What do you do when you sit next to someone incredibly attractive on a bus, or a plane, but you don't muster up enough courage to talk to them? Or you stroll by a hottie in the grocery store and can't get them out of your mind, even days or weeks later? You post your predicament on Craigslist's Missed Connections of course!
Every day, millions of hopeful romantics turn to the internet to try and regain those fleeting feelings of love, lust, or simple curiosity. Some spill their entire story, while others depend on just a few details to decide their destiny.
Here are five of my favorites from the past few days.
Los Angeles, California: Scott from Nocturnal wonderland!! - w4m - 24
I met you at nocturnal wonderland, I was with my friend and we were looking for a chill place to smoke. I sat next to you and idk how we started talking but it was your first rave and I was into you so I decided to give you an amazing head massage during kaskades entire set and smoke you out. I named you "scales" because you're a libra, and you told me you live in Rancho. At the end of the night I gave you my number but sadly MDMA blurs your vision so I probably didnt give you the correct number. I want to see you again, it's not a marriage proposal but I really think that we could share some great times together.
Des Moines, Iowa: theatre guy - m4m
Hi. I’m looking for the sandy blond hair guy that I was talking to tonight that believed in dragons.
Boise, Idaho: long shot - t4m (you was in prison)
lol i soo know this is a hella long shot but a friend i had that was in prison wanted me to become a pen-pal with you we only wrote a few times i always wonder whatever happend to you.... and i cant remember the date you got out but i do know your birthday month and inmate number...and to help things out your last name is wilson so if you by chance read this or not but it is a long shot hit me back would like to know how your doing...
Some aren't looking for a missed connection at all, but rather use the category to catch a cougar!
New York City, New York: Cub for Cougar - m4w - 28
Is your marriage lacking? Are you feeling complacency, boredom, loneliness, and indifference? I promise to give you passion and make you feel like a woman again. I am 5'10, college educated, athletic but above all clean and very discreet.
Some start their search with a missed connection in mind, but also offer up their services to anyone who may be interested.
Jackson, Mississippi: Pump It Up - m4w - 36
We were at a party yesterday afternoon. We chatted, and I couldn't help feel like there was a connection. BTW you are my son's teacher. If by the 1 in a million chance you read this and felt the same I would love to have some fun. Or if you are a woman who has ever had that experience at a birthday party, but did not follow through with those feelings I could help. 5'11", 180, brown hair, blue eyes, in good shape.
