This “Missed Connection Monday” is brought to you by your local Craigslist.
These are real “love notes” that strangers leave for other strangers in the ‘Personals’ section of Craigslist.
Or as I like to call it, ‘Your local serial killer hunting ground.’
WE MET AT HOBBY LOBBY – (66-year-old male, 6’2″, divorced)
You were the dark brown haired woman looking at a dog pictures and frames for your daughter for Christmas. I was the tall, older salt & pepper haired man you asked which frame to select…..I chose the darker frame. I asked you about my selection of metal art. I’m divorced, and I noticed you weren’t wearing a wedding ring. We kept eyeing each other, and you surprisingly approached. I felt instantly connected with you…..I was almost breathless. I wanted to ask you your name and to go get coffee, but you walked away and I didn’t. If you felt the same connection, please respond. I think of you sometimes, and know we’ll probably never meet again. I’m just sorry I created this possible missed opportunity.
**– Written by a SIXTY SIX YEAR OLD MAAAANNNNNNNN! – Really???? Small chat at a fucking Hobby Lobby over picture frames and metal art left you breathless??? This makes me question not only your physical health but your mental health as well. She walked away?? I would’ve fucking ran!
You were talking on your phone pushing a cart. Bland hair, very pretty! We made eye contact multiple times and felt like there was a connection. It’s a shot in the dark, but worth a shot
**No age, height or relationship status on this one but I can tell you, the only shot this guy is getting, is shot down! “You were talking on the phone…” Yeah, she was probably calling 911!
You can’t fucking spell and you had a “connection???”
FLYING J GIRL
I don’t know if you were flirting or just putting on a customer service attitude (as a guy these days… I just can’t assume). You were on the register by the front door.
I made “manly sounds” at the credit card machine.
**No specifics on this one either but trust me, your age, height and relationship status don’t matter. All the “Flying J Girl” needs to do is RUUUUUNNNNNNNNN!
You were making “manly sounds???” Dude. What the fuck??
BEAUTIFUL LADY NEEDS A ROCKSTAR! (37, single, athletic body, 6’0)
Every time I come in the store I hope to see your beautiful smile. Yesterday when I was in I said hello you turned, smiled and said you needed to grab a rockstar to start your day and laughed a little bit. Your smile and amazingly deep green eyes take my breath away. You light up the whole store and everyone around you. If you see this just know im working up the courage to ask you on a date. Please keep smiling that beautiful smile.
**My advice to you “beautiful lady.” Again. Run. Just fucking run…
ADA COUNTY COURTHOUSE
Dang! I was hoping to talk with you, sorry I was on the phone in elevator after we left mediation rooms………………your eyes and thighs drove me wild and your smile made me melt!!!! Tell me what I said to you as I went to my own mediation room and where I was sitting in the courtroom when we were given instructions so I know this is you!
**Yeah. What could possibly go wrong with this “missed connection?” Dang!
Of course, what I really want to know is how many people actually connect from these missed connections. I mean, so, loser Joe Schmoe posts his undying love and devotion for someone he made eye contact with – eye contact people, fucking eye contact – and then loser Janey Juniper is combing the “missed connection” section of Craigslist to find her eye contact Prince Charming?? I don’t get it. Like seriously. How does this work? Why does this work? Does it work?! It just sounds like a place where all the freaks meet. And don’t even get me started on the safety factors…
People laugh at me all the time because I’m very much a ‘Criminal Minds’ girl and I think everyone is an unsub. Ask my kids. They’ll tell you, “Mom thinks everyone is a serial killer.” It’s true, I do. Mostly. Whatever. What I also think is that this whole “missed connection” thing is a breeding ground for a myriad of criminal activity and it’s only a matter of time before a reality crime show is named after it. But I wanna’ know what YOU think.
Yea or Nay on missed connections?
OR have you ever participated in this type of online
stalking connection?? If you have I would love to make fun of you for it hear all about it!
