Overlooked: The Best Missed Connections of the Week

Every Friday, for some fun reading, we bring you the area's best Missed Connections on Craigslist.

Ahh, there’s nothing like an early morning Metro ride to kick off your day. Apparently, the dark, dingy tunnels over-crowded with people are a great place for romance. Or so says Craigslist’s Missed Connections. Each day plenty of people post about that cutie with the iPod they saw while peering over their copy of Express. Maybe it’s the atmosphere, maybe it’s the hoards of people, but these couples never actually speak to each other. Luckily, we’ve got Missed Connections to give them a second chance. So here’s the best of this week’s Missed Connections: Metro Edition.

You were beautiful…. I didn’t have the guts to talk to you because I was too distracted by the two guys singing obscene lyrics on the platform and then the guy’s cologne sitting next to me.
All I wanted to say was that you made my evening a little better.

Those singing guys get ya every time.

Really, the 800 exclamation points don’t make you seem desperate at all.

A blond girl is like the sun? Someone’s been on the metro for a little too long.

If she kept checking out the dog, then she might not be into you — just a thought.

ok let me think…black pants pink shirt. it was a crowded train and you were hesitant but i waved at you to come on board! there was a blue shirt guy too. you got off at adams morgan and were too quick cuz i was gonna yell “ill craigslist you” but i didnt…i had a crimson shirt with a tie with cool diamonds slash squares turned sideways. i

“I’ll craiglist you”? When did that become a verb?
