Let me give you the down low on it. It goes a little something like this for example. “Me 20 something year old guy, wearing my Phi Sig cutoff tank at the bicep machine. You hot blonde in hot pink pants at the leg abductor. Our eyes met. You smiled. Hit me up if you want to get some coffee”.
Happy Tuesday. Getting into the swing of the workweek now aren’t we? If you can remember from this post, I am sort of a self proclaimed Craigslist Queen. I will find you a sweet condo or a high end couch in less than a day. However with that said, my favorite section of Craigslist, the unsung hero if you will. It something called “Missed Connections”. Do you know about this little gem of a section tucked away under the personals section?
My friends. I wish I was joking. People actually post on here. I mean who wakes up and goes “I was at a stop light jamming out to Neon Lights (don’t judge) and I am just wondering if there were any guys that saw me and were totally digging it…..let’s go onto Craiglist and see!”
So then I thought I would find an example for you. No joke this was the second one I clicked on.
Personally if I was cruising for potential mates online. Spelling would be the first thing I would be a stickler for. I’ll translate….steering (believe that is staring?) unless you were steering the grocery cart. Isle is Aisle because we know Publix is not surrounded by water. Also, I wonder if he got a response back since he was so specific with his description of this female………
Then I was thinking like what if this is an untapped dating resource for people out there. I mean do you know anyone who was met someone from this? I think it’s slightly a little creepy but hey I guess it is a second chance at a missed connection (<–see what I did there?). I would have never have met Mark if it wasn’t for a random chance occurrence so maybe there is something out there for everyone?
Now if someone were to be writing a missed connection about my daily life occurrences it would probably go a little something like this.
So my questions for you are. Have you heard of this before? If so do you know anyone who has met this way? If you were going to write a missed connection about yourself what would you most likely be doing?
I hope you enjoyed this random musing of the day. Don’t forget about my giveaway! It’s almost over! How many of you are not checking your local Craigslist right now? xoxoxo
