Paths are funny things. You never know when/where they will cross. Some times the timing is right and sometimes it’s completely off the mark. 

And at times it can be right for one person and wrong for the other. That’s hardest because you know your paths won’t intersect for long. 
Oh to travel on the same path so not to fear the dissection of the intersection. 

Traveling a path alone is probably the safest option.
