

No one can really be sure if it's a ghost or some other phenomenon, but I have had a few weird things happen.

The first one I'll share was after a very close friend of mine passed away. I lived only 10 minutes from the hospital. After they passed I walked home extremely distraught.

I went to my room, lay down on my bed, tears just streaming down my face. I then felt a hand squeeze my hand. I jumped up and gasped. Was it a dream? I hadn't fallen asleep as far as I know?

I guess I'll never be sure.

Yes, I have.
We were staying at a supposedly haunted hotel in NH. It was the middle of the night and I saw the dark figure of a man, I took to be my husband headed for the bathroom walking past the bottom of the bed and around to my side of it. I raised up and looked when I first saw it, then I laid back down. I then extended my hand to my husbands side of the bed, and was surprised when I felt him laying there.

Wow, it's always the same cat? Is it just a glimpse, or does the cat come around to be petted? Do you ever find cat hair? So many questions!

I did not experience visibly but there were two encounters I wouldn't dismiss for other explainations.

I was with my ex bf in a rented service apartment, can't recall was it first day we moved in or after. That night we were about to retire in bed and talking normal stuff, when suddenly a distinct sound interrupted us, instinctively we both went silent and looked at each other.
It was a very clear sound of someone sighing... right next to us. It took a moment before I asked if he heard it and he said yes, our innate reaction was to check the phone and it was well placed, we just knew the sound didn't come from next door or outside. We both knowingly didn't speak out any obvious thoughts and brushed it off that night. Later I refused to stay in the apartment anymore despite the 3 months lease.
I remember feeling rather uneasy and a strange stillness when first stepped into the apartment, there was a sense of "presence" like you're being watched" or something.


This happened when I was still teenager. Me and my friend were hanging out and walking through a quiet park late at night. Out of nowhere, we both smelled a scent of Jasmine flower passed by us. We looked around there was no frangipani trees and no one else was around, we just hurried our footsteps out of there. The chilling part of it is Jasmine scent or frangipani trees are said to be related with spirits.
