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.

Another week complete means another batch of glorious Missed Connections to remind you that unconsciously glancing at someone in Starbucks may lead them to believe that you two are meant to be…or just meant to meet up for a drink.
Newly Blond on D. Circle- m4w – 27 (DP Cirle And Red Line)

I used to see you when I boarded the red line at Grosvener. I never knew where you got off when I worked in Bethesda, but wondered often. You wore muffler earphones which I found intimidating, but inticing… What is a beautiful girl like you listening to? Really, I want to know… Music fan myself. Before today, I was curious, very. Today, I think your dress was green although your hair has transformed (blonde now… I didn’t recognize you at first… the second time you were on the phone… passed me and said you were going to the library…)Anyway, not a stalker but you stood out. You certainly picked the outfit today… conservative but DAMN… You disrupted my reading for the rest of the time I tried to study (it haunted me…. no success on the reading front). You are, (I would like to find out) if nothing else, unconditionaly attractive. Anyway, once, you smiled at me as I was headed to town on the metro, got off the train, left me dissapointed, but that was before. I have some stuff to study, hope to see you at the circle/starbucks dupount soon. Or just let me know where the “library” is. I certainly, as long as I recognize the new hair style, won’t let you pass unnoticed.

Wow, this gal must have really made an impression! So much so, in fact, that it caused this guy to have a full typed-out conversation with himself. Also, is “library” a secret code for something?

You work at Lost Boys. You had your dog in with you. I almost ended his life. Then i mentioned I couldn’t afford your store.

I so badly want to know more about this encounter, like how did he almost kill her dog? Tell me more!

drunken yoga party apology – m4w – 36 (gaithersburg)

hi… just wanted to say…
We connected deeply and really fast at the party.
Fruit loops rules.

I had too many mojitos. I didn’t really know how to take that crazy energy.
I was kind of an overbearing prick.

Just wanted to say, I’m sorry for being over the top, I really dig you, and I’m glad we got to connect on a really honest level…. seeing past the subtext and all. I acted the way I did because that kind of connection just never happens and I was a bit blown away.

So… thanks.

I chose this one for its title. Drunken yoga party? Fruit loops? Mojitos? Is this what those meddling kids are doing these days? Oh wait, he’s 36…

Bethesda – Pretty, Sexy Blond at Woodmont & Bethesda ave – m4w (Bethesda)

I’ve seen you before and always thought you were very sexy. You’re twenty plus or minus a few years. I hope you’re at least 18! Blond with some roots. I’m with hat and pony-tail. Please get in touch.

Attention all males. Nothing, and I mean nothing, wins a woman’s heart like pointing out the fact that she needs a dye-job ASAP.

Third Edition – hot blonde checking IDs – m4m (Georgetown)

Sunday night, you have longer wavy blonde hair and were checking the IDs. You looked rather long at mine and then made some serious eye contact after looking. It’s a long shot because I am pretty sure you are straight, but you never know now-a-days.

I was in a multicolor striped shirt and came in with a big group of people. Dark blonde/brownish hair, blue eyes.

I hate to tell you this buddy, but it’s actually part of his job to look at your ID and then at you.
