Missed Connections

Has anyone ever used the "Missed Connections" tab on Craigslist before? When I lived in New York we would check them out at work because a lot of them are hysterical.

Check them out in your city and have a laugh… or you might find someone who is looking for you.

My friend “Steve” who lives up in Boston actually found the guy he had missed.

Steve was at the gym, working hard on his bod when this “Adonis” comes over to the treadmill next to him. He does 40 minutes of cardio and is about to pass out but he can’t help but admire the guy next to him. He showers up and hopes that the guy is there in the locker room so he can strike up a conversation.

He was not there. He went home and wrote a “missed connections” post on Craigslist. After he posted his missed connection he decided to look at what had already been posted that day.

He refreshed the page and the first one there had the title, “I was next to you at _____ gym” He read the ad and it turned out to be the guy next to him.

They e-mailed… chatted on AIM and met up for drinks tonight. I have yet to hear back from him so I am guessing he had a fun night.

    I am hoping that this post finds you. I know that it could quite possibly be the most humiliating first date that you have ever been on, but I am willing to look past that.

    I thought we had chemistry sitting at McMenamins sharing that basket of Cajun Tots while drinking the Terminator Stout. I really felt like there was a connection there. I found you to be intelligent and witty and looked forward to further conversation with you.

    At some point in life, everyone has gambled on a fart and lost. It just happened to be on a first date in the passenger seat of my car. Please don't feel bad. The package I sent you with Pepto the next day and the note that said "First dates are always a crap shoot. Call me" was meant to be funny, not offensive.

    I have gambled on a fart and lost on multiple occasions. The first time I did it was very memorable. It happened when I was five and sitting on my uncle's lap. I am lactose intolerant, but love cheese. I probably win 95% of the time, but I don't think anyone wins 100% of the time. That's why they call it "gambling". I'm the last person to judge you for crapping your pants. In fact, I am impressed by your boldness. The timing on the other hand, could have been a tad bit when you're not sitting on a heated leather seat...

    What I am trying to say is that if you want to go out again, I would be more than happy to take you someplace where we can get a meal that is high in fiber and less taxing on the digestive tract.

    I await your call,

    P.S. - If you shat yourself on purpose to end the evening early…Touché…

  4. That's a great story! I'm always reading those Missed Connections too and have actually left a few posts. You'll have to let us know what happens with your friend.

  5. Oh and I should've mentioned, there's a really great book called I Saw You... that's a graphic storytelling of missed connections posts from Craigslist. It's really cool. It's all different comicbook artists and each post is a page or two-it's really cool.
