Call me a totally cynical a-hole, but I friggin adore Missed Connections on Craigslist for all the wrong reasons…Missed Connections are exactly that; the connection you think you may have shared with a person in passing—broadcast to the internet with reckless abandon.
MissConn’s come in a lot of forms. From the hilariously titled and inappropriate (see above) to the melodramatic, albeit nerdily poetic:
Words cannot describe the degree of secondhand embarrassment felt when seeing humans posting about other humans that likely didn’t recognize any interaction —boldly on the internet. Every Sunday, I spend a good 20 minutes reading through the most interestingly-titled, most descriptively located, most heartbreakingly sad/pathetic/thirsty missed connections.
But really, I guess I like them so much because it reminds me how much we all want love. Missed Connections have no age restrictions, no race limitations, no criteria aside from having a C-list account with a working email address. You really find all kinds on that thread, and they are all searching for the same thing.*
*well some are very honestly just looking for prostitution opportunities, but mostly I think these people want love…
