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.

Missed Connections are not just about cute run-ins on the Metro. It’s also a place where you might find your bitter/lonely ex ranting and writing long-winded poetry about you. Here some people who just can’t let go, and gosh darn it, they want the world to know.

And there’s no comfort in the truth
Pain is all you’ll find

I was honest with you, because that’s the right thing to do. And then you hated me for it. I can’t be involved in something that we both know isn’t right. Yet somehow, I’m the only one that’s wrong.

We agree. So, so wrong.

I dont have anything to post at the moment, I know you will see this and wonder if its for you….and it is. But for the time being I’m 2 busy 2 write anything 2 you right now. I know you read these…probably daily like me, knowing just how much alike we are. I even check here in DC and I’m not even around anymore. But before too long I will take the time to put my words on paper for you, since I can rarely reach you any other way.

Nothing to post? This looks like a solid 5 sentences to us.

I Truly Do Miss You, Yes I Do… – m4w – 39 (D.C.)

You opened it, Good luck. Tonight at midnight your true love will realize they love you. Something good will happen to you at 1:00 PM – 4:40 PM tomorrow, it could be anywhere. Tonight at midnight they will remember how much they loved you as well. You will get the shock of your life tomorrow, a good one. Get ready for the shock of your life, a good one. If you break the chain you will be cursed with relationship problems for the next 2 years. Karma. If there is someone you once loved (or still do) and can’t get them out of your mind, repost this in another city within the next five minutes. Its amazing how it works!

It is sad when people you know, become people you knew….
It is one of life’s tragedies when you meet someone that you know is meant to be but due to unexpected circumstances and misunderstandings becomes someone you knew.
And when you can walk right past someone that at one time in your life was a big part of your life…
And how you used to be able to talk to them for hours about the little nothings in life…
And now you can barely look at them and they at you…
And all you have left is that aching feeling in your soul…

If you really miss someone a past love and can’t seem to get them off your mind…then repost this titled as “I Truly Do Miss You.”

Whomever you are missing will surprise you.
Don’t break this, for tonight at midnight, your true love will realize they love you.
And…something great will happen to you tomorrow.

Karma: If there is someone you loved or still do and can’t get them out of your mind, re-post this in another city.
Tonight they will remember how they love you as well.
You will get the shock of your life tomorrow .

Why is a 39 year old man starting chain letters on Craigslist?
