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.

From the halls of the State Department to the aisles of Costco, love knows no bounds. Neither do Missed Connections. This week, we found romance in Potbelly, at a Jonas Brothers concert, and wherever you might get your blood drawn in Rockville.

I am a tall (6’5”), MWM who works in SA-1. I continue to be surprised and impressed by the large number of tall, attractive women that I see every day. You are making everyday better and better. While I do like my job, you provide me with extra motivation to come to work everyday!

So, to all of the tall, attractive women that work in SA-1, you all look fantastic!!

Your tax dollars hard at work.

Wanted to meet you at the Jonas Brothers Concert – w4m – 30 (Verizon Center, Section 405)

You were with your daughter and small son, who was wearing a white baseball cap, in section 405. I was with two ten year old girls standing in the entryway to the section the entire time. We exchanged several smiles and glances, and I thought there might have been a spark. If you read this and are interested in getting a coffee sometime, write me and tell me what kind of shirt and shoes you were wearing.

Apparently Joe, Nick and Kevin weren’t the only heartthrobs at the concert that night.

You were on your way out, I had just arrived. We exchanged looks, I suspect my eyes were as a deer’s in bright headlights–you were radiant. You have a beautiful light caramel complexion, and gorgeous mile long legs.

How about coffee (I just bought three pounds!) sometime?

The ladies love a guy who buys in bulk.

You drew my blood – w4m – 23 (Rockville)

I was very very attracted to you. I wish I would have given you my number or something…

Bella, is that you?

glanced at potbelly today – m4m – 34 (dupont circle)

Today at around 7 pm at potbelly in dupont circle. I am with my deaf friends by table in my gray sleeveless tshirt and khakis shorts with sage croc shoes and dirtyblond hair and green eyes. You, sort of tall tan skin blond hair with striped shirt and blue khakis pants with glasses for reading. We exchanged glances and smiles while I was talking to my friends. When we left potbelly, you waved at me. I didn’t have chance to talk to you or leave email address. Shall we meet again?

Maybe at California Tortilla next time?
