Sure, sometimes. But too many or too obvious ones? Nope!
Yes. Witnessed several.
Oh yes...no doubt about those little meaningful connections we call coincidence. Carl Jung, the Swiss psychiatrist who founded analytical psychology, called them synchronicity.

And something else I picked up somewhere:
"I don’t think there are coincidences. The coincidences are
little hellos from heaven."
Absolutely . . . It's called statistics.
When you have high numbers those "Weird" situations or circumstances aren't all that uncommon.
Two definitions of coincidence from the internet:
a remarkable concurrence of events or circumstances without apparent causal connection
an occasion when two or more similar things happen at the same time, especially in a way that is unlikely and surprising
Assuming your sample is representative of the data group you are studying, statistics is good for examining correlations.
I think most things happen for a reason. That's just my personal opinion.
