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.

C’mon people, it’s just bad form to pick up someone wearing a wedding ring. But this week’s Craigslisters don’t care how big that rock is. Either that, or they’re not convinced it’s a wedding ring at all. Sleazy or not? You decide.

Friday, June 12th at approximately 7 pm at the Shell Station at the corner of Old Georgetown and Woodmont.

You: Dark (black or blue) Carrera 911, incredible smile, smelled delicious, with your Blackberry in hand, paying for a Diet Coke.

Me: Black Boxster, looking slovenly, having worked from home.

It happened so quickly I didn’t get a chance to see if that was a wedding ring on your finger or to ask you if you’d like to take a ride with me, with the top down, and with me dressed up 😉

We just puked a little.

We rode an uncrowded red line train to Union Station this morning: you were unbelievably cute in your green pants (capris, if I remember correctly). On the way out of the station you headed west and a pigeon seemed nearly to attack you. Too bad I was not heading in the same direction. I think you wore an engagement ring, which would put us in a similar situation, so this posting is even stupider than it would be otherwise, but I guess I can’t help myself. We seem to work near each other so if you find yourself feeling a little restless, well….

Sounds like the start to a beautiful (second) marriage.

I noticed your dog with its head hanging out your window then i noticed you. I saw you had a ring on your ring finger but it didnt look like a wedding ring, so if it wasnt lets talk.

What’s the difference between a pitbull and a hockey mom? She’s married!

Really. I don’t. And I didn’t. But you seemed to be all into hitting on me. How many times do I have to pretend like I’m not interested before you get it?

It was Tommy Joe’s in B-town and I was just decompressing a bit before going home. Apparently, it was ladies night out.

I won’t hit on married women. But I’m curious about you.

Never. No, really, never.

Saw you again, but this time w/ 2 friends. One with black hair I’ve seen before, the taller one was new. You were wearing a jean skirt, same beautiful smile and blonde hair…you wear a ring but I never see you with a guy? Care for some company?

Me: black hair, white shirt, jeans, smiled at you a few times, you have smiled back before.

And we thought “Did it hurt when you fell from heaven?” was a bad pick up line.
