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.

This week, we’ll start out with a two Craigslisters who will not let the cool fall weather stop them from enjoying some cold, sweet treats with a side of romance. And we’ll end with a couple of long-winded fellows, one of which is severely punctuation- and grammar-challenged.

I saw you in Mr. Yogato. It has been so long since we last saw each other. I know,we have become different people…but it must have been fate that our paths have crossed once again.

And yes…I like my women how I like my yogurt…tangy.

Please tell me, what qualities make a woman “tangy”?

Every time I go in your store I want to giggle when I look at you. You make me feel like I’m in middle school again with a crush. As weird as that is, it’s special to me.

You probably won’t see this, but I want to get over this so I can ask you out on a date without laughing.

Take care gorgeous,

Love the subject line!

Kevin at National Airport last night – w4m – 26 (DCA)

You were flying stand-by and could not get on your flight because it ended up being fully booked. I was on a layover that kept me in the airport all night. We chatted for a bit while getting coffee at Dunkin’ Doughnuts and next thing you realized you missed the last Metro of the evening and I feel like it was my fault since I kept your attention instead of just leaving you to your own thing. Anyway, we chatted until about 2 a.m then finally dozed off only to awake to the sound of ticket agents and bustling passengers… and me in your arms oddly enough. But I liked it.

I am not sure why we did not exchange proper information but I really wish we would have. I don’t live in DC and I don’t really get there much but I am a Flight Attendant so if you read this drop me a line and let me write you a buddie pass to me in Orlando for coffee some day.

So two strangers held each other in the night in the middle of an airport terminal–which, by the way, is really weird–and still somehow managed to not trade info? There is no excuse.

we glanced at each other, at metro center, more than the usual glance of strangers, and then I said, to you, hi how are you, my name, is x, and then you siad, my name, is y, and then I said to you: dear, I have reached the point of my life where I want to settle down, would you mind if we drink and dine, to see if we match, and you siad, that is fine, bro, why not try it, what would I lose? so, I said, why not exchange some contacts, so that we may get down to bussiness, you said, done, I emailed you, you came for dining and drinking, we found that we are match, now, we dated the day of wedding, at long last, we wed, happily here after, now, we are living together, flourishing, each one of us persuing his or her dreams, things are great, now, aren’t we happy? look at your smile?

two months from now, december: we met here, and the above was just a dream realized, dear, if you would have accepted my offer, frank offer, we would have been dream couple, it is not too late now, would you, let me repeat, give us the chance to check if we are match and then sleep single bed at night for the rest of our lives, say, I do, I do, and then smile baby, aaaaaaaaaaaaaaah. look at your smile.

Yo, bro, how many, commas, can you fit, in one craigslist post: While your delivery, is weak, I admire your, ability to dream?

Why is it so hard for a good man to find a good woman to share his world with. I go to work everyday and I go to church when im off work, I own my own home and everything seems to be in order but I cannot find a good woman or even a desent woman. Im looking for a woman that knows her worth and that is very confident about herself. A woman that can have my back and push me to be the best man I can be, because in return she will get the man of her dreams. I will be that sensitive man you need in your down times and that hard man in your weak times. I like to travel with my woman and go see plays or even just go out for a night of dancing on the town. If you are a good beautiful woman than please contact me because I am everything and more of what I say.

It’s probably so hard for a “good hard-working man” like you to find a good woman because you are spending your time posting long anonymous messages on craigslist. Then again, I’m the one who is reading all of this so…what does that make me?
