You might like to read a book (or perhaps it's a paper) by C.G. Jung, entitled "On Synchronicity". He addresses this issue. I don't remember whether he ever mentions the number 37, but I doubt it.

Most likely you see specific numbers that somehow has left more clear imprint in your memory. It is somewhat comparable to the mind of an architecht that only pays attention to the structures that are on his field of interestest.
Well, it is just my opinion.

yep. 37 is common for me to see, I note seeing it, but I don't take it for much meaning. I mean, yes, I see it on a daily basis. On the money sheets, in change, on the clock, serial numbers, ect. But it's not a big deal to me.
I see the numbers 6, 9, 11, 13, 22, 33 and other double digits much more often.
In reality, I do believe, since this is only my opinion, that if you consciously (and somehow unconsciously) make it important in some fashion to see a grouping of digits versus another grouping, then that is what you will see.
If you tell yourself that it's a bad sign, and fear it, it will still happen, only the way you look at events and the events themselves will recapitulate your fear of it.
Whereas, if you look forward to it, and think of it as a good sign, it's more for affirmation.
13:37 military, is 1:37 PM. I used to see this alot. I would get home on the weekends, and it would be 1:37. It was fun for a while, but I appreciate double digits more now and so I see them more often.

Thank you for your replies, but you're all more or less trying to explain why I see it. I've been more curious about why I'm not the only one.
I guess it could all just be coincidence, but I always find it strange that I meet other people who see that same particular number. That's the aspect I can't explain.
I hope you are already confused enough to start pondering what the meaning of the number could be for you. Really, as I said in the beginning, I think the only one being capable of understand it's meaning, is you. Well, I hope you won't take seriously anything said above.

Here's another one for you, I am 37 Years Old. I saw this number a lot when I turned newly 37. I'll be thirty eight in March, then I suppose I will see 38 all the time.

Ha, ok I came to the thread because when I was in high school, my girlfriend used to abbreviate my name as 37, because I have three letters in my first name and seven in my last. I still notice it, but assume it's because I have a connection with the number.
Right after I closed the thread out I went to watch a show on Hulu. I decided to watch an episode of "Community" that I had already seen.
At 47 seconds into the show he mentions 37. Ha, just thought I'd add this.
