The other day, a black cat crossed mine and my girlfriend's path. I saw it, but my girlfriend did not.

I obviously get bad luck, but does my girlfriend?

***** You will get bad luck because you think you will, therefore you'll create it. Whether that trickles down over your gf I don't know.
I'm really saddened to see that people still believe this nonsense. Poor black cats got a bum rap somehow Lol :)
Don't believe it and you'll be safe!*****

That is just superstition, there is no evidence proving this scenario to be true. Black cat = bad luck? Going off of a belief stating that it is true, it would give you both bad luck.

That's only if you believe the superstition. I used to have a black cat; we crossed paths all the time. My "luck" was the same before I had him, the 12 years he lived at my house, and after he died.

Wow. If anything, I think you're lucky that you saw a black cat, because I never see them.

As the brilliant Stevie Wonder said, "if you believe in things that you don't understand, then you suffer. Superstition !"

Neither of you. Superstitions have absolutely no power unless you think they do. Ive had black cats cross my path frequently. No bad luck.

As long as you didn't look the cat directly in the eye, you're okay. ;/

There is no such thing as bad luck. The Bible teaches that time and unforeseen events happen to all of us (Ecclesiastes 9:11). Sometimes its a matter of being at the wrong place at the wrong time. It doesn't mean that a person has bad luck. We all get sick and make mistakes that can cause us to suffer the consequences.
