Update: New Craigslist Posting Claims The Fat Woman On The Boston T Was A Bully

The saga of the fat woman on the Boston T line rages onward. Now, someone has written a new Craigslist missed connection post claiming that the woman herself is the bully, because she allegedly sat on a “kind, older woman” and the original douchebag target, effectively pinning them both down.

Here’s the new Craigslist posting, after the jump: Keep reading »

Craigslist Missed Connection Takes Down Fat-Shaming Subway Douchebag

UPDATE, Friday 4p.m.:  There’s an update to this post here!

The world would feel like a more just place if we could (literally or figuratively) beat up every bully in the schoolyard. We can’t do that. But we can take to Craiglist’s Missed Connections to call out sociopathic, sadistic fat shamers who tell random strangers to “lose some weight” on the Boston subway.

Take, for instance, this incredible Missed Connection addressed to “the shitstain who made a woman cry on the T — 30 (Stony Book T Station)”: Keep reading »

This Guy Is Asking The Interwebs For Help Finding His Missing Crush

So, once upon a time, a boy from New Zealand got lost in Hong Kong on New Year’s Eve and met a girl from America: ”I was just walking around and admiring the lights and found this girl just crying on the side of the road … I went and tried to help her out. She was lost. She’d lost all her friends.”

After the boy cheered her up with his “undeniably bad sense of humor,” he took her out for drinks, and she eventually found her friends again. At 6 a.m., the party ended and she left.

However, before she took off, she dropped a romantic comedy-style bomb on the dude. Leaving the boy with her name, her hometown (Washington, D.C.), and her picture, she challenged him to “find her.” And off she went. Keep reading »

The stories that live in Craigslist’s Missed Connections board are often the stuff of movies. A user at Reddit found one of its greatest gems this week: a post written by a man looking for the girl he spent Thanksgiving with in 1973. Pass the tissues please!

This Craigslist Missed Connections Post Awesomely Tells Off A Street Harasser

A Minneapolis woman who is now pretty much my hero seems to have gotten fed up with the helpless feeling that comes along with being leered at on the street. She posted an open letter to the man who shouted nasty comments at her from his car on Craigslist Missed Connections, basically voicing the internal monologue of every begrudging catcall recipient there ever was.

The woman, who calls herself “the blonde you shouted at,” tells it like it is and explains just how damaging the dude’s actions are with statements like:

…Thanks to you I would spend the entire train ride home feeling scrutinized and gross because you didn’t have the willpower or maturity to keep your mouth shut; that your wife and daughters or at the very least your mother deserve better than a cowardly man who shouts at women from the safety of his car.

This May Be The Weirdest Craigslist Missed Connections Ad Ever

This May Be The Weirdest Craigslist Missed Connections Ad Ever

Waffle & Wolf is a waffle shack in Williamsburg, Brooklyn, that serves all manner of amazing waffles, both savory and sweet. Apparently, Waffle & Wolf is also where a reddish-haired man works that reminds this Craigslist poster of her deceased father. At first, the ad reads like a woman searching for a potentially long-lost family member — could the ginger waffle maker be her half-brother?! But no. She indicates that despite the resemblance, the chances of them being related are slim — but couldn’t they pretend for the sake of her incest-fantasy? Yes, this Craigslist post (which has since been deleted) quickly goes from sweet to sexual and also really kind of sad. Keep reading »

We’ve read our fair share of weird missed connections — car accidents, “You were the drunk girl,” or “You’re a cocktail waitress at the Hustler Casino.” But, this one trumps all. Listed in Los Angeles’ “M4W” section and called “I grabbed your boobs on Sunset,” it tells the tale of a man who tripped, tried to grab onto something to find the nearest thing to be a girl’s boobs, and in the process he ripped off her shirt… Keep reading »

Confession: I am pretty obsessed with Craigslist’s Missed Connections. It is my life goal to find one dedicated to me, and therefore I check them every day — so far, to no avail. After some deep contemplation, I’ve decided that the way I live my life is not necessarily conducive to the mysterious and sexy aura that tends to spark a Missed Connection. I’m not really a “wink and flip my hair” type; I’m more of a “trip in front of a large crowd while carrying a carton of eggs” type. After the jump, a few examples of Missed Connections based on my life that, alas, I will probably never get… Keep reading »

Girl Talk: I Responded To A Missed Connection Ad

I’ve accomplished a few really great things in my life — losing 100 pounds, getting sober‚ but I’m not sure anything has been as personally satisfying as the day that I had a Missed Connection posted about me.

If you’re not familiar, Missed Connections is the section on Craigslist where dudes post about hot girls they saw but were too afraid to talk to, and vice-versa. The idea of being chosen, spotted out of all the rest as uniquely attractive and compelling is like a low-rent fairytale that takes place on the R train instead of in a castle. Keep reading »
