Do You Believe In Fate?

I don't know if it's just because of the uncertainty, that my mind is warping the littlest things into something that I hope is meaningful. Do you believe in fate? Or that God sends you signs that things will work out in your favor eventually if you keep working towards it? I'll share with you a few of the "signs" that I believe may be trying to tell me something, just maybe.
In the past... Oh, I don't know, 6 months, I've either read, watched on tv, or witnessed MANY stories of younger women falling in love with older men (or vice versa), overcoming difficulties, and then marrying. Some of these stories include: The Time Traveler's Wife (Henry and Clare are 8 years apart), Pretty Little Liars (Ezra and Aria have a student teacher relationship, and Aria's father marries one of his students after divorcing his earlier wife), 1984 (Winston falls in love with a woman 13 years younger than he), Vampire Academy Series (Rose and Dmitri have a student teacher relationship, 7 years apart), The Scarlet Letter (Hester marries a man significantly older than herself, they actually end up getting divorced... Well, it's complicated), and there are MANY more instances that I just can't think of right now. It just seems like EVERYWHERE I turn, there is my situation reflected in a book, TV show, movie, etc. It's just extremelyyyyy odd that this many of these stories are popping up in my life NOW. But... During the summer, I asked God (yes I'm religious) to give some signs if I should just give up on this, or if I shouldn't give up, just wait. And this has made me sort of believe that I should keep hoping, and just wait until graduation and not to move on quite yet. Also, the teacher I'm fond of kind of told me that he loves me. I mean... He's my marching band instructor, and after a championship competition, he told us "He would love us no matter what". So then it was just me and another kid and him, and he said "I love ya..." But that could be the sign that I asked God to give me. I just don't know, still. I keep thinking it's in my head. My friend Jamie agrees with me in the fact that those are signs most likely. What do you think? Please don't laugh in my face about being all superstitious. Thankss (:
